Microsoft’s latest redesign of the Xbox 360 gaming console is now available at retailers for purchase. This shot here, snapped at Best Buy, showcases all three models including the 4GB unit, the 4GB unit + Kinect, and the 250 GB unit. All three units were originally shown off at Microsoft’s E3 2013 press conference in Los Angeles.
The new Xbox 360 unit is a smaller and sleeker version of its older brother, the Xbox 360 Slim. The goal of Microsoft’s console redesign is to tie “a similar look and feel across the entire family of Xbox products.” All ports and internal specs of the unit remain the same – this is purely an aesthetics upgrade.
Here is part of Microsoft's offical press release on the unit:
"Microsoft Corp. today at E3 offered everyone who has yet to own an Xbox 360 or wants to update their existing console an irresistible new reason to jump in. Alongside the spectacular lineup of titles for its highly anticipated next Xbox entertainment system, Xbox One, Microsoft unveiled a fresh and exciting new design for Xbox 360. Shipping today to retailers across the U.S., U.K., Canada, Ireland and Australia, the new Xbox 360 will continue to roll out worldwide across all Xbox regions over the coming months, extending the life cycle and legacy of the celebrated console that has already sold 76 million units worldwide and has been the best-selling console in the U.S. for the past 28 months.
Sporting a sleek and stylish new design that resembles the Xbox One brand elements, the new Xbox 360 brings together a similar look and feel across the entire family of Xbox products.The new Xbox 360 appears stunning wherever it fits in the home and offers great performance. Itis available in multiple value-packed editions for the same great prices as the existing console:$199.99 estimated retail price (ERP1) for the 4GB console, $299.99 ERP for the 250GB edition and $299.99 ERP for the 4GB Kinect Bundle."
