    Cool, so your mobo is the Jasper one then? I was one of those people that thought the new dash would be gay, but I really like it now :)

    its really good the dash isnt it, i mean it looks better and has a faster response
    the NXE while isnt a revolution is a welcome update

    the new xbox also seems to run things faster, like in pro evo soccer 2009 after you score a gaol you get a celebration and sometimes it would get slowdown now it dosnt

    at idle the console it virtually silent only a small noise but background noises can drown it out

    i think its a jasper but im not opening it i just guess since on joystiq they said most consoles after that date and with that nubmer would be jasper, 60gb are likely to be jasper too

    the hard drive installs are great too

    i have 1 game installed and thats cod4 and it took just over 6 gigs :eek:

    now i only have 5.8 gigs left which sucks but i have noticed a big difference in load times esp on 1st person and even multiplayer is really fast like 8 secs to load
     
    CDdude55 says thanks.

    yeah well i only have one game installed right now but i know its faster and since my console is cool and quite at idle its great, the game is pro evo and there is no loading from booting the game to the main menu and now there is faster between matches

    i wish theyd have proper installs tho like pc games do not just dumping a full disk to the hard drive

    the 60gb hard drive is kinda at an acceptable price now so if you want one pick it up it comes with a 3 month live and transfer cable that you can sell on ebay one went for £24 when i was looking for one, i just used my memory card to transfer saves and some themes, gamerpics

    Probably not, they more likely think 120GB is enough for the system.

    No point in 200GB i guess.

    NXE is kinda...meh. Not too excited for the features. I got lost in all the menus (I'll get used to it soon enough). Avatars are fun to play around with, but not too exciting. The whole "360 as a media center" idea is lost on my cos my PC is right next to it. Need moar games plox.

    Sounds dodgy to me m8.....a 60GB 360 HDD for £24 is just too cheap :mad: The 20GB ones make more than that on ebay :eek:

    left 4 dead is great with friends play it at the hardest mode and stay in places fanny about see what stuff you can do, i think later on they will bring out downloadable content for it more maps levels ect

    nah i meant if you buy the transfer cable it costs a lot on ebay one went for £24

    a 60gb HDD is like £60 or summit

    NXE has impressed me so far

    just got the pro evo 2009 update it added 4 new licensed and soem updated football kits teams one of which was atletheco madrid a very welcome addition

    I was all stoked for getting Left 4 Dead, and after watching some gameplay footage, I am left feeling like there's really nothing exciting for me in it. Does someone want to convince me otherwise?

    left for dead is great if you have mates and have a laugh with them, single player is just there to do something when your not online or waiting for your mates or to try get some more achievements

    going the zombie bosses is also cool just something different, goign bosses invlves a lot of tactics because you can die quickly so you need to team up even if your the tank its easy for 4 guys to gang up on you

    graphics are great and there is no slowdown at all
