  • Pioneer Elite BDP-09FD: Damn, Jimmy, this is the Elite sh*t

    Now that Blu-Ray has five years to live, it’s important for CE manufacturers to pump out as much hardware as possible so that soon my son can bring me a BD disc and, while snickering grandly, will ask “You guys used these?” in the same way I once laughed at Laserdiscs. The BDP-09FD plays BD, CD, and DVD disks and includes upconverting and BD-Live features. The drive will… Read More

  • Pioneer Elite BDP-09FD Blu-ray player leaks out

    Most AV guys will tell you that, currently, the best Blu-ray player on the market is the PS3. That reign is going to come smashing down when the Pioneer Elite BDP-09FD hits the market though. Simply put: this is one bad mother. 50lbs of steel and aluminum, this Blu-ray player is the stuff some guys dream about. Well, maybe just our dreams. The BDP-09FD is the first Pioneer unit to… Read More

  • How To Spot An HDMI-Equipped Premium Xbox 360

    Oh you didn’t know? Microsoft decked out the Premium Xbox 360 with an HDMI port, giving you one less reason to shell out the extra cash for an Elite 360. (I’d save for the new Halo 3 360, but that’s just me.) How do you spot the HDMI-equipped Premium? Um, it says that it has an HDMI port. Also, you’ll find the word “Zephyr” on the box. Class… Read More

  • Sony Says Maybe To 80GB PS3 For U.S.

    So what, Sony will sell an 80GB PS3 in South Korea starting next month. Big deal. What about those of us in the United States of America? Well, Sony just hinted that it’s considering selling the 80GB model here and elsewhere. Apparently Sony will decide whether or not to introduce the big boy in different markets on a market-by-market basis. Hence, we still see the 20GB PS3 on sale in… Read More

  • Xbox 360 Elite Not So Elite After All

    I’ll agree with Nicholas on the fact that the Elite doesn’t deserve an 8.5 rating just because it’s black, has a 120GB HDD and HDMI. Microsoft is continuing its quest to screw us from all sides and pinch us for money every chance it gets. Ben over at Ars Technica learned just how bad the situation is first-hand. Read More

  • Xbox 360 Elite Taken Apart, Doesn't Work With Hacking Tools

    The sleuths at llamma.com got their hands on an Xbox 360 Elite and were kind-hearted enough to crack it open for us. While the CPU and GPU do appear to be different than the regular 360’s, llamma doesn’t know if they’re the rumored 65nm design or not. (The 65nm chips are supposed to help drive down the cost of manufacturing, eventually leading to a lower priced 360.) Also of… Read More

  • Xbox 360 Elite Officialized Tomorrow

    Another day and another Xbox 360 Elite rumor, but this one might actually hold water. GameDaily Biz has been informed by an industry source that Microsoft will officially announce the existence of the Elite sometime tomorrow. Eh.

  • Xbox 360 Elite Pics Leaked

    It looks as if the rumors of a black Xbox 360 codenamed Elite are true. These pics are straight from the factory in China and they’ll be equipped with the beefy 120GB HDD we’ve been dreaming about. No confirmation on HDMI, but this is better than nothing. Apparently, Xbox 360 fanboy had to invert the last picture to reveal the actual tagging on top of the HD since the pics had… Read More
