I got an interesting question a couple of days ago. “Is the slim Xbox 360 compatible with generic HD cables?”
The answer is yes and no. HD cables come in two flavors, component and HDMI. If you look at the back of the Xbox 360 250 GB you will notice that there are no component cable connectors:
When the Xbox 360 250GB came out I started doing research and trying to find out what the differences between the slim model and the original model. During my search I found the following excellent Microsoft Knowledge base article:
The thing is Microsoft has since pulled the article. Thank goodness for Google cache:
Here is my archive and analysis of the article:
One of the big surprises at E3 this year was the announcement by Gabe Newell, from Valve, that Portal 2 would be coming to BOTH Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2011. Gabe went on to say that the PS3 is “the most open platform of all the current generation consoles” and that the PS3 version of the PS3 will be the “best version on any console.”
