A bunch of special edition Xbox 360 faceplates were given away at E3 2005 as a promotional thing, and I didn't get one even though I was there the whole time. I could've picked one up on eBay but I didn't feel too desperate. Well it turns it's a good thing I didn't get it, because it turns out that those special edition plates do not fit onto the final Xbox 360. Apparently Microsoft made some changes to the case after E3 this year. All I can say to those who gloated over me about it: SUCKAHS!
UPDATE: Okay apparently we were wrong, and it DOES fit. I guess I was too eager to gloat over the other videogame journalists. Bah.
