New (kinda same) XBOX 360

This is probably what it should have been the first time around. Seems pretty tight if you never got one before.

Quote:
It's smaller, has more ports, runs quieter and costs the same: $300. It has a 250GB hard drive and built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi. They're shipping the new Xbox 360 to retailers today.
Quote:
• Touch sensitive on/off and eject buttons (like the PS3)
• "Much quieter"
• 250GB internal hard drive, which is still swappable.
• A custom Kinect port (not the standard USB port)
• There are five USB ports now, with three in the back and two in the front
• AV cable included, an HDMI and optical audio
• Different power supply
• External Xbox 360 hard drives and memory units are NOT compatible with the new Xbox
• Other accessories are
• Internal components that are changed: two small fans changed into one large fan for quieter operation, 45nm integrated CPU and GPU

Looks sleek. I love my 360. I don't really play online but the lack of an included wi-fi receptor always seemed super gay to me, so glad they fixed that.

Well...traded my 360 for a ps3 when I lived with someone that also had a 360...then later sold my ps3 to my boss. So this is good news to me!

I'm glad they finally decided to step up and provide wi-fi, I thought that shit was gay as fuck when I had mine.

I've got a PS3 now and wouldn't trade it for a sexbox, but that definitely is a more attractive system than the big white brick is/was.

The reduction in die size to 45nm pretty much would solve most of the RROD problems that were GPU/CPU related. Reduction in thermal output is the biggest factor. This has been true for every Xbox 360 revision since the Xenon. Microsoft continually reduced the power draw, lowering the processors rated thermal design power and thereby its thermal output, which ultimately led to far less warping of the board and joint fractures. This is why Jasper 360's have a failure rate around 5% rather than 65% for Xenon boxes. The (H)ANA chip problems may still persist, but I would think Microsoft would use a better fabrication process now so that the initial solder joint issues wouldn't be a problem.

Looks cool, I thought they would have gave it some snazzy name to match but apparently it's just called 'Xbox 360 250GB'. Glad they got rid of the memory card slots they were useless.

Visually, it's the equivalent of a Hyundai Genesis while the PS3 is an S65.

It kicks my old 360 in the face. But it still looks like a Korean knockoff.

they are really loud though. I'm glad they worked on that.

I heard that it will be a very long time before they come out with entirely new systems, they will just offer accessories and upgrades for more advanced games.

The future isn't in optical information storage though, I know that for a fact, especially since we are entering the realm of 3d gaming. - too much limitation in the wavelength of light, and it isn't fast enough. - The problem, is that the technology capable of moving forward isn't perfect yet . . . or real, but we're close.
