I don't think that it will be this slim. The above looks crap btw. The new slim 360 still has to fit the hard drive and the wireless controller that Microsoft sold all these years. Unless they make a model with built-in hdds but thats taking away money from add on market.
It doesn't have to fit the HDD. Microsoft would far rather sell you a new one than let you bring one you've already paid for with you.

What you're looking for is option 3, a new bespoke HDD casing.

quoting for the new page

http://newsoftrockhallelujah.blogspot.com/2010/04/like-taking-candy-from-baby.html

So... isn't the world of gaming pretty fucked up?

Firstly, any old dumbass can start a blog spouting crap and so-called 'legitimate' gaming websites fall over themselves to cover it. I'm looking at you MaxConsole.

What's more, within the space of hours gaming forums are only too willing to perpetuate substance-less rubbish. Even the oh-so-precious NeoGaf with it's "I'm more hardcore that you" snobbery. 280 replies and 26,000 page views... Gee, thanks guys.

Seriously, I often wonder if 90% of the people on that site even know what 'preeminent' means? Especially when, of late, a quick run through the first page of Gaf is actually the same mix of bitching and N4G reposts you get on any other gaming forums.

Standards have fallen.

See ya.
lol. pwnt.

Hilarious. It's not like anyone could see it was fake, right? :lol

Oh well, I'm going to create a twitter account named GameSpoon and my first tweet will be "Dudebro II will be announced at E3 as the launch title for the new Sega console". Believe!

You want to talk about dropped standards?

In a thread, on GAF, linking Natal to Metal Gear Solid, this wasn't posted at all.

Dark days, indeed.
There still hasn't been a posting of the MGS4 for 360 boxset.

yencid said:
hah what standards? and whats with the mention of Gaf?
From the very first page it was dismissed as this not being her.
I didn't bother to copy the link location (which I'd bet leads to this thread), but I imagine it is that a thread was posted at all about "SurferGirl" and that some people actually believed these speculations.

You think that MS wouldn't pay a BUCKET LOAD of cash to get a core franchise like that on Natal?
MS does not always get what they want, no matter how they wave their checkbook around.
Do you not think they would have payed mountains to get MGS4, especially with all of the rumors around at the time?
I do see MGS Rising having some kind of option sort of like RE 5 Gold


Did maxconsole make any kind of response or correction?

That's completely true, I already noted the same thing in several other threads.

And one also has to wonder - how high were the standards in the first place? Is simply higher than N4G, GameFAQs and GameTrailers high enough?

no no no the original surfer girl actually got stuff right... this its a pretty bad attempt specially if you noticed what "insider information" was posted in that blog before admitting that it was fake.

Seriously though, Why hasn't this topic been closed yet?
it's actually just sad now...

The thread is perpetuating itself even though someone is openly mocking the site... just proves that people don't even read a small % of a thread before replying.

For a laugh, go to one of those forums and take a look. Makes you apprciate NeoGAF all the more.

yeah because everyone cares so much that Gaf (or any one site for that matter) gets mocked.

Slightly OT:

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=236806

Here are some that came true (initially unconfirmed):

- The Gears of War trilogy will be finished on the Xbox 360.
- Forza Motorsport 3 is currently in development at Turn 10 and aiming for a spring/summer 2009 release.
- Super Punch-Out! is coming to Virtual Console [in 2008]. ~ came out 2009
- Team Ico is working on two titles (maybe three), one major and the other(s) smaller. The smaller one(s) is/are more like Echochrome and does/do not take place inside the Ico canon. ~ not sure about this, but TLG is the major one.
- Kane & Lynch 2 is still happening.

Although some are completely false like L.A. Noire not coming to the 360 and the Red Dead Revolver successor coming out as an exclusive.

how I missed this thread ?

Insomniac Games will surprise everyone at E3 - probably even Sony.
well if she is saying that Insomniac will go multiplat or even working exclusively for Micorosft I don't see it as a "surprise" at all , since Ted Price already hinted on going for bigger market and Insomniac was unhappy with PS3 fans attitude toward them.

It's Son of Godzilla. He likes to post the exact opposite of what anyone would, in any circumstance.
Let me translate his post for you:
