As a guy who uses headphones all the time, I have no idea what you're talking about. "
 

 
Really? I started noticing it just before E3. When the volume peaks a certain way, I hear horrific crackling. Even turning my volume down doesn't seem to help. I can still hear the crackling (though obviously, at a reduced volume). It doesn't happen in any other GiantBomb video except ones where Ryan is using his handheld camera. Opening it up the audio in Goldwave, these are the parts I hear the crackling the most:
 


That is during time 0:30-0:36. Usually during volume spikes, and it seems primarily through the left speaker. I'm wearing a set of decent Sennheiser headphones so I would think I'd be getting good sound quality out of them, and it only started happening in the last couple weeks or so (and again, only on these very specific GiantBomb videos with Ryan and his handheld camera). It made a couple E3 videos almost unwatchable for me. Plus, if it was my headphones, one would expect I could eliminate the effect by turning the volume down - but that is definitely not the case. The crackling sound definitely gets quieter with the rest of the audio when I turn the volume down, but it never goes away.

It looks a lot like my Sharp Aquos, particularly the input switching

This makes me just want to wait until they release a core slim system, then. I don't need wi-fi (I prefer wired connections) and definitely don't need a hard drive (a 16GB flash drive will do me just fine), so I guess waiting to see if they release a core version by the holidays will save me at least $100.

" i wonder if the old wireless adapter is compatible "
 
MS said during E3 that if you need better reception you can just use the old external adapter.
 
One difference - which has been driving me fucking nuts today - is that the external adapter supported 5 Ghz networks IIRC, whereas the internal wifi only supports 2.4 GHz.
 
As I have just found out after an hour or two of connection hassles.

The EXTREME close up of Will was the most terrifying thing I've ever seen.

They should have gone to the Memory screen from System Info with the hard drive out.  They might have seen something which I don't believe I've heard people talk about. 
 
I think the new XBoxes all have internal memory units with a few gigs of space on them.  Any one seen this?

And the iPad is MUCH more expensive. "
If anything he could say that the 360 was rare, but thought "nah forget it, yo homes to Bel-Air!". "
Hahahaha this comment is win.
