Actually I'm curious about this too. If it uses atleast a Sata II interface then SSD's must work.

nope only certain WD hard drives can be setup to work with a 360. Using the hddhackr app. If I were you i'd just go buy one w/ hdmi from gamestop for $99 and get a WD hard drive to use with it. I even have an extra HD connection piece (just the wire not the enclosure) that I will mail you if you paypal gift me the postage fee. So you'd get a 250gb console for around $160 lol.

Yea, I was almost tempted into buying another one when I saw the $150 pricetag on these on BF. But then again I only have multiple Xboxes in the house because I use them as extenders for Windows Media Center (I can actually get Xfinity PPV on these!)

I dont see anything wrong with consoles. I love my gt5 and mgs series. smile.gif

Ive even considered borrowing a xbox360 to play halo. Lol only because im not gonna buy a console for one game. I just feel that the pc gaming platform used to be best and still can be, for things other than racing titles.

I love GT5 with a passion. Someone on the YouTube actually claimed that people would not get more than 50 cars in the game, I have ~380...

I'm honestly still using my first gen Xenon with no problems yet tongue.gif But as I said earlier I don't stuff it in a closed entertainment center with other hot electronics and no air circulation. Nor do I leave it on all that long, especially these days when I don't game longer than2 hours at a time.

Same, I did replace the x clamp on mine though. ....

Confused as to how I'm "hit", considering I've had the same Xbox since the slim edition came out. I play both and like both. I just think it's stupid to refer to a group of people as idiots just because they decided to buy/like playing on console.
