Stuff.tv has posted today about the new Xbox Ultimate that they are predicting (or confirming) will be released in August 2008.
The ultimate comes with the following specs
- 1080p HDMI output
- Built in Wi-Fi
- hi-def audio output
- 65nm hardware
- a silent fan
- HD-DVD drive built in
- 320GB hard drive to use with the IPTV service
Now there has been quite a lot of buzz around the Internet about this and I have to say I don’t know why. The biggest problem the PS3 had in the beginning was that it tried to create its own box that did everything.
I don’t want a HD-DVD drive when Blu-Ray may win, I don’t need 320GB when we don’t have live, the new premiums are quiet enough but the Wi-Fi would be nice.
Now if they release this for the same price as the current Elite then great, else I hope it isn’t true.
