Holding out on an Xbox 360 purchase in hope of a Jasper-revised console? Find one manufactured after October 23rd and you may be in luck.
Do let us know if anybody in the UK spots a console manufactured on or after October 23rd.
Lucky ?? why didnt they just pull back the old model.
Because the heat issues were fixed by a manufacturing change last summer. You guys need to get with the times. your FUD is old and stale.
He's been waiting for this to get one.
The source is a forum post on pending, so go approve it and squash the idiots whining how its inappropriate for this place.
Nice to see this confirmed. I have a friend who is about to buy a 360 and he wants to get the Jasper chipset if possible. The Jasper is pure 65nm if I'm not mistaken and will be cooler and quieter than previous iterations. You're right, though, cherrypie, none of the people I know who have purchased a 360 since last summer has had a problem with their 360s.
It's true, any 360 manufactured at or after Feb of 08 will be RROD free. I work at Best Buy and since then the units have been of outstanding quality as far as RROD. Anyone waiting around for Jasper, should be aware that it is NOT necessary.
I wonder how many people will consider trading in an old console for a new Jasper? I know I'd consider it.
