    Confirmed: New Xbox 360 model

    From Kotaku. Leaked Italian language marketing information supposedly reveals details on a new model Xbox 360, this one with a physical redesign, rather than just new internals. Apparently it comes with a 250GB hard drive and internal wi-fi.

    Video at the link. Also, Natal is being renamed Kinect.

    Natal always struck me as an odd name, not sure I like this one better though.

    I'll get one when Borderlands' sequel comes out. :lol:

    Actually maybe sooner. I got the PS3 slim because it's easier to take when I go out of town for work. If the new 360 is a decent amount lighter I'd have to consider it too.

    I ordered it off Amazon yesterday after a couple hours of deliberation. The $50 in video game credit that I had expiring at the end of the month is what sealed the deal for me.

    Btw I love some people's arguments for hating the redesign (no blu-ray). :lol:

    I need a modded 360. I'm guessing this one will be impossible to do so right?

    I wouldn't say impossible. It depends on what changes Microsoft has made.

    Sony's stuff is near-impossible to hack these days, just to contrast.

    I doubt they're redoing their optical drives... Unless they found a new even cheaper one (I guess sound weighs in as well). Either way, if it isn't moddable on day one, I give it 2 months tops.
    Like the PSP? LOL I keed. The Ps3 has done a pretty solid job thus far. But we're getting there....

    I love the black look. The RROD will surely stand out nicely now. :pointlol:

    Like the PSP Go, yes. And PSP firmware 6.x still hasn't been hacked to my knowledge. I'm still running 5.50 GEN-D3.

    The only reason the PSP-GO hasnt been breached is because none of the 6 people that bought it know what they're doing. LOL

    All ragging on the PSP aside, it's become the console i hate more than anything in the world. If Sony offered it at a reasonable price I might get back into it.

    I'd submit that the PSP Go hasn't been hacked for the same reason firmware 6.x hasn't been hacked: it's tough.

    And the PS3 is still not hacked four years into its life. The root access stuff from a few months ago went nowhere.

    Just buy it used. I bought a PSP-2000 with CFW pre-loaded for $80 a few months ago. I needed to replace the scratched-up front panel, and I'm toying with getting a new screen, but it's a solid unit. My biggest problem is that the emulators haven't advanced as far as I had hoped.

    Bump.

    Microsoft says the new model 360 won't RROD. They say that not because of improved build quality or improved quality assurance testing. No, the new 360 won't RROD because it has no red lights. So instead, when the new 360 breaks, we'll get... a green ring of death, I suppose.

    I feel a really strong compulsion to compare Microsoft to BP right now.

    I just got the last one at my local GameStop. Traded in our old Pro, but kept the 60 GB HD and substituted a 20 GB HD instead.

    It's about 20% smaller than the old hardware. Shiny and black, very quiet system. Love seeing just over 200 GB of HD space left after transfering over everything from the old HD. :lol:

    Internal wireless, a cool "ping" noise when the tray opens and closes. It's a nice system, but if you are in no hurry, I'd bet it will be down to $249 for this Holiday season.

    The wife and I decided to get it mostly for the extra HD space. It was less expensive than buying a seperate 250 GB HD and we've got new hardware to boot.

    According to tests from Anandtech, the new 360 cuts down pretty nicely on power consumption and noise generation.

    A $199 version of the new 360 will replace the defunct $149 Xbox 360 Arcade. There's also a Kinect bundle coming, probably at the $399 pricepoint.

    Well it's already having it's desired effect. My roommate is considering picking up the new one and replacing his old model with it. I just can't justify the cost after buying an arcade last year and slapping the hard drive from my RROD one on it. Luckily I at least got 3+ years out of it. Unluckily it died like a week after the 3 year warranty offer on RROD passed for mine ;p

    I'm already seeing reports of the new 360s breaking down. Remains to be seen whether this is some sort of bug related to data migration from old 360s to new 360s or if the manufacturing gremlins are still haunting Microsoft.

    Quick question: What does Gamestop check when trading in an xbox? Do they check to see if has been opened? or do they just see if it works? Im going to trade mine in today and I want to know what they're going to look at.

    not sure what they look for.. i think they just make sure it works. If they notice it has been opened, plead ignorance and say that you bought it used.

    I've heard gamestops in malls are more lenient than stand alones in what they look for because typically they lack TVs to test them on.
