Ever wonder why Microsoft hasn't released an HDMI cable for the Xbox 360, or whether the AV port was really capable of digital out? Well, here's your answer: we landed pictures of what appears to be the second Xbox 360 -- the Xbox 360 v2, if you will -- codenamed Zephyr. (The original Xbox 360, if you recall, was codenamed Xenon.) The long rumored about and awaited update to the console won't just feature a new, cooler 65nm processor, it's also finally added an HDMI port for full digital 1080p pleasure, as well as a 120GB drive, just what the doctor ordered. The 120GB drive may or may not come bundled with the kit, we don't yet know, just as we also don't yet know how much a Zephyr 360 is going to run (we imagine it'll go for the same price as currently so they can keep up a little on their expanding margin). But our very kind Xbox insider seemed happy to let us know we'd be able to get them "soon."

I know its possible to connect your ipod to your xbox, but how do you copy music to the hard drive? I havent really looked into..

My computer is synced with my 360 wirelessly, so any music on my computer, I can listen to it through my 360 while I'm playing games. Same thing for viewing pictures and watching videos on my comp.

If this is true, I bet xbox360 won't sell alot these months till the v2 is out.

Too bad I just bought a 360 a couple of months ago. Microsoft should have a trade-in service, so all those with old, noisy 360īs could get the new one, if not for free, then for a small fee.

u know u can update the fans in the 360 for better cooling ones that put out less noise....

shit the 12 gigs i got on mine will last me forever..i dont upload shit to it...when i d/l a trailer or demo i delete after a few time viewing em
saving games takes up shit..so y 120 gigs or what ever ...also im sure u can get the new processor put in ur old 360 at a store or something when it comes out

I'm not that much of a fan of the 360, personally. I have an original X-Box, and that's enough for me. I'm glad I didn't get a 360 yet though, as it seems it will soon become out-dated. But I think Microsoft may be going a bit far with this v2 360.

Hmm nothing announced at CES 2007 yet. Might be a rumor after all.

Silfie

That may well be the case. Similar to as soon as FFVII was shown as a technical demo on the PS3 everyone was like 'OMG FFVII HIGH-RES!!!'. It didn't happen, and according to Square Enix, it isn't going to happen.

they better not do a FFVII re-make cos the amount of fans they'll probably loose would be a hell of a lot

Actually, all the fans I know want them to do a remake with better graphics.

well they better not

Silfie

If they do, it may turn out good. But there will always be old-school fans of the original. I mean sure, i'd love to play the game with Advent Children graphics, or better, but it could quite easily remove the playability.

Microsoft Throws Spanner into HDMI Rumour Mill
Pictures of upgraded 360 are just "experimentation".
by Rob Burman, IGN UK
UK, January 10, 2007 - Last week hearts and minds of 360 owners were sent fluttering into overdrive thanks to rumours of a revised console. A photograph purporting to be from a reliable source showed what some people had been silently dreaming about at night - a HDMI port and a bigger hard drive.

But like some kind of horrific monster that preys on children's thoughts, Microsoft's Christ Satchell has turned those dreams into nightmares. "At the moment, everything you might have seen is just looking at our experimentation back in Redmond, not really a product that we're thinking about announcing," he told Gamespot. We're now imagining scientists in lab coats pouring strangely coloured liquid from test tubes into the console's disc drive and waiting to see if it explodes.

Satchell also touched on the subject on the larger capacity hard drive - which has progressively increased in size in various rumours and now stands at 120GB. "As we produce these services, if we see an increase in pressure that's something that will be interesting to look at, but there isn't any announcement today about any new configuration that may or may not be happening," he added. Maybe if you go to Microsoft HQ and cry on the pavement outside it'll persuade Satchell a little bit more?

My Xbox 360 just crashed and the controller wont stop rumbling. At times like this I wish I had a vagina, but it's now giving me a full body massage with quite possibly a happy ending.

Has no one read the post saying that it's not going to be coming out anytime soon and it's just an experiment?

Silfie
01-11-2007, 07:09 AM
I did. I find it pointless to release it now though. If it's not going to happen, what's the point in getting everybody's hopes up for a new console that isn't as crap as the 360 at the moment?

By then, it should have amazing graphics. Although nothing can beat what Sony said about the PS3. "It can do graphics that are better than real life."

...Shot in the foot much? Nothing is better than real life, and I can't wait to see if Microsoft follows suit.

you can't compare sony to ms, it's supposedly harder for the programmers to use the software for the PS3 compared to the 360 so it's gonna be a while until the PS3 has decent graphics

Sony do make up a load of shit though (no I'm joining the recent Sony bashing trend I still like Sony) and even if we did have graphics like real life we'll probably be dead by then

and just to go off topic and because I can't be bothered to PM you, where bouts in Devon you from?

the thing is xbox is grabbing alot of great titles right now. ps used to own alot of great games that are now both ps and xb. the way playstation is handling it live setup is a major set back and the console has been over lapped since the original xbox came out after ps2. the thing is - playstations are just falling behind on everythink.

I'm in Exeter.

Playstation, and Sony in general, are running out of followers due to customer service problems, software and hardware setbacks, and so on. Microsoft has this too, but they've fixed some of it and are working on the rest.

ah, near where I used to live then

Hopefully Sony sort themselves out soon-ish cos I think they release some decent games but I don't think they're gonna have any exclusives anytime soon

Also It seems games dont run well in 1080 development on the PS3. They run better in 720. Motorstorm developer stated so in an interview I believe.
