For those of you who aren't flipping back and forth between Spike TV and G4, The Xbox 360 Slim, a.k.a. Xbox Bandwagon, has been announced. Smaller, quieter, and overrated, the new Xbox has a 250 gig hard drive and built-in wifi. It's expected to release by the end of the week, but Microsoft has already shipped out a brand-fucking-new Bandwagon to the homes of everyone in attendence at the new console's reveal.

For some reason, I felt the need to be the person who posted this, so here it is. More details to come.



-Edit-

More details have come, all up in that ass.

The Bandwagon is going to be your only Xbox option soon, as the current 360 models have already been discontinued and only the new slim model will be produced from now on. The Arcade system has been dropped to $149, and the Elite system is now $249, so if you're looking to get a 360 on the cheap, do it now. bOnEs, I'm talking to you. Don't miss out on the Microsoft-y goodness.

I'm not going to rush out and get one, but I am going to by a black elite bundle when they get price slashed like a motherfucker.

It does look like hot sex though:

There aren't too many details regarding pricing at the moment, but I'll only buy one if my 360 breaks and it happens to be cheaper to buy a Bandwagon.

Pic added to first post. Thanks, Stoic.

No, I made that up. It seems appropriate.

Why did they take something that looked alright and then jump on it several times, then piss on it? If I can get my hands on a Bandwagon I'd actually be able to play online again... Only 4 years late guys, good going... :/

This kid at work has been bitching all afternoon after he just dropped about $375 on a new Elite (120GB HD) and the black wireless connector. He could have saved $75 by waiting half a month.

I love Microsoft, but this shit is way late getting out. Bandwagon is a very appropriate name, but not as good as "Itsaboutfuckingtime".

Did he know E3 was coming up? I wouldn't have bought a Micro$haft console leading up to any E3... Bandwagon and Itsaboutfuckingtime are both great names, and they're how I will refer to it from now on. Mood deciding which I use.

Not to mention it looks like they've screwed anyone wanting to upgrade on the HDD front... It doesn't look like the original HDD is going in there... Anyone know any different? I'm not following.

Might get one, because I don't already have one and I need a black one to match everything else I own. Guess this means I'm obligated to buy a Wii...

Xfire Identity: i said your mother!!



when the price drops to $150, i'll buy a 360... because i want to check out some of their library... but, i am not spending $300 for another system when i got one humming along right now... when the price is right, i'll buy it because, i want to see what all the fuss is about for a few of their games like mass effect, fable, alan wake, and left 4 dead...

no gears or halo... i already know what those are about... *yawn*...

i bought a gamecube near the end of its cycle because, i had to play some of the mario games, the zelda games, and of course the harvest moon games... something tells me i might do the same with the 360 in a couple years...

and they aren't calling it a xbox 360 slim... it's being dubbed as, "new xbox 360"...


--------------------



QUOTE (Massacre @ Mar 15 2011, 01:24 AM) *
Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

Gayness removed. Gears is awesome, Alan Wake is not. Halo is forever gay.

He is pretty new to videogaming. He doesn't NEED the newest Xbox, but he was pissed that he spent all that cash and could have gotten a "NEW" one if he was willing to wait.

I was wondering the same thing. Not that there is a need for a bigger HDD above 250GB, but if I am transferring to the Itsaboutfuckingtime, I want to make sure I can transfer my HDD contents.

I can make an old fat Xbox become slim.
Exactly how is my secret. I charge only $1 or €1 and give no warranty.

There are no connection ports for original 360 hard drives or memory cards, but a recent system update for the 360 allows flash drives to be used as memory cards, so with flash drives up to 32 gigs available, and 5 USB ports on the Bandwagon, you can transfer your data pretty quickly.

Arcade units will probably be $150 at Christmas.

Oh snap.

I like the new design. It would look like hot fuck with my HDTV. I don't think I'll be getting the Natal/Kinect, even though it would look tits too.

I like that the fan is on the top (or side, depending on how your setup is). There's a lot more space above my 360 than behind it.
