The box rocks! The accessories don't!

Excerpt: I was sooo excited to get this new Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Super Elite 250GB HDD Console. I was stoked, to say the least. I had saw that it came with 2 controllers, 2 microphones, transfer cable, the game, and a few other tid bits. Sadly, I opened the box, first thing I noticed was NO data transfer cable.No second mic either, and the one mic is colored white, not black to match the box.
The newer xbox 360 is a much better improvement to original

Excerpt: The xbox 360 has have major improvements since the original xbox especially now with the new Kinect that just came out. The xbox 360 is just like a computer the way it operates. The games available are also on the other 2 consoles Wii and PS3. SO whatever game you want to play most likely will be on all 3 gaming consoles.
Excerpt: When you buy this, you will be happy with the 250 GB hard drive to save so many game data. Built-in Wi-Fi that beats the pricey $100 Network Adapter for old models. But the bad thing is you still have to pay $60 to play on Xbox Live it's not free like PS3 or Wii. The Xbox 360 has a huge library of games you can buy but you have to drop $60 on a brand new game that's super pricey if you ask me. The most convenient idea is that for first time in 5 years it's QUIET!
Excerpt: The Xbox 360 is a smooth running console with one (major) problem: the fan. The fan is so small that the unit very easily overheats, causing major problems to the hard drive and memory. I would recommend that all users keep this product out where air can circulate around it freely to help with this problem. My Xbox has died 3 times with the dreaded "red lights of death.
Excerpt: While Xbox360 comes with a solid hardware, it is very closely tied to the crappy live services. Hence it is mostly underutilized. This Elite console comes with a 120gb hard drive. The price is not in comparison with what you get. Because a 1TB hard drive costs $60 on any rainy day. Paying $100 extra for the 120gb hard drive makes no sense. And I never understood the infatuation with color. Only Microsoft Elite consoles come in Black.
Excerpt: I've always prefered the Xbox systems to the Playstation, and this is no exception. This console base has far better games in my opinion, especially with the Halos. I find gameplay to be so much simpler with the Xbox 360 remote also. I've currently upgraded to the Xbox 360 Slim. If you're worried about the Red ring of death, don't be. I have played on several Xbox systems and played them into the ground.
Excerpt: So I own each and every system out there and I have many reserved opinions about this console. First let us start with the pros Pro: The game library and lists of what you can choose from is the best among all the sytems out there The online play is also the most stable and available in terms of being able to find matches, etc Graphics are nice on the console The fact that you can hook up externals to listen to music and watch videos is always a plus when it comes to...
Summary: The product offered is an elite xbox360 console SPRING 2010 with two games included. q I received an email stating the games were not the package but I'm getting a new xbox360 console but manufacture date 11/01/2009 which does not match the description of the product announcement. Although this new and works well, the product was not elected by me. For this reason I am not satisfied with the product thanks ...
Summary: This bundle is a pretty good choice. The 120 GB hard drive is great but this Xbox 360 elite bundle does not include HDMI or even the RGB video cable. Instead it has the basic yellow video cable with the red and white audio cables. It's kind of a bummer but not too bad. The games are great and the system works perfectly right out of the box.

Summary: I just recently bought the 360 Elite bundle with Halo 3 ODST and Forza 3. WHY IN GOD'S NAME DOES THIS SYSTEM COST SO MUCH!? Wireless adapter, Xbox Live Gold Card, Video games, oh my god this thing is expensive. I like it, but it just costs too much. I'm keeping it, but it's frustrating to be forced to purchase all of these unnecessary things! Maybe I'm just spoiled from the PS3, but I think the cost is a little much.
