5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful review August 23, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
By the title, I mean no offense to other reviewers, but when I was looking to purchase a new console, there was several questions not answered in the reviews. So, hopefully this can help someone, maybe a parent looking to buy for their child, a new console.

You can glance at my reviews and see that I'm completely lost in the last generation. I've held onto my PS2 like it was my security blanket. I'm not completely impressed with the current generation consoles trying to sell me on things that have no interest to me. I don't care about a DVD player of any kind. Blu-Ray, HD, phooey, I'm here for the games. Don't care about the online games. I go back to the Sega Dreamcast era of online console gaming. I remember the countless hours spent on dial-up access playing Phantasy Star Online. Of course, we dealt with the Gameshark modders that made weapons ten times better than any of us had found in the game, players who PK'd each other and stole your rare items. So, I have no interest, now in my 30s, to re-visit that frustration again.

I do however like the idea of downloadable content, especially the expansion pack type downloads, like with Grand Theft Auto IV. But, that's not of my concern for now. Once I saw the price drop below 200, I figured it was time to grab one of these and try it out for myself. The Red of Ring of Death isn't so much a concern to me either. I went through 6 Sega Dreamcasts and 4 PS2s. It isn't like this is the first console to have some problems.

Ok, I ordered this, this past week. The console I received has the Jasper in it. For those not in the know, not that I am really, it is just a codename for the chipset. Jasper currently is the newest one and is supposed to be more efficient and less likely to have technical problems.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is Jasper, hope it works. July 6, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
::EDIT; Even though this is still recorded for me as the version I purchased, and it has the "Newest" sticker, the descriptor no longer includes the 512MB line on it. I don't know if this means Amazon is recycling the older units in now for this order set, if they are doing that then that means my review cannot be relied upon and you may end up with a older chip. If they stick that 512MB label back on though then you are good to go.::


I am not going to go into the merits of a 360 ownership on this review. Rather this is geared for the gamer who has a orphaned HDD at home looking for a new 360 to be connected to, but they are afraid until they know they are going to get a Jasper.

After my fourth 360 died, this time out of warranty, I promised myself that I would never buy another one again while glaring hatefully at the number of games coming out in the next few months.

Friends had mentioned the mythical Jasper chip to me but due to the sentiment being that you are pretty much having a crap shoot on whether you would get one or not, no matter what SKU you ordered, I sat quietly and pined for a new form of entertainment.

Then I saw this product and knew everything would be safe for me to purchase it. Despite what some others are saying the 360 Arcade 512 MB version is always going to be a Jasper. Previous models had a smaller internal memory and you are stuck hoping that the model in the box was made after the Jasper date. With a 512 MB you are always getting a Jasper as that is what they are built with, there is no backlog.

One note , something that caused me to cry out in my office in fear as I opened the brown Amazon shipping box, is that the actual 360 packaging still says 256 MB on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars For the RRoD Xbox 360 owner August 9, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Picked up the Xbox 360 Arcade version from Walmart today after my original 06 Xbox 360 went down with it's 3rd RRoD last week! I already had many Xbox 360 games and I was at the point should I get the piece of garbage fixed again, or a playstation 3 and start over with games or get this new jasper chip Xbox 360 since I have a library of 360 games. Well with the Arcade version and the updated jasper chip I went with the new Arcade Xbox 360. MS had to do something because I and all the other RRoD owners weren't going to fork over dough to get the same garbage again. This Arcade version with the Jasper chip I feel was definitely made and released for the RRoD (red Ring of Death) Xbox 360 owners.
I mean we already have all the extra stuff from our RRoD 360 system so just give us the console that won't die on us and that's what MS hopefully did.
It doesn't come with a Hard Drive but I used my HD from the RRoD Xbox 360 system and I install my HD before start up and it worked perfectly. It comes with a standard AV cable but if you are a previous RRoD owner you can use your Standard/HD cable, that is what I am using now.
It also has a HDMI port but you will need to purchase a HDMI cable if you want to use the HDMI so I'll get a cable later for it. It comes with a wireless controller so that is a $40 savings, you can't have too many controllers.
I gave this 4 stars because the DVD player still makes too much noise and the jasper chip has not been tested over time yet. But the Xbox 360 is great entertainment when working.
If you are in the market for your first Xbox 360 console then get the Arcade Version with the Jasper chip and buy a HD and other accessories for it.
