    More importantly, when is 360 defrag gonna be implemented?

    My 360 now takes about 10-20 seconds to list the video files on its hard drive and it only has 4.  It used to be instant and it had about 10 but the constant download, delete, download, delete seems to have fragmented the HD like crazy.

    Everything is slowing down, quitting games back to the dashboard is getting painfully slow.

    Not really anything about the operating system.  I didn’t know where to voice my opinion, so I’m doing it here.  ^_^  I’m sort of disappointed in the Xbox 360 Elite.

    I wish it would have included the 65 nm chips developed earlier.  I also wish that Microsoft would include WiFi within their system.  The Wii and PlayStation 3 both have it, but I have a feeling Microsoft won’t include it because that would make their wireless internet adapter useless, cutting into their profits.  I also think that they should create motion controls.  It’s not that much of a big deal, but rumble and motion control support would help compete against Sony.  If you used the 65 nm chips to make the system quieter, cooler, and more efficient, couldn’t you in turn reduce the size of the power brick?

    Without any of these additions, it’s hard for me to consider the $479.99 price tag of the Elite system justifiable.  Hopefully you guys can work on these things.  I’d definitely pay $500 for a system with all those additions.  However, right now I feel the Elite system isn’t worth it.
