Default *rumor* ms employee leaks possible 360 update info

http://www.xboxic.com/news/2229

saying late 2007, if i were to guess, the updated console would coincide with Halo 3 release. Maybe that's just me, but it seems to make business sense to do it as such.

if only the new 360 supports IPTV, like the article says, im going to be PISSED

theres no reason they cant make an update and add a software renderer or something, i mean the thing has 3 CORES!
unless the signal is encrypted....

So wait you would need the new Xbox360 to be able to get IPTV, lol.

Looks like I hold off on the purchase until there's more concrete info on that.

i know, but i'm thinking that microsoft will have to offer some type of step-up program for the ppl that want iptv. like premium trade-in + $100 or core trade-in +$200, something along those lines, otherwise they would basically be neglecting those ppl that already have 360s. that's what i'm envisioning, something where original owners that want iptv will atleast have the option to upgrade their hdd/console/iptv for a price + trade-in.

i guess only time will tell though :/

apples and oranges. you pay the same amount for your xlb membership as one with this "updated" console does. yet, your xbl is restricted because you have a past revision? that's not even close to being GB/GBA/DS in which the handhelds are different. you pay for the features you want, you don't pay the same price for all to have certain features unavailable to you. no <3 for fanboys.

is this just me or did this just seem like common sense and you just felt necessary to flame something that "might" be wrong with a 360?

It is quite possible that the reason IPTV requires a new 360 is because of HDCP. Maybe the content providers wouldn't give MS licenses without it.

Put it this way. If this was the same situation with the PS3 this thread would be 3 pages full of Sony hatred by now.

I hate rumors like this. It makes people who own the product kind of depressed that they might get jipped and people who were thinking of buying the product have second thoughts because there might be a better version coming out soon.

that is probably very true. Parts of this forum do seem to be a bit one sided.. but it did start as a nVida fan site, so there was some bias built in there.

Its hard to tell if the needing a new version is true or not, and the reasons why. The HDCP reason seems to me a very good one to me. If that is the case, not having the HDMI @ launch has really hurt the current version of the 360's longevity in some addition uses areas (HD-DVD add on and not this IPTV piece)
