Tumbler, I think it makes life easier if you connect HDMI to the TV and optical to stereo/amp.

My samsung surround sound is supposed to pass through HDMI sound and vid - but it doesn't. So your example is what I do. Mute tv and optical out to samsung dealio.

Two reasons:
1) Warmer climate.
2) Gears 2 pretty much culminated in the end of civilization. They're short on pretty much everything, armor included.

Not sure why Engadget bemoaning the $20 cable when in the other vid they're saying you can just use any USB stick or even just do it via xbox live.

The vid also makes clear what the big diff is, other than wireless N. Big ass fan directly on the CPU, being directly fed by a big grill plus big grills on the top and bottom. It's looking close to a nice Micro PC setup now, much better than the very silly 2x40mm fans at the back ducting from the CPU.

I suspect also there's been a die shrink, since power pack is lighter. Probably the biggest deal to some people.

How about actually linking to Endgadget for the money shot http://www.engadget.com/2010/06/14/xbox-360-250gb-first-unboxing/

That video clip was very helpful in understanding what the big deal was. I kept seeing headlines that this was a slim version, or maybe that is coming as well? This new version doesn't look slim at all, it looks exactly the same. More USB ports on back, quieter fan, and internal WiFi. I thought the optical output was an odd choice since the system already comes with that adapter thing that has the optical audio out on it. You're already going to plug in that adapter if you're using something other than hdmi so that didn't make any sense.

Wireless N was exciting until I realized I'm on hard wires....so not really an improvement.

So whats with all the Gears characters sporting the 'Cole' look? They all ditched the shoulder pads and arm gear. I liked the old look better. These shots just make me think these guys should be loungin on a couch drinking beer.

Well worth linking to HardOCP for the "New Xbox 360 250GB Unboxing". One sentence and two pictures.

You can call support and get the transfer cable mailed to you for free.

Xbox 360 Arcade to eventually be replaced by $199 new Xbox 360; data transfer cable will be $20.

I don't understand the rip off this transfer stuff is for the xbox. Didn't they add usb support so you can actually use the wizard to move everything with a thumb drive now?
