Default Xbox 360 slim, Oh its true

Packing a black-finished case with prominent cooling vents, the new machine -- nicknamed the Xbox "Slim" by fans -- will retail for $299, the same price as the current 120 GB Xbox 360 Elite system. It will be compatible with all Xbox 360 games and hardware, with the exception of old-style external hard drives and memory cards.


Xbox 360 Slim
It's not any more powerful, but the redesigned 360 nevertheless addresses a number of recurring gripes with the existing design: aside from being smaller, it's quieter, includes built-in super-fast 802.11n wireless networking, and packs an internal, replaceable 250 GB hard drive.

It's also equipped with a smaller power supply, a dedicated connector for Microsoft's upcoming Kinect motion control system, and five USB ports. A matching black wireless controller will ship with the system.

Hands on at Engadget

I like it. I might have to replace my "Phat" 360 with one of these.

I seen videos of it from engadget! It looks great. Do I want it? Hell Yes! Will I Buy It? Hell No, because I just got the 250 GB Splinter Cell Bundle a couple months ago and I sure as hell won't get the money back that I paid for it. It was freakin' $399!

I'll be getting one asap. Also, MS will be releasing a $199 arcade version later on.

My original died about 6 months ago and I refused to buy a replacement until the slim was lauched due the the hardware failures of the past. I returned my launch system 5 times in the past and the warranty finally ran out on my last system and now my Xbox just freezes up on boot. Here to hoping that the hardware failures are fixed when the slim arrives that I ordered from Amazon..

I'm with you. It is noticeably slimmer, but not what I would consider to be a "slim" unit by any stretch.

It's lame that you can't do your own hard drive in there, but totally understood. Cool deal that they're coming with larger drives now, though. I got the Elite for Christmas, and I don't think I've used more than about 30GB. Almost all of that is Rock Band DLC.

what takes up most of my space (besides the hd episodes of trek i bought waaayyy back when) is game installs. i like playing from the hdd rather than the disc.

I still haven't gotten into that. The only reason I'd do that is to save on some noise coming from the console. Is there a noticeable difference when playing from the hard drive? I mean, you still need the disc to play the game, so I would think that it's not a ton quieter. Again, I haven't experienced it, so I'm just guessing here.

I don't think the S stands for "slim," but rather "small." Like the Xbox Controller S. And "small" would be in comparison to the original 360 design.

Anyway, I love the new design and I'll be trading in my current 360 for a new one as soon as I find out exactly what won't be in the $199 version. If it's anything I can live without, then I'll go cheaper.

The new 360 is really a tad slimmer. It's definately not wider than the old one:
