Nice! I've been holding off upgrading my 20GB HD for this very reason. Will gladly pick this bad boy up. I have no doubt it will have a big HD and WiFi. Time to kill the PS3 for good.

If that's the new one with a 250GB HDD, then I'm guessing that it is internal. I wonder if it will be a standard 2.5 inch drive that's easily upgradeable like it is for the PS3.

Looks nice, assuming it's real.

The outer shell looks ugly. I'm sorry, but i was expecting more from Microsoft. I know the look doesn't matter in some respects since games are important.

Hopefully it's smaller. It looks about the same. The part is Microsoft's engineers put vents on the sides. Which is good since it will hopefully vent heat better. I guess on monday it we will find out. :roll:

By the looks of it, it's going to mainly be a stand-up console. The things at the bottom kinda give it away.

Looks ugly and not all that slim. Combined with "Kinect", I'd say they've started E3 with a double whammy of suck.

Well, given how this uses more of a desktop CPU cooler with fan directly above heatsink unlike the current two fans sucking at the rear, having holes above that fan was simply a requirement. It wasn't adding more holes/ventilation for the hell of it, it was born out of necessity since there likely won't be that crazy exhaust system. So don't singing MS praises too fast there!
End of line.

It'll probably be as reliable as the current 360 model. Maybe a tiny bit better, but not much.

Also, some people on NeoGaf are saying Kinect is $190 for some reason. But I'm not reading anywhere that says it is.

As for the Slim, it would probably be best for me to withhold any comments until tomorrow, when we presumably will see the actual unit and know its true size and shape.

I hope the built-in Wifi works better than the add-on Wifi adapter, and that it still has an ethernet port just in case.

It's probably a cheaper version of the internals on the adapter.

In Kinect Sports Soccer, you're supposed to play the game by "kicking" the ball.

So does that mean I need to move my coffee table every time I want to play this game?

Although, come to think of it, Ricochet has the same "furniture placement" problem.

Kill the PS3? i don't think so. its all about the games and not some stupid redesign. the only reason the redesign for the ps3 worked so well because it was followed by a huge price drop. the xbox needs to have a price drop to see any significant sales increase. redesigns doesn't necessarily translate to sales. see the pspgo for that.

while ill buy my multi platform games with only on the xbox because of live, the ps3 has more and better exclusives.

The PSP Go! removed the UMD slot and essentially cut off 80% of PSP Games to be playable. You were forced to pay the same price - if not more - for a digital version. That is the worst comparison I have ever read. :roll:

ok then the dsi or the ds xl. the ds didnt see any significant sales increase from those that carried over after the first month. while the ds lite did but that was a smaller size for something you carried around. the xbox doesn't have the luxury.

prices drops drive sales, not some stupid redesign.

Hence the term used: Allegedly. There's still no confirmation that this specific pic is real, and it looks like it could be easily photoshopped. The best advice for the OP would be to wait before adding it to the OP, until there is some confirmation.

That design is bizarre if it's real. I'm eager to hear more, though. Bigger hard drive + better heating and less noise is all I'm really looking for. I've had my vacuum sounding 60 GB 360 for too long now.

Edit: Judging by those Kinect games, it looks like I can safely continue to not give a shit about it.

Geezus. It sounds like everyone who is fickle was waiting for the news coming from Microsoft. It seems like everything they rename something, everyone is ready to pounce on the name of it. Either you will buy it or won't.
As far as the design of a Xbox 360 slim, as long as it runs cooler with no RROD's, I don't care. It seems like the size queens came out today. And certainly not after the aesthetically pleasing products either.
To each their own, I guess. Gamers are just never a happy bunch.
At least the current generation is continuing and they are not shoving another console down your throat. I am happy with the current one and not only that, they are all doing the right thing by expanding on the current systems and appealing to all gamers, not just the ones who are vocal and critical.
