Xbox 360 Elite is now the premier Xbox 360 console package that includes a massive 120GB hard drive, a high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) port, a high-definition cable, and a premium black finish. The Xbox 360 Elite also includes a black wireless controller and black Xbox Live headset.
Components of the Xbox 360 Elite package will include:
Xbox 360 Elite is equipped with a premium black finish and three powerful core processors capable of producing the best in high-definition entertainment, full surround sound, HDMI output, and DVD playback with upscaling capabilities right out of the box.
120GB Hard Drive
The huge 120GB detachable hard drive is the largest available on any console. It lets you save your games and store television shows, movies, music, pictures, trailers, extra game levels, demos, and other content available from Xbox Live Marketplace.
Black Wireless Controller
The sleek black finish of this high-performance wireless controller matches the style of the Elite Console. It has a range of up to 30 feet and a battery life of 30 hours on two AA batteries.
A HDMI cable will be included in the box, both component and composite cables, an audio adapter for use with HDMI, Xbox Live headset and a 30 day Xbox Live Gold membership. There will be no rumoured HD-DVD drive, in-built wi-fi capabilities, nor will the console use the smaller 65nm chips.
For those of you looking to ensure the best quality Gaming/Video/Media Center Extender output, this is the package that you will want, as the HDMI output is a digital output, unlike the current analog VGA/Component option. The larger hard drive will also bode well for the Xbox 360/IPTV platform that was previously announced at CES 2007.
Retail availability of the Xbox 360 Elite is scheduled for April 29, 2007 in the US and Canada markets.
