Edition: Elite 120GB Fall 2009
Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
