New XBox 360

It seems they have revamped the design completely and it is up for sale at this point. They have really revamped it with all the minor improvements in one, its not a new system its just a really good revamp. If you don’t have an XBox then this is worth getting since its a very good improvement, and its also about 20% smaller then before which is always a great improvement. The built-in hard drive is needed addition, and I like all they have done but I’m surprised they haven’t included a Blu-Ray in this upgrade, I’m really not sure what they are waiting for, and if its just a matter of cost.

Major Updates

  • Touch sensitive on/off and eject buttons (like the PS3)
  • “Much quieter”
  • 250GB internal hard drive, which is still swappable
  • A custom Kinect port (not a standard USB port—it’s a USB port that can feed more power)
  • There are five USB ports now, with three in the back and two in the front
  • AV cable included, an HDMI and optical audio
  • Built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi
  • Different power supply—it’s still big but nearly weightless
  • External Xbox 360 hard drives and memory units are NOT compatible with the new Xbox
  • Internal components that are changed: two small fans changed into one large fan for quieter operation, 45nm integrated CPU and GPU
  • Price at $300

PS3 Slim in September

Sony comes out of the closet and anounces the release of the Sony PS3 Slim, coming out in the september. For $300 you get the 120GB slim with all the bangs and whistles of the normal PS3 but about a 1/3 smaller. After all this time without a PS3, I have decided to go ahead and purchase this one when it comes out, after all that Sony has worked out this is one cool looking machine and now I can get to enjoy the games that Sony has available.
