Engadget have received their new Xbox 360 elite console and have indulged in everyone's favourite practice, taking and posting pictures of the unboxing.
Looking sexy too me...
thats just how your mother likes it trebeck!(sean connery voice).
But really I'm happy with my 360.
I dont need the 120gb, i have a 133 left on my computers hard drive, and my vga cable is fine for my gateway 24 inch gateway monitor.
Now i just need a PS3 and Wii.
Agreed! its just a cool looking console but in black it just does something to make it look better than any console to date in my opinion.
if a transfer cable is included? What if you buy the Elite, with the intention of selling your Pro, and want to transfer your HD info? I know the cable is included with the 120 GB HD; will the include it with the Elite? Or better yet, sell it separately?
find a friend that bought the 120 HDD???
goto xbox.com to get a free transfer kit
but it looks sweet. Look!! it even comes with HD cables..lol
Now all it needs is some of Sony's paint/wax job..HA
I'm gonna go check Costcos..
Far be it for me as a Microsoft fanboy to question giving money to the Overlords, but: WHY THE HECK DO YOU NEED A FULL ELITE CONSOLE IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A PRO!?
And yes, for the insane people out there doing this, I do think there's a free cable progam online.
(Just buy the 120 and spraypaint the console or something...)
see, since I was posed to get a Wii, I ended up trading my 360 for a Wii and 9 games. Now I can buy an Elite. Zelda has been keeping me busy, so it works for me. Your right, not a lot of people are going to buy it but for those that are, well I'll let them tell you....
until the 65nm console emerges.
to be honest i dont like the look of the xbox in black. I dont like the dull finish and personally prefer the white model. I have a PS3 and love its shiny-ness! i think the Ps3 suits the black better and it has a better finish.
Dare i say the elite looks like a 90s VHS player?? Keep it in white imo. Or shiny black.
Then return the 120 gig hard drive after your done transfering the data....
Why the hell is it so gray? Microsoft, here's some advice: Contact Sony for the gloss finish. The console looks like krap with that grayish black thang. Back in all black like PS3 is where its at with the gloss finish. Microsoft is so gay to screw us now. The only thing I respect about this console is it includes an hdmi cable. But WHAT THE F(***) HAPPENED TO:
"HDMI is simply not needed in this generation of gaming."
"1080p through VGA looks exceptional, HDMI is not needed."
"720p is the sweet spot in gaming."
"Speaking to consumers, 20gb is more than enough space for game saves and Xbox Live Marketplace content."
"Users need to delete the content on their Hard drive once they've used it."
the same about Sony...but I see people continue to use the same Bait.
The console only went from off-white to black, so whatever tards said the first time around they will only repeat.
Ya know, the black 360 has a BLACK NEROPRENE/RUBBER type look to it, just like my T-mobile Dash Phone. Little to No finger prints will be seen.
i believe you can download all your game info from xbl if you have it. Or if you have space on your computer you can transfer it to that then transfer that to the 120 gig hard drive.
didnt think you could transfer things from your XBox 360 hard drive to your PC... infact i am almost certain you cant...
like the look of it... but dont know if i am going to get it...
it appears so lol
PS3 shiny sexy blackness - true 1080P - 1.3HDMI from day1
xbox360elite - plastic cheap black - 1080p - 1.2HDMI from 1year 1/2 later
lol i just find it funny how MS is trying to follow sony now. and they still cant get it rite haha 1.2 HDMI - HDTrue sound dont think so..and also funny that they stated that they dont care much about xbox360 being a movie player then come out with HDDVD
so many signs of MS is in trouble with their system - so im expecting a new console every year and it still wont be better then the PS3 lol
whats next xbox360 super elite WHOA!! extra features include built in WiFi & 65mm chip so the xbox doesnt sound like an airplane ready to take off - only $700
there is a special cable or adapter that costs like 30 dollars that enables you to transfer stuff to your pc hard drive.
Given that that is true, chances are youd be able to put that info then on your 120gig hard drive.
And IBLEEDBLU the HDMI 1.3 thing is really irrelevant. Tell me how many people are going to be able to use 1.3 when 1.2 is good enough. Hell most surround sound amplifiers don't even support HDTrue sound aside from newer ones.
So unless you have a buttload of money to spend, really hdmi 1.3 is irrelevant.
Now as for me, im fine with my 360.
Im having a bunch of fun with my 360.
I guess the question is are you having a lot of fun with your PS3?
If so thats great. Thats what games are all about.
How when the PS3 was finally unveiled how XBox fans were saying how black is so oldschool... Now Micro$oft puts out a black 360 (with silver accents... Hmmmmm...), and they're chomping at the bit to get it?
it's cool that the 360 comes with two Hd options for video cables.
Always a holy moment: unpacking a new console.
