Can someone explain to me what the Xbox 360 slim is all about?


I’d like to know what stupid idea Microsoft has came up with now. They’re always up to no good, and I have a feeling this is going to be some sort of scam. There has to be more to it than just making a smaller xbox. Why are they doing this? What’s going to be different about it than the standard 360? I ‘m looking everywhere, and I can’t find much info about it.

    – Nearly silent when compared with the original 360.

    – Smaller with a slimmer look.

    – Built in wireless N and its fast.

    – Integrated optical audio.

    – 5 usb ports.

    – Works with most of the old accessories, including the transfer cable.

    New Xbox 360 Elite cons

    – The IR receiver is located lower on the console and appears to have a narrower field. So depending on setup using a remote maybe a headache. 

    – Only comes with standard def av cables. 

    – Does not use the old memory cards or hard drives. 

    – Touch sensitive buttons that when touch emit a soft tone. 

    – Kinect ready socket in the back.

  2. 1. Wi-Fi built in.

    2. 5 USB rather than 3.

    3. Valhalla chipset (45 nm integrated CPU-GPU).

    4. Redesigned vents.

  3. essentially, 6 years after the fact, microsoft is trying to build thier version of the PS3.

    250 gig HDD standard is pretty nice though.

  4. i bet they have just gotten a ton of complaints from consumers. so they made it smaller, better design so it’s quieter, and a built in wifi antenna so you dont have to buy a $100 adapter. also an internal 250 gb hard drive so ppl cant hack the hard drive as easly, and it is ready for their new feature kinect.

    rumors that i have heard is that it still has an over heating problem, and still hasnt fixed the problem of disks being scratched when the xbox gets moved.

  5. -built in wifi

    -built in kinect

    -no more loud noise

    -supposedly no Red ring


    -doesnt scratch your disc when moved

    But trust me you dont want to buy it because already reports of it having red ring well now its called red dot.

    it scratches discs

    so basically your wasting your munny for only 6 months worth of play time

    Have a good day 🙂

  6. I don’t think this is a stupid idea. It comes with a bigger HD(250 GB),its smaller, it has a smaller power brick(uses less power), it makes less heat, it makes less noise, and it comes with built in wifi. It’s also suppost to have fixed the RROD error, and all for the same effing price!! i wish i wuda waited to buy one

    Hey btw if you still read this there is no red dot or red ring of death!! The new xbox doesnt have red led lights anymore, theres no way for it to have red dot or RROD

    I need help with my question! No one answers me! 🙁

  7. I believe it’s just smaller, built-in Wi-Fi, built-in Kinect. Other than that, nothing is different. Pretty much like the PS3/PS3 Slim, PSP/PSP Slim etc.
