Should I wait for the next rev before getting a 360 and a Creator's Club subscription Are there any plans to offer rebates or trade-ins I don't need 1080p or a 120GB disk... are those the only alleged upgrades (aside from the cooler cpu)

Well, if you don't need the extra features, then why wait and then pay more On the other hand, if you DO think that you'll use the HDMI and bigger hard drive (and other rumored improvements), I think it's pretty likely that a higher end 360 will be released sometime this year.

hmmm...maybe that's what Dave was hinting at for March 5th Creators Club "gravy" Let the rumors begin!

Somehow I doubt it.

Yeah, I don't think it'll be that either, but it's fun to speculate 

I'm leaning towards the release of XNA Racer.

That's pretty likely, but I hope it's more than that.

Maybe they are giving away Halo3 betas... Or PS3s. ;)

I'd sell the PS3 and buy another 360 and a ton of games. :)

Another 360 would be good for testing the network api when and if it's available... But I would probably trade it in for a Wii instead. :)

If the Wii had any decent games, maybe. Personally I'll stick with the tons of incredible games available for the 360 (Bring on Guitar Hero2, Bioshock, Mass Effect, and Halo 3 for starters!!!)

...In case there's any confusion, Microsoft's official stance on the Zephyr has been "no comment", but a few leaked pictures and videos, a rumor of a black 360 being released in Australia in April, and a growing demand indicate that it will probably happen in the near future.

But consider it still in the rumor bin at the moment since no official word has been released.
