Xbox 360 Elite to debut in North America on Sunday RRS feed

  • Question

  • Microsoft's Xbox 360 Elite version will be making its debut in North American markets on Sunday. Gamers will be able to buy the console for $479.99.

    The Xbox 360 Elite is fitted with a 120 GB hard disk space along with High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), HDMI and component video cables, Xbox Live headset and a wireless game controller. Gamers who purchase the console will also be provided with an Xbox Live Silver Membership as well as a one-month subscription to Xbox Live Gold Membership.

    Gamers will also be able to download High-Definition movies and TV shows as well as store Xbox Live Arcade games and MP3 songs. However the new version is not without its fault though. Microsoft has still not found a solution for the noisy CD drive and cooling fan. Gamers and analysts alike have criticized the non-availability of a built-in wireless network.

    Microsoft has already announced that those who wish to upgrade their existing 20GB hard disk capacity to 120GB can do so at a price of $179.99.
