    There is more to it.

    Noclue, what are you waiting for?

    We've been LIVE on those forums since early in the morning (late at night on the east coast).

    The plug and play kit is only $20.

    I know Costco had a great deal (I picked this one up).

    Console (with the HDD, wireless controller, headset and DVD remote)
    Additional Wireless Controller
    Plug and Play Kit
    Project Gotham Racing 3

    What I paid $479 (before tax and S&H)...what it would cost if you bought all that seperate: $530.  Cheapest bundle I have seen, and it is still GOOD.Smiley

    If you want to be a developer for the console, contact people like Larry (he has a blog).

    Anando, you make me jelous with your tablet.

    kishoret , care to expand on that?  I dont know what you mean.
  • Larry Hryb - First look at Xbox 360 (with the MVPs)

    Sorry about that rchildress, my mistake.

    The "Plug and Play kit" (what recharged the wireless controller) does not come in the $399 version.  With the $399 version you get the wireless controller, but the battery pack houses 2 AA batteries.  When you purchase the "Plug and Play kit", you get a recharable battery and the cord that connects it to the Xbox360.

    They werent fed up.  The video was about Larry showing Scoble and Channel 9 the console.

    In due time, you guys will all be able to see everything.

    Oh, god, is Goverland posing an an MVP again? hhehehehehehe.
  • Larry Hryb - Showing off to the MVPs

    It is good, and will get better in the next couple of days.
  • Jeff Henshaw and David Alles - Xbox 360 and Media Center: Living room of the future

    Xbox360 will be able to have MP3s and such streamed to it via ANY Xp Machine.  All you need to do is run Windows Media Connect 2.0 on an XP machine and you can stream audio and pictures.

    I would assume that if the PC supports the DVD changer that the media streamed to the Xbox360 will still be able to be played.

    The Xbox360 already has a detachable hard drive, that has said could have large units (storage space-wise) later in console life.

    You can connect external storage devices, but ill have to look up what can be streamed off of it.  My understanding is that you can stream music (that is can defintly say), but it can NOT be copyright protected, and stream pictures.  I am unsure about videos.
  • Larry Hryb - First look at Xbox 360 (with the MVPs)

    Well...I help the community and have an MVP award.  So, it really doesnt matter to me.
  • Larry Hryb - First look at Xbox 360 (with the MVPs)

    No, I was rewarded the MVP award for helping in the community.  Is a Windows XP MVP (which we actually have one) going to tell you to download a pirated copy?  No.
  • Larry Hryb - First look at Xbox 360 (with the MVPs)

    So that was a basic thing.

    But, now, with you replacing that stuff in yoru Xbox console, you are at risk of having the console being deemed as "modified" and it being banned from the Xbox Live service.

    We advise against that, and to have certified Microsoft technicians fix it.  I would show you more support that we give, but we currently closed down the forums due to the MASSIVE upgrade.

  • Larry Hryb - First look at Xbox 360 (with the MVPs)

    Zippy, if you purchase the Xbox360 (not the core) for $399 you get the console, 20gb HDD, Xbox Live headset (360 version), a wireless controller and a DVD remote.  The DVD remote is about 1/2 the size of the remote that larry showed in the video.  He showed off the universal remote.

    Wireless is the next thing in console gaming.  All major parties (Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo) are all going to way of wireless.

    rchildress, when did it disintegrates to "OMG...."?  Are you talking about the video?  This is kinda different than a regular microsoft product.  (This is my take on it).  You look at VB, or Office, or Windows, and yes they have competition and they ARE good products...but who are they aimed at?  More business like people.  There is big energy in the gaming field.  Look at the E3 Expo.  Ever go into one?  It is FULL of energy.  Not only that, this stuff that Larry was showing off will blow sony away.  Sony has been trash-talking the Xbox360 from day 1.  The product group, and the MVPs have alot of energy built up that was not allowed to be shown...yet.

    Smidley- The $399 version of the Xbox360 console comes with a set of cables that does both high-def and standard definition.  On the bundle of cables you get your composite (yellow) and component (red/green/blue) cables.  On that same bundle you get composite audio (red/white) and the ability to do optical audio (for 5.1.  Additional equipment required).

    An interview with a Bungie dev?  Those things are hard to come by.
