Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite


Microsoft updates the Xbox 360 without expecting consumers to pay through the nose - novel idea...

The Xbox 360 Elite may not address the noise pollution issue that has plagued Microsoft's console since launch, but it does bring some key new features to the platform. HDMI support is a welcome addition, while the increased hard disk capacity will...

Evolution not revolution is the name of the Xbox Elite's game with an HDMI-out and bigger hard-drive the bait for anyone who managed to resist the original's charms

If you're buying a new 360, get an Elite – simple as that. If you've already got one, this is pretty much a cosmetic upgrade

Better value than Premium. Big hard drive. New HDMI connection. Smart paint job

Premium is getting an HDMI connection too. Doesn't include HD-DVD drive

Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite review


Microsoft's Xbox 360 Elite is here, and this version of the sleek game console offers more than just cosmetic improvements. The unit's bolstered specs - such as a 120GB hard disk drive and an HDMI 1.2 connector, perfect for today's high-def TVs - mean...

If you haven't jumped on the Xbox bandwagon just yet, but had planned to (Halo 3, anyone?), the Xbox 360 Elite merits your consideration. The inclusion of the 120GB hard drive, HDMI, and full 1080p support may make this console pricey, but it's also a...

Xbox 360 Elite


The Xbox 360 is more than just a games console, thanks to Microsoft's efforts to turn its gaming hub into a proper media player. Fire it up and you'll get movie rentals in HD, music and video streaming abilities to bring your PC's media collection into...

Despite its age, the Xbox 360 remains a powerhouse of a games console, with constant updates making it an indispensable media machine too. Sure the design is more tanktop than tight jeans, but the Elite’s black paint does a little to soften its...

Microsoft - Xbox 360 Elite


The enhanced version of Microsoft's successful gaming console has to realistically be marked down as a missed opportunity. On one hand it's undoubtedly a powerful beast, and better equipped to go toe-to-toe with Sony's Playstation 3 ...

A super games console, but a surprisingly cautious update of the original Xbox 360 technology.

Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite


After nearly two years on sale in the UK, Microsoft today launched the first major update of the Xbox 360. The Elite is slicker, it's snazzier, and it's a little more expensive at £299. But is it any better?

Improved storage, HDMI support and included cable, Small price premium over standard 360

No Wi-Fi as standard, HD DVD drive still an add-on extra

An attractive and well-priced option if you're a first-time buyer, but if you already own an Xbox 360, there's not enough reason here to upgrade
