  • Excerpt: It’s finally here. The fabled Xbox 360 Elite that’s been abuzz for far longer than it ever should have been… not that we weren’t monitoring it for you. It comes loaded to the teeth and shows the folks at Sony exactly how business is done by including high quality cables and components for full connectivity.

  • Excerpt: In the video-game business, the stakes are high. So, the Big Three have detailed road maps and five-year plans. A new console usually remains unchanged for at least a few Christmases, save for possible software updates and minor technical variations. However, this isn't the case with the Xbox 360. After only a record 17 months in its original incarnation, it has transformed into the Xbox 360 Elite, with two noteworthy hardware upgrades plus a fresh style.

Xbox 360 Elite Review

9 May 2007
  • Conclusion: The Xbox 360 Elite is a solid system worth owning, but only if you can take advantage of its features – and if you do not currently own an Xbox 360 system. If you currently have an Xbox 360 , then you will want to pass on the upgrade as there are only a few minimal gains. The addition of the HDMI port and larger hard drive are nice, but in order to be a true next-gen system, we would have liked to have seen integrated Wi-Fi and HD DVD player.
  • Pros: Large 120GB hard drive; HDMI output; includes HDMI and component cables
  • Cons: No integrated Wi-Fi or HD DVD player; DVD drive is still loud during movie playback

Latest Xbox 360 brings nothing new to the table

CNET
2 August 2013
  • Summary: The Xbox 360 remains a great video and gaming console, but fans will be better served by older 360 bundles -- or waiting for the Xbox One.
  • Pros: The Xbox 360 E delivers a fantastic library of media and games, along with slightly quieter operation than the previous 360 model.
  • Cons: The 360 E loses the optical audio output found on previous Xbox models; lacks a Blu-ray drive; requires annual Xbox Live Gold subscription for nearly all online gaming and entertainment apps; older 360 hardware/software bundles remain a better value. The newer Xbox One is just around the corner.

  • Excerpt: Microsoft's Xbox 360 Elite is here, and this version of the sleek game console offers more than just cosmetic improvements. The unit's bolstered specs - such as a 120GB hard disk drive and an HDMI 1.2 connector, perfect for today's high-def TVs - mean more room to store digital content, and a better way to view high-definition content.
