E3 2010: Microsoft Reveals the Sleek New Xbox 360

E3 is in full swing, and Microsoft's presentation just wrapped up.  Most of the focus was on Project Natal, now known as Kinect.  But at the end of the presentation, a longstanding rumor was officially confirmed: a new Xbox 360 is here.  Shipping to stores today, the new Xbox 360 is sleek, shiny, and dare we say sexy.  Abandoning the matte-finish curves of the first model, the new version is angular and glossy black. 

Besides the cosmetic changes, there's a lot of new stuff under the hood.  The best new addition is built-in wi-fi-N.  No more wireless networking adapters needed!  The unit is also smaller, quieter, and has a 250 gig hard drive.  And it's all for the same price, so we'd expect some nice clearance deals on older models soon.  We'll have more E3 coverage for you soon; in the meantime, what do you think of the new Xbox 360?

Updated: Is that an optical audio out I see on the back?  If so, that's a nice upgrade as well, as you needed a special cable from Microsoft to get 5.1 before (unless I am mistaken).
