Looks a heck of a lot like a Powermac G5, which would be one of the Dev kits that game makers have recieved from Microsoft. I guess we'll know soon enough, though. I think Microsoft has plans to unveil this new Xbox within the next month or two.

I know what you mean, but I think this is something else. Although still similar to a G5 by the looks of it.

What makes me think it is genuine is that those 2 fans fit into a cut-out on the PCB. Which indicates that it is something which is manufactured to an exact fixed design, rather than a home built PC or whatever.

The XBox is the same, but with only 1 fan.

We also reported way back in time that the Xbox will come in versions with and without a hard drive. It now appears that the hard drive is a) 40GB and b) pre-loaded with Halo '2.5', which will be an updated version of Halo 2 with hi-res textures, in widescreen, designed for HDTV.
the INQ. HERE.


Wouldn't that be nice....wonder if halo "2.5" will come to pc?

hi def widescreen, and new graphics...PS 2.0, or 3.0, maybe?

what excites me is how good it should look in comparison to the orginal version, run on a outdate vid processor, and a 700mhz processor with what..64mb of ram?

The graphics were so choppy in Halo2, that it gave me motion sickness; I played the game for a total of 3 minutes before giving up.

So, if it not chppy, i can finally play the game!

I wonder what the losses per console will be this time with such exotic hardware

I wonder cuz that hardware ain't cheap, unlike last time. Maybe the prices will stay high for longer, but ofcourse Sony are sneaker buggers and do have a tendency to dominate the market very quickly. Just look at the PS2. LET WAR COMMENCE! Microsoft Vs Sony
