GamerZines: Graeme Boyd, Xbox Community Manager for Europe, has revealed the European details regarding the newly announced Xbox 360 model.
But not enough to buy a new one... Looks good.
Wonder if it has different insides that will stop RROD lol, they need to change the inside of the 360 alot more than the casing. Looks great though. Also, really MS? Calling it the "Xbox 360 Slim"?! It's basically the same size!
Well I would hope that they thought of that... if it uses the same insides, we're going to see a stock recall. Seriously.
Well, they made it smaller and with less breathing room. It's like the ugly offspring between a black Wii and an Alienware PC :P Jk, jk. But I still wouldn't buy it if I already had one.
as u can see there are holes so it can breathe
Well, good thing they thought of those this time around then, huh!
Who is their target market here? Everyone who wanted an Xbox already has one. & is not risking RROD headaches again on a new hardware. They just blatantly copied Sony without thinking it through. Typical.
"They just blatantly copied Sony without thinking it through" I can't get enough of these comments. Not too bright are you? I want one and i have one. AM i the only one? LMAO! so sad...
Sony did not invent the idea of a slimmer console your moron! Yes they one of several companies that did it over the years. Thats it. Also unless you have spoken to everyone on earth or all MS console sale have reached 0 sold per month I dont think you are qualified to decide if everyone who wants a 360 has one. I swear this website is full of sony fanboys. I love my PS3 as much as anybody else but I also enjoy my 360.
Didn't Sony copy Nintendo and Sega with their slim?
Well I guess I won't be getting one then the hype for me will have probably gone by then. As usual MS show who is more important and that is the US they get it now and UK and Europe gotta wait over a month. A joke really.. Not only that there biggest announcement other than the redesign was ESPN which we won't have in Europe.... Useless utterly useless..
you can get espn in the uk, but it isnt the same, it took over from setanta when it went tits up
Why does it remind me of something Alienware would come up with? Either way, I like it! The consoles insides have been redesigned to be cooler and whisper quiet (as he said) and it will have built in wireless N tech. I wonder if the haters will still complain... It doesn't have built in wifi! I'm going to try to wait, but I will probably be getting one of these shortly!
Well, that's pretty late compared to North America.
Didn't matter.. we here in Europe don't like the xbox. PS3 is mostly what we buy.
its coming in 2 days..... as if its a long wait
Read before making snide remarks.
Whats new! -Slimmer model. -Build in Wifi -Bigger HD WOOOOW build in wifi.... (goes back playing on the PS3)
I want one though, just cause I like the Alien look of it =P ... I guess ill be trading in my oldie for this one. I hardly play my sexbox but da*n I want that lol. ppl were moaning bout 360 older hardware... now Microsoft improves the hardware, design and hey, you dont have to buy wifi seperately anymore... ill give their conference 8/10. it was alright ... now Sony and ninty to go..
You...you...you only buy it for looks?................. also the hardware remains the same, just with a bigger HD and build in WIFI (which the ps3 already has for 5 years). its not like they've added a 1 gigabye videocard or something.
You look like a retard in that pic and your posts kinda make me think my first impression was correct. lol Hardware remains the same? You sure about that?? lmao! I've been waiting for this for quite some time. I love E3! It pushes the PS fanboys to another level, A more retarded level. LOL. It's true and you know it. Even the mods know it. Bonne journee tout le monde ;)
hits US this week dosen't it? :} *EDIT* man dude you guys are fanboys this model is $299 has built in wi-fi and a 250 gig harddrive i think im hanging up my sony fanboy hat 360 is starting to look good like it did in 2006-2007 fable3 gears3 halo reach natal looks good this re-model is sexy i dont care what anybody says and this war is getting intresting? its a great fight ps3 with the games 360 with the community man what a great gen of gaming
Of course people hate to here that both sides have positives and negatives. How dare you.
Just put my Xbox 360 Elite 120GB on eBay! Gonna' put the money towards getting this one. :)
I'm fine with my 120gb Elite but it sure looks tasty.
I'll buy one a year after it's release to see how it'll hold up against RROD and other errors.
I might buy one in august. I will need to know what the cooling is like in it. They removed the exhaust fans on the rear of it but I think they replaced the with a 120MM fan on the side which would make it much quieter.
it looks like the just changed the outer plastics and that's it. maybe they did some other things but this is definitely not a "SLIM". people gotta get their heads out their ass. I guess when rosie O'Donnell changes her cloths then shes "slim" also? LOL
If you actualy watched the unveiling you would see they had the original Xbox 360 case over that new one and the new one is a small bit smaller. Not by much though.
yeah, the psone and pstwo were actually slim for it's time. since then it's just been hickups-
Why complain gives people time to learn about hardware problems I wont buy unless theres proof no RROD. maniacf40 I take you did not see GT hands on the new console it is smaller it also has bulit in hard drive instead of using normal 360 HDD's it also looks smaller and its thinner and looks lot more nicer with glossy look like the fat ps3's.
The Wireless is wireless N, which is the best available at the moment. PS3 uses the old format, which is terrible and causes lag issues. Considering a Elite with 120 GIG HDD and no wireless was $299, this new, sexy looking model will sell extremely well. I cant wait. I already have mine pre-ordered. There is no RROD in newer 360's at all, it wasn't faulty hardware people, it was faulty soldering on the joint. No way will they put out a slimmer version unless it's been tested. The RROD stuff was so exaggerated, only the first year models were at a higher risk for RROD. This new model looks awesome.
you've got a point. The amount of times I got kicked off while playing online on ps3, twas cause I had it wirelessly set up, but now I got it wired.. no matter wireless will never be as good as a wired connection.. but its cool the new Xbox got improved wifi...
The PS3 wifi is not terrible nor cause lag. That statement, along with Microsofts TERRIBLE press conferance is, well, crap. Sony will mop up tomorrow.
The PS3 wireless is terrible. I have 60MB/s internet wirelessN router also and I couldnt connect to PSN for three months because of the wireless. I had to change the DNS in the end to connect and even at that my connection wasnt stable. I now have my PS3 wired and the connection is perfect.
lol theres reason's you only have 1 bubble Stop being a fanboy My mate got xbox 360 for xmas what happen in january it got RROD death Everyone i know still RROD death its never been exaggerated. And wireless N yes its faster but Since got ps3 I played wireless never have issues. You can also not confirm this unit will not have RROD no one can to its out and gets tested by the public Microsoft have sold 360 for 5 years and not fixed RROD so yes there is chance it could still get it just very little chance.
PS3 uses G which is not really the "old" format and is perfectly fine for 95% of homes... It also doesn't cause lag... I am not sticking up for PS3 here but the technology.
yup. B would have been worse...
I like the new model but I was surprised it will be the same price though. They might be a cut closer to the Kinect release. Did they give a Kinect price? edit: Another question: What about transfering from the old HDD to a new HDD?
I think there will be a boost in 360 sales following this - but 80% of that will be from current owners upgrading - for sure
its looks like they simply squashed it together in the middle of the front and back, and changed the casing to a dust magnet.
we in the EU get sh*t late.. but it's cool.. it's not too far away
Bleeding favouritism.. didn't even mention a Kinetic (not that I care) date either.. ah well screw them, it'll fail anyway.
That's super cool and all, but PS3 slim looks better. And this is coming from a PC fanboy.
yes I'm only getting it for the looks. I did the same thing when ps2 went slim, ps3 also... and now the 360. call me Weird =D.
OMG what a flipping joke, I throught only Sony kicked Europe in the pants, a month latter than US (Not that I'm buying it, but still come on!).
It looks real nice. I'll wait a few months or so, just to see if any problems arise. If none, then if deff get one :)
Well, I deffinitely update my X0. It looks way better than old Elite.
Loving this news, Its like microsoft finally admitting that Sony were right to include features at launch such as built in Wifi etc. Have they added any HDMI 1.3 support in the new model? Just a thought but isn't this min requirement for proper 3D gaming using new 3D TV tech??? Oh and 360 slim lol, 360 reshell more like seeing. No real wow factor to MS conference this year. Eye Toy Kinetic thing is a waste of time for the majority of N4G readers seeing as the vast majority of the target audience MS is aiming for prob don't read internet news websites (Hence the term CASUAL gamer) Same prop be said about the Move though (see some degree of balance) but at least Sony is trying to see if they can get it work for all game types such as SOCOM not just the wiiware type stuff.
...don't want it!!! ;-D
