Will you re-buy the X360 for HDMI?

post #1 of 94
Thread Starter 
I'm curious whom of you that own a unit now, will be getting another X360 when the HDMI version comes out. If so, what are you doing with your existing unit?

(IF this actually exists)

I for one will be getting the new unit. I already own multiple X360 hardware since I run a tournament company, but my personal X360 in use now will likely be traded in or given to my brother's family.

I need the 120 HDD for marketplace content and the cooler chip should make these last a while. Plus I own a Samsung 1080p DLP and I have MANY more options for image tweaks via HDMI than VGA. And finally, owning the HD DVD player, I'd rather play 1080p over HDMI than VGA. I hate the VGA color profile.

So, how about you guys?

Now there is an option, i could sell it to my dad for 300 and pay for the new xbox with hdmi

I'll buy a separate 120GB hard drive (assuming MS releases one), but I have no use for HDMI in my home theater at present. This may change if I ever get a new receiver, but I'm in no great hurry to replace my H/K AVR 430.

Only if it's cooler and quieter.

I planned on buying a second one for my household anyway so my 15 year old son could have is own 360. We already have 2 live accounts 2 PS2's and 2 original Xbox's. If it wasn't for getting a PS3 and a Wii this christmas, I probably would have already purchased a second 360. So I'm not going to rebuy....I'll just be buying one as a second 360.
There is no choice for that, so I didn't vote.

Hmmm It's like ripping off your own dad and giving him the dinosaur!

I need a Maybe option because I havent made up my mind. Depends on a lot of things. Also depends on if I can get a good trade in. But I guess I could give my current 360 as a gift to someone or sell it cheap to them. I have a friend who is currently borrowing my old Xbox. There will be a market of people who dont need the latest and greatest but would still like better then they have.

I will purchase the extra console. That will be 3 in the house.

btw; my launch console got the three lights of death last night. MS is sending me the box.

Later

If I have a 1080p tv, I would defintely get it!
post #10 of 94
I still have a 720p tv, so not now. I would like to get the 120gig hard drive.

I've got 3 HD TVs/monitors (5 if you include 2 20" widescreen computer monitors) and 2 xbox360's. I would gladly buy another one for my plasma which has 2 HDMI inputs. I haven't connected the VGA because it is a pain in the A to get to the back of my plasma with both the VGA cable and audio cables. A simple HDMI cable would be perfect.

With my current setup my HDMI port is taken by the PS3, my TV doesn't do 1080p or handle upscaled DVDs very well (Panny Plasma) so I'm fine where I am.

Since I got my 360 very recently and got the Best Buy 2-year replacement plan, I suppose I could trade the thing in for the new model if it comes out in the next 2 years... or trade it in and get a new one with a NEW 2-year replacement plan if it doesn't. I'd have to get a new receiver with two HDMI inputs though...

Gotta use those in-store warranties for SOMETHING.

Who needs to rebuy when you can return yours with a product replacement plan?

Only the HD for me. Don't care that much about hdmi.

Same for me. I'll pay for that. If my 360 craps out next December when my 2yr warranty runs out, I'll get another one then... and I'll get it from Costco.

Don't need HDMI on the xbox 360 at this point, I've got a stand alone HD-DVD player, dvd player that use HDMI already, mu TV would see no overall improvment using HDMI over commponet.
post #18 of 94
I'll be buying it for the bigger HDD. The HDMI just adds options but I don't really need it at this point. You know though, something just occurred to me. Will you be able to upconvert DVD's via the digital output? That will really sway me to get one for that reason also.
post #19 of 94
Even though i just got my 360 in October, i will gladly buy the new hardware and delegate the old one to be a media center extender in either the computer room or the bedroom.

My TV only accepts 1080P through HDMI, I don't mind donating my current 360 to a family member. Besides, isn't HDMI the only way to pass DD+ and TrueHD audio to a receiver?
post #21 of 94
I will trade in my 360 I have now towards the new one,I have a 1080P set so I need HDMI.When I trade in my original 360 how will I be able to transfer all my game saves and other data on the old hard drive to the new one???? I don`t have the money to buy a new 360 so the old 360 is gonna pay for part of it.

Seconded.
post #23 of 94
I have a replacement plan on mine so I had to vote NO. Mine has minor issues at the moment but I can wait for the 2nd revision to replace it.
post #24 of 94
The question should have been: "Will you rebuy the new xbox revision each year just like you would if you had a PC?"
post #25 of 94
Yes. Because I wanted a second one anyway for full screen co-op gaming.
post #26 of 94
Not for awhile. My current one works just fine.
post #27 of 94
But will it have a HD DVD drive as well?
post #28 of 94
I will be buying my first unit for this reason. One of the main reasons I held out so long. This, and a pricedrop, could go a far way in making me go over to the MS side
post #29 of 94
well microsoft screwed up in the long run intitially by not having built in hd movie playback capabilities. now theyve screwed up by not initially adding an hdmi output on their console. I have no need for hdmi or 1080p at the moment so i wont be getting this one. if my console ever dies again and needs a replacement, theyd better send me a new one for free with hdmi.
post #30 of 94
I'll only get it if Microsoft has an Upgrade Option for current owners. I just got my Xbox 360 a month ago, and I don't think it sucks (that they're releasing a new Xbox 360), but if I had known I would've waited.
