    The big issue is the custom port on the back for Natal, preumably this means existing XBOX 360's are not compatible with Natal?

    We know they removed some of the hardware elements of Natal to software running on the 360, taking up around 10% of the 360's processing. Is it possible these new XBOX's could be clocked 10% higher to compensate?

    I recall them saying natal is compatible with 40 million units at the conference. Im not sure if thats all of the 360 units but u dont need a special console for flail fest.

    It will probably have a USB connection to original Xbox 360s that connects to a separate Kinect port.

    The older 360's used standard 2.5" SATA HDD that could be replaced anyway.

    Google it and you'll see you can. Basically you take off the old drive, open up the container that houses it and replace it with another 2.5" hard drive.

    They're just normal harddrives with special firmware.

    Looks nice, but I hope they make a matte white or black one. I hate that gloss finish that everyone seems to be obsessed with using these days.

    It looks nice now, but finger prints and other smudges will make it look shitty over time.

    I am considering upgrading. But I wonder if this will be bundled with kinetic for a special price Nov. 4th.
