ill keep my launch console(gotta spend my money on booze and the bitches)
Lol this should have been the Xbox 360 standard. Why are they charging $300 when it is exactly the same as before? Even Nintendo had Wi-Fi 6 years ago.
I mean if someone gives me one for christmas I would take it, but slim or no slim, I dont think its worth my hard earned money for the time being. I remember when Ps3 slim came out and I was like "holy sh*t" but now that microsoft is trying the same thing, my gut reaction is just like "nah....." Maybe that will change in future. No one knows.
you had me at hello MS
even my 10 yr old nokia phone has wifi
Why are you haters even commenting here? "xbox has no wifi and small HDD LULZ, who wud buy dat?!? Lol!1one!" MS releases xbox with wifi and 250gb hdd "wifi is SO 6 years ago hahah why is xbox the same price as xbox?! WTF" Do you clowns even read your comments before you post? PS Anyone who games on wifi is in for lag. No matter what. There is ALWAYS inherent lag over wifi connections vs wired connections. If you're using it to browse the net, it's perfect. No wires. If you're gaming... haha well, enjoy that.
Every console since the days of the 2600 has gone through a makeover and suddenly people think that because MS is making a slim 360 that they are pulling a "me too" on sony? If you had no interest in the 360 before and still dont then so be it. No sense in poking jabs at improvements when we have had a machine get stuff removed recently. I should clarify something. The sense of double standards are what drives my previous statement. While we all know the 360 was no where near perfect, it has improved over time. Revisions to the hardware to make it quieter and less power hungry and yet still the same criticism about it lacking this or that or its reliability always come up. Here is the chance for redemption in the eyes of the gamers. Making a single sku with hard drive standard, built in wifi (wireless N no less), revised physical form and improved cooling/power requirements, number of usb ports have been upped from 3 to 5. What has been removed are far less than what has been added. The loss of the memory card slots will be a blow to those who have those cards (I myself have a 256 i use on my pro with my profile saved). That's really it if you think about it. Oh maybe RROD if it turns out the hardware is far more superior to the original (which it should be). Now if we look at the ps3, there is a system where right from the beginning was speced and priced beyond normalcy. Sony had to right away start axing features they felt werent cost effective. Backward comp w/PS2 games, media card slots, USB ports, and those are just hardware changes to cut cost. The debacle that is Other OS is debatable but i have to give credit to sony for adding more to their internal feature set as well as their psn network. When viewed from a neutral perspective, ps3 has lost the most in terms of hardware features and 360 the very least. Looking at hardware additions you dont have any for the ps3 but you do have several for the 360. So I just find it so odd that criticism could still be harsh for a system that is striving to improve on itself when viewed next to a system that has had things taken away. Who is really getting the free pass here? Hatred towards a company is one thing. Hatred towards a console that only serves to entertain is another. I may hate sony for their pricing and business tactics (MS is no better in that dept) but that doesnt mean i have the same feeling towards their respected consoles.
Ghost of Sparta Because people will buy it? If there's demand, why not charge more?
No HDMI slot????
How can they sell it for the same price as a superior PS3? Should be $199.
Looks slick, I like the design and size.
as if sony and ms have changed places...again. Last gen, xbox had hdd std and ps2 was option. this gen 360 it was option and ps3 std. ps3 was glossy black and 360 elite was matte finish. ps3 slim is matte and 360 slim is glossy. I wonder where they will cross paths at next?
No one cares...move along...
Aaron Greenturd sat on it.
...I can now buy a Microsoft 360 "Slim" ;-)
But not now,I'll wait a month,to see if this one has hardware failure too like the original Xbox360 did.
now thinking should I keep my perfectly fine jasper 360 or get the new 360?It would go great with my black sony bravia tho hmmmm.....
any words on a canadian release date and/or any trade-in offers for the old 360?
This is like the 32nd article about the same thing. woohoo.
touch sensitive buttons? where have i used that before...... should have ditched the archaic disc tray while they're at it.
I used it on my samsung TV
I used it on my PS3 in 2006.
It sounds like a 60gb PS3(except N and HDD size).Touch buttons,quieter,wi fi,shiny black,intergrated toslink instead of the unusable one on my launch 360. I'm surprised at how much I like the look of it.Xboxs have always been ugly.
It'll be a sad day for 299 xbox's if sony comes out with the rumoured 199 ps3 price cut, which they said was a typo. Question is how do you typo a jpeg?
as a web developer... typos are all too common ;-)
It was a screen shot of a web page.
The thing that had the price is an image on the page. Not coded in html or java, so somebody made a picture in photoshop that said 199. What was probably a typo was putting the name of the pic in verse the name of the one that said 299.
Ah ok well my mistake then. I would think that would be the problem as well.
Naa I'm sorry I'm a dumbass, I just went to the page again and it was text.
Also the ps3 was already 299 why were they even playing around with the image used to display the price. They have stock 299 images.
Sorry but the fact that it can't use my HDD was a deal breaker so imma just buy an arcade. Still looks cool
