I doubt you can tell the difference.

Don't get it from my Costco...they just changed their return policy to 30 days....

No.

I want to have all HDMI components eventually, so I'll get one.
Especially if it has a bigger HDD.
post #35 of 94
I will buy the Xbox 360 2.0 with HDMI, I have had mine since day one. While I don't have a HDTV, or surround sound. I plan on getting everything I need for 1080p set up.
post #36 of 94
Got to get it for HD. 1080P for HD-DVD's without crappy VGA.
post #37 of 94
No. My TV is native 720p and it looks great over component. I don't have a DD+ capable receiver (well just a vintage 80s stereo receiver actually) so I won't see any possible advantage there.

I would like a larger hard drive though as I am constantly cleaning it off to make room for more downloadable content from the XBOX Live Marketplace.

I'm a bit unsure of how legit that picture was though. That really didn't look like a final product to me.
post #38 of 94
I'm sure they'll sell the hard drive as a stand-alone as well so us current Xbox 360 owners can have 120Gb.
post #39 of 94
i would......i would probably sell my current one on ebay...then use that money to buy the new one
post #40 of 94
Bigger harddrive & HDMI ?? I'm an MS biatch, of course I will pick one up.
post #41 of 94
I probably wouldn't just because it took me so long to buy the one I own now. I would love to have the HDMI but if I have to buy another one, I say no.

is this confirmed? I thought it was only for TVs. Didnt know it was for all electronics. The only reason i bought my 360 from them was for their return policy. Not because its abusable but because something eventually will go wrong.
post #43 of 94
I said "NO" until I read that my 360 could be used as a HD-DVR someday.

Now my vote is "HELL YES" bring on the IPTV.
post #44 of 94
Hell yeah! Well, sort of. I will dump the old one.

The current 360 is no work of art and it makes a real weak AV device. It is loud, has a bad reliability problem, and the whole 11 gig drive and no way to write to an external 3rd party drive nonsense is just stupid.

If they make a new 360 that runs quieter, more reliable, has larger HDD, HDMI out, and (hopefully) an internal HD-DVD... Look out because I am IN LIKE FLYNN!!!

As a MCE user I would rebuy for Vista cablecard support.
post #46 of 94
Anyone know the return policy( Days) for Best Buy and Target?? for Consoles

I was thinking more in the lines of the iPOD. Millions of people seem to jump on each new version of the iPod that comes out with minimal tweaks and improvements, so I'm sure 360v2 will sell like crazy too.

=MATT=
post #48 of 94
My TV only does 720p/1080i so its not really all that necessary for me.
post #49 of 94
I wont re-buy just for the HDMI, but if it does come out before my replacement warrenty is up in Feb 08, I foresee a couple issues with my current unit.

Then again, who knows. Its a ways away. I would just be happy to have a cooler/quieter system.

I second that. I wont buy a new one unless there is some type of compensation for us who bought the V1. I bought 2 at launch.
post #51 of 94
If/When they are available at Costco, yes I'll swap mine.
post #52 of 94
I was going to buy a second unit anyway!

ya, people are stupid, it appear you cannot replace the battery on the iPod, so you can only throw it in the bin and buy another one. It's like buying a printer from a corp that say publicly that next year there won't be any way to buy new ink nor refill your current pak. Spending cash to be doomed. The masses like that it seem.

The Xbox360 is like most american cars. They are nice, they work for a while but they have the strange habit of performing self-destruction before their 'expected' term. At least, american cars replacement parts are cheap compared to the oversee ones.

Keep on spending..!

I don't plan on buying/returning the HDMI 360.

I do however plan on "cashing in" my BB replacement plan on my existing unit so long as the v2 unit is out before mid-december of this year, which is when my plan expires

I already get the E-72 (74?) error fairly frequently on startup, so I already have an excuse in line
post #55 of 94
I will get that IPTV anyways. sounds like a good deal.
post #56 of 94
no, but I would use my replacement warranty to swap out for the better model. That's if they truly do make a revision and release a model the way it should have been from day 1.
post #57 of 94
Remember when msoft went on the defensive about how "HDMI isn't needed for HD" Now they go and do this.
post #58 of 94
With a view to getting an upgraded tv in the next year I have to say yes. Plus it will give me an opportunity (ie excuse) to mod my older 360.
post #59 of 94
I would say, hell no! Unless they take back the old one at half its original price or more.
Or, unless the HDMI units don't drop like flies, as the first units do.

Ah well, they don't have a choice...right?

First they said "You don't need a HD drive.", then they added a HD add-on.
Then they said "1080p is impossible.", then they added support for it.
The they said "HDMI is useless.", now they plan to add it.

You can trust them as much as Sony.
