9 things you may actually hate about the new Xbox 360 S

Microsoft's newly angular funbox has improved, but makes some hardcore-unfriendly sacrifices

Above: It looks kinda cool, but it’s not going to fit any other 360 but this one

Above: It WAS clean. One 10-minute photo session later… not so much

What’s wrong with that, you ask? No previous 360 model has had this port. So, if you actually want Kinect, be warned you might have to shell out extra for some sort of compatibility dongle or somesuch.

Above: See this? It’s new. And it might just be the new red ring of death for your wallet

I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
