Btw, you don't get headset or HDD included with the 4GB Slim and it has a cheaper look (not glossy.)

So get the 250GB if you're planning on buying.

It should be like this. You can get a black XBox 360 slim in either matte or glossy. 'Fat' consoles aren't made anymore, but you can probably still pick them up depending on the quantity moved through your locale.

The slims are fantastic. The rrod has been fixed and they are so so quiet (shhh ). I would grab one.

Buy the one with the 250GB HDD.

And if you really want 2k and Mortal.............buy it.

You can get "fat" consoles pre-owned for pretty cheap http://www.gamestop.com/browse/conso...av=1385-50-17a
That should be a pretty safe choice if you want one of the fat ones.

The slim ones are doing much better in terms of failure rate. From what I've gathered, the failure rate is down to the normal percentage for consumer electronics.

At this point, concern of failure should not be preventing you from getting a 360. If you want the console, go for it. Statistically, you'll be fine.

My jasper is turning 3 soon (I haven't used it much until last year though) and its still running strong. I did a few mods though to ensure that I don't get the RRoD for the third time
