I was going to buy an elite version this evening online cause I thought 250 was a good price, especially when I can get 1250 ipoints from the transaction. But I've just found rumors that Microsoft might be releasing a blu-ray version of the unit soon. I'm wondering if this might affect new games released? I don't want to buy an 'old style' unit only to find in a years time that all new released games won't work on my console.
Also I've read a lot of comments saying the machine is very noisy. I was defo going to be using the machine for streaming videos from my PC, so this could be an issue. Just how noisy is the xbox 360???
