When word got out that an HDMI-enabled, ebony-cased version of the Xbox 360 would arrive this spring, nerdgasms radiated across the Intertubes. But aside from

Xbox 360 Elite


With worldwide sales tallying over 10 million units since its release a year an a half ago, Microsoft's Xbox 360 platform is poised to overtake its predecessor. Already, the adoption rate of Microsoft's online gaming/media service, Xbox Live, has...

Elegant design looks stylish in most entertainment setups. Extensive digital media capabilities. Excellent games library. Robust online community. Powerful 3D graphics.

Like the original Xbox 360, the Elite generates a considerable amount of noise and heat. Console still lacks internal Wi-Fi. Power supply is way too bulky. No internal high-definition optical drive.

Even though the Xbox 360 Elite won't sway current owners to upgrade, its impressive feature set and strong online community make it the high-powered console to own.

Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite (120GB) review: Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite (120GB)


Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite (120GB)

Excellent selection of games, including many 360-only exclusives; all games are in native high-definition; user-friendly Dashboard interface; supports wireless controllers and accessories; Xbox Live service offers online multiplayer (with matchmaking...

The Elite fails to correct most of the annoyances of the original 360 version: the noisy DVD drive and cooling fan; a gigantic, oversize power supply; no built-in wireless networking; only three USB ports; a substandard DVD player; online gaming...

While it's neither a must-have upgrade for existing 360 owners nor as feature-packed as the PS3, the Xbox 360 Elite's combination of top-notch gaming and digital media features make it the current game console of choice.

Ultimate AV: Xbox 360 Elite and HD DVD Add-On Drive

Xbox 360 Elite


The Xbox 360 Elite has arrived. Microsoft has slapped a fresh coat of paint on the 360, increased its storage capacity, and added an HDMI hookup. Is it enough to warrant an upgrade?

HDMI makes 1080p possible without a VGA connection, Great suite of cables and connection options, Black is the new... black, Large storage is a refreshing change from the claustrophobic 20GB drive, Upscaling DVDs via HDMI is a nice touch

Black is also the old black, HDMI uses old 1.2 spec, not 1.3, No transfer cable unless you buy the standalone drive
