    HDMI are only for those that need 1080p output and don't have VGA. Really, its not really worth anything as there really isn't anything cool they are adding. They could have built in the HD DVD drive, wifi, with upgradeable HD. The 120gb HD will cost $179. Insane.

    I've just ordered a 360 and considered cancelling but I'm not waiting an extra month or so for this... especially as I got a good deal on my 360 - £285 delivered from hmv for premium console, gears of war, pro evo 6 and crackdown... can't wait :)

    Hello I have a little something to say about this. I've notice as you all have known that this system have been leaked some time ago and microsoft denied it as if they didn't know this was in development. I have a 360 and I'm outraged and I'll tell you guys why, Xbox 360 has been out for over a year and in that year we've been getting (dare I say) games that are little underplayed by the system performance. Look at the big picture a year and half before they decide to drop this on us and for $479, This system could have been in all our home at the get go but only when they saw what ps3 and wii are adding to their systems someone got scared and said 120dd to save the system. I should not have to pay an extra $150+ for a bigger hard drive hell nobody should, I remember back then when ps3 came out with the 60gb dd we said why all memory for? Nintendo what 512mb let's be honest some of us laughed, my point is they knew what their system will require in the future, and who know they might upgrade into bigger drives... well Nintendo will. But hey give your praise to the "elite" system I for one am not! I don't like how they stabbed those who jumped on the bandwangon, supported them in the console war only to be denied something that we all should have had in the beginning! Bad move Microsoft and trust this will reflect in the coming days in the console wars.

    So when these new models come out, will the current 360's not be produced anymore? Will we not be able to buy them anymore except on Ebay or whatever?

    Excuse me if this is explained in the article, I didn't read it...

    mircrosoft did release ther console about 1-2 years before the current gen consoles even came out! stop complaining, they are just upgrading it. Your xbox is still going to be able to do everything the elite can, except use HDMI.

    I don't what this guy is b*tching about. The 360 has been out for quite a while now. All they're doing is releasing a newer model. I don't think anything is wrong with it. I'm really excited to see how powerful it is and the sleek design in person. Does ANYONE know if it will have even BETTER GRAPHICS?


    And how much does X Box Live GOLD Membership cost per year? And once you pay it is all the stuff on their free or do you have to pay more for certain things like music or w/e?

    So Microsoft asked for a Mulligan? Its $20 cheaper than the ps3, but still uses the dvd drive. If it were able to use the hd dvd drive for games I would say great. Microsoft screwed up and are trying to get more buzz going with this system. I think it will fail. What little respect I had for the 360 was diminished with this system.

    The Elite will have the identical same hardware except for the harddrive and hdmi input. The Elite will NOT have the new cpu that runs cooler. This will come in yet another future 360.

    Complain huh? Okay let take a look at this a lot of people won't buy ps3 because of the price tag right okay, so when ps3 annouce that their system will have a blue ray disc drive included Microsoft comes out with a hd-disc drive for it's it system let's not mention it will cost you 200 dollars! Now they want you to pay an extra 150+ for more memory, the wireless add on is also $100, oh! and I didn't included the fact the you have to PAY! to use their Xbox live adding and extra $100 a year to that. The ps3 is what $600 dollars and thier online (though crappy) will be free, this new "elite" is a rip off of a ps3 and this is becoming well aware of those who stood out in line for Xbox360, again supported them by buying those crappy game, and who expect mass effect and halo 3 to be out soon and better be well worth the wait! becasue I tell you if you got the money to go and get this new "elite" system go ahead give your money to those who don't have respect for you, who keep you waiting on the line just long enough before someone comes along and blow them out of the war.

    I'm sure Microsoft doesn't give a damn about how much respect you have for the 360. As for price its $20 cheaper and it has 6 times the Hard Drive space of the bottom of the 2 PS3 versions. Its $120 cheaper than the 60G PS3 so I could care less about DVD Drive. They don't want to choose the wrong format and I can't blame them.

    Avatar you are complaining about something so stupid. Things cost money. IF you don't have it and you want it you have to pay. Its as simple as that. 2nd Live is the best online service on the market. I could care less how much it costs since its so great. As for Wireless you could always buy an Ethernet cable. I might just do that to save the 100. And oh yeah Mass Effect will be awesome. I don't think they will bring out any more versions of XBox for a long time so I don't have any problems buying this system and from the looks of things on other websites a lot of other people agree with me.

    No wifi? The HDD is Sold Separately for $180.00?? No internal HD-DVD drive??? Way to support your format MS. Oh wait...it has HDMI though

    Woop Dee Doo. People complain about the price of PS3 and say that they are going to run out and buy this? I don't get it. The PS3 and new Xbox are closer in price, and the PS3 has a bit more stuff...

    If you are starting new...never had an Xbox 360, I would probably go with the new "Elite" It has stuff that the 360 doesn't have, but it still doesn't have everything it should. 360's have a bit of a reputation of "dying" and people having to replace them frequently, and I think it's safe to assume that they have fixed that problem. It's got the HDMI, and an option for the larger HDD. Still, there isn't wifi, or the internal HD-DVD player. A lot of people are complaining about that right now. The Elite 360 is an update to the premium 360...if you wanted to buy the premium or core, this one is "better". Why else would they charge more?

    For those of you who think this system will fail you should take these following points into consideration. The new Black Elite will include an xbox live vision camera, a black microphone, one to two rechargable kits, one black wireless controller, 120 gb memory, HDMI..etc

    The original consoles like the Core or the Premium only came with a 20 gb memory, wired controller, and two games I believe.


    Oh and for thsoe of you who arleady own an xbox 360 console you will be able to trade it in to get money off the elite.
