Pros memory, color, hi definition cables
Cons Medioker mic, have to buy wireless connector
Summary The elite not for casual gamer but if your a serious gamer then this is well worth it. Having all the memory is nice. Having a black xbox is awesome it makes it very unique. hi-def cables come with it which is nice. Buy them sepreatley and there a 100 dollars. You might want to buy your own mic because the one it comes with is medioker. Another disadvantage is having to buy a 100 dollar wireless connector for xbox live. But overall a nice console.
Pros Xbox live is very easy to work, cheaper than some other gaming consoles, marketplace is great, dashboard interface owns, the console just makes me a little erect lol :P
Cons Red ring of death!!! although i have not yet experienced the irritation of a fried xbox!
Summary Xbox 360, and also xbox elite, are top notch if i do say so myself, i own both xbox 360 and ps3 consoles and i must say that sony have put themselves in it this time, with blue-ray and all that, cause if they use blue-ray for games, each game will cost like 200-300 dollars, although they will be very very good! and also online gaming is far better on the xbox 360.... peace!
Pros bigger hard drive, hdmi
Cons its not hdmi 1.3, but oh well.
Summary i reckon its a good idea, especially the bigger hard drive, but i wont be rushing out to buy one for one reason- no games yet that i know of support 1080p, so it'll look pretty much the same on a tv.Updated
i probably wont even buy it, just see if i can trade in my current 360.
Pros HDMI, bigger HD, a new color
Cons No modular HD DVD drive, no WiFi.
Summary I agree with many stating that they feel bamboozled by Micro$oft (including myself) because most would've spent the $500 to purchase the best system Micro$oft had to offer at the time. Now the Premium users are left out in a way. Sure small things like a new color, bigger hard drive and finally HDMI support are there but this should've been offered at launch time and NOT a year and a half later.
That said, there's only a few things as previously mentioned that are worth the added price. Luckily we can at least upgrade the hard drive and can still see HD games/movies. However, to infuriate more users, Micro$oft should've included a modular drive so that Elite owners could upgrade to a nice internal HD DVD drive down the road. You figured they would think of going all out if they were going to p1ss a lot of people off. Oh well my two cents.
