One thing I don't like about Xbox 2 is that it won't have a harddisk. I really hope they have the possibility of inserting a harddisk.

If I'm not mistaken, it has a removal hard-drive. It also has the old fashioned memory card ports on the actual machine this time around, and for good reason:

Some random information I acquired:
The machine is 110% wireless. No controller wires.
The machine has USB ports, however, to hook up your USB devices to.
Live 360 is video supported
Live 360 is fully customizable and fully intigrated into Xbox 360.
Xbox 360 is ALWAYS live aware, your friends invites will show up while you're watching DvD movies if you want them to.
The machine has three CPU's, roughly 4GHZ each
If your TV supports High Def, every xbox 360 game will be in high def.
If you have surround sound of whatever kind, every game will be in surround sound
Removable HD this time around
Removable face plates for style customization
Wireless controllers have a "360 Button", you get to the overall UI and your software instantly. The guide allows you to get into games, read messages, play music, download new games, view trailers, send messages, 360 Live, customize playlists, video messages, game invites, access your mp3 player, your pc's, your camcorder. This is apparently your SUPER XBOX DASHBOARD, and it is always available (in games, movies, whenever).
Player Profiles (gamecard, gamerscore, gamer awards (Completed Halo 2 On Legendary Mode, etc).
A gamer marketplace.

Man, thats all I can remember. Too much information :P

Oh, and apparently a few other tidbits:

Live 360 is supposedly free to some degree (though I think it may only be on weekends, regular and hardcore players will still wanna pay the 6 bucks or whatever - if I understood correctly)

Perfect Dark Zero can host more than 50 players per online gaming session. Thats right, I said more than 50. Holy shit, thats a magical deathmatch (which by the way, the footfage of the game made me weep in happiness. Even in its uncompleted glory did I bask in awe of its sexiness)

Games are fully customizable. They've stressed this to a strange degree. Quote: "Build your own skateparks, paint your own skateboards, setup your own race tracks, we put the power in your hands".

Apparently, much like you can customize your games on the PC (custom arm patch in Rainbow 6 anyone?) so too can you customize your shtuff on Xbox 360.



And I leave you with screenshots of Ghost Recon 3. Behold, the power of X 360 :P

This thing will fly off the shelves if people can afford it. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if it sold faster than Ozfest tickets.

The screens seemed to have gone MIA, however someone else made another thread featuring those three screens and three others. So check them out.

Ghost Recon 3 will cause many, many dirty boxers. :)
