I'd wait for an announcement. MS are bound to try and shake things up soon for Sony. If you've waited this long I think it's worth it.

I've had one since launch day and have been frighteningly excited about several games but on reflection there's not one title I couldn't live without.

The early launch means MS will definitely be one step ahead now. Even if the PS3 does inevitably pull off several killer aps.

The rumours are just rumours at the moment, nothing has been confirmed.

There is definately a new version planned with HDMI and 120gb drive, but when this will happen I have no idea (most likely another few months just so more warranties can run out, which will stop returns for replacements).

The black one was first rumoured in Australia I think by a retailer claiming Microsoft Australia had confirmed this and were pushing for a PS3 time release (which if true, they missed in Japan and America, so why even both for Europe?).

If they are planning this, they may as well go the whole hog and add the HD-DVD Drive to the actual machine rather than as an add-on.

We'll just have to sit tight and see what happens, but sure as sh!t, if this does happen, it will be nice, pricey and most of us will be sucked in.

so i should buy one as soon as i can?or wait

Despite earlier claims to the contrary, Microsoft may in fact be developing a next-generation Xbox 360 with a built-in HD DVD drive.

DigiTimes says sources in Taiwan's optical disc drive (ODD) industry have cofirmed that Microsoft is currently in the process of selecting manufacturing partners for the second-gen console, and if development and certification proceeds smoothly, the company could launch the new Xbox 360 in the first half of 2007.

Microsoft has thus far remained mum on this most recent round of rumors.
