    Well, the article was, but not the photo of the power brick.

    Man that thing is massive - I thought people were exagerating.

    I don't think its so much that its power hungry, but they had to scrounge up something to power it and that was the closest thing on short notice.

    Supposedly according to those on GAF who've seen the production models that brick is indeed part of XBox 360. The difference is it's gray... I imagine similarly to the grey on the controller.

    why do you think the Edram is on a seperate board? they'v split up the guts of the machine to hide in the powerbox . that way they could make the xbox smaller..


    hehe

    Wow that is massive. I wonder how many watts it draws under load.

    Now am I right assuming that X360 has extrernal powersupply?, that would make importing more appealing to me.

    Actually I bet it's that big so it's NOT a fire hazard...

    The power supply will not be that big in the real 360's is it?

    Nope.

    It is gonna be that big outside the 360 ;)

    The PSU is the size of the Nintendo Revolution! Not that I care about PSUs (they get tucked away and seen once a year, if that) but it is funny :lol:
