    Interesting. I would have preferred price cuts on the first two SKUs.

    Anyway. With Halo 3 and GTA4 due in a few months I'll have to pick one of these up :D

    The 65nm processor upgrade would have been nice.

    i think the same as grandmaster, price cuts would've been better

    and it's a shame this one doesn't come with wifi... and that the hd-dvd addon is not gonna be available in black...

    It's tempting but I think I'll save my dough and get a Geforce 8800 GTX at some stage :)

    This has got me a little closer to wanting one, however, i am still gunning toward the ps3 strictly for its blu-ray options and wifi amoungst others. if xbox was hd without buying another component and wifi, i might go with it... i can play halo 3 when it comes out on my bros 360.

    That will all be included on version 2.0 of XBOX 360.

    My thoughts as well.
    Would have to be 50 dollars for me to even want the new xbox...

    I played on the ps3 at work today... not that i'm supposed to. just couldn't resist trying out the wireless controller while i was bored. with my bad eye sight, i just managed to make out the image on the 26" tv on display. Luckily, i didn't get caught as my manager was doing some work while sitting right in front of the PS3 display unit. :p

    You mean the Xbox 720?

    Personally, I am waiting for the Xbox 1080. I think if it has less than 4 numbers, it is a sign of inadequacy on the part of the owners.

    this has been confirmed for almost 2 months.

    they don't have to cut the price ..the are selling gajillions of them. They already are just barely profitable as it is ..and retailers don't make money on them. Hdmi will be necessary to implement 1080p ... but again ..its not even a big deal ..if you have a good tv ..then 720p is just as good ..if not better than 1080p on something crappy.

    I'm upset that they didn't do this before last Christmas (when I got my 360) but I can't really complain. I don't really need HDMI now. I'm content playing 360 games in 720p as it is a definite improvement over 480i / standard definition. I also think I have used the two HDMI ports on my plasma set anyway.

    The larger hard drive sounds interesting, but I stream music from my pc to the 360 so it would've meant the ability to save 120gb worth of data would translate into saving all the demo downloads I have without worries. There won't be a price cut for a while as long as sony is selling PS3s for an arm and a leg. It's something people will have to get used to for a longer amount of time.

    This has been speculated for two months. Microsoft never confirmed that speculation until two days ago.
