In a leaked memo from Mercury News, it has been revealed that Dean Takahashi can confirm the existence of an HDMI Xbox 360, with a whopping 120GB HDD included! Since the accidental leaking of the memo, it has been removed, as has the post on Team Xbox with a link to the article. How long will it be before Gizmodo are forced to remove it? How long before I have to remove it? According to Gizmodo, "Dean also talks about the use of the Xbox 360 as an IPTV set-top-box. The leak says Microsoft's IPTV services will have instant channel change, multiple picture-in-picture, broadcast shows, video on demand, and DVR functionality—gotta use those 120GB for more than just trailers."
So now we're looking at IPTV capale, fully equipped 120GB, HD-DVD wielding HDMI beasts? Wow... Microsoft did screw early adopters like myself. This kind of sucks... And stinks.
It just goes to show that CES is full of surprises. Despite the fact it's not even begun! This year some rather mad things could come up. In the other nights conference call with Gadgetell, we had a little joke over a Sony Car. Interesting to see if anything that different will in deed come up. Rumours are flying thick and fast. The photo you see above could very well have been a quickly snapped photoshop job though, for all we know. If The Xbox 360 v2 does indeed hit the shelves, I'll be expecting Microsoft to, at the very least, offer me a $200 off coupon.
