First Xbox 360 seen in the wild


It’s pretty common for kids to go trolling on game forums and make obnoxious claims such as having a go on the Xbox 360 in their own home. Well, this thread on Gamespot started that way, except the kid actually backed up his claims with these photos:

Edit:Nevermind they don't allow hotlinking images

Now the kid is begging to get the thread deleted (maybe he found out what an NDA is), but the cat is already out of the bag. Apparently his step dad just started working for Microsoft under the title of Regulatory Compliance Manager, and is currently hardware testing the Xbox 360. The wires coming out the top are for such testing. The hardware is apparently complete, and although there were no 360 games to test, he gave Halo 2 a spin in backwards compatibility. He is claiming the power supply is external, and is enourmous. He also raved about the user interface/dashboard and the feel of the controller (and this coming from an admitted PlayStation fan, so it must be good).

You are a damn lucky kid, but I hope you didn’t just cost your step dad his new job.
NDA: Non Disclosure Agreement

One thing I've noticed though, and that's as far as I can tell, the Xbox 360 games look just about identical to the current Xbox games in terms of graphics. I wonder if anyone has manged to get a PS3 prototype in their house. :p

That's want you get for having something like this seen out in the wild, Anyone think that that X360 could be photoshopped or just an empty shell?

Yeah, it's like dad has a job at M$, but they don't pay him enough to buy furniture? o_O That room was completely empty (except the pillow). I don't know what to make of those shots.

he probably took the console without his stepfather knowing and took it to some empty apartment to take photos and eat twinkies.
