Default new RROD_Box with 250gb soon



Now that the Xbox 360 Elite has officially dropped in price and killed off the Pro, it was only a matter of time before there'd be a new rumor to pin on Microsoft's console. Amazon Germany, who previously listed the PlayStation 3 Slim a good 20 days before the official debut (it still has the same Amazon Stock Identification Number as it did when leaked), has gone ahead and posted a new Xbox 360 model, ASIN in tow, with a 250GB HDD, two wireless controllers, and Forza Motorsport 3. Price is listed at 279 euros ($397), a good 30 euros over the current Elite price. No release date, but Forza 3 isn't due out until at least October 23rd so we'd say you got awhile to wait and see if this pans out. Any chance we can get a built-in WiFi adapter along with that extra storage space?

To add with this rumor- new one from Kotaku on an ad from South African retailer BT Games. Calling it Super XBOX 360 Elite. Kinda a silly name.

Probably. Microsoft should cut the price on HDD instead of coming up with new SKU. It's getting annoying.

Very annoying. This is a double edge sword. Sure they might shift a fair few units, but when people notice a new refresh coming out regularly they hold off buying and keep holding ff until towards the end of life, then people buy an older console when they are trying to get people excited for the new one.
