That's old news (it's from 4 weeks ago), and a planted picture by Microsoft. That is not what the Xbox 360 will look like (well, I'm 99% sure that is not what it will look like).

If anything, this is what the Xbox 360 will most likely look like (right under our noses all along):

Yeah, but I think the Xbox 360 is going to be a little bit bigger! ;D

On a sidenote, if you ever get a chance make sure to visit the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. I went a few years ago and it was freaking amazing. The coolest part is that they have an actual Saturn V rocket on its side in the museum portion. You can not comprehend the size of this thing. It's as tall as a 40-story building! Amazing.

Oh yeah, and that thing you have a picture of? The Walker I believe it's called, again, you can't believe the size of this thing. Everything there is just insanely huge.

Oh yeah, and I posted what many believe is the actual design of the Xbox 360...

Looks nice, considering i'm hopefully going to get one.  Steve, what price do you reckon we can expect it to be at first?  What is the usual?  I'd just like to know how much i'll potentially have to put aside for one.  Cheers.

Where does the "360" come from?

X-Box was originally $550 CAD I think? Eww....Gamecube was originally 300 or 350 CAD...I'm guessing X-box 360 will be between 300-450 CAD. I could be totally wrong though. My suggestion is don't get it for x-mas if it comes out before or wait for the ps3 to come out and get 360 then.

I would expect the price to be the usual starting price of whatever that is. Isn't it $200 or $250 or something like that? I never have bought a console when it was brand spanking new, so I don't remember. I do know that the design I posted would be upwards of a couple billion, but at least you can take it anywhere you want, provided you have the patience for it to get there.

Kennedy Space Center IS very awesome, I live in Florida so I suppose I could go there right now, but it is pretty late, and I've been there before, so I'm not sure about that. I was definitely impressed with the Saturn V rocket, and when I realized the fact that that's the rough size of the mechs in Armored Core, I gained a whole new appreciation for the size of those things.

No idea. Figure the "basic" version (without hard drive and backwards compatibility) will probably be around $249-$299. The deluxe version with the hard drive and other stuff will be around $100 more than the basic version. This is just a guess but the original Xbox price (and PS2 price) was $299 when they first came out so it is reasonable to guess that the Xbox 360 will start around the same price.

Ah, i see.  I listened to the podcast #9, and still don't know what you mean by backwards compatibility - do you mean that the console can play games from the previous console if it has it?  Also, what's so significant about a hard drive for your Xbox?  Why can't one just buy a memory card?
