I'm sort of excited by this and kinda want to run out and get one ASAP even though I have no reason to.  However, the logical side of my braid says I should just wait for a bundle deal with Kinect because I'll probably buy that too (for better or worse).

Even though the power supply isn't built in, this is definitely a huge, huge upgrade.

I wish you'd asked if they'd done anything special with the d-pad on the crontroller.
Looked like it protruded slightly more.

That guy sure is obsessed with making the system "look more premium."  I wonder if he even realizes that he sounds like a complete douche or if he's been at Microsoft so long that he doesn't even notice.

That guy is one of the better PR guys i've seen at a trade event in a while.   He's relaxed, open and knowledable.   And GOD, does that new 360 look great.  The previous photos did not convey how nice it looks.

I want one, but I haven't even made the jump to an HD television yet.  One I do that, I'll take this into consideration... but this is fucking awesome, regardless.

I hate the way this guy uses the adjective premium. "We thought it looked more premium," "We wanted the logo to be more premium." Not a fan. This looks like a nice box though.

It's not massive at all and is really not that big of a deal.

"Listening to our customers on the features they want"... sure...
 
Also, why didn't Jeff or Brad ask if the HDD is a 2.5" or a custom Microsoft form factor?  I want the HDD to be upgradable like the PS3 damn it!

Oh man, now I gotta try to dig up my old HDD transfer cable when I got my 120.  I sure hope the SW is a free marketplace download if you already have the cable.

Reminds me of one of the launch PS3s.  Without the fatty bit obviously.  Seriously love that sleek gloss w/ chrome look.

I think you missed the part where they talked about spiffing up the controller to match the console.
