Xbox 360 and 360 Elite?

Just wondering if the controllers from the Elite will work with the regular 360? I dont see why they wouldnt looks to be just a different color and bigger hard drive then again dont want to be out the money if I buy a controller and dont work. So does anyone know?

And an HDMI jack.

I'm not sure if there is anything else.

just a higher quality image transfer from the 360 to your HDTV. You'll need the HD DVD player to watch the videos, but I think it comes with it's own specific cables (not sure, and don't really care to drop $200 to find out firsthand)

You're close. It only comes with a USB cable to connect it to the XBox. The XBox did the video rendering, so the old ones couldn't use HDMI. The Elite remedies that situation but if you are using the old 360, the component cables work for 1080i resolution. HDMI lets you get 1080p.

I'd get an elite, but I'd wait till Aug 8th. Rumor is there will be a price cut that day

The component cables will let you do 1080p. You just have to have a TV that supports it. Samsung DLP models work just fine.
