..and of course the hard drive is still proprietary - that's one thing I wish Microsoft would abandon, but we all know that isn't going to happen anytime soon. Oh well, at least it's 250GB - not bad for game installs and game saves.
having a bluray player and a more capable media center would be huge selling features for the 360,
although I haven't tried to use my 360 as a media center for steaming and watching saved movies/shows since I got my PS3,
I remember it to be quite lacking in comparison,
I'm moving to a much larger place and I was planning on buying at least 1 maybe 2 more PS3's to use strictly as media centers for different rooms, they are so cheap and user friendly media centers, my wife uses my current ps3 far more than I do
with wireless n, a 360 might be in contention, but having the blu ray I'll probably be giving my money to sony,
360 still is and will always be my main gaming system until the next gen of consoles comes out,
I could see a "new" 360 making its way in place of my current 360 anyway,
probably when kinect comes out
looking around "old" elites can be had pretty cheap now with a couple of games
Anyone upgrade from an older 360 to the new Slim?
I'm probably going to do it, but want to ensure I can transfer my data from my old 250GB to the new Slim.
I have the transfer kit, but if I'm not mistaken, the new drive is connected to the USB cable while the old one is supposed to be docked on the system, but that obviously can't be done on the Slim.
Thanks to the recent changes with firmware when they added USB Storage capability it's now very easy to transfer your data. Simply plug your old HDD into the transfer cable and plug the cable into a USB port on your Xbox. A prompt will come up when you boot your Xbox and you can then perform the transfer....now transfer disc required as in the old days.
After that's all done you'll have to migrate your conent licenses:
@the hawk, I saw that post, but his was opposite, the 20GB was docked in his console, and the new 250GB was on USB. For me, the old 250GB will be on USB and the new 250GB will be docked, that's why I'm concerned.
