Apparently, Microsoft has announced the new Red Xbox 360. To be released on March 13th (same day as RE5). It will include...

  • Resident Evil 5.
  • The Red Xbox 360 console.
  • Red controller.
  • Black headset.
  • 120GB HD.
  • HD Street Fighter for XBLA code.

I am thinking about buying it. To be honest, I'll be purchasing RE5 and have thought about a new 120GB hard drive. Not sure what price point this model will go for, but I'll guess $400 considering that's the same as the elite, and this has pretty much the same value. Check it out!

how will you be able to tell if it has RROD now?

I think I'll stick with my black one. Personally I think the elite looks  better, I don't know, more natural, like it's how the console was designed to look. The red one looks like a black one with a coat of red. Although I am thinking about picking up a jasper... my elite should be back from getting repaired this week.

A sneaky way to hide the red ring methinks.

Hmm...looks cool, but I'm pretty sure I would start to dislike it after a few weeks.

I sense many jokes will arise from this red devil.

It will be hard to tell if your 360 has red-ringed with all that color there.

That photo looks like its photoshopped. And sadly thats not the truth. Red does not suit the 360.

#12 Posted by LiveOrDie1212 (926 posts) -

yeah, i don't think they should have a RED console considering what is going on lately.

#13 Posted by LiquidPrince (16181 posts) -

Why red?

#14 Posted by jakob187 (21762 posts) -

I don't like it.  I still think the Elite and the regular ones look the best.

#15 Posted by Bucketdeth (8048 posts) -

So this is pretty much Capcom edition, I liked black better.

#16 Posted by TeflonBilly (4713 posts) -

Somebody at Microsoft has a sick sense of either humor or irony by choosing that color.
Looks terrible though.

Better dead than red!

In the 360's case, those are synonymous.
#18 Posted by pirate_republic (1117 posts) -

Well it's not as bad as the Halo edition.

#19 Posted by ArchScabby (5809 posts) -

wow, of all the colors they could have chosen you think they would have stayed away from red.
Did they forgot the RROD is the color RED?

#20 Posted by ImpendingFoil (555 posts) -

I actually like the Red 360 and if I didn't already have one I probably would have bought that one.

Of course I actually liked the Halo one as well.

#21 Edited by Tuggah (1073 posts) -

Terrible. It looks bad and it probably is just eh elite spray painted red.

NICE!

It has a lot of great things included, but I am not going to get this, especially since I already have a 360. Still, red is a bad color to make the next Xbox 360 model. Seriously, RROD is on everybody's mind.
#23 Posted by JoelTGM (5596 posts) -

That's one of those things where the only reason you would even consider allowing that in your house is because it looks different, but then you realize it looks like crap.

#24 Posted by Karmum (11519 posts) -

Not a big fan of it, I thought they would have ran away with this opportunity. I dunno, making it more zombie-appealing with some kind of design.

#26 Posted by WilliamRLBaker (4779 posts) -

Seems kind of silly and bland.
Its just red and thats it why not give us a sytlized graphic of the residentevil/biohazard eye with the rip light 5 going through on the side...its just red how lame.

#27 Posted by Karmum (11519 posts) -

To be honest, if I did not have an Xbox 360 yet and wanted to pick up both RE5 and the 360, I would buy the console and use the redemptions and keep the HDD and sell the controller and Xbox 360 on eBay. You probably could make a few extra bucks because some sucker will think this a super limited edition thing going on.

I like that it comes with RE5 AND SSFIITHDR.

That console looks awful in that color.

Most definitely, and I absolutely think that Capcom and Microsoft should look at your idea for the RE5 graphic.  That would look P I M P!

The red is kind of ugly

#41 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

I want this solely because my favorite color is red and I think the console look beautiful, not to mention I could really use a bigger HDD and a second red controller would be nice.

True I have seen the red controllers there really nice, I think this would be sweet. Too bad I already got my Elite, maybe when I RROD again...haha
#43 Posted by RandomHero666 (3184 posts) -

Ill admit that is pretty damn sexy, but a waste.
A red elite can become as easy as spraying an elite.. umm... red, i did it, looks awesome, but stupidly i also sprayed the controller shell.

#44 Posted by Red (5994 posts) -

Hey, if I cared about RE5, and I didn't have a 360: I'd probably get this.


BECAUSE MY USER NAME IS RED!

GET IT????

#45 Posted by wefwefasdf (6729 posts) -

Oh god! I think I saw the sun! I'm blind!

#46 Posted by Peacemaker (1106 posts) -

I think it's a good option if you are in the market for a 360, it's like getting an elite with SSF2 and RE5 for free.  I'm to sure if I like the console color though.  I actually think that the box for the console looks really cool. 

#47 Posted by Kush (8889 posts) -

I still can't get over how pretty this X360 looks, but I don't know if I can justify a $400 purchase when I already have a working 360 (though I could sell this one)...what to do, what to do?

#48 Posted by Captain_Fookup (1519 posts) -

Pretty good bundle for Resident Evil fans who haven't taken the plunge into Xbox 360 gaming yet. Not really for me, if it had a badass Resident Evil skin I'd buy it.

#49 Posted by Daniel_Newton (1166 posts) -

Reminds me of the Spider-Man PSP, same colours and just as ugly.

#50 Posted by RichardLOlson (1852 posts) -
I would think about getting it, but the red is just to bland for me.  Somthing different in the way of color, but I think it would be trying to hide the red ring of death and thats just not cool folks.
