    120gb harddrive, HDMI and its black. Worth $479?
    Wheres the integrated wireless?

    Is it me or is microsoft becoming really agressive towards the Wii
    heres an actual quote from microsoft: “We don’t feel like the Wii customer and the Xbox customer are the same thing, We think that as soon as the Wii customer turns 14 they want something else.”

    I was considering getting a 360 and a HD tv so this would be perfect if its released over here.

    Kind of a harsh line, but I would say the opposite. It seems like their strategy is to completely ignore the Wii and try and grab the people who are considering a PS3.

    Funny cause my Wii and 360 are about 2ft apart, GG MS GG.

    Wow... MS wants "smart" consumers like you. BTW, a lot of MS consumers get the "shaft" which is odd since MS has so many consumers... Well good thing they hold a monopoly in the OS business.

    Reading something on xbox scene, microsoft sound like their going to release some kind of adapter so you can use HDMI on the old xboxs. A 120gb harddrive is useless unless your downloading movies off xbox live. We still don't get the movies feature in the UK yet. So if the 120gb harddrive is released in europe and they arn't doing the movies it will be totally useless.

    This is what usually Nintendo does. Improving the console in 1 year after its release and sell for a reasonable price and you'd regret buying the old one. I really pity those who've recently got their older Xbox360.

    Theres no drastic advantage of HDMI over Component:

    The 120gb HD will be retailed alone, so unless your an unreasonable HD nut who has to have HDMI, or if you really, really want an official black Xbox, then the Elite is for you. If not, then you're not missing out on anything.

    I think 1 year is a little bit unrealistic number. How long did we have to blow in the NES cartridges before they made the top load? Ugly redesign btw. SNES? Ugly and more than 1 year IIRC. Virtual Boy and N64 did not get a redesign. GB held on for longer than a year before Pocket. And everyone else knows the rest... But with the Wii, I definately see a few areas for improvement, but not many.

    As for the Xbox stuff...heck, I dont even have an old xbox yet. Yay me for holding out and not regretting it [​IMG]

    I think Nintendo does this more on handhelds. Because:

    (oh this one's fun) Gameboy Advance > Gameboy SP > SP with brighter screen > Gameboy Micro !!!!
    Nintendo DS > DS Lite (i'm not even talking about different colors)
    Wii > Wii with DVD player support ?

    Nintendo consoles always have good and innotive ideas but they ALWAYS lack something and they change this with newer models. I'm not going to suprise if they release new Wii's with wireless Wiimote + Nunchuck.
