I think us current 360 owners should get a trade in credit fo rthe new one. Im thinking like 60% of the cost is covered with the trade in and we only pay 40%. That would put it in the realm of the Wii if I am notmistaken.
If it worked out like that, then I would do it for sure. I wouldn't see a reason not to do it.

As long as the newer version has an HDMI port as well as a larger HDD I’ll be happy and willing to buy it. I’ll just trade in my xbox360 and HDD player and pay the difference with the new.

Not like I’ll be losing any money I got the Xbox as a present when it first came out.

some of us others would be though. I like the trade in credit, sell the traded in systems for a reduced amount and still make a kiling.

If the newer version of the Xbox is that expensive I assume it would also play HD DVD’s. I mean, it be pretty stupid to only add on an HDMI port as well as a larger HDD and be that expensive. I’m sure it will have something else in it.

Maybe the fixed the overheating issues, that would be well worth the extra price.:laugh:

I don't think it will......because then they would be essentially be losing $$$ on their external HD-DVD player. But with the HDMI comes a better picture/movie-watching-experience if you are using such an external player :ohwell:
