That's an awesome deal. Both games are great. I just replayed the Halo 4 campaign, and it was very good.

Not worth it, go find an S unit, some places still have them in stock and they're a better unit than the E model.

He's exaggerating and hates everything.

The unit is smaller but the insides aren't the same as the S model so it's not going to overheat

-they removed the A/V and S/PDIF ports in favor of a single composite out jack.
-4 usb ports instead of 5

Looks like they have HDMI which is fine as my whole set up is based on HDMI, tv, receiver, etc.

Actually they do get hotter than the S models because it's smaller so there's less airflow around the critical parts, with pretty much the same cooling hardware as the S model.

The removal of the ports is the biggest thing that makes the E model a downgrade from the S model. Most of the headsets on the market use the Digital Optical Audio output port (especially the high end headsets), and pretty much all surround sound systems on the market use that port.

I have absolutely nothing against the Xbox 360, but TheBlueStig is only telling the truth. The S model is the better model compared to the E version. For all of the reasons he cited.

MS had no excuse to cut corners when they designed the E console revision. That's the only thing stopping me from owning one of that version.

S model is the way to go.
