  1. Microsoft has announced it will release a special edition Xbox 360 bundle this November packaging the company's long-awaited Kinect motion-sensing device with a copy of Kinect Adventures, a spare controller, and the 250GB version of its console for $399. Naturally, the console will be the new Slim model which finally includes built-in Wi-Fi capabilities and uses a 45nm SoC called "Vejle" that draws less power and produces less heat than the original 90nm CPU/GPU combo.

    If by HD you mean hard drive then no they are not. Microsoft went from one proprietary design to another but both still use a 2.5 inch drive so I'd assume you could still mod it. If you want to transfer data only way I know of is either using flash/external drivers or getting the transfer kit for the 360.

    Why are they releasing a new 360 with no Blu-Ray... is Microsoft just going to protest the format as long as they can? I'm not a Blu-Ray fan, but advertising your console as an "all media" machine is kinda BS if you don't keep up with the times. You have won many battles Microsoft, its your turn to sit down and live with it.

    As for the topic, I just don't care. I do many active things in my day so when I sit down to play games I want to actually sit down and relax.
