AMEN TO THAT!

My Xbox never runs quietly, god forbid I load up a game and then it sounds like it's hacking up a fur ball! I can't wait to get mine, I got a nice chunk of change to put down on the new console when I reserved it at Gamestop and then traded in my Controller, Wireless Adapters, and the console itself. I haven't traded in the HDD yet though, I need that to transfer my data :)

Burned!!!!

Stare at it for a bit.. Really look at the difference.. But havent decided on what game to play yet.. I mean there's not gonna be any difference in the visuals point of view so.

Will probably play Crackdown 2 but then stop for a bit just to admire it and not have a massive fan sound come from it!

How you gonna do the transfer without a console.. Unless you're borrowing one from a friend? Which I'll hopefull do but I want to trade everything all in one which proves a bit of a problem caus I dont have a spare HDD or USB etc..

Game will actually do it in store for when you trade in (but you do have to buy the transfer kit or have another cable).

I had quite a good chat with the store manager when I preordered and he said I could keep hold of my old hdd and bring it in the next day and he would honour the trade in value.

First thing I'm going to do is what I did with my first 360...

Drop it down the stairs..

Or maybe I'll just spill Pepsi on it. Not sure yet..Choices, choices.

Actually you buy the HD Transfer Cables for $20.00 and you can do it yourself, you don't need the Xbox to transer the data. You hook one end onto the part of the hard drive that connects into the Xbox itself, and then you plug the USB part of the cable into the new Xbox S. Then it asks you if you want to transfer the data, you say yes, hit :abut: to start and BOOM! All done :)

I just bought one today from Gamestop for my Fiancée and I'm getting mine next week. All that's left to do is sell my last Xbox which is my RE5 Special Edition Red.

ive moved all my save data onto a memory card. my friend at gamestation has my hardrive on hold for me, so if my xbox hasnt sold by next friday, i can get all my DLC from it. if it someone wants to buy it before then, hes guna wipe it clean before sale.

Honestly, I just enjoy the sound the power button makes when you press it haha. The fact that it's touch sensitive is pretty cool.

Look at the shiiiny!

Then probably curse my stupidity when I find that the in-built WiFi is much worse than my previous setup...and when I realise that I don't really care about Kinect...

But then I'll once again be distracted by the SHIIINY!

I really like how quiet the Xbox Slim is (just bought mine the other day) and the wireless internet is really good. I haven't experienced any lag at all...at least not yet. As for the touch sensitivity, it's a little too sensitive since my border collie puppy Bella walked by the console, tail swishing and hit the eject button as I was playing Modern Warfare 2 with the tip of her tail.

I freaked out and she just looked at me like, "What did I do?" :) lol

Don't let the media get hold of this story "Video games linked to aggression towards puppies"

LOL it probably would happen too, but I didn't yell at her or anything. I was confused as to what happened, you know one of those moments when you die for no reason on CoDMW2, "What the F***?!" Yea...lol I think I startled her and then I looked down to see she was sitting in front of the Xbox and I just kinda put two and two together. My Fiancée thought it was funny, which it was...:p
