I went to bestbuy the other day to purchase an xbox 360 elite. They were sold out online and newegg was sold out too. I talked with the salesperson, and he said that microsoft has not shipped any new 360's since Christmas. He said that they were improving it for a new version. Anyone heard likewise?

I haven't heard anything about this but more than likely M$ are just gonna put a new chip in.I don't think it will be major but i have read rumors of a new 360 with a HD-DVD drive integrated and games might switch to HD-DVD because they are getting larger and DVD-9 won't be able to hold them anymore.

The Elite was limited. But now the Elite becomes the Premium, so just get a new Premium, if you can't find an Elite.

Have a look at the comparison table here:

hey metal can u post if u got a falcon or not? i was thinking about just getting a pro now because I already have an ehthernet and hdmi and don't plan on needing that much hd space. I was more worried about getting a falcon or not. Please tell!

There was a recent heas sink upgrade.
They may be switching all models to HDMI.

Doubt they will switch to HD-DVD for games. That essentially makes all new games incompatible with current consoles, and is a total RETARD business move.

Also, if ur into piracy... i hear the elite models are very difficult to pirate yourself.

Read this article from anandtech:

It will tell you about falcon and also how to check. I was thinking about pro, but the chances of falcons are better for the elite and thats the only thing holding me back from getting a pro. Please post your results. Also, where did you order from?

metal u still alive?

The shipping issues are down to the fact that demand has out stripped supply, Microsoft simply underestimated the demand for its console and has simple sold out.

i have my 360. its the falcon. its nice cool and qiuet except for when your playing games the dvd drive is so loud
February 27, 2008 9:58:30 PM

okay cool. if nothing new comes out in march, then im getting the pro like u. its good that u got a falcon. if u hadn', i probably will end up waiting until august or whenever. but thanks, happy gaming! we should play sometime once i get one.

actually, I just got one over the weekend. At the local Sam's, they had a really nice deal on the elite and they said that all the stock they had were falcons, so i took it. I can't play on weekdays, but will send u one soon

My Elite finally died the other day. I first experienced a red ring on Feb. 1st, but did not see it again until March 5th. I'm going to the UPS store tomorrow to ship it, and hopefully I get it back soon.

post this crap somewhere else. theres a forum for ps3 vs 360. I don't want to hear it here.

It's a valid opinion. There's not that much difference between the two consoles but the 360 has a huge failure rate - i.e. waste of money.

But - if you don't want to read crap on the internet, unplug your network cable.

I favor the PS3, because I'm still able to play it. My Xbox360 is currently at one of Microsoft's wonderful repair facilities. :??:

there is a different forum for xbox 360 vs ps3.... guess what its called. I don't care if ure opinion is different than mine, but I made this forum so if people find out more information about the xbox 360 (blu-ray, jasper, etc.) they could post it here so others could find the information easier than just googling xbox 360 or something of that nature
