Xbox 360s to Get CPU Upgrade Next Year

I know, I know; there's entirely too much Xbox news today. Moving right along, it appears that the 360 will be the recipient of a processor upgrade sometime next year. Before all your current Xbox owners light your torches and grab your pitchforks, this won't be a performance enhancement; rather, the company that makes the Xbox's CPu is switching to 65nm technology from the current-generation's 90nm, meaning that the chips should run far cooler and consume less power (theoretically).

So, if you're planning on buying an Xbox 360 this holiday season, you might want to wait a few months so that you aren't the victim of an exploding Xbox when you try to play Dead Rising.
