    So are the old XBOX 360s not going to be compatible with the new Kinect system? I see that there's a "Kinect Ready" sticker on the picture above.

      The old systems will require a power adapter. The new ones power the device. Seeing how big the other power brick is, I'm scared.

    I believe, and I could be wrong. Kinect would connect directly to the new systems, but require an adapter for the older models.

      Whatta, you are absolutely right. The Kinect accessory is compatible with all XBOX 360 models, connecting through a custom connector on the new models, and to older ones using a USB and main power adapter. http://www.deltagsm.net/the-ne.....-up-close/
      Here's a picture of the adaptor needed to connect the sensory array to the older XBOX models, from the original Project Natal manual. (No word yet on the cost...)

      The new models connect through the AUX port. http://www.deltagsm.net/the-ne.....-up-close/

    The newer xbox360s are supposed to run cooler and quieter. Worth upgrading for that alone.
