Poject Zephyr (aka: Xbox 360 V2.)

Project Zephyr is the updated version of the Xbox 360. Zephyr is rumored. Nothing is been proven yet. Recently there are pictures of the new updated version of the 360.
___________________________________________________________________

Zephyr will include (Rumored)

-HDMI port for 1080p picture
-120GB Hard drive
- New CPU using 65nm semiconductor technology
-Capability to serve IPTV (Internet Protocol Television)-->Confirmed by MS

Xbox 360 V2 Debunked: (Thanks to ColoradoKindBud)

GS: What can you tell us about the HDMI-enabled Xbox 360 rumors that have been going around?

CS: We're always working on prototypes and new technologies and just playing with stuff in Redmond to see what's interesting. I think at the moment we have the widest available connections on the system. If you want to get great HD, I think we've got a good solution for that. In the future it's interesting to see where standards evolve to. I think it's one of the problems that the whole industry, us and entertainment, are facing at the moment is we're in this world where standards are evolving very quickly.

We have different high-definition standards for discs that we know are competing at the moment. We think HD-DVD is going to be the right way to go, but really it's all about choice in that system so that's why we're offering these sort of services with downloads--skip that whole format wars problem. With other standards, audio-video standards, they're evolving very quickly as well. We're obviously keeping an eye on that and saying "what are the future standards and how do we give consumers the right choice for that?"

At the moment, everything you might have seen is just looking at our experimentation back in Redmond, not really a product that we're thinking about announcing.

"This is right here on the GS website.  So everyone who was getting all twitterpated over this can relax now."

Pictures


-The HDMI port for the 360 was rumored long before Project Zephyr was shown. This pic appear in the web around summer 06.


-We can clearly see the HDMI port in here.

__________________________________________________________________

Last Word

This is just a Rumor. There has been no official annoucement about an updated version of the 360. We'll just have to wait for Microsoft CES keynote address to get the real scoop of Project Zephyr. Don't be mad about this. Every products gets updated every year, even gaming consoles. We should be happy that MS is fixing all the flaws the 360 is having in this next version(if it's real). One thing that MS did announce was IPTV function in the 360. This abilty could be added with an update just like Video Marketplace. ___________________________________________________________________

people should stop posting threads about this, its old now

plus where did those people get the "new" 360 anyways, maybe they modded?

anyways nothing is confirmed adn i know people will be like yes it is go here and take me to ign or gamespot not ms and the site there will tell me leaked info about Gates is going to release the info tom. well u know what that means not confirmed yet buddy

edit
New CPU using 65nm semiconductor technology

thast not a rumor thats confiurmed, been confirmed for awhile and suppose to come out early 07, also to the people that dont know the new processor is just smaller, uses less energy, creates less heat, and cheaper to produce, it still has the same processing power

As an 'early' adopter of the Xbox 360 platform I feel that Micrsoft as a company has betrayed their most loyal fans. We pay them with our good money for the latest in video game consoles to find them only a year later updating the system with features that were supposed to be on the original system. I am not worried about the larger hard drive as I dont store any media besides game demos on there, I dont care about the cooler chip as I already have an intercooler but seriously adding a hdmi port?! I am one of those people who do have a 1080p hdtv and I am really pissed that now they decide to introduce a hdmi port. Hopefully though they will be able make some sort of accessory so the v1 360s will support hdmi

yea if MS lets the people who own 360's turn them in to get the v2 and pay the coverage cost of the extra added things i think all will go well. hopefully they will do that and show some compassion towards us. better start praying.

Anyone knows when this version will be coming out? My birthday is in March so I was wondering if it would come out by then. If not, then I'll wait for it to come out.

This is like spitting in the face of early adopters :? Anyways, 120GB seems overkill. 30-60GB seems more reasonable.

kinda sucks that they rushed it just so that they could sell more products and win the console war.... a console is not like a computer where it upgrades every year... they may fix issues on it but not tottaly change things or add things after its been released...
the zypher chip is not an issue because it doesnt effect the system, it improves on faulty original equipment(the reason for all the warrenty issues).. i dont like that we are told not to get mad because its normal,, bull shyt its normal...
i understand its buisness and in a buisness ur supposed to make money, but it dont mean i cant be pissed about it, or feel like this company is untrustworthy... and make me think twice about microsoft in future purchases...
they didnt include it originally to cut cost, and now that its cheaper to make them because the zypher chip is cheaper and all the other obvious reasons they decide to add the hdmi and who knows what else to it cause it wont cut into a billionairs and millionairs wallet.....
this is totaly different from the ds to ds lite, and the ps2 to the ps2 slim....
at least ps3 gave u options if u wanted the expensive one or not... that seems more honest to me......

If you look at the black boxy area on pic 2, you'll see that's where the wireless adapter should go, so maybe on the first post you should mention that the zephyr may include integrated wireless.

Well...except for the part where the PS3 has a blu ray drive....which uses a ten year old compression technology....so I'm not interested in that....and not having a power brick...while remaining the same size...not 11lbs of fingerprints.

the bluray drive is using a more up to date compression method, also, 11 pounds of fingerprints? how often fo you rub your video game console?? When the 360 V.2 launches, i will join the Xbox community for the first time. Besides, all these great games that are currently out will be chaper by then LOL

Bill Gates keynote speech will be tonight at 9:30pm EST. I can bet you that the console shown was either modded or a developers kit. I am leaning towards modded because I don't see why an individual would have that console in their home.

Everything will be answered tonight and I can bet you that the console is fake or it will never be released to the public so stop speculating and wait.
