Default Xbox Slim, anyone?

It's Black. It's Shiny. It's Wifi enabled right out of the box.

So who's getting one?


I am thinking of trading in the ol' 60gb box for it, as it'll already save me $150 on the Wifi adaptor.

No, I currently have to plug the damn thing in with the ol' blue network cable. This way I can get the wifi built in, plus the larger HD.

Not sure how much of a trade in I'll get, but at least the new box is shipping for the same price as the old.

Someone has already modded the new XBOX slim and I have to say it was a good mod. Shame the manufacturer's don't thing of this idea. Would sell more maybe.

Something from the video I noticed when he was trying to get the disk out the case was moving a lot. Like the PS3 before it I'm thinking a stand might be required when standing upright.

Otherwise a sexy machine when modded.

Still some minor issues with the system, even slight movement can badly damage discs

E3 10: Do NOT do this with your new Xbox 360- Destructoid

and it still has overheating issues however the system will now shut itself off when it starts to get too hot

Xbox 360 Slim is overheating-proof, a Red Dot replaces the Red Ring of Death

It is now impossible for an XBOX to get the red ring of death.
Did they fix the problem no...... they removed the lights

I traded in my "original" 360 Elite (Well out of warranty and very noisy ... but still works fine) and a wireless adaptor on a pre-order for one of these new "silent" units ... I have $148 change over price.

Not to bad considering the wireless is built in and faster than the old version plus the Hard Drive is 130Gb bigger

I'm surprised they haven't gone with a Blueray as well.

This would add to the machines appeal and longetivity.
