At least by then the new chips will be in production so we might get a cooler, quiter Elite.
You are just paying extra for a bigger hd and a black console at the end of the day
I think the elite is a complete waste of time to be honest. They should be focusing on reducing the cost of the core and premium models plus offering colour choice. MS seem to have completely lost the plot on the 360 range at the moment and need to focus on retaining their market lead.
THis means a lower price point and reducing the cost of the console, not introducing extra spec with minimal benefit.
The new cpu and hdmi are comming anyway which will reduce costs and bring most of the benefits. You are just paying extra for a bigger hd and a black console at the end of the day
the core and premium are also getting hdmi
Where did quite a few people on here hear that the Premium and Core systems will also be getting hdmi??
Exactly. Many people looking to get into console gaming are still confused about whether to get Core or Premium.
What the hell is confusing about it ??
If you want hard drive, buy a Premium
If you want HDMI and a bigger hard drive then buy an Elite.
Most 1080p TV's don't accept 1080p via VGA or component so for most 1080p
TV owners the Elite will be a good thing.
yup everyone starts from the begining, need to accomadate those who have zero knowledge and just want adviceThere's at least a couple of people on these forums everyday that ask "What's the difference/which should i get?"
Think of the poor parents out of their place in a games store who've just got a Xmas list that says Xbox360.
Though it may be hard to believe here, there are still those who've never heard the phrase HD or HDMI or Live.
not according to MS.
There was a rumour before the elite was offically announced that the elite would be a limited run, and then HDMI and the bigger HDD would then be rolled into the Premiums, but when the elite was announced, MS said that was not the case, and the 3 SKU's would be staying as they are.
That's exteremely unlikely, they aren't going to have seperate production lines with one set making machines with HDMI and the other with the old style motherboard (sans HDMI)
