    Yeah I saw that. It looks pretty sweet actually. No way in hell I'd sell my xbox to upgrade... but it's a long over due shrink. I'm guessing the hold up was the finalization of Project Natal which has an integrated port on the 360 slim.

    Looks better than the original imho.

    $249 for the 360 Elite is pretty damn nice. The Arcade model is a bit of a farce since the 360 is severely limited without a HDD and MS charges you through the roof for their official HDDs. Built in WiFi is also a very welcome change.

    I love the new look, very sleek.

    EDIT: This link seems to imply that there is only one SKU of the new 360, and that will in fact cost $299 (same as the current 360 Elite).

    The Jasper 360 fixed 99% of the RRoD problems. Shrinking the GPU to 65nm is what they needed.

    Agreed. The RRoD was a major PITA. When my old launch unit finally gave an RRoD it took MS a month to send me another one. In the end I just bought a Jasper Elite unit and flogged other one when it arrived back from MS.

    My 360 just broke. Guess I'll be getting one of the fancy new "Super Elite" models.

    Rather than make a new thread, im going to post here:

    So my dad wants to get one of the new Xboxs. My little brothers want to play the latest Madden game, and our PS2 doesnt work that well any mroe. I have friends who play MW2 online, so I figure that I could get in on that.

    First of all, would 4gb be enough storage for the Xbox?
    If so, this should be adequate, right?
    Newegg.com - Microsoft Xbox 360 4 GB Black

    Is there anything else I should get for the console aside from these items?
    Also, are these decent prices, or should i go elsewhere?

    Newegg.com - Microsoft XBOX Live 12 Month Subscription
    Newegg.com - Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Xbox 360 Game Activision

    Newegg.com - Microsoft XBOX Live 12 Month Card w/Project Gotham Racing 4 12 month live subscription, extra game and headset and keyboard for live

    much better deal than just buying the subscription.

    I think that the 4 gb will be fine as long as you arent adding media and other games to the drive.

    Yea 4gb is plenty for basic things, the other ones with more space are mostly for saving whole games to run off the hard drive, and media reasons. If this is meant to only be used primary for gaming, 4GB is more than enough. $200 is a good deal.

    And as for the package Harvestor posted PGR4 sucks, that keyboard is almost useless, and the console comes with a headset. I'd rather just save $15 and get the 12month alone. If anything get that package, sell the stuff extra stuff and get your money back.

    The 4GB model wouldn't be so bad if I could install a hard disk later on if I wanted to. But since MS charges a fortune for 360 HDDs I'd be extremely weary about buying a 360 without a hard disk. 4GB may be enough for save games etc. But if I want to grab some game demos, that 4GB wouldn't last long at all.

    I bought the 4gb. I don't plan to be installing any demos and we will probably only be using a couple of games with it.

    Are you able to store game data on a regular USB key?

    I think they support up to an 8GB USB flash drive for that. For me that really doesn't cut it though. I love grabbing the demos before laying down the $$$ for game. I've got quite a few of the arcade games and a fair bit of DLC too. My 360 has the 120GB HDD and I've only got about 50GB free.

    Been playing around with the new 360Slim for a day now. Got MW2 and its loads of fun.

    One thing I would like to stress here:

    The new 360 is practically SILENT

    and thats saying something coming from me.

    I'm still not sure its working. I couldn't hear the thing until i put my ear right next to the fan and even then it was a muted sound of bearings.

    I like to Xbox because of some reasons
    1. There are games galore for the thirsty. Kameo elements of power, Project Gotam 3, Perfect dark Zero, and many more. All unique, with great effects and gaming wizardry.

    2. The Xbox360 has wireless controllers as well as internet connectivity. The premium pack presents great delights offering freedom of movement and a superb range of over 30 feet. Ergonomically designed the controller has skip wires, tangles and boomerangs.
    3. With an aim to please even the most discerning palate, the Xbox360 has an amazing variety of games. Some are exclusively designed for the box like Condemned, and Dead or Alive. Titles that have been widely acknowledge by expert gamers are: Call of Duty 2, Project Gotham Racing 3, Kameo, King Kong, and Condemned.
    4. Amazing and most welcome is the fact that over 200 Xbox games will be backwardly compatible with the Xbox360.
    5. Xbox 360 brings with it the arcade marketplace. Imagine free games, cheap games, and addictive non-stop games. The possibilities are endless and thrilling.
    6. The Graphics are stupendous and bring to life the games in virtual reality. Xbox360 has three 3.2 GH processors that run with a 500MhzATI graphics processor. Whew—let’s bow to power.
    7. Endless possibilities with the Xbox360. Games, CDs, movies and customized music. It even connects to the Microsoft media center for a complete media sensation. You can let your creativity and innovativeness take wing.
    8. The Xbox 360 is more than an everyday console. It is interactive and you can buy many things like bonus levels, episodic content, gamer specials, and gamer tag images. You can download demos, and bonus packs from game developers. A live platform with no limits marketplace for developers and publishers.
    9. The Xbox360 is a keeper of records. It creates history. The gamer card becomes your identity with name, image, scores, games you like, and your aims and mottos. This takes online fraternities a step closer to one another.
    10. Fulfils many dreams and fantasies. The games are the best, interesting, mind stimulating, and exciting. The Xbox 360 takes the gaming world forwards and offers options like downloads, online plays, movies, as well as a touch button marketplace for games.
    The Xbox360 is a must for serious gamers. It indicates your dedication as a gamer and reflects your tastes and reputation in the cyber gaming universe. Opens up endless possibilities and takes you to the next generation gaming delights.
