That is strange. Maybe he means he thinks the white 360 (or black version) is so ugly that he keeps it chained up in his basement lest any vistors see it. If it was blue, he'd let it upstairs, thus making it easier to play.

it's pretty obvious its a dev kit, it's got the huge tumor on it.

No trees were harmed forming this post, though many electrons were inconvenienced.

These might not be too difficult to obtain. I thought even XNA programmers (everybody) would be able to get one of these later in the year.

The last thing I need from an Xbox is for it to start scratching my BDs in the same way it scratches game disks.

Believe it or now, BD owners dodged a bullet on this one.

It isn't the size of the disk that counts, but how you use it.

My Xbox has never scratched a disc of mine and it's from 2005. I've used it both vertically and horizontally. Guess I'm lucky huh?

Launch day pre-order owner that RRoD'd in January 2008: no disc scratches ever here, on either one.
