During their E3 press conference earlier this week, Microsoft confirmed rumors that have been flying around the web all week with a newly designed XBox 360.
The new 360 (dubbed by consumers as the “Xbox Slim”) features a sleek and slimmer all black design instead of the coarse feel of the older model, a 250 GB Hard Drive, built-in Wi-Fi N, a much quieter fan and hard drive, and is ready for Kinect.
Adding further hype to the announcement, it was announced that retailers were having units shipped to them today which will mean the new XBox 360 will be on shelves by the end of the week. As an added bonus to journalists in attendance, Microsoft shipped a free console unit to everyone who attended the press conference live… lucky bastards.
The new Xbox model is currently available in stores, where you can find them. Check out the announcement trailer after the jump.
