Xbox 360 Slim

Postby Chevalier Bayard » Mon 14 Jun, 2010 21:52

The new Xbox 360 Slim has been unveiled today by Microsoft during its E3 conference and the least we can say is that the new Xbox looks good in its shiny new coat of glossy black paint !

Xbox 360 Slim comes with a 250GB HDD and built-in Wi-Fi. All Xbox owners will be also amazed to learn that the new one is supposed to be very silent. No more noise than a whisper, as they say ... (I want to hear that first :D)

We also learned during Microsoft E3 conference that it's shipping to retailers right now!! (and all journalists present at the conference did leave with a console :P)

lol yes! Well let's hope soon enough we'll have accredited "TLF representatives" at E3 :D

Forgot to mention, the price for this new Xbox stays the same as the former one :)

It seems so. There is only one fan in the new Xbox 360 Slim while overheating is a major problem of Xbox 360 in general. I guess they've found a way. And yes I want to check that as well ;)

I've heard from people that have demoed it that it ts "whisper quiet" so much so that they think it should be a major selling point.

They did use the "whisper quiet" argument during the presentation. It's true that the actual Xbox makes so much noise that I can't help to be sceptical. I'm already installing all my games on the HD in order to lower the volume ;)
