    People want to give shit to the Slim because it's Microsoft but the console is getting great reception. It doesn't red ring (don't go "HURR HURR BECAUSE IT DOESN'T HAVE RED LIGHTS"; in fact it has better ventilation... I think), it has built in Wi-Fi, doesn't need an energy supply from an outlet for Kinect (if you buy a Kinect, poor suckers), etc. It's a good console.

    It's not really surprising. Remember when PS3 slim came out?

    Well the Slim was also half the price of a standard PS3 while this is actually pricier than other Xbox models.

    But yeah, remodels = cash. People just like "OH SHINY NEW".

    Yeah... Well, I'll go back to enjoying my computer. Good games and--Hey, wait a minute, do consolefags need to upgrade?! That seems like a contradiction to their regular arguments?! GREAT SCOTT!

    Are you sure it wasn't the 360s themselves exploding? [​IMG]

    I would think the built-in wifi receiver counts as a price drop. When I bought one for my brother's 360, it cost freakin $80+ tax.

    I'm just wondering how many people have bought it thinking this is an entirely new console.

    many have, where if you ask me its jsut a case mod

    MS have the biggest balls and lowered the warranty for RRoD and e74 to 1 year now for those consoles ... very bad move in my opinion.

    Because a bunch of random kiddies Youtube vids totally prove that. Anyway it has an automatic shut off if it begins to overheat and there's also improved ventilation, so if you get the so called Red Ring it's your fault.

    As for disc scratching, it's just safe enough to say to not be stupid and fall on your console.

    Learn some proper debate and proper English outside of going "lolrrod" and calling me a whore and then we'll talk kid. Until then maybe you should go back to the kiddie pool with the rest of the other tots. The grown-ups are talking.
