Fan of XBox

I am a big fan of XBox and a regular user of it. I have bought XBox is 2009 online from [MOD EDIT] but that is a previous version I am using now many new versions are available in market but I am unable to buy because of some financial problems. I am wishing if I ever get a latest version of XBox. I just Wish :-)

What?

Well there's no difference between the versions other than some reliabilty issues but if yours works, then it's just as good for games as the rest.  There are only really two versions if you discount the elite as simply a marketing ploy with a hard drive as bait.  You can get the slim or the model with the curved sides which some people think is a nicer looking console, I don't.

XBOX 1 Elite consoles, have slightly different Firmware & you payed for the option etc... Console tuned for hardcore gaming etc...

The Firmware & system specs on the 360 slims, are also different between models too & are Designed/Tuned for a specific purpose...

4GB 360 Arcade for Arcade games on LIVE! & has 4GB Internal Flash Memory, 250/320GB LE Models, for full game installation & faster transfer rate, between system components etc...

..

The new Dashboard is installed to your storage device now & isn't cached anymore too...

..

There are Seperate standalone Hard Disk Drives for sale, In 250GB & 320GB capacities & you just open the tab, on the bottom of the console & slide in the HDD [Making sure SATA connector is snug...]

..

The console, might update itself, when you install the standalone HDD.. As the drive, might have preinstalled settings etc... You'll know, when you turn your console on & log on to XBOX Live!...

..

Note: Installing a Regular SATA 1TB HDD in the HDD bay, will void your XBOX warranty & get your new console banned from the XBOX LIVE! service..

[quote user="NanoTechSoldier"]XBOX 1 Elite consoles, have slightly different Firmware[/quote]All 360s have the same system firmware and software.

 

The only disinguishing feature of the original 2007 Elite was HDMI. As HDMI filtered into Arcade and Pro consoles later in the year, it was a very short-lived extra feature.[quote]The Firmware[/quote]Is the same across all consoles.[quote]& system specs on the 360 slims, are also different between models too & are Designed/Tuned for a specific purpose...[/quote]They're targetted at different audiences. All of them can be made equivalent with the exception of the internal flash storage modules on Arcade/4GB units and original MU support (dropped with Corona).[quote]for full game installation & faster transfer rate, between system components etc...[/quote]There's no difference between consoles in terms of performance. That's the point of a console.[quote]The new Dashboard is installed to your storage device now & isn't cached anymore too...[/quote]What does this even mean? The console firmware is not on the storage device. Starting with NXE, a storage device is required for connection to XBOX Live because the firmware doesn't hold everything required by Live (like Avatar components).[quote]The console, might update itself, when you install the standalone HDD..[/quote]The only reason a console would update itself is if it found a newer system update on a storage device.[quote]You'll know, when you turn your console on & log on to XBOX Live!...[/quote]No. System updates on storage devices are installed before any attempt to access Live is made. If a console gets an update from Live, that means Live was updated and the local storage devices don't have a copy of the update.[quote]Note: Installing a Regular SATA 1TB HDD in the HDD bay,[/quote]Won't work. Period.

Actually the Xbox new model has a very few different adjustments. The new Xbox has a better broadband modem that is designed specifically for WAN behaviors. Failure rate is still the same. Still has heat issues and still has numerous of freeze issues. By characteristics they are initially the same console, but the older console is a little bit more reliable for other reasons.

I was a Microsoft Fan... Until I made the mistake of buying the SurveyBox360.  Microsoft really is a shame... They force people to buy a device that sales private information and evenly turns around and forces those people to pay to be surveyed. It really aggravated me to getting all sorts of things Microsoft does to its community... All lined up and I've been blogging, posting alll ABOUT Microsoft habits. So now I am no longer a supporter of Xbox, nor Microsoft. I've been in and out of Microsoft community for over 10 years. I've known what they done and really use to not really mind, because I saw Microsoft as trying to put a computer infront of everyone. I ignored their data harvesting on PC... Ignored their private revenues of other's market -- Basically taking others ideas and using it as their own.  I made point to teach people about keeping private networks off the net. As well as other methods of keeping data integrity secure. FOR RELIABLE INDUSTRIES. Now, I do not favor anything with a Microsoft symbol. Their initial idea of giving people reliable computer is a hoax. Microsoft Windows is just am image they try to give for when people think about computers.  Evenly, right now... Microsoft is trying to ensure that systems that come pre-loaded with MSWindows, could not remove Windows and install another, secure OS. That wont happen though. Microsoft forces people to pay for that OS if it gets tampered with enough and the Product license goes invalid. It defeats the initial purpose of computing anyway.

Its just annoying. Microsoft is a USA product, but they steal... Scam... Take more from its customers... THAN ANY OTHER COMPANY. AT least now, you will have the option of turning off the backdoors in Windows 8. In XP - Windows 7 disableing Microsoft backdoors would make the system have numerous errors. Vista was discontinued because of several abilities to disable the Microsoft backdoors without messing with system stability. As Long as you don't use XP service pack 3... You will still have a secure OS and RELIABLE. Service pack3 of XP initializes background services(THAT NOT ONLY MADE THE SYSTEM SLOWER) but nabbed private information.

@ IceStorm III...

The 4GB Model, Has "4GB" Of "Onboard" Storage & The 250/320GB Models Have No Onboard Storage & Utilise A HDD... There Is A Slight Difference In Performance... Because, The Motherboard IS Different On The 4GB Models... They Have Different Optical Drives Too & Firmware Is Different On 4GB Models...

[(DG-16D4S) 9504, 0225, 0401, 0272, "1071", 1214)

[(DG-16D5S) A445, 1175]

..

It Makes A Difference In Performance Too... Because, Until You Buy A Stand-Alone HDD For The 4GB Model, You'll Be Only Using The Optical Drive To Play; Gears of War 3 etc...

Where Do You Hook, Your Coax Cable To The XBOX 360 Slims, Broadband Modem... ROFL...

..

The Game Servers [Activision] Harvest Data & Collate All The Players Data On MW3 - Elite Software & Compare Every Players Stats... On Microsoft Games Like Gears Of War 3... You Only See The Lobby Leaderboards & That's Because, For You To Keep Your Rank Or Stats... Data HAS TO Be Stored On YOUR SAVE DATA... Not Microsoft Server... So What's Your Point About A SurveyBox360.. When Microsoft, Is Just Allowing You To See Your Lobby Competitors Rank via The Same Way Your Playing In Lobby etc.. Not The Whole World To See...

..

I Bet You're Scared Using Google Or Youtube... Because, They Also Use Cloud Networking & "They" Survey, What You Search [Google Or YouTube] & Give You Recommended Link Or Suggested Vids etc...

..

Stop Being So Paranoid & If You Don't Like Microsoft Or XBOX360 Or LIVE!... Get Lost & Don't Bother Us With Your Incessant, Slandering & Libelous Ways, About Microsoft & Their Services... You're Using There Service Now & Trolling Nonsense... I'd Laugh, If You Get A Court Attendance, To Defend Yourself In The High Court... LOL..

Given how you type and what you're typing et al, I'd say -you- are the troll, NanoTechSoldier. You have this really bad habit, it seems, of making unnecessarily inflammatory posts and speaking down to people for no real reason.

I'm Not Speaking Down To People.. I'm Stating Facts...

Alienating Someone, Because Of The Way They Type... Is As Bad, As Someone Saying; You're Black & You Don't Belong Here...

Read, What EkuquoL, Wrote Above & Tell Me, That Isn't Trolling...

He Slanders This Service, Tells People, To Buy Elsewhere & Speaks LIKE THIS... That's Trolling & Speaking Down To Someone...

You quoted one sentence from his post that contained incorrect information and then went on a three paragraph tirade about how he's stupid and paranoid. Whether or not he "slanders" Xbox Live does not give you a free pass to make derogatory remarks aimed at him.



What exactly was stopping you from typing out a post that read more like "Well, I respectfully disagree with what you're saying, and here are my reasons why" ?
