    in this video i was watching on forza 2 demo i saw this thing ontop of the 360 a the time 0:38 and i was wondernig what that was, i was thinking maybe like a dev kit were it lets them boot from a big hardrive to test the game constitly without having to burn and waste disks repeatedly, and it looks like a port on the front of the thing on top it looks like maybe a USB port or something high speed to load up the build? IDK just my insight on what that might be


    what is your opinons??

    looks nice.. i suppose it is what you say.. games bootable from harddrive for developers

    through USB mb? if so that'd be crazy . imagine plugging your 360 into your pc and transferring a new game =D

    That would be sick if someone (me, most likely never) could get our hands on it and spread the technology =]

    it came with a bigger hard drive to begin with, it looks different, and it operates different, its kinda like a console you would see at a gamestop or ebgames or something like that...

    so am i right that it may boot of the hardrive then, that would make more sense for the dev people so they dont have to keep burning disks

    i doubt it would, as you can buy dev kits off of ebay sometimes and no one has ever said anything it playing games from the hard drive, the last one i saw sold for over 5 grand though...

    That's just an add on HD with games on it on top of a Debug 360 (You can't buy those. The things that you can that go on top of your 360 are firmware flashing things made to look like those HDs...correct me if I'm wrong). Here's the proper MS debug unit without that HD (I really don't know how that guy got it).
