    Microsoft sure does like releasing limited edition Xbox 360s
    This one looks rather ugly, IMO.
    I guess they're trying to promote the game up. [​IMG]

    Microsoft is only releasing 500 of the consoles (not that they're going to sell all of those ugly things [​IMG])
    More pictures of this console below.

    Out of the corner of your eye
    The first couple of GTAs were not Sony exclusive ... they came out on the PC first.

    Nice job on the 360, though.

    Did anyone see the XBox360 controller with the keyboard built-in? Is that new? I've never seen it before!

    i think it looks cool, but i don't think GTA deserves their own limited edition console.

    I had an Official Xbox Magazine thing from July 2007 (somewhere in Summer 2007) that had a picture of it.

    yeah, its old:

    Xbox 360 Messenger Kit

    Microsoft released a small keyboard suitable for messaging in the Summer of 2007, coinciding with the launch of Windows Live Messenger on Xbox 360. The device is named the Xbox 360 Chatpad.[7] This 47-key keyboard connects to the expansion port on the bottom of the standard controller. Additionally, a headset is included, as normal 360 headsets do not plug into the Chatpad (though cellphone headsets can be plugged into the Chatpad). The Chatpad also sports backlit keys and a dedicated messenger button (that flashes when a message arrives).[8][9][10]

    Released on September 4, 2007, the Xbox 360 Messenger Kit sells for a retail price of $29.99 USD and £24.99 GBP and includes a wired headset. (It should be noted that standard Xbox 360 wired headsets cannot connect to the chatpad due to the lack of the side pins). Microsoft does not currently provide drivers to make the Chatpad work with a PC.

    USB HID-compliant keyboards can be plugged directly into the console and will work in the same way.

    That made no sense.

    If its not prone to having RROD, then that means it probably wont get it. "And thus not having the falcon chipset"(its not just a motherboard, its a revision of the processor in a 65nm process)? The revision will make it less prone to RROD, not having it would make it more likely to have RROD.

    Also, why are they giving white accessories with that black 360?

    There's really no merit of Elite over Pro considering the price difference.

    GTA4 logo on the faceplate can easily be decal'ed, and a vinyl sticker can do a similar job on the body.
    The bottom line is, it looks better than regular Elite, I love gloss paint.

    I wanna see a gloss wine red X360 Pro, I definitely want one.

    v so off topic =P I think I'm still at 1.9. I'd rather use my time playing Disgaea 3 than updating. I haven't updated my 360 FW either, but it connects to LIVE all right.

    That is not possible, when you connect to live you will be prompted to download the new update.

    I would get a GTA IV limited edition xbox 360. For the simple reason if it RoDs, it might come back as a normal white 360 [​IMG]

    that's pretty lame. the halo 3 models actually looked kinda alright because it was an all over type deal. this gta one just looks like someone has stuck stickers on an elite.

    I meant my firmware. Doesn't look like MS is interested in banning.

    The RRoD is inevitable on all 360 systems, the real question is, will Microsoft repair wash it?
