Well they justified saying that because even if u download all of Marketplace content (back then) you still would have space left. That's not the case anymore, plus you may have some music on there as well. I believe there will be a bigger HDD for the same reason they announced 1080p, a HDDVD player...... to match the PS3.

The reason they didn't announce it at x06, I think, is because then people would be less willing to purchase a 20gb premium pack right now when a bigger HDD one will be coming out in a few months. Why would u wanna buy a 20gb version now, and have to buy a bigger HDD later and sell yours?

Even when buying a new 360 in the shops or online, you can still be buying a second hand one ^_^

My brother had an interview at one of the repair centers, they said that when they get a 360 in from someone and they can't find a problem with it, they'll box it back up and sell it as new.

Which is probably what happened to me. I send mine in to be repaired, they sent it back and it's in worse condition then it was.

Yowza, that really suxX0r. The mfg date on mine is 4/06, so far none that I know of in this range have died. I'd consider making a special request.

That's illegal in most states. They are required to mark it as "factory refurbished". I'd report that ****.
