The VideoGamingreport reports on new Xbox 360 power brick plugs.
personally i think they need to get rid of the damn power brick, or at least make it smaller... but what do i know.
yeah, nevermind that even the WII has an external power brick.
Pick one, External power supply or large console size.
it doesn't overheat and shut down every five seconds like the 360. but to answer your question.....larger console. atleast the components in my ps3 can actually breathe
Wow. you are a genius.
what are you on about? every five seconds, i have left my Xbox 360 on for over 30hours straight, i havnt got one with the new heatsink, and i have had no problems with it. infact i am also on my first SKU no problems since i brought it. just because you read "news" it doesnt mean you know what your on about.
Hmmm Well they could of built a power source inside I guess. But its already having heat problems. ( None that I never had mine you, over heating that is )
So maybe MS is better of to keep the brick, for now anyways.
Lets see how the 360's with all the new parts fair?
Sony fanboys will come here.. and scream... "All the people that buy a 360 got screwed!"... hehe.
yeah but let them say what they want, i agree it sucks for those who feel screwed, i havnt had a problem yet and my console seems to work great but i want one with the smaller chips
i dont care bout the power brick, it sits behind the tv so who cares?
all that matters is the games, and if my 360 dies guess what...ill get a new one end of story
if the ps3 was half as powerfull as the 360 maybe it would generate some heat too JK
i don't know if they got screwed. but,why is ms putting out new sku's and changing the hardware around every few days. makes one wonder what the he11 they are doing. and some of the stuff they are changing(adding HDMI) contradicts what they said when they launched the 360.(they said HDMI was a waste and that it wasn't necessary)
i believe all consoles have stuff added, just think back to the PS2, didnt they release tons of PS2s without an ethernet port? then when XboxLIVE kicked off all of a sudden there was one added? they change bits of hardware to make the product more efficient and better.
All the people that buy a 360 got screwed!
So i'm guessing that you own a PS3 or a Wii right? Why dont you think about who really got screwed here, the wii has crappy graphics and the PS3 is a hunk of sh1t that forces people to buy next generation things even if they're not ready for it. Also PS3 has nothing on the 360; they have killzone 2, but everything else is kind of crap. Go away Fanboy
I'm thinking you guys missed the humor in post #4.
Go read post #3
And lighten up people :)
he is try to say that xbox 360 have so many problem and user just feel screwed!
you dont have to act like fanboy people xbox 360 have problems and you know it.
Uhm, nobody said anything like that.
Once again...Go figure out the difference between an obvious joke and a REAL fanboy post.
let me get this straight. MGS4, final fantasy, ratchet and clank, socom, and gran turismo are crap? uh, yea, you keep thinking that while you play kameo. and ms is adding to the 360. stuff(hdmi) that you say is worthless.
I just got another Xbox 360 today. It was manufactured almost a year ago and it has the new power brick and cable. The brick doesnt have the buttons on it and the power cable between the wall and the power brick no longer has a grounding prode. I guess they took the ground out so people can plug them into surge protectors without bricking this time.
i brought mine in October 2006, and have ALWAYS had it plugged into a surge protector and guess what.... no problems what so ever... so i guess i will have to disagree with you
whoooppy fukin dooooooooo
It's interesting. I just traded in my 360 Premium (got it back in november, been running perfectly this whole time) for an Elite. This elite is INCREDIBLY quiet compared to my original, and the power supply is different. The other power cables were grounded three prong cables and they "locked in" to the console.
I wonder if this has anything to do with people having problems when plugging them into surge protectors.
woops ... didn't see Cook1eMan above...
Basically what he said already :)
They can`t do anything about the powerbrick without compromising the console,Nintendos power brick is pretty huge too.
Microsoft is ripping off the sony PS3, They've done it before and now they are doing it again. Microsoft are theives.
What the hell
sony is ripping off wii and xbox 360
Alright, it really REALLY pisses me off when people say company A is copying off of company B....
All 3 consoles have entirely different hardware. Copying a small thing like a button in the middle of the controller, a plug in, a power brick etc. Thats like saying the Elite copied the HDMI port on the PS3... Those things are necessities. Without the middle button, how would we get to the console's menu settings etc?
Sony never stole anything, only company that does stealing is microsoft, not with the console business, no. Microsoft only steals with their software, like windows. Only somewhat innoative OS MS has ever made would be Windows XP. All the rest are ripoffs of some other OS. Vista is a ripoff of OS/X, a huge ripoff... but back to the original point..
Sony didn't steal the motion sensor from the wii. The technology is entirely different. The PS3 uses a SIXAXIS motion tilt sensor, not full motion like the wii. The reason Sony put a motion sensor in their controller was because of the rumble patent problem they had in the past. Who would want a controller with no extra features like rumble or motion? I honestly wouldn't care, but millions of other people do.
Sony didn't steal the analog stick back then. Nintendo didn't invent the analog stick either. If i remember correctly, didn't the Atari have an analog stick? The analog stick is a necessity nowadays anyway. If Sony stole the analog stick from Nintendo, then Microsoft stole the analog stick from Sony, and Nintendo.
Nobody in the console business stole anything. I really don't feel like explaining everything. I don't even remember, nor care what other things Sony "stole" from other companies. They didn't steal at all..
you should already know u got screwed those bricks make just as much noise as the console
the power brick has no moving parts.
Don't bother trying to explain... do you actually think he would understand what a "moving part" is? he is already contaminated. he drank the kool-aid Sony gave him. his IQ dropped dramatically.
HAHAHA! Man, what an idiot. I hate it when people make up false stories.
you are stupid arnt you.
Give fanboys a bad name. I'm sorry, but he is incredibly retarded for a sony fanboy. I do hope most sony fanboys like him arent like the rest. I'm a sony fanboy i guess you could say. All the electronics in my house are sony except for my computer, and my nintendo and sega consoles. And my atari and my oddyssee.... and my macbook isnt sony either... but thats not the point...
Before anybody even labels me as a fanboy, I often buy a console for the hardware, and one that doesnt have a 60% chance of breaking down on me. Also i only had the money for two consoles. So i bought a PS3 and a Wii.. i love zelda too much to skip out on the wii =)
But why, though, why does this idiot, TheELJuggernaught or w/e even act so stupid? You, sir, give us fanboys a bad name. Please, go tell your mom you're a retarded idiot who has to blow on other consoles just because he owns another. I may own a PS3, but i only blow on other consoles when the opposing fanboy has another ignorant post... like when someone says HAHAPS3HASNOGAEMZ!! i'll just reply with a list of the games out, and coming out.... still. dont act so ignorantly, please >.>
i LIKE HOW ms IS FIXING A LOT OF THERE problems with the RROD and the disc scratching and the big power brick,HDMI(1.2)lol...the 360 is getting better every day..once there done with all these issues im getting one
..... It's gonna be even BIGGER? about 3 times bigger, that will give even more power, right?
I'm sure going to sleep better at night knowing that it will be easier to unplug the power cable from new 360's. I actually like that the power cord locks into my console. Since the thing is so touchy about power interruptions I feel it better to be safe than sorry.
Any idea who i mean yet, well for those who haven't noticed yet Bladestar is acting like a jealous MS fanboy, PS3 is a far superior piece of Hardware, doesn't make any noise when you play a game unlike the 360 where you have to listen to atrain pass while you play, touch sensative buttons on the console, disc projects in and out no disc tray, no big brick power supply, we have a Blu-Ray player built in, which i don't care to much about but it is really good, wireless controllers i hear 360 cheapo version can't support wireless controllers what a joke and top top it of the 360 dies after a few hours of play time, lol hahaha what a joke, a bad joke for you 360 [email protected]
I just want to make it clear from the start that I am not a fanboy of any system. I am hear to vent my frustrations at Mr. Bill feakin Gates for putting out such a piece of crap. I bought my xbox just six months ago and yesterday it fried. I own both a ps3 and a 360, but I would have been willing to buy the 360 for a $100.00 more if the thing would at least last a year. Now I have to send the damn thing and hope they can fix it, and then have to worry when the new one I get will crap out. Im sorry Bill, but your rush to beat Sony to the gates, excuse the pun, meant putting out a big overheating piece of crap for everyone to buy. Warning, I called Microsoft yesterday and asked if they would be putting the new and improved heat sheilds. He didn't even know what I was talking about. Microsoft needs someone to fix these overheating problems soon, or they will be losing alot of gamers. My one main gripe is that I have to pay extra money at best buy just because Microsoft and Gates can't produce a product that lasts. This extra cost drives the 360 price right up there with Sonys machine. Come on gates get with it.................
