xbox 360 "slim"
Microsoft has decided to bring out a new version of the old version xbox 360 consoles. Now the xbox was unveiled at Microsoft's annual E3 conference on Monday, and they have decided to release it by the end of the week. The name for the xbox is still the xbox, but fans call it the xbox slim. Now the price for the new xbox slim is going to stay around the same price range as the other xbox's, around $300. The arcade xbox is around $200 and the elite is $300 so it's going to fall in place as the others. You'd figure a new thing reduces the price of the older ones and that's true, the arcade will drop to $150, and the elite $250 so only a 50 buck drop. There's not much of a difference between the new xbox and the other xbox's out there, only that the slim dosnet have HD cables, but I'll go over what this xbox packs in.
The new Xbox 360 Slim
There's not much of a difference but here's a list of the new features in this new xbox "slim".
- Little smaller
- suppose to be quieter
- Built in wireless networking
- 250 GB internal hard drive that you can remove, it's different than the other hard drives, but you can transfer data from it to the newer one. They plan on making a data transfer kit into it being a retail, for about 20 bucks.
- Connector for the new upcoming Kinect motion control system
- 5 USB ports
- Lighter power adaptor
- No HD cables
It's got a slimer look to it but not much. It still weighs about the same, and it has touch button's for the power button, and the tray button(to open the tray). It has a 3 openings for air flow, one on top, bottom, and side. They say it's not as fast as the other models, and that they didn't change much beside the cover, the sound, and look. If you already have an xbox 360, then i really wouldn't bother since there isn't that much of a difference performance wise, but if you have 300 laying around than by all means go out and buy, it'll be released by the end of the week.
Is it worth it?
If you are a big fan with money, then ya, but if you all ready have an xbox 360 that works fine then don't bother. Right now i doubt that many people have money to spend on things like a new xbox 360, rather than groccerices for a month(walmart). But i'm sure there are people just like the ones with the new Ipad dieing for the new xbox 360 slim , and they'll be the first in line to buy it with about $315 plus tax in their pockets. Not me, because not all of us have $315 to spend on a thing that most already have, since it's the same thing!!! Most people already boughtthe wifi adaptor, the 250 GB had drive, and the cooling fan for their xbox 360, so why go out and buy the same thing? Oh ya cause this xbox has everything built in already, and it's in Black, quieter, and a bit slimmer. If someone were to give me $315 I'd probably buy something else, but that's just me.

- What is the Difference Between Xbox 360 Models?
Are you looking to buy an Xbox 360? Before you do, take a closer look because there's more than just one version of the console out there! Take a look at what you get for your money and the differences between models.
Which is better?
PS3- Sounds and looks way better than the new and old Xboxes that Microsoft have released in the past. Even though they came out with a new xbox it still can't match with the PS3. What the PS3 has that the xbox 360 doesn't is that it has Blue-ray player, better graphics, and it's just a very powerful video game console, than the xbox 360.
Xbox 360's- The only great part of the xbox would be it's cheap in price, you get the latest game download add on's, like modern warfare 2, and it has gotten quieter. The new one looks cooler than the PS3, that's what most say, and it has a lot more memory space than the PS3 for a smaller value. Other than that there really isn't much of a difference, I'd choise the PS3, buy i already have an Xbox 360.
