Xbox 360 real, no watermark 425px 2

These could be completely fake, but some semi-plausible specs for the new Xbox 360, as well as some details about Xbox Live, were posted and then quickly pulled from the TeamXbox forums. The part about it having a 20GB detachable hard drive seems a little sketch, since we'd heard something about it being a 40GB drive, but the rest of it seems to make sense. You have exactly 77 hours to argue over whether or not these are for real.

[Thanks, Joe]
