Does anybody know when the special edition xbox is coming out?
I have heard it is this month, but have heard no concrete date.

The assistant in Game mentioned it has a 20GB hard disk. Can anyone confirm this? Also, will this xbox be chippable, in the same way as the current one?

Are there any drawbacks to buying this special edition, as opposed to the current one? ;)

i doubt that M$ would but out an xbox with 20gb drive. they havent in an other SE so i dont think they will with this one either. One of the first rules of Gaming - never trust the guy in the shop. (I know i am the guy in the shop!!!)

i've got a crystal xbox on preorder form GAME, and had 2 e-mails on Friday - the first said the date was confirmed as 26th March, the second said 19th March - the official XBOX website shows the 19th - so i'm pretty sure it's the 19th.

Iv'e just received my crystal xbox from kanection.co.uk - gorgeous! :eek: (for an piece of plastic that is). Definately looks cool.

Its modded and with a 120Gb HD. It has surpassed all my expectations, all preloaded and ready-to-run. Got progressive working last night, although I don't seem to have any games working above 480p.

PGR2 running of HD is great, much quicker too.

Anybody wanna buy a cheap orginal xbox with controller? :)

I bought the crystal x-box this weekend, just need to decide on what games to get for it now:D
My original idea was to get the x-box and sell my PS2, was about to list it on ebay yesterday, then I remebered something:eek: there were rumours of an Ico2 a while back, damn, no way can I get rid of my PS2 now, Ico was the best game ever IMHO;)
Ah well, looks like I'll have the best of all worlds now, I have the Gamecube, PS2, Xbox, PC, GBA and Ngage:smashin: Hm, wonder if I'm gettin a tad carried away here:laugh:

How much did they charge you for that one mate?

About £290.00 (199.99 for x box and £90.00 for hard drive upgrade).

Not cheap, but worth it. Especially considering there was no hassle involved - worked straight out the box and all apps and progs preloaded (enigmah and backup tools etc.)

Plus obviously there was no electronics to mess with .. and subsequently destroy!

I've just ordered a SmartXX modded Crystal Xbox, with 120GH HD and Blue LED mod from www.premodded.co.uk. All for £287 inc P&P.

I'm very impressed with the speed of response to email enquiries. The list of references on the forums is also very impressive, plus I've only ever heard good things about them from this very forum.

I'll post what I think of it & the service when it arrives.
