Wow....just wow.

This is a photo of the new edition of Game Informer Magazine: http://pictures.xbox-scene.com/xbox360/black360/blackxbox1.jpg
The new "Limited Edition" 360 Elite:

* The Elite will be limited quantities only; that may be as much or as little as a couple hundred thousand.
* The case, controller, and Live headset will all be black. It will have all new packaging.
* Elite will cost $479, and will be a 3rd SKU; it will be sold alongside Premium and Core packs.
* Eventually Elite hardware (in white plastics) will take the role of the Xbox Premium. That is to say, after the Elite is launched and sold out, future Xbox Premiums will have 120GB / HDMI.
* Elite models run cooler than normal 360s, but they are not yet confirmed to have 65nm chips.

Microsoft has yet to comment so maybe its all fake? :weird:

Its tough to tell, alot of the dev kits have been black.

HDMI might annoy me if I am wrong about that, and who knows, maybe I am, but I am not sure I care about it, I have had HDMI connections for almost 2 years and not felt the pain of not using them, as well as the HDMI capable receivers are stupid expensive, and I'd end up having multiple devices that would need switching.

The HDD I still hold out will be purchaseable seperately. Why make it modular if its not going to be modular?

Dunno, maybe I'll be wrong about that too.

I dont know what happened to this thread earlier but yea,.... Thanks for fixing it :)


But yea, funny as hell, a Microsoft XNA Framework Developer unintentionally confirmed that a new 360 might exist. Unless, he is talking about a dev kit(?).

B told me it was going to be like this.

It's pretty solid stuff. We already know. There's nothing to find out.

Ah.

And that one looks like just the HDD, so maybe I am not entirely wrong :)
