    Does the elite fix the red ring of death?

    Microsoft have apoligized many times for making such an unpredictable console. I was just wondering if the red ring of death was fixed in the new XBox 360 Elite?

    I have a 360 at the moment but I could get an elite for just 40 if I trade it in. I was wondering if the improvements are worth it.

    No it's not fixed.
    It's the exact same internal specs as any other 360.
    The only difference is that it's black and has a 120GB harddrive. If you have an older 360, the Elite also has HDMI.

    Oh ok. You would have thought that Micro$oft would have siezed this oppurtunity to make a console that doesn't have a 50% failure rate within a year, but once again Mr Gates has squatted down and took a crap on the little guys.

    It will.
    Forza 2 and Marvel Ultimate Alliance.
    That will come out within the next few weeks. Same with the pro/premium package.
    The core packack gets completely revamped with a 256MB memory stick, 5 Xbox live arcade titles, composite AV cables, and a wireless controller and the same two games also.
    Yep yep.

    You should probably call them then. it should only take 4-6 weeks or something. I heard somewhere it went down a little, but i'm not sure.

    So, Go look at my thread over here for the answer. 360 at Target

    In short, No, it does not.
    They still use the same .98 nm chips rather than newer .65 nm chips, meaning they run just as hot and just as loud.
    They still use the cheaper solder that becomes brittle over time from heat changes, and develops micro-fractures causing increased resistance.
    And they still, apparently, have the same bad design on the disc drive, causing circular disc scratching.

    And yes Virginia, the do get the three light Red Ring of Death.

    But then again, they also play awesome games, and have a 120 gb hard drive, so, you know, whatever...
    Pokemon Diamond: Name:Sif FC:3952 3555 4891

    Now Trading 1st, 3rd, & 4th gen starters, Phione, Rotom, Porygon, Dratini, Kecleon, Feebas, Castform, Tyrogue, and anything else I can breed.
