I'd buy the new one. I understand that the black version will be a limited edition like they did with the clear X-BOX so if you really want the black version you should get that one.

I have a 360 but I will get the new one and keep the old one for when I go to my friends.

If MS really doesn't release an HDMI adapter for existing 360 owners, I may just sell my 360 and buy the black one.

As much as I would love to get it, i already own a 360 and would hate to pay it again for minor upgrades. Ive already gone through 3 sense launch time so im sure if this gives out, ill pickup a black one but till then, wouldnt randomly own two 360's

If I did not currently have one I'd wait to see if the Black 360 really happens, the rumored release date is only like 5 - 6 weeks away.

Since I already have a 360 + all the extras (HD-DVD, 4 controllers, wireless etc... in white) and I do not have an HDMI receiver (for the advanced sound with HD-DVD), I really don't have much reason to upgrade at this time. I will probably upgrade if/when an upgraded white 360 comes out though at some point.

for the 360, the HDMI wont matter because it dosent support lossless audio in any form so the 360, the best it can do is what your optical cord can already do.

In terms of HDMI vs component, you will hear both sides argue it to death. Is your TV a 1080p and if so, is it a pretty nice setup?

Other wise, I doubt its going to make a big deal in terms of OMG, thank god I waited for the HDMI. Had it had an HD-DVD drive in side, yea, i woulda liked HDMI.
