Xbox 360 Elite System Top Five Reasons To Not Be Excited

Top five reasons why I’m not excited about the new Xbox 360 Elite:
5) No built in wireless. You still have to shell out another $99 for the wireless adapter.
4) Only supports HDMI 1.2, not the newer 1.3 standard. This means no Dolby Digital or True HD support.
3) There are numerous issues with transferring data from one drive to the other.
2) No HD-DVD support. This means you have to pay yet another $199 to get high def movies on your big screen. It also smacks of doubt over the format, as if to concede that BluRay has already won. (Which it hasn’t yet.)
1) My PS3 is already black.

    who has the hardware to support uncompressed PCM and the full spectrum of colors offered by HDMI 1.3? Unless you have an arm and a leg to blow on an audio system and a 1080p HDTV, you will not be able to enjoy those fine full quality audio/video features. Only the PS3 has the HDMI 1.3, but then again, who has the hardware? Also, so far, only Blu-Ray support all this. No games whatsoever are using those high-quality features and will probably not for the next 5-10 years. Some people are bitching about the lack of 1.3 support on the Xbox 360 Elite, but reeeally, those people are bitching for absolutely nothing because not even the HD DVD drive even supports it. So we’ed be running the 1.3 cable for absolutely no reason!
    So now you can rewrite your post and fix ur mistakes πŸ™‚
