A few weeks ago, Microsoft announced that they were releasing a new version of the XBox 360.
Slimmer. Stronger. Sleeker.
The Nerd was instantly intrigued. A *new* XBox?
His XBox Elite was three years old. That’s practically an antique.
Of course, there was nothing *wrong* with it per se, but *eventually* it would die.
So, we had to get a new one.
Just over a week after the model was released, we searched all over DFW for a store with one in stock.
And we *finally* found one at Fry’s in Irving, a mere 26 miles from my parents’ house, where we were spending the weekend.
Can you see the excitement?
(He probably realized at this point that I was going to make fun of him on the blog. Poor guy.)
Ok, now he definitely knows I’m going to make fun of him.
And thus begins a series of photos of The Nerd taking the XBox out of its box.
This is *our* version of an unboxing video… errr… unboxing photos.
It’s out of the box!! Can we play games??
No! We *must* read the instruction manual. Because, you know, XBoxes are *so* complicated and stuff.
Ok, ok. *Now* we play games.
And now, all is right in the world.
We have acquired the latest electronic device.
No longer will the fear of a failing XBox plague us.
That is, until a *newer* model is released.
When the new XBox 360 was announced, The Nerd couldn’t *wait* to get his hands on one. Even though the old one still worked.
