After months of rumours and speculation, Microsoft have announced the Xbox 360 Elite.
The Xbox 360 Elite costs around $480 and it comes dressed in matte black with metallic details, has several improvements over its predecessor. It packs a roomy 120GB hard disk (up from 20GB), a High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), and a wireless controller. Like the previous version of the Xbox, the Xbox 360 Elite plays regular DVDs, stores music ripped from audio CDs or digital photos, and connects to a PC to enable digital content streaming.
Few bad things about XBOX 360 ELITE:
  • There is a noisy DVD drive and cooling fan.
  • A gigantic, oversize power supply.
  • No built-in wireless networking, only three USB ports.
  • To play next-gen HD DVD movies it requires a bulky external accessory.
  • Online gaming requires a paid subscription to Xbox Live.
  • And you cannot connect third-party accessories because of its proprietary wireless format limits.
It's not a must-have upgrade for existing 360 owners and it not as feature-packed as the PS3, however top-notch gaming and digital media features make it the current game console of choice.
