Excellent, personally I would have gone with the option of rechargabel batteries and a kind of stand to mount the pads on so they could charge!

That is a possibility too. From the article:

The round 1/8" connector is for the Xbox Live mic/headset, while Microsoft isn't officially stating what the two connectors on the left and right are for, we figure it is related to charging the controller. The top of the controller also features a new connector, once again one that Microsoft is being very quiet about.

This is excellent news, tho I am not sure why MS are being quiet - I will start asking questions - I won't be such an avid gamer on the thing, but I think I am going to have to have one :p

I guess if it is going to be $300 - then it will be £300 tho :eek:

Got two Xboxes at the moment, will have to start making space on my shelf.

I wouldn't be surprised if we see £350, more would be pushing it, but we do seemed to get dicked with pricing.

You have two xBoxes....... in one building? that even possible?

Haha :D

Yeah, I don't know why they don't just use standard currency conversion? People in Australia are even worse off.

You guys will be lucky if its £300, because last time it was something like £479 (though they have said it will be less than that this time :p).

I think you'll find that the Xbox will be priced around 250 pounds this time around in the UK, as microsoft came under heavy fire last time, due to the enormous exchange rate.

If i'm wrong i'm gonna be buying loads of US Xboxes and exporting them to the UK.

Any takers? :)

I intend to make mine multi-region anyway, I despise the whole PAL/NTSC/Region lock out idea. It's just an annoyance and I've modified every console I've owned to play imported games. Should mods be released soon enough, I'll be importing a 360 from the states :)

MS plans to release 360 with a simultaneous worldwide launch. Well maybe a 3 or 4 weeks apart in each region (NA, Europe, Japan). Not sure if they can pull it off, but they keep on mentioning that the launch window worldwide will be almost the same.

Therefore I doubt mods will be available that fast :p

I bought one damaged off ebay and cleaned it, was no longer damaged... Funny how having half a carpet inside the case can give it problems.

Definatly, the guy who sold to me it said he had problems with it's DVD drive and couldn't play Ghost Recon 2 with it -- I found save games on the HDD (as well as his xbox live details ... oops) so dunno what the score was.

Frankly, I reckon it was cos of the muck. It is still missing pretty much all of its torx screws and rubber feet, trying to look for replacements.

I dunno, I don't particularly want 2 xboxes and an xbox 360 :p
