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).
