I Think the 360 looks great right now and ms should focus more on making a more durable 360. The slim might be a good idea to some but the 360 already has problems regarding heat and a slimmer version might make that problem bigger. I would say that If they made the slim more durable and less heat generating compared to lets say the jasper ( which I have ) i would definitely buy it. Very Happy

The 360 Slim uses a combined chip and uses less energy and generates less heat. It can be cool much more efficiently this way. You want a more durable 360, the Slim will be bullet proof.

Guess my jasper will be getting replaced.

the Xbox360 isn't really a big machine unlike the PS3 so I feel an Xbox Slim would be unnecessary unless they do something with the power brick ... maybe.

This is the first Xbox 360 Slim concept i've seen that actually looks feasible.

I dislike the way that looks, not really ergonomic...

Doesn't the RROD exist because the hardware was poorly crammed into the 360? And they're making it even smaller? Oh, well, assuming this Slim is in fact coming out, I'm sure Microsoft knows what they're doing.

No the RROD occured because the onboard CPU overheated too quickly due to poor cooling. But thats all gone now with the new chipset.

If the Slim uses the 45nm chipset, it will be even better.

Look at the Wii. A Slim Wii would be impossible because the disc dray takes up way too much space. That's why I thought a 360 Slim would be impossible. The disc tray takes up way too much space, while the PS3 has all of this extra room that was trimmed off.

I thought the poor cooling was due to the heat sink being packed in so close to the fan/cooling vent, or something like that. It didn't give the part enough room to "breathe" (for lack of better words).

Something like that. They mainly resolved the problem by having the newer CPU's smaller and produce less heat.

Oh, alright. So they could implement that into the Slim and having it perform like a regular 360.
