New Look Xbox 360

Not only have Microsoft reduced the size of one of our favourite consoles – making it glossy black at the same time – they’ve also ramped the memory up to 250GB and introduced Project Natal Kinect

So E3 is in full swing – once again, instead of being in The States we’re reporting from the office (thanks boss) – but that doesn’t mean we can’t give you the goss’ on the new Xbox 360. On first impressions… it looks great.

Here is what they say about it…

Sleek New Design
A bold design and the glossy black finish mean the new Xbox 360 looks every bit as good as it performs.

250GB Hard Drive
The massive hard drive is perfect for downloading and storing HD movies, games, game add-ons, music and more.

Built-in Wi-Fi
Easily connect to Xbox LIVE, play with friends all over the world and experience a world of entertainment.

Whisper Quiet
The new Xbox 360 runs whisper quiet, letting you play games and watch movies without interference.

They are also introducing Kinect. We actually played around with this the other day and it seems more than interesting. About the new Wii-esque device they say, “Kinect works with every Xbox 360, and together they bring games and entertainment to life in extraordinary new ways††. With Kinect, you play as you were meant to, free from the boundaries of a controller. So what are you waiting for? Jump in!”
