Amazon and Circuit City might have that new 60GB Xbox 360 SKU up for pre-order with delivery in August, but Microsoft's game console has always tended to pop up in Targets first, and this time out's no exception.
never heard of Target. Probably american thing. so u walked into the store and hey you found an empty box of xbox 360, better take a picture. havent you got better thing to do?
Released already they have done. Strong the force is with MSFT. PS3 fanboys report falsely they have.
You're so gay.. seriously.
The dark side consumes you. An advertising platform N4G's has become long ago.
No don't start you were hard enough to endure when ur sentences had structure don't become Yoda-ish
Trooooollinggggggggg is the cause of this. Fear leads to trolling, trolling leads to anger, anger leads to suffering, suffering leads to PS3 fanboyismmmmmmmm..... EDIT: @2.7, Too old you are for the training. Just kidding you'll be missing out big time if you don't. Now I'm off to get some beer and finish watching Generation Kill, Thirsty I am ,if you know what I mean.
Power of green, I AM YOUR FATHER. Join me my son, Come to the Dark side.
@Power of Green I think it time for me to join you and the Xbox 360 fanboys. Playstation 3 has nothing for me. I'm tired of the installs. I'm tired of 3 hour firmware updates every few weeks. I'm tired of getting games late. I'm tired of PS3 lacking good exclusives. I'm tired of inferiour ports. I'm tired of not having Xbox live and killer arcade games. I'm tired of Xbox 360 being the best. I was retarded with I bought a Playstation 3. I now realize that the only way to have the best is to own an Xbox 360. So can I join you?
Darth Vader SC4 PS3 edition will sell more so HA! In American Amazon it's ranked 11th compared to the inferior Yoda version ranked at 13th. And we know in Europe and Japan the PS3 version will sell more by default.
@mikeslemonade PS3 users get the crappy version of SCIV; complete with more loading, installation But lacks trophies, custom soundtracks or Rumble.
As long their no RROD and snatch disc it all good. :)
The PS3 version has better graphics. The installation cuts down the load times. Only a retard would say installations are negative. The other stuff can be updated. Where as the graphics are permanent. You cannot upgrade the 360 with a cell processor to improve the graphics.
A [email protected] POG is.
this is nothing to do with fanboyism. this is basically advertising or more specific SPAM. If this approves, N4G is now a failure.
The Xbox 360 60GB Pro bundle at $349 is outstanding value for money! With the 360, users will have access to the best games and the best online service! As such, this article is of great interest for those who have not yet purchased an Xbox 360. Also, Engadget is a respected website and has been for many years. The comments by some people in the reports section are shameful.
Engadget where one of the 1st sites to report that the 360pro was dropping the price to $299 dollars and they used target as their source http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/... http://www.engadget.com/200... Was it spam then? Now they are reporting that the same store has the 60gig pro already when most people are expecting it next month and all of a sudden it is reported left,right and sadly of center as SPAM.
-Are they planning to get rid of arcade before unpacking 60gb.
i believe they said they were still going to keep the arcade version to "give gamers a choice" if they go cheap enough im def pickin one up for Fable 2
wouldn't it make more sense if they get rid of arcade version, So they have standard hard drive all the way across.
oh ok, i dont know what the plan is about the pricing scheme yeah it would make sense but i do remember reading an article that said they were still making it, again to "give gamers a choice" i cant keep up with all these changes among consoles
@chaosatom they are discontinuing the 20gb 360 in favor of the 60gb. Also they wont have a standard HDD if the discontinued the arcade version cause people already own them and you still have to take those people into account when making games. Hopefully they will do a real price cut soon they really need to bring the price down by a 100 dollars.
"Hopefully they will do a real price cut soon they really need to bring the price down by a 100 dollars." I keep telling myself the price cut is coming, because after three freakin years to only do ONE measly price cut of 50 bucks is not acceptable. i'd be willing to bet that the price cut will be announced at lepzig convention in germany this August to start same day that gimped 80 gig ps3 at $399 comes out in september
buy a fraking 360. and as soon as the PS3 drops to around the same price, buy a freaking PS3.
And the 80GB PS3 for $399.99 is an even more outstanding value.
POG please stop it doesnt suit you. Your embarassing yourself.
<_< I might need to pick myself up one of these and do the ole switcharoo and return it cause I might have ummm...microwaved my 360 in hopes of RRODing it >_> so I could get it replaced w/ a more up to date console w/ HDMI, quieter fans/dvd drive, etc. So remember boys & girls, don't put your console in a microwave for 5 seconds!
we learn something every day
To switch 360's at Target!lol Been there done that....however microwaving my box was never contemplated. ~Peace
what does 4 seconds do?
Join me my son.
uhoh! teh grammerz polisce is heerz!
do you think yoda would use a lightsaber that was 17% defective? "dark" vader? was that on purpose? i must be missing something.
Current arcade owners should consider selling their consoles and buying this one instead. Why? because instead of spending $149.99 on a 120gb HDD, might as well drop the extra cash on a probably more reliable hardware and at least 60gb of space.
I intend to trade in my current 360 for this new sku at Gamestop. The replacement M$ gave me sounds worse than my original 360, so I hope these 60gb units run quieter and cooler. Hopefully, that will be the LAST 360 I will ever have to buy.
if this new modle will still suffer hardwear problems ? i would like to buy a 360 but rrod puts me of what about the elite is that ok guys ??? Thanks in advance . IMALVOL17 THANKS
oh come on. they are FINE. goodness people. I bought mine last Fall. I run it at the same time as my PS3 and they sit next to each other and its still fine. It's loud as hell, but its working. RROD died a long time ago, and is mainly restricted to the people who bought the first batches. (That will teach you to not buy early, lol)
Yes, this newer 360 model is capable of having the standard hardware issues that the 360 is known for. The Xbox 360 Elite's aren't even RROD free but many say that it is when it's not, and the this newer 60GB 360 is no exception.
The 60gb from what I'm hearing are the "Jasper" models which are more reliable then the current "Falcons"
@Imallvol7: sadly that is the classic response of people that don't know how and why the 360 RROD, and no its not console "batches" try more in the console internal hardware design of ALL the released SKUs @Voozi: we know the Jasper is suppose to be coming out this year but there has been no mention of it being included in the 60GB...hopefully someone will buy one of the "leaked ones" and opens it :)
The RROD still exists, even in newer models. It is not, however, as widespread as it was early on and probably (just speculating) closer to the acceptable rate for electronics. I just bought a firesale 360 and had it over a week when it got the RROD. I'm waiting for the coffin as I type, but luckily I was just replaying Mass Effect so I'm not missing much. And I'll be getting SC IV for PS3 this week, so I'm set on games and not completely out in the cold.
It works great and I game a good amount each day. I have even cracked it open and ummmm well you know what happens when a 360 gets opened up and connected to a PC ;) Anyway some people do not realize it, but the power supply can also overheat and make the system red ring. Some people that actually had no problems with their 360's sent them in not knowing a new power source was only needed. I have multiple 360's in my home and I had a launch system that supposedly died. I am a veteran at PC repair and I am MCSE certified so my instincts kicked in and I tried to fix the problem.....tried the other power supply from my Elite and viola back to life. I called MS and they sent me a new one free.
as if you're the person who could be counted on for an honest opinion??? --------------> open zone is that way fanboy. just get a 360. you get 3 year warranty anyway. nothing to lose and everything to gain if you are a gamer.
Lol, WTF is the first post? Is that a MS employee advertising? LOL. If you think about it, this version of the 360 is still overpriced. Yeah, I spent 350$ on my 20gig, but that is irrelevant. I want it so I buy. Doesn't change the fact that after you pay for online, its 400$, and that's for just one year of online. THAT'S HOW MUCH A F'ING PS3 COST! And I don't have to tell you again how much more stuff the PS3 includes (or do I have to again because NO ONE SEEMS TO UNDERSTAND. Wifi, card ports, BLU RAY, generic hard drive replacement, free online, etc. etc.) The 360, while has some great game, is a rip off an a half. Damn, when will people realize how much better a deal the PS3 is? Can you really be that blind? Xbot, Sonybot, or Casugamer (Ninty) should agree. On another note, yay for the extra space. Wish I didn't have to fork out 180$ f'ing dollars for a 180gig drive.
You comment that #1 sounds like an advertisment and then you go on to do the same thing and try and sell me a PS3. You know what I look for in a GAMING machine. Superior online service and the biggest and best selection of games. The 360 does those the best and that is the console I choose.
well said crab
Point to me where I was talking about games. I was pointing out the value of each console which I think is obvious. But do whatever you want and think whatever you want. I see you didn't dispute my argument. And you can't so you won't and try to change the subject (as seen above). And I hope you already know my stance on Live being "vastly superior" to PSN because of my previous posts. If you have a PS3 and 360 like I do, you would understand.
Well, actually two Xbox 360's, a Pro and an Elite. I also have a Wii. All three of the current gen consoles have their pros and cons. As for assigning value to a console, that depends on each person and how they use it. If you like more games on one system, chances are that system will have the best value for you. Obviously you feel it's the PS3. Some feel it's the Xbox 360 and others feel it's the Wii. None of them are right and none of them are wrong. As for comparing PSN and Live, PSN is getting better, but it still has a way to go to match what Live has to offer. PSN is improving, but it is a work in progress. If paying for an online service is out of the question, PSN is an alternative. -Death
Goodness people. I never said about what has more value to you or what games are better, I am simply saying the 360 is too expensive. Of course I like the games on 360. That's why i bought it. That still doesn't change the fact that I believe it's too expensive. Why is it so hard for you people to understand stuff? And bud, sitting in my livingroom now is 2 360's, 2 ps3's, a wii (modded), n64, 4 nes's (three unopened and this is thanks to my room mate), a genesis, an snes, ps2, ps1, xbox, gamecube, a psp, and a ds. I experience a alot of games and systems. I am not just talking out of my a$$. I know none of that automatically makes me credible, but if you try to imply that my views are simply out of bias is a little short sighted.
The Ps3 is over priced 600 dollars is way to much to mostly watch Blue ray as the only game that really looks interesting to me is Killzone 2 and i will not buy a system for 1 or 2 games when i can get most of whats coming out on my 360
the PS3 no longer costs $600. Ever heard of the $399 sku?
won't do me any good as one of the main reasons i would buy one is to replace my ps2 but since the 400 unit is not backwords compatable it is still down to where i would be paying 400 dollars to be able to play 1 or 2 games not going to happen the real ps3 costs 600 dollars the 400 unit doesn't offer the features i need i'll wait till some of the stand alone Blueray units drop down in price to watch Blueray
actually their both about even in price. you have to pay for LIVE wich brings the price of a 360 around the same price of a ps3. if you like gaming in HD or online, you still need to buy cables and headset for the ps3 wich evens out the price ratio. i have the 60 gig "over priced" ps3, and the debut "over heated" 360, and Sony has been the more expensive console so far, even after paying for YEARS of LIVE. i think the only way the ps3 becomes cheaper is when it starts selling for exacly the same price of the 360 with backwards compat. cause paying for LIVE in the long run would be more expensive then, maybe better but more expensive. i never game using wifi(YES, THERE IS A DIFRENCE), so i prefer they dropp wifi in favor of backwards compatability or a headset HDMI cable combo. few of my friends have ps3's and this would make them get one. imho.
It's a shame only 2 games for the PS3 interest you. If backwards compatability interest you then check this link to find out if the PS2 games you want to get can be played on an 80 or 60 gig ps3. http://www.us.playstation.c... No system will be perfect for everyone. Personally, i bought the 80gb PS3 with plans to play my old PS2 games. I played RE4 once and haven't played any others since. But again, that's just me.
I saw a few of these at Target yesterday and somebody was picking one of them up. They must of just got a console shipment in because there was 2 Wii's and at least 3 MGS4 PS3 bundles. Seems like a good deal and everything else comment #1 said in the gamer zone.
for just another $50 you can get an 80GB PS3 with Blu-ray... why bother with this?
And as you can see, people are smart.... http://www.amazon.com/gp/be... :P
Man, that MGS Bundle has been on that list for a week. Too bad we don't know exactly how many sales this translates too.
360 owners get a larger library of games. All games support a fully functional, fully featured online gaming service in Live. You get a superior controller. You get HD cables in the box. You get an ethernet cable and a headset w/mic. I could go on and on. But the the real gamers that don't watch movies on thier videogame consoles know what I am getting at...
Blu-ray is over-rated and entirely too expensive for it's miniscule improvement in picture quality. As far as gaming, 360 still b*tch slaps the ps3 and wii combined. http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g... Count 'em.
what we need now is for someone to TOFTT and see if this is the JASPER we kept hearing about.
Isn't the jasper much later this year? If anyone know, please share info. I am looking into getting a 360 and was surveying the firesale ones but if the new 60 gig is Jasper model might as well wait.
does the new 60 g have wifi? if so i might just buy an xbox to go next to my ps3....
it will not have wifi standard. The only real difference from the previous Pro sku's is that the HDD is larger and it probably has a smaller power supply (175w?). It should also have the Falcon chipset, but I hope it has the newer Jasper chipset, which should result in cooler operating temps and less fan noise. Sadly, you will still have to purchase a separate wifi adapter.
@dzpool ....youre an idiot, the ps3 was 600 around launch, thats about it. you sac get one for 399 and the no games argument is dead, seeing how the ps3 has BETTER exclusives and better multiplats minus the JRPGS for now. grow up and troll else where....
LOSERS! Who cares about metacritic and 360's old ass 2005 and 2006 games? Most didn't even look next gen. Why is 360 getting it's ass outsold on amazon.com and worldwide? "OMG, I'm a loser xbot who surfs metacritic to feel goood about my loud DVD drive 360 that's gonna red ring...." ZOMG < ZOMG > ZOMG Seriously guys. :)
To my knowledge PS3 has two models. One being the 500$ 80 gb model and the other the 400$ 40gb model.
