anyways atleast it will have a PPC chip (AKA mac)
which version are you getting? with HDD or not? apparently
only the HDD version can emulate xBox1 games, which
i got plently of....

It comes out on december 2nd in Europe. But it costs €400 (or $480). for the Hard drive version. That's a lot of money... What are you paying in the states?

I guess the old black box will have to do for a while...

im hoping for the box with the hard drive & wireless controller

My little brother works at target & lets us use his employee discount (10%) so i figured i would just skip right in a few days after launch & pick up some 360's
save a little money boy was i wrong

target only got 12 boxes

tonight i jumped out of the car because i spotted the perfect "Xbox 360 Line starts ....HERE !" cone at a construction site

painted that perfect cone green & printed out a sign im set to be first in line after lunch

i believe, and i might very well be wrong that the HDD version is USD $399.
i think the non-HDD version is USD $299.

but what is crazy is they are selling (or were) on Amazon with a few games for USD $999....

hold on, let me find a LINK. <pause> nevermind they're all GONE.....

I heard that for Belgium, Holland and Luxemburg (that's a population of about 26 million) Microsoft has forseen only 2000 xboxes! That's sad
In case of delaying the launch they just make sure only 1 in about 10-20 interested people can buy one...

I'm definitely picking one up, but I'll be doing so after buying Christmas presents. I'd feel guilty blowing my cash on myself. And besides, I've already bought my own Christmas presents - a video iPod.

My roommate's pickin' one up - ordered it online at Walmart.

Can't say I'm that interested, but we'll see. He's got the controllers already for some reason, and 2 games. Weird.

It's like having the keys to your bike, but no bike...

I'm still working my way through a lot of games on the first Xbox. When I finally get done with those, then I'll move on to the 360. I like being a little behind the times cause I can buy all the games for half price. They may be old and used to somebody else but they're brand new to me!
