this xbox looks very cool and everything.. but it almost looks like they made it red to hide the red light crash lol, but no it looks cool and if i didnt already buy my black one i would definately get it especially if it came with resident evil 5.
So I heard that the controller doesn't actually come with a rechargeable battery. Does that mean that if we buy one (aside from buying another red controller), the battery will be oddly black or white on the controller? I don't know why MS doesnt think ahead and at least give that in a bundle that's already pretty expensive to begin with.
Also, does anyone know if this is using the jasper chipset? It would be nice to get an xbox360 that doesn't sound a jet turbine...
