Okay, so here's the next nasty surprise. Notice this cable. Does it look like HDMI to you? Nope, me neither.The Xbox 360 Elite came with an HDMI cable which, if you don't buy them from Best Buy, can be actually cheap. And yet, no HDMI cable.We think this was a poor choice. Yes, it's the least common denominator, but it's time for Microsoft to fully embrace HD and sell the loser-people's video cable to those who insist on buying a Wii this holiday season.
Ah, finally, the Kinect.
Here we have yet another nasty surprise. For some people, this won't be an issue, but for others...it sucks.If you looked at the Kinect unboxing gallery, you might have noticed a particular USB gable with a power supply.The bundle didn't come with this cable, and as a result, you can't buy yourself a new Xbox, give your old Xbox to your wife with the Kinect, and have them work. The Kinect with the Xbox bundle, must be used with the new model Xbox.As far as we can tell, Microsoft has no plans to offer this cable as a separate purchase. Fail.
