Massacre
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:

Massacre
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.
PabloHoneyOle
Is it really called the Bandwagon?
Massacre
No, I made that up. It seems appropriate.
asthenia
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... :/
PabloHoneyOle
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".
asthenia
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.

It really is an odd fucking shape.
asthenia
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.
Heartless
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...
bOnEs
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"...

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.

They're $150 now.

Updated the first post, forgot to say that I updated it.

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.
Massacre
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.

but i thought you couldn't save stuff to the HD on those units... i might be willing to check out xbox live at some point for a few months and possibly download a game or two as well... but, this idea is still a ways away laugh.gif... there's current and future games left yet to buy...

New HDD.

That new Xbox looks totally slutty. I like the looks of it.

Ex-PS Fanboy
I know I sound like a Fanboy, *Stares at audience* but... way to jump on the Sony bandwagon Microsoft...
asthenia
Being a lover of both consoles (admittedly preferring the PS3, but that may be simple cause I have always been able to get online with it, and the better controller), how'd the jump on the bandwagon? By upgrading it? It had to happen at some point. They still don't have a solution to High Def movies though.. and no iPlayer (for us brits), and no larger disk size yet...

Ps, just so I don't sound like I'm startin' shit - I love you Pickles.
Massacre
How is the PS3 controller better? I think it's too small, it makes my fingers cramp up during lengthy play sessions. The 360 controller feels better to me, but I don't have Ast's dainty little lady hands.
demon
I didn't know the Xbox gamepad was larger. My fingers are long but I have no problems with Sony Dualshock 2. And I like that it is symetric; the two joysticks are where my thumbs are. The Xbox looks weird and I guess they did so just to look different from Sony's Dualshock.

If ever I say something is better just take it as my opinion - it's a well known fact that the 360 controller is the preferred. Even if it is a lump.

And my hands are a fair size, thankyou! v.gif
Massacre
Barely. Your fisting efforts are pathetic. Or maybe I have arthritis and it just seems like the PS3 controller is causing the cramping.
asthenia
My fists are like trucks. OT though, the DS3 doesn't cause me any cramp and I play on a good play session up to 8 hours. I like that my hands fit it well. Plus you have to admit the D-Pad pisses all over the 360 controllers. I could never ever get it to click on the first try, unless I mashed it.
Massacre
The 360's D-Pad sucks, I'll admit that. I like the placement on the controller better, though.
asthenia
I don't disagree on the controller placement, but I don't exactly agree either. Whenever I swap between the 360's controller and the DualShock 3 I don't even notice the difference. They're both really sound designs.
bOnEs
it's true, there is a reason why all the big sports guys play games on the 360... the playstation remote is just too damn small for bigger people... even the 360 remotes look small in their hands... so, there is a small part of the gaming community that just can't use the PS3 remotes due to their size...

for the rest of us average people, it fits like a glove biggrin.gif...
demon
Is D-Pad something else than the standard Xbox controller?
asthenia
The D-Pad is the directional buttons on the left hand side of the controller.
DuffMan
Dell/Alienware fucked up with this design, it needs more neon...

That's a first. Also, I loved Ast first.
