You can get customized "skins" for your XBOX that will make it look even cooler than the limited edition (and it will cost a bit less as well). I think the limited edition looks pretty cool but I wouldn't pay an extra 20-30 pounds just to have the Green XBOX.

I agree with you on that point. But the LE also come with 2 "S" type controller with it, i think retailed @ 20-25 for that alone as opposed to just 1 controller with the original model. I also think replacement parts (DVD-ROM drive) would be better suited for the original model? and the external casing would be stronger than translucent plastics? (That's justy my opionion)

Anyone else with further comments?

As you pointed out, the real reason the LE version cost more is because it comes with an extra controller. The extra cost covers the cost of the controller.

Internally a Black X-Box is no different then a translucent model so getting replacement parts, such as the DVD-ROM drive, is a mute point.

Also, unless you plan on using your X-box as a step ladder the strength of the external case is another mute point. Under normal conditions both colors are just as strong.
