I like you, was looking for the HDMI logo on the side, but on the back under the list of whats in the box, it says something like xbox360 game system with hdmi, real tiny. thats the only place on the box it had it.

Thanks. What it didn't have was the box that joystick showed. Really I’ll look again! Thanks. What it didn’t have was the box that joystick showed.

The chance of them actually knowing something like this, something that is actually important to the consumer, is rarely the case. Wish they trained those guys better. Also Microsoft, well... obviously they want to sell of the old ones and are asses about it because they don't want to lower the price, so we'll see how consumers feel about that!

I had the Red Circle of Death occur on my box and it got resolved. Pretty painless. What happens lately and it seems to happen when I am putting for the win in a Golf tournament is the disk suddenly becomes unreadable. I pull out the disk and there is like a scuff circle that wipes right off. I tried a cleaner disk and it hasn't happened since but I haven't played enough. I hope my optical cable on the disk drive isn't going out. It would be a bitch if I had to get a new box. Just waiting and waiting for Fable 2 Personally my Component video and the Optical sound into my Harmon Kardon system is good enough for me.

At the best buy and target all had hdmi on the box. Its under the componets list or something, there is no "HDMI" logo or wordmark, just a break of the specifications on the side of the box. Every where there. None in Canada yet though. I heard by end of October they should be here. Every single premium I saw in Buffalo NY had HDMI on the box.
