EDIT: Forget the sh*t below (although it looks to be relevant). Rumors are flying, THIS is the new box!

EDIT: Un-watermarked. Thanks Sammael.

After solving the puzzle on OurColony you were greeted with these pics:

This would be consistent with rumors that the xbox will have a single button, be able to stand on it's side, and be a metallic silver. This could be it.

It looks pretty sexy, definately better than a huge black box. Beautiful.

I'll take Silver and Gunmetal Grey over white any day. ;)

Will have to wait and see how the entire thing looks before I judge it.

Interesting, it is also consistent with the "concave" design and the button looks like the one you keep seeing at ourcolony. Dunno about you all, but to me it looks pretty darn sweet. You also gotta remember you can't make full judgements until you see all 360 degrees (Heh...there 360 again lol)) of it.

Verrrrrrry interesting, I like it personally, but I want to see the whole thing.

looks like the macintosh g5 design, which is awsome. But i dont know about making an art tool look like an armored vehicle...

Here is supposedly the left side of the console, where what appears to be a removable hard drive location. Notice the resemblance from the pic we got above from ourcolony?...

[edit] I noticed just now that it says 40GB on the side... hehee hmmm...

04-23-2005, 01:14 AM
Could it possibly be?... IDK.

Anyway, a pic discovered by techtv interns (where the hell do they find some of these things? geez) shows possibly another curvy piece of the "xbox360".

Don't mind the black lines across the picture its said to be morse/barcodes [clue] from the latest ourcolony challenge at the moment.

This was originally put out by one of the goons over at SA (obvious w/ t he watermark I guess).

Apparently got it from a friend who would be in trouble etc. etc. They seem to think it's real, I wouldn't be surprised. There's a non-watermarked better looking version out there too, but that'll have to wait till I get home.

Where are the controller ports? Could it possibly be true that its 100% wireless? On the front pic I see to "memery unit" ports, but no controller ports.....humm

40 gig is kind of small in the day and age. I was expecting around 250.

It's likely not a standard HD, but more along the lines of a Laptop drive (Based upon it's size), which are more expensive to produce. I am sure you'll be getting your money's worth by setting down an extra $100 for the console.

Something I noticed. If the removable HD is supposedly on the left side of the machine, the dvd drive is also there... Won't those two items be in the way of one another?

Kyle Static
04-23-2005, 02:45 PM
I recall reading a while back, but never asking about it......they said there were only 2 controller inputs......does that mean no more 4 player compatibility? I mean I don't see why they would downsize the number of players in a next gen console...so I doubt it...but please clarify.

Madhattr
04-23-2005, 02:55 PM
Wait, what is up with the "memory unit" slots? And why are you ppl happy about wireless? I hate wireless controllers, they are nowhere near as stable and reliable as regular ones.

vman
04-23-2005, 03:08 PM
Looks like MS is holding their promise of a sleek and sexy design. I just hope that it holds up to all the hype. i hope they dont downsize to only 2 player capabilities. what a step backwards! and if it is totally wireless, that will be bad also. like, madhatter said, its less reliable then wired ones.

something tells me that there is something behind that little latch thingy on the right side... I wonder what it is..

Based upon the earlier leaked screenshot from OurColony, the HD snaps onto the left side. The image from OurColony is the HD-less version, while the recently leaked photo is the version with an HD. Since the HD snaps on, it is likely propped up vertical, versus the DVD-drives horizontal. HD > |-- < DVD

If you catch my drift.

Wireless is much better. But only if you use Logitech. I'm sure M$ will get this right. Besides, with completely wireless controllers it opens the doors for developers to make games that support MORE than four people. Like a sports title in which all of the players are controlled by seperate people in the real world.

A couple things I noticed:

That power button is big and awesome.

Based on the picture, it doesn't look that HDD will be something you want to carry in your pocket. Which means no xPod?

How big is this thing? It looks kind of small.

Am I the only one being reminded of the Phantom's concave design?

What is the small circle next to the memory slots?

Could the thing on the left be a door to some sort of port? Ethernet, USB, etc.

Will this have a WiFi card built in?

dun dun dun...

Yeah I just noticed the resemblance to the Phantom. I say it 's sexy and is gonna look great next to my LCD HD tv.

The concave part is the only aspect I'm not digging. Like guilty said, it looks too much like those early Phantom prototypes. The very last Phantom prototype was actually pretty cool, very sleak and sexy.

Otherwise it looks pretty good.

At least w/ the concave it will be stackable this time.

It could be stackable if it was flat too. ;)

The real picture doesn't look as curved as the artist rendering so it probably will look a lot better. Not complaining. :D

Go to hell, Captain Obvious. :mad:

Anyway, one argument I've seen for the concave is for cooling. At least providing some space should you stack it. :confused:

Now if I could just get Tivo to trade my black out w/ a silver, I'd be all set come the next-gen.

Rhiannon

Looks fine to me, and I love the idea of wireless controllers since my dogs are constantly stepping on and disconnecting mine :). What I love best is the announcement of the upcoming titles and game companies :)

I wish the same thing, I got my tivo one month before they switched to the silver model which would have fit in so much better with my stuff. :(

Here is the latest reward pic from ourcolony. Obviously looks like the memory card/ slot. Looking at the way the number is written (64MB?) it looks old. Looks very retro overall...

I can dig it if that is a true pic of the next gen Xbox, but until it is confirmed may 12th or whenever...I'm not going to get hyped over it.

I sure hope thats not what the final card looks like.. Looks like something straight out the 70s.

TRSundown
04-25-2005, 01:51 PM
Well if they are going to have three versions, one with no hard drive, that would make sense that they put memory card slots in the box... although I like the slots build into the controller better.

They should have made it with nothing but the power button, IR port, and the dvd drive on the front... that would have been sexy. Now you got these ugly memory card slots...

Yannie Boy
04-25-2005, 02:22 PM
i personally don't like the look of that big power button....seems out of place to me...as for the wireless controllers... i heard that it will run off of some frequency that will interfer with wireless connections,then again that was from my friend that likes to talk out his ass, some clear up on this would be great

Correction, there are no controller ports. It is wireless. The port you see on the front can be for anything from add on peripherals or it is just a sensor. Hard to tell from the pic.

I was thinking about that after looking at all the crazy stuff that's on my Xbox and it's just a 7 gig.
I guess MS has some big plans for the 360 that would require having a large hard drive. Perhaps home media or something.

Let's not forget that M$ is planning on making the console a DVR! This was one of the earliest rumors... with a 40GB hard drive, I would not be surprised....

I can imagine how dirty it can easily get for some people I know... [gag] :rofl:

BAH! I was thinking about something else this morning. If the new box doesn't have any controller ports, and is backwards compatible.... How the hell am I supposed to play DDR with the new redoctane pad I just bought?! Bah, I hope they have at least one port hidden in that thing on the right. I've heard that inside that small compartment is USB2 ports, if that's the case then I can just get a new breakaway cable, and we're golden....
