my buddy is trying to sell his 360 and is confused what the difference between gen 1 & 2 and why is gen 2 sellling for more on ebay?? my guess is that gen one is the ones that came out at launch and gen 2 is any other ones.. can anyone confirm or have the real defition for this

its just tricks, theres no differnece. they say newer consoles dont freeze as much but its a load of BS

I can say this though, my newer 360 hasn't had a problem yet. It's been like this:

First 360: MFR Date: 11-02-05, Broke (Freeze + Screen Artifacts)
Replacement #1: MFR Date: 11-22-05, Broke (Faulty DVD Drive)
Replacement #2: MFR Date: 12-22-05, Working

I would say the launch group probably had more problems than the second batch, but that is to be expected. But if your first batch 360 hasn't bit the dust yet, your probably safe.

alrite thats what i figured thanks

they might be distinguishing gen 1 as all the ones that came with the media remote, and gen 2 the ones shipping now without them

02-21-2006, 10:31 PM
i meant the earlier made ones were gen 1 thats what i as trying to say

02-21-2006, 10:32 PM
yea the earlier made ones have a media remote, now the past couple of shipments dont have media remotes, might be what makes ones gen 1 and others gen 2

02-21-2006, 10:33 PM
the remote might be worth something on ebay one day?

02-21-2006, 10:34 PM
it would have to be awhile since they shipped like 300,000 of them

Generation 1 sucked
Generation 2 rules

HDMI Port as standard.

G1 360s didn't have it until the elite, which is always put in a category of its own.

why was an over 3yr old thread resurrected for a "FTW" post?

Not only was this one of the first threads ever created on x360a, but the technical term is not generations, but models.

As I close this thread up, I'll tell you in order which model Xbox 360 is the oldest to newest.

- PSU Ouput DC (power Brick)


- Console

16,5A (Xenon)
14,2A (Falcon)
12,1A (Jasper)

The lower the numbers, the better chipset you'll have in your 360.;)
