Does this, the CORE system, have HDMI? I know the original didn't - but this is a new revision, Falcon 360 isn't it?

Thank you in advance!

the xbox is a great console, n is this the real price for a core? very cheap, and i would give this a 4/5 star if it was reliable... the huge downfall of this console is the red rings, i dont play my xbox for extremely long periods, but still i have had 3 different xboxs from hardware faults, and paying 50-60 pound each time just to fix it, and to add to that ive had 1 broke controller and 2 broken microphone headsets
which i think is absolutely stupid and im not happy about paying out all this extra money. there charging money for the product, money for games, then for live every month, replacing wired controllers and wired headsets and now to fix everyones xbox's once a year, microsoft have gotta up the game, and fix the problems

is it worth me buying a new core console, over repairing my old with hardware fault with 3 red rings?
anyone know if the newer stock of consoles are more reliable?

If you're looking for a console what's affordable, I recommend this. The only thing I don't like about the Xbox's is that you have to pay for online gaming; otherwise, I think that the Xbox 360 Console is brilliant.

you don't need a new one. you can fix the red ring. the xbox system is effectively a microsoft computer, and the red ring basically shuts of some of the subsystems inside. if you take it to a PC repair shop who can fix microsoft products, they should be able to repair it for you.

  Warranty on the 360

| | See all Gamestation's reviews (2)

Yes, you get a 3 year warranty on the xbox 360 if you are one of the minority to experience hardware failuire. The console accessories are covered for the usual year as with all electronic products. If you did have to sen the console back for a repair it's free shipping & nornally takes 5-10 working days but i know of someone that got his back in 5. It's a great system with a vast array of amazing games, connectivity to a media pc & also xbox live is outstanding!

I treated myself to a core 360 last xmas and it was running perfectly until recently. I didnt have the red eye of death, but it started to crash every 20 mins during play which became annoying v. quickly. However i moved the console out of my entertainment unit, made sure it was well venitlated and i havent had a problem since. Its a great piece of kit. If you want to really make the most of the consoles capabilities its worth buying the Elite or the full version from the very beginning. If your on a budget like i was then its great to build it up as you can afford to. Buy one!!!

I've had one since the first release day and I love it. Sure, I fell victim to the three red lights of death recently but, with all the hours I'd put in playing, it was bound to happen. Once you find a game that suits your gaming needs, you'll never want to put the controller down. For the full gaming experience, you will need to upgrade with a hard drive and a wireless controller.
There are some faults, the machine does whirr a little loud but once your immersed in game land, you'll hardly notice it. I do own a PS3 but there are more game choices for the 360 to suit everones needs.
I've even just ordered a 360 for each of my kids for xmas because once i'm gaming, there not a cat in hells chance of them getting a look in.
Along with Sky+, the Xbox 360 is one of the greatest inventions of the 21st Century.
Game on!!
