Edition: Elite 120GB Fall 2009

Product Description

Xbox 360 Elite is the premier console package with a massive hard drive, a high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) port, a high-definition cable, and a premium black finish for the console.

Xbox 360 sets a new pace for digital entertainment. More than just a cutting-edge game system, Xbox 360 also integrates high-definition video, DVD movie playback, digital music, photos, and online connectivity into one sleek, small tower.

Under the Hood

Xbox 360 with wireless controller
Xbox 360, shown with wireless controller, is a sleek, customizable gaming and entertainment system
Xbox 360 is much smaller than its predecessor--it measures approximately 3.3 by 12.2 by 10.2 inches and weighs 7.7 lbs. It's powered by custom IBM PowerPC-based CPU with three symmetrical cores each running at 3.2 GHz. It also carries a custom ATI graphics processor 10 MB of embedded DRAM. This is powerful enough to draw 500 million triangles per second. In other words, it makes for great looking games in standard TV definition, and even better thanks to built-in support for HDTV 1080i televisions. It also supports the widescreen 16:9 format.

The unit has a 12x dual-layer DVD-ROM drive, which plays both the game media and progressive-scan DVD movies right out of the box. For game-save and media storage this console package includes a 120GB hard drive. Along with storing files, the hard drive will make the Xbox 360 backward-compatible with part of the existing Xbox game library.

Control your Gameplay

Xbox 360 uses a refined button layout for its controllers. Back and Start buttons sit at the center of the controller and between them is a new Xbox Guide button, which instantly takes the user to the Xbox 360 user interface. From there, they can check for friends online, access personal digital content like photos and songs, and more. The black and white buttons of the first Xbox controllers have been replaced with new shoulder buttons placed above the left and right triggers. Xbox 360 can accommodate up to four wireless controllers and has three USB 2.0 slots to use for wired controllers or for streaming your digital media from digital cameras, MP3 players, and any Windows XP-based PC. Microsoft has also created a video-conferencing camera, sold separately, that will work with the system.

The Media Experience

All Xbox 360 titles can be played in either standard or high-definition resolution in 16:9 widescreen, with anti-aliasing for smoother graphics. Game designers will be able to take advantage of the system's multi-channel surround sound. The Xbox 360's digital media allows users to supplement any game's music from tracks in their own personal library.

Go Live

A built-in Ethernet port allows users to connect their system to a broadband connection for access to the new Xbox Live Silver. The included service lets anyone create a Gamertag and gamer card to express your online identity, chat live with voice chat, and connect to the Xbox Live Marketplace to buy expansions, maps, and other digital items for your games. The subscription service Xbox Live Gold adds to that online competition, game stats, and video chat/messaging. The separately sold wireless adapter supports the common 802.11a, -b, and -g standards.

Edition: Elite 120GB Fall 2009
Just received my Fall 2009 Xbox Elite in today. It is a Jasper chip model; the power pack indicated 12.1 A (which I'm told is the telltale sign of the Jasper). I haven't gotten much of chance to play around with it yet, but thought it was important to let people know that they will be getting the newest chip. I wasn't sure when I made the purchase, so I hope this helps...

Also, I just wanted to state that the Elite model only includes standard A/V cables (red, white, yellow). I figured this was useful information. Though many people have stated that the Fall 2009 model did not have an HDMI cable, I assumed it included a component cable instead, which is does not. Not a big deal; just want to help people make informed purchases.

Edition: Elite 120GB Fall 2009
I really like the xbox 360, other than the 3 ring of death issues but want to increase my drive space then decided to upgrade to the elite console and let the kids have the pro in the living room. No need to go into details about what the system does so here are my gripes... 1) no transfer cable included... if you buy the 120g drive you get the transfer cable but you can't get the cable for free no longer... at one time M$ would send you one for free. 2) You no longer get the Component cable that has your optical connector, you get the cheaper Composite cable. Now if you want optical sound you have to buy the component cable OR the optical adapter. Starting to think I should have bought the PS3 slim. Thanks Micro$oft.

Edition: Elite 120GB Fall 2009
If you're in the market for a next-gen gaming system and can't quite decide between Sony's Playstation 3 or Microsoft's Xbox 360, then this review is specifically for you.

First, the good stuff. The Xbox 360 is immensely popular and has the largest library of triple-A games and exclusives. After all, you'll only find games like Gears of War, Halo and Grand Theft Auto on this system [retraction: GTA4 is not 360-exclusive, sorry]. The online community is beyond robust; Microsoft's Xbox Live service has completely revolutionized online gaming. Not only that but you can stream many TV shows and movies from Netflix right onto your television through the "New Xbox Live Experience" (NXE for short). Lastly, the hardware is no slouch either as several cross-platform titles actually have a slight edge in performance on the 360 over their PS3 counterparts (more on that later).

Okay, now the stuff the PS3 does better (and I'm allowed to say this as I've owned both consoles since launch). Remember the NXE I mentioned earlier? Perks aside, the interface is simply horrible. The NXE is a mess of redundant menus and even suffers from noticeable processor lag. The PS3 Media Bar, on the other hand, is clean, neat, and professional-looking, and has a slight advantage in functionality too (and it doesn't force you to create ridiculous avatars). The PS3 is also technically superior to the 360 in terms of processing power and video performance (but some games have an edge on the 360 due to early developmental difficulties on the PS3), and it exclusively uses a blu-ray drive for both games and movies alike, all at an extremely competitive price.

Edition: Elite 120GB Fall 2009
The Xbox 360 Elite is the most expensive variation of the console. It includes a 120 GB hard drive and a matte black finish. The Elite retail package also includes a controller and headset that match the system's black finish. The initial release price was US$479.99. Early Elite models shipped using the Zephyr motherboard (16.5A), though later models used the Falcon 65 nm chipset instead. These Elites (and other Xbox 360 models using the Falcon) can be identified from earlier versions by a re-designed power connector and a power supply that runs at 175w. As of 2009 Elite models using the Jasper chipset have become available; these are identified by a 12.1V power supply. Holiday 2008 consoles were bundled with Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures and Kung Fu Panda. The Elite's price tag was cut from $449 to $399 on September 4, 2008, and further reduced to $299 on August 28, 2009. However, the $299 package no longer includes games or an HDMI cable. You can get a HDMI cable for as little as $5 dollars on Amazon.

Zephyr 16.5A = original xbox 360's - 90nm processor, 90nm graphics processor
Falcon 14.2A = die shrunk processer 65nm processor, still 90nm graphics
Jasper 12.1A = die shrunk graphics and normal processer - 65nm process used for both processer and graphics processor. This new chip will consume less power and run cooler which should help alleviate the infamous Red Ring of Death problem.

>Xenos- this is the first version. The launch versions of xbox 360 core and pro came with this motherboard. This has no hdmi port. Failure rate around 33%.
>zephyr- this is also a first version. The launch models of xbox 360 elite came with this one. This included the hdmi port. But microsoft later put this motherboard with all xbox 360 models so all had hdmi port.

To start the 360 is an incredible machine that has many problems that people can avoid. For one of them is to always place supporters at the botttom of the console in the middle with out bolcking the ventilation system in which is one of the main reasons most people may expeiernce the Red Ring Of Death. i had my Xbox for 3 years and still runs like new with the help of my supporters i place at the bottom of the console. You can put any kind of supporter at the bottom it really dosent matter what it is, as long as it dosent block the ventiltion it ill run great.
