The New Xbox 360 Slim comes in a very sexy design with a glossy black color. What’s new is that it has touch-sensitive buttons for on/off, eject and others so you just swipe your finger! It is also as Microsoft says it, its “whisper quiet”. Instead of the Xbox 360 having two fans, it only has one but larger than it was before. Also, the new 45nm chipset will also generate less heat. It also has 2.4GHz 802.11n WiFi, five USB ports where upgraders can just use a USB-to-Xbox hard drive connector. Its storage is 250GB on a removable hard drive. There’s also a “custom Kinect port” on the back that looks like an HTC-style ExtUSB port, and it also seems like the power supply has moved inside the case, a new one from Xbox 360.
The New Xbox 360 Slim is worth $299 and shipping will start today for the retailers and maybe available for gamers later this week. In Europe however, the New Xbox 360 will be there on July 16, so don’t worry! The original Xbox 360 Slim will still be sold as long as there are stocks but they won’t be manufacturing anymore of them.
