    I believe the circuitry needed for it is not in the original 360 Its only capable of analogue outputs.

    What I haven't seen confirmed is whether the HDMI port on the elite is HDCP-enabled for the HD-DVD add-on......if it isn't there could be a lot of people up-in-arms once they start enabling the ICT flag on HD-DVDs.

    As a non owner, I am pleased with this but why no wireless adapter?

    And the official one is £50 which is silly money!

    I want one!! I have wanted a 360 since they were launched but have never been able to afford one really. I will get one and when I do it will be this version.

    Don't care about the HDD or HDMI (don't have and don't plan on getting an HDTV) but it is BLACK Finally it will match my hifi and won't look like every other fashion accessory!

    Does anybody know what version of HDMI is supported on the unit 1.1 / 1.3 ? the PS3 supports 1.3 and offers quite a few improvements over the original HDMI 1.1 spec

    Gizmondo posted an interview with Albert Penello (Director of Global Marketing for Microsoft's Xbox 360)

    http://www.xbox-scene.com/

    Gizmodo: There was talk about how the processor was going to be cooler-running and perhaps quieter.
    * Penello: No. we haven't announced anything like that.

    Are Scan going to be getting any in stock? Would be my first port of call if so!

    George, the only confirmation of a European release so far is 'Summer'. It will definately be coming to Europe, and it will definately be after the US gets it first.

    The main purpose of the larger hard disk is to better utilise the Video Marketplace which is currently only available in the US. It's expected that Video Marketplace will launch this year in the UK and possibly Europe and I therefore expect the launch of both that and the 360 Elite to coincide.

    Its definately shiny toy syndrome I should imagine most people on here suffer from it.
    I do! I want a black Xbox and a PS3.... and a 24inch Monitor to connect them and my PC.... and an ATi X2900XTX or GF8900.....

    They have removed some of the things that made 360s look lame next to PS3 - bad looks (in my opinion anyway), noisy (assuming this version will have the CPU on a smaller process to make it cooler), and the small HDD.

    However the PS3 still tempts me - and I won't be able to resist it when MGS4, GTA4 and the new Gran Turismo are all out, I can run FAH when I'm not playing games, I can upgrade the hard drive on my own, run Linux if I feel like it, connect it to either Wifi or Gigabit ethernet..... *drools*

    Well the purchasing manager has got back to me after getting in touch with one of the U.K distributors and there official line was, ''No info for U.K release just U.S information''

    Personally he seems to think they may release in the U.K closer to XMAS to kill sales of the PS3...

    from what Ive seen the HDCP 'flag's HD content wont be switched on until 5 years time or so - a large number of HDTVs in the USA are not HDCP (from memory the vast majority)

    there is no way

    no way @ all that the xbox 360 looks dated.

    sure, the ps3 looks gorgiouse. but the 360 design looks just as fresh and modern. There just very diffrent takes on the same theme.

    Reading the interview post makes me think the elite will be as noisy as the standard model. The guy basically says that they haven't changed anything of any significance.

    I dont beleive this, I have waited till Sunday to treat myself to a 360, it arrived TODAY and now I read this

    Although on the bright side, I don't really see any major differences, the larger HD is gonna be available separatley if you need it, and is there any quality improvement over component/HDMI.

    I do plan to buy a 1080p screen so this is the one thing stopping me unboxing my nice new toy - and built in upscaling, what do I do

    I wanna play crackdown and gears of war!!
