I thought this at first to, I almost regretted getting my Elite. Then a roommate picked up a brand new (hdmi port) white one a couple of months after I got my elite, and I noticed a couple of things:C=Style wrote:They're quieter too, plus they now support HDMI as standard. So there's no reason to buy an Elite tbh, unless you like the black case of course
120gb is way more space than I feel I'd ever need, but I was worried about 20gb if games in the future decide to offer hd installations to reduce load times. Well, those are unformatted sizes. While I still fill that my 108 or so gb hd is too big, his really only has a 13gb when it's completely empty. Not a big deal right now, but who knows what the future holds.
Also, when I first got my elite I had no idea what the complaints about the console being loud were about. I mean, the fan on mine is a little louder than my big ps2's was (the thin ps2 is completely silent), but it's not like it made the loud shrieking sounds that the dreamcast produces. But i've noticed that every time I fire up the white 360 in the living room, it sounds like a jet engine is taking off. The difference in the amount of noise they make is very noticeable.
Also the black does look better.
