So I have had my 360 original since launch. God It has been awesome. So many memories! I really love it, but I can not help but feel like I'm missing out.

I am desperate for the wireless interenet, the hdmi, the huge hard drive, the sleek black look, and a change from the life-like jet engine sound that my XBOX 360's fan loves to reproduce.So what do those of you who have one, or who just have an opinion think about this?

If you have one that's so old it doesn't have HDMI, then by God go get a new one if you can afford it. It still plays the same games just as well, though. That's not something to get excited about.

If you want to sure why not but a wired connection is better than a wireless one.

Go for dude, I just picked up the 250g slim with 2 free games(Skyrim and Fonza) last week. My launch 360 bit the dust back in 2010 but I can't complain because I got 5yrs out of it....which is rare considering the failure rate for those models.

I think you kinda answered your own question right there. Especially since the holiday bundle is only like $200 or $250 for a 250 gig. That said, we will prolly either know about or have released the new xbox by this time next year

Not next year, I don't think, but probably Holiday 2014.

Well if you have the money then go for it. Last year I bought the Limited Edition Gears console and love it. Wireless, HDMI, very quiet and don't have to worry about hard drive space anymore. I ended up just giving my old one to my cousin.

Upgrade to a slim. I had the same question as you and I ended up going with the slim and I love it. Especially with Black Friday coming up you could get a sale which would even be better.

exactly what I planned on doing. If you visit best buy online and click on the preview of black friday link it shows they're having a $50 off sale on the slim holiday bundle. Although, It doesn't say anything about wether it's going to apply to online sales as well. If it does I will be a happy camper.

The next Gen Xbox will be out for the Holiday season 2013. Just buy a bigger HD and wait. Its not like you are going to be able to play any more games or run any more apps. Its the very same thing just newer. It would be a total waste of money. And I have a new slim by the way so I'm not one of those people telling you this because I dont have one.
