Shouldn't it be S for Savings since it uses over 50% less energy too. :p

Does anyone know if the old 360 component cable will fit in the new 360? I did something incredibly stupid and accidentally traded in my component cable with my previous 360. Using the A/V cables is awful.

Got off the phone with Xbox support, they're sending me a replacement power supply. I should have it in about two or three weeks.

Looks like my PS3 is getting some love these next few weeks.

I really want to get a slim, but I keep telling myself no. I already have a 120GB Elite and a 60GB (that never gets played and is basically a media server in my bedroom...although, the connection seems spotty at best, even with N wireless in my house). I was thinking of trading that one in. My one BIG gripe is, no BLU-RAY still. I cannot believe more people did not complain. It's not like there is a format war anymore....Blu-Ray drives are cheap enough now. I just don't get it.

We've already established that M$ fucked up on the Blu Ray part. They were screwed if they didn't they were screwed if they did. That hasn't changed.

It's sad really... I like hitting the drive button for that stupid *ding* sound. I need to record that and make it my txt message alert sound. xD

It's too late in the product's life to change formats. I agree with VipFREAK. MS didn't have a horse in that race.

Sorry to double post

Ask the right questions, get the right answers. An internal marketing Q&A for Microsoft about confirm that Kinect will be bundled with consoles, and a $199 configuration of its new Xbox 360 will be available this fall. In its document, Microsoft said Kinect would be available as a standalone device and as "part of a bundle with the newly designed Xbox 360 console," but "we have no additional details about pricing or retail strategy to share at this time." Kinect bundles already sprouted up at GameStop, earlier this week, an Arcade bundle for $299 and an Elite bundle for $399.
An Arcade version of the new black Xbox 360 was also alluded to, although, read verbatim, the Microsoft document says simply:

Q: Will you sell a $199 version of the new Xbox 360?
A: We will offer a $199 Xbox 360 this fall.

There were no further details about this console's features, such as hard drive/onboard storage (if any) or WiFi, which is 250GB and internal, respectively, on the new Slim design. A $199 model would probably lack both. The current Arcade layout supports HDMI output so that would probably carry over, at least.
In case you're wondering, that's the promo shot of the 250GB layout, which one assumes will look the same externally. Microsoft has provided no images of the bundles or the $199 slim.



Could that the 120GB version that Tested.com came across?

How is adding a Blu-Ray drive changing formats? You do realize that Blu-Ray drives also read DVD's. I don't see how adding a Blu-Ray drive really would've screwed with MS that much. Yes, the cost probably would've went up, but Sony seems to keep their cost at $299. Essentially, they are the same console now, except the PS3 has BD. I own both systems, and enjoy both....but from a pure Media Player, I enjoy the PS3 more at this point.

The games are regular disks not blu ray. Sony probably has been taking more loss than profit on the PS3 in general in terms of what they were trying to ask for. New tech at the time they did it was a lot more expensive.

not good ones. you can probably get a crappy n router for 40 bucks new. but to get a dual n router that does 300 mbps that good would run you over 100 bucks

The only benefit 802.11N is going to give you is if you're streaming lots of large files locally on your LAN. It won't make any difference for Internet connectivity or speed.

I am selling one of my 3 360s to a coworker to get some money towards one of these new 360s. I want to keep the better system out of the following two:

I have a Halo 3 system that I got from the Hot Topic deal a couple years ago for $180 and a Arcade system from Dell for $170 like last year. How can you tell if one has a Jasper chip set if they do at all? they both have relatively the same play time, I just want to sell the one which is more likely to have the worse chip set. Thanks.

Got it, loving it so far. The top gets a little hot but it might work out for in the winter. I could easily heat up some food or keep my coco warm.

Back OT: My buddy said he was able to put a deposit down at GS to hold a system. They are expecting 3 shipments between now and July 9th. FYI: he lives in a small town.

That happened to me today and I was shocked. It's not like it's a new kind of console. This is my first xbox but they let people buy them all to ebay them. I live in a small town, also.

edit: I think I'm 166th in line. I'm hoping I can get it by July

They are NOT supposed to sell any more than 1 to a person. I would contact corprate and rat out the store. But then again I'm the vindictive type.

Very similar experience as well. I live in New York and called several local GS but none of them had any in stock. Several expected small shipments over the next few weeks, but as mentioned, there are already waiting lists. There are 2 local BB's that have them in stock, but like many others here, I'd like to take advantage of the trade-in promo.
