The Kinect bundle includes a 4GB flash based Xbox 360 'slim' w/o a hard drive.

On 1 hand it's better than the 256MB flash based 360 Arcade edition, on the other, there is no 250GB hard drive upgrade for the 'slim' edition xbox yet.

Will the Kinect bundle include the 250gb slim version? It didn't say in the Amazon description.

If they made a new 360 Slim w/o WiFi and something that's backwards compatible with the older hard drives I might bite.

I like my 120 GB hard drive (it's technically faster than the 250 GB version) & I use the 10/100/1000 connection so WiFi is useless to me.

Maybe a White (or different color) 360 Slim w/ 120 GB drive? Who knows, with the big games coming out in the Fall in Spring of 2011, there might be specialty 360 Slims bundled with Halo: Reach, Call of Duty: Black Ops or Gears of War 3 next year.

Thats right Tema. I dont think there is a need to buy one just to replace the one you have. It does have a slight better start up and the noise is really about the same if your are spinning a disk but most of us are now saving to harddrive and playing off that portion is quiet.

It's a good deal if I didn't already have the network adaptor then I would get it

also, do these new 360s already have the connection for the Kinect devise (for power) or is that something that will come out with the new ones when Kinect comes out?

i wasn't going to bother, but I saw a trade in deal and now I am thinking about it. I think the quiet factor is my big selling point. I don't think I need the huge HD, but I do know that I am stingy when downloading demos and stuff.
Gamestop has $100 toward an upgrade, plus $ for extras.
the way I figure it, it would coast about 100 to get the new one. My HD is only 20 I think (I can't seem to find that info anywhere)
I am wondering if there will be a Kinect bundle later? and if anyone will offer trade in deals then.
I was going to post to see what you thought of the trade in deal? think it sounds good? could I do better ebay or craiglist? should I just live with the noise?!
Has anyone seen any other trade up deals?

I just bought my Xbox, so I won't be buying a Slim. It doesn't really interest me anyway. Sure, the WiFi would have been nice, but I bought my adapter (which works great) and I don't need some massive hard drive. I am used to the loudness, so it doesn't really matter to me either; plus, most of my games play on disc so it doesn't even seem to apply.

I'm really tempted to get this one but people on NeoGAF have been reporting that the WiFi in the Xbox slim is not as good as the recently released USB WiFi adapter. I don't use WiFi so it doesn't matter to me but it may matter to people streaming movies via WiFi.

I'm a serious shopaholic but I won't be getting this one only because I already have two of the xbox's both with the 250 hd

Are you going to buy the new slim model. This new game system will be about 3 inches smaller with a 250 GB hard drive and runs more quietly if the disk is installed to the hard drive. The outside has a cool black finish like the PS3 and the removable hard drive is hidden in a compartment that can easily be removed like before. It will also include a Internal WiFi that is top of the line in the wireless terms.
