Can the HDD be upgraded on this like the PS3?
#2
very good deal, heat added.
#3
you can buy a seperate HDD to expand it, they sell them seperately in various places

thats what I intend to do, for now the 4gb is easily enough for little old me lol
#4
another new xbox o_O
#5
is the only difference between this and the other £189.99 the hard disk and is it def possible to just plug in any usb powered hard disk to store games saves etc to?
#6
as far as I know (is looking on the web now to make sure I didnt make any boo boo's) the only difference is the hard drive.

regarding plugging anything into it im not sure, you may need to use a specific one, Il have to look into that myself
#7
well i know you couldn't before but wondered if this was something new that had been added with the update - i know you could save music/movies ect and it would read them but not games saves would be good to know!
#8
Old xbox, no built in wifi

This xbox, built in wifi

:)
#9
lol I love the people voting cold/not saying why.

please judge the deal on its individual merits in comparison to other prices, not due to some personal bias towards ps3 etc

this new xbox is a quieter system as well as compatible with the new video camera system which will be introduced later in the year. as far as the game save, you cannot same them on usb hard drives. it is useful to have a larger harddrive so that you can copy the whole game to it which makes the less use of your DVD and hence much quieter ...
#11
and this is a hot deal for me

The hard drives in these new model 360s are still proprietary. This 4 GB model has the hard drive slot, so you can buy a hard drive to go in it, but that will no doubt cost more overall than just buying the 250 GB model.

You can use any USB stick/drive, but you can only assign up to 16 GB of space on each USB device for use as 360 memory. You can use up to 2 devices for up to 32 GB of storage. You can store gamertags, game saves, XBLA games and DLC on a USB stick/drive and you can install disc based games as well. If the device is larger than 16 GB, for example, if you use a 500 GB hard drive, you can assign up to 16 GB for use as a 360 memory unit, then you can use the rest of the space for music and movies. The size limitation is there so that they can carry on selling their branded hard drives at a mark up.

1) As before, you can buy the official Xbox S 250gb hard drive and turn this Xbox into the one with the hard drive if you want to.

2) You can also use any USB connecting hard drive for music, pics & films but not your game saves or Arcade games.

3) In addition to this you can also use 2 x 16gb flash memory sticks at a time as storage (giving you a total of 36gbs and this can be used for storing your game saves, Arcade downloads etc etc)

4) In a short while, as is the case with the 120gb Elite, it will become known exactly which Western Digital hard drive Microsoft are using in the 250gb model.
You will then be able to buy that hard drive at normal retail prices, copy the necessary driver and then fit that hard drive into the suitable caddy at a greatly reduced cost compared to the official article, if you can be bothered.

5) Oh and for the fanboys out there trying to make a little dig about fitting hard drives here's one thing PS3 can't do. If you format your external USB hard drive to HFS+ you lose the 4gb file size limitation FAT32 imposes.
This is rather nice for playing those high quality .wmv high definition film encodes (which are bigger than 4gb) some enjoy so much.

TBH I have found the new Xbox to be so much quieter than the previous model that playing games from the dic drive is no longer the noisy affair it once way.
The Xbox isn't silent doing this but it is much much quieter.

Mind you, you could use the 1 or 2 sticks of 16gb flash memory and save and run the game from your storage and cut the disc drive noise entirely, at which point the new Xbox is almost silent.
It's a very impressive piece of kit - and some will undoubtedly be glad that the rumours they would ditch the n class wi-fi on the Arcade version turned out to be untrue.

Nonsense - they are not proprietary in the slightest, they are standard 2.5" drives which can be bought from any computer component retailer.

The size limit doesn't encourage the sales of anything except 2.5" drives, which Microsoft don't make.

If you don't use the HDD to run games it is very noisy with the disc tray. Mine rattles like nobodies business, and frankly it shouldn't. I like it and still play it but wow, games like Red Dead the hum of the disc tray is annoying.

If anyone reads the above, I would ignore it, as it implies you can buy an off the shelf 2.5" drive and insert it directly into this 360. You cannot.

Here's a picture of the drive from one of the new 360s: -

While the drive inside may be a standard drive, it's in a proprietary casing and needs to be formatted in a particular way for it to work with an Xbox 360. Clearly, if you could just pop any 2.5" drive straight into a 360, nobody would bother buying Microsoft's drives, but you can only do that by buying the proprietary casing and using a tool such as HDDHackr to format the hard drive.

i'd rather pay £175 for the 250gig model, it just makes more sense spending £30 extra for all that extra storage space. In my opinion the Arcade version should have been marketed at around £110 especially of the new xbox 360S elite version with the 250gig HD can be had for £175 still.

your right when you say frankly it shouldnt, mine does not rattle at all, very low hum noise when a disc spins, maybe you have a faulty one?

my logic behind buying this one and not the HDD model was cost

I dont really need the 250gb hd currently but if I do in the future it wont work out that much extra.
£140+the value of the game/guitar easily pays for the hard drive should I want to buy it later.

you can even trade in van halen/the guitar for £20-25 I believe cash.

I agree with Jake1983, it sounds like somethings wrong with yours, mine doesn't rattle at all, it only makes that quiet humming & slight whooshing sound a recent & decent PC disc drive makes.

It's also worth pointing out that you can even side-step this with the new Arcade by using 2 flash memory sticks up to 16gb each and saving games to them, you can play games off of them just like you can with the hard drive sku.
#21
if it's humming/rattling it could be the surface your xbox is on, mine does it when i place it vertically on the floor.
#22
Curiouser and curiouser.

Sorry to diagree again but I have always set my Xboxes up vertically but always on a hard surface and absolutely straight & upright.
#23
Is online now too X)
May go for this and sell the game/guitar anyone know how much id get for them?
#24
I got £19 cash for the game/guitar in CEX

I didnt really try elsewhere as I was using the money to knock the price of the xbox down on the day!
£120 isnt bad really! once youve traded in the game/guitar
