E3 2010: The XBox 360 Slim Is Here

E3 2010: The XBox 360 Slim Is Here

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.

    Nice, so when your piece of crap system breaks at least it’ll take up less space.

    the new xbox is a lot better than the old xbox as there is bigger and cooler vents all around the xbox (top, bottom and on one of the sides). this should prevent the xbox from over heating (RROD).
    the xbox will never RROD anymore because microsoft have taken the red ring LEDS out of the new xbox. but if there is an error (all consoles will have errors) the new xbox will show a red dot (on the power touch button).
    best thing is to take out exted warrenty (about £30) for 3 years but do ask the staff many questions on when the warrenty will start, what is covered, do they do instant replacements etc. (some stores like comet are kind of dodgy).
    im gna buy this new xbox probably from currys/pc world 🙂
