    Xbox 360 Elite

    Microsoft is going to release an 'improved' version of their console.
    It's black, makes less noise, has a 120GB HD and a built-in HDMI port.

    The 120GB hard disk will also be available separately for $200.
    Price: +/- $479

    My opinion:

    Microsoft still knows how to rip off its consumers.
    $200 for a 120Gb hard drive!? Holy shit that's a ripoff!

    I don't know about anyone else, but I can't really see any point in having a 120GB hardrive! Maybe at a push, 40-50GB if you use it for storying loads of Music, Movies and Downloads, but even then it's over-kill. Looks like the PS3 is really starting to make Microsoft crud themself Not only that, but a Black 360? Isn't that now considered heresy?

    I know something that I wont be buying anytime soon; no wait; ever!

    Re: Xbox 360 Elite

    well before these details were released i was looking forward to it
    because the original 360 makes so much noise and gets hot as hell
    but now ill stick with the premium that is out now
    this is way to expensive i was hoping on the same or lower price
    as the premium is now and that the console will get a price drop

    but i guess that is to much to ask when the ps3 posses no threat
    and the wii well the wii just keeps on trucking but is so cheap
    that people who have a 360 will buy a wii to
    the wii really is a side console but besides that its still awesome
    and sells like mad


    thanks a mill Naruto1988 for the sig

    the ps3 still has time to recover, jeez. It's not like it's been a year yet.

    Anyways, 120 gb for $200 does seem a little ridiculous. Isn't it normally like 80 or something?

    I would get the thing, but I don't really mind the noise on the premium, and mine doesn't get hot that often if ever, so yeah. Don't really need it.
    Attitude of AO MODS, according to beast
    Because they have obtained that level they are arrogant. You have to kep in mind when you talk about these guys they are kind of dorks who probably didn't excel at much and this is their only outlet to flex their muscles. Their egos would suffer no less so the the forum suffers some more. Watch one way or another they will probably repond to this post with a threat. But there are better forums out there. Private messege Zev.

    Re: Xbox 360 Elite

    Why does everyone always assume that the PS3 poses no threat? What, because some of the most anticipated games wont' be out until the end of the year? So? That doesn't spell doom for the PS3. You guys forget that Sony sunk 2 BILLION into the PS1 before the every saw a dime of profit from it. And the ended up MAKING 5 BILLION off of it.

    So, the PS3 will take time to start...no big deal.

    As for the Xbox? Good for them. I'm not intrested in a 360 myself but if they are willing to fix the 1st gen problems and add a bit of an extra (console HDD's always cost more then non-console drives) more power to them. I'm sure it will be successful and it means I can get a 1st gen cheaper at a pawn shop if it turns out that I really have to have the really cool Mistwalker games!

    Re: Xbox 360 Elite

    Yea, I've been watching this subject for a while. I agree with Hassun, Microsoft really knows how to piss/rip off its customers. No one really even needs a 120GB hard drive unless you've downloaded every show and movie on Xbox Live which they all suck anyway so I can't see why anyone would do that, but at least if they release this thing the prices of the core and premium will go down making them that much more appealing to gamers. But that is the only pro to making this "Zephyr", everything else is just a con - literally...

    ^_^ well i guess it's something to consider if you haven't gotten a 360 yet... and if you know a rich jerk who'd spend that much for the upgrade...

    ^___^ i know just the person!
