    My Xbox360 got the RROD so many times it minaly fried itself..
    I cant buy it for about 4-5 months but that cause I have no games now and will buy them w/ the system.

    I want to make sure its worth buying.
    So now Im here trying to see the new Xbox360Slim reviews on google but I dont want store reviews.

    So here are questions for you~

    ==================================================
    1- Is the new Xbox360Slim worth buying for $350 (av/power wires, wireless controller, 250gb harddrive, console, NO games)?

    2- What games would be best for the new Xbox360Slim?

    3- Is the firmware updated on it (dashboard, features)?

    4- Whats your view on the Xbox360 Slim?

    5- Do you recommend the Xbox360Slim?

    ==================================================

    Really the only thing that they did from the existing models is put a GIGANTIC fan in there. Its bigger than the DVD drive. Runs suprisingly quiet though. You'll have to buy new power bricks for it as it still has one of those. If you think its worth it, be my guest. I'm already shitting on my brother for having to buy 3 different 360s when I've only had to buy 1 PS3.

    In terms of the dashboard, its nothing different than what you are used to. Upgrade options for the HDD are still limited to proprietary Microsoft drives. Only reason why I'd even slightly consider buying the "S" edition is the little Hexic like game the 360 comes installed out of the box. That game is painfully addictive.

    the xbox slim has a complete redesign from the old model

    the two chips (GPU and CPU) and now on one wafer, the heat sink is much larger, airflow through the case is less restricted, and the fan is much larger and more efficient

    I suggest if you are replaceing a RROD that you buy the cheaper 4GB unit for $200.

    now I can hear you saying, BUT I CANT REUSE MY HARD DRIVE or, I WANTED THE 250GB!

    well there are easy answers to this,

    if you have an existing xbox hard drive, just strip the case off and jam the drive in the drive slot useing foam or cardboard to keep it from moving (my old 60GB works just fine like this) eventually you will see new drive enclosures on ebay, and you cant get one if it makes you feel better

    if you want 250GB for cheap, just buy a drive compatible for reflashing and make one for about $40 same way of holding it in place

    I WOULD STILL GET A WARRANTY as I have heard then new units still go bad at about the same rate as the old units

    also make sure to keep your AV cables, the slim ONLY comes with a composite cable NO COMPONENT NO HDMI, but is still compatible with the old cable

    Very few PS3s fail, regardless of the model. Slim Ps3s are pretty solid overall.
    Very funny....not.

    dont buy the 4gb slim if you intend to go online, same games - such as halo reach, wont work online unless the hard drive is present.

    you honestly cant go wrong with either system.

    The question is not the if the 360 is worth buying, but if its worth buying multiple times.

    He's an idiot then for not taking advantage of the 3 year warranty you get when you buy an Xbox 360....

    If ANYONE hasn't taken advantage of their warranty they're an idiot...

    No, who ever you bought your 360 from is an idiot, and you should have pushed Microsoft harder.
