Just arrived... FedEx did OK this time.
Pictures to follow.
The power brick is HUGE.
Included in the manuals is an Xbox window sticky (similar to the Apple stickers you get in Apple products, this is a static cling sticker.)
The bag for each item in the box (controller, headset, AV cords, etc.) is labeled as to what it contains ("SEE", "PLUG", "PLAY", etc.) in English and several other languages. This is VERY cool.
Here are some pictures:

Where did you order it from?
:'( We showed up at bestbuy before it closed and they had already given out vouchers for all the premium systems. We should have gotten a core however... Our backup plan was Costco because they had 72 and they were not going to be giving out vouchers, so it was going to be first come first serve. Shoe up this morning real early (business members get in 1 hour early) and they tell us that so many people showed up yesterday that they gave out vouchers and told them to come back when they opened. So we miss out on both fronts.
Can't wait to hear your opinions Clayj - particularly as you've got the exact games I'll be getting! What screen are you running the 360 on?
In fact, looking at your pictures, you've got the exact same order as me! Only you've got yours and I've got to wait until 2006 according to Amazon!!!!! Bah!
Perfect Dark Zero, PGR3, Call of Duty 2, Kameo, Madden 06, and NHL 2K6 so far.
I'll be using this on a Runco 50" plasma TV in 1080i... ironically, I can't hook it up yet because I need some female-to-female RCA adapters!
EBGames, back in August. I ordered it about 5 minutes after I got e-mail from them announcing preorders.
congrats- i'm interested to hear what you think about it- i'm not in to gaming, but curious.
do you plan on buying a new playstation3 also?
I though I was doing well with a 26" HiDef Sammy.....
Looks awesome, keep us updated, i am especially keen to hear your impressions on Perfect Dark Zero....
I'll be playing mine on a 106" Pull Down Screen for my DLP Projector
Can't wait for tomorrow
Looks like I'll have to buy a large sports car to make up for my screen size deficiencies
got mine this morning at 10am after freezing my ass off for 8 hours through the night. circuit city had 8 premium and 2 core. i got a premium!
So are you just going to tease us that you have a HUGE power brick, but not show us?
I'm sitting here right now... Xbox 360 hooked up and running in 1080i on a 50" plasma TV... just playing music from my Windows Media Center PC and watching the on-screen visualizations.
Never mind games... just seeing what this thing can do while playing MUSIC is worth all the money. I'd post a picture of the visualizations, but honestly this is something you really need to see for yourself. Stanley Kubrick should have lived long enough to see this... and I know there will be PLENTY of people dropping acid and sitting in front of their Xbox 360s watching the AMAZING on-screen visualizations. (It's REALLY trippy, and utterly smooth.)
Or you could save some money and just buy a new screen
Um, thanks. My line was a joke - in case you needed it clarifying. Hence the wink.
Anyway, back on track - a man like you Clayj must have an iPod (or 5 ) - can you use the visualiser with one? And is the usability withe the on-screen interface as intuative as an iPod?
And as some folks may have mentioned.... screenshots dude, screenshots...
Hey clay.....is your 360 loud? I hope I just didn't buy a defective unit! It's somewhat loud. I've never had such a loud machine before when I've played with a PS2, Xbox, or Gamecube for that matter.
Oh....and I can't believe I just sold a premium console for $2500!!!
Dude, you always get the newest toys.
I'm so jealous!
I also want to see this mysterious GIANT power brick.
is it bigger than a breadbox?
Wouldn't you need Male to Male cables to hook it up to a TV?
Also, I am no big games fan, but doesn't it also have support for HDMI? Or is this just the European model?
It looks cool, but I'll have to hold out for the ps3 and revolution.
How much was it by the way?
Darn, I should have pre-ordered about a 1,000 of these when they were first announced.
They are selling on ebay right now for $1,000+
Anyone know if there's anychance of picking one up at a store now? lol
Let's see $400 cost, $1000+ sell. Hmm, => $600 profit. I could definately use cash like that for college.
Mine is loud too. It must really kick in the fans when you play a game.
No, because the 360's video adapter has male connects, and my component-to-CAT-6 adapter ALSO has male connects. But I got my female-to-female adapters, and now it's all up and running.
The power brick is as long as my shoe... and I can hear the fan, but it's not loud.
