Red Resident Evil Edition Xbox 360 Surfaces


Red Resident Evil Edition Xbox 360 Surfaces

The release of Resident Evil 5 is but days away and not only are we at TR pretty excited, but Microsoft are too. As evidenced by the announcement of a special Resident Evil 5 edition Xbox 360.

The package includes a special red Xbox 360 Elite, a matching controller, a black wireless headset an 'exclusive' dashboard theme, a copy of Super Street Fighter ll Turbo HD Remix - another Capcom title, for the curious - and, surprise surprise, a copy of the game itself. Personally, the Collectors' Edition with its funky satchel, figurine and sew-on patch has more appeal, although the chosen shadeof red is pretty sweet.

Pricing hasn't been mentioned, but with the standard Elite retailing in the £200 region, £230-odd seems a reasonable ballpark for the Resident Evil flavoured version. The special edition console will be on sale at the same time as the game - the 13th of March - and Microsoft warns the numbers are limited. So get pre-ordering now!

Perfect, a red xbox to camouflage instances of the RRoD 'umm, your xbox isn't broken, we just changed the LEDs to match the colour scheme'

Does anyone know if these Elite versions contain the Falcon chipset (ie...the one's which reduce overheat/failure rate)???

You would prefer the newer "Jasper" board which has superseded the "Falcon" board.

Look for 150W power output rating on the box for Jasper. Falcon used 175W.
