xbox 360 stories

Keep in mind these figures are subject to change, but the sources are a leaked internal memo from Microsoft and retail listing blunders, so chances are you can take this to the bank: The Kinect will find its way into a bundle with the Xbox, be sold on its own, and the new Xbox should land sometime in the fall.
Today, as rumored, Microsoft unveiled its new version of the Xbox 360. It has a bigger, 250GB hard drive, Wireless N built right in and a new design, all for the same price as the old version — $299. But here's the real question: did they finally fix the hardware issues that have plagued the Xbox 360 since launch?
It's all but official: a new, slim Xbox 360 is on the way. The news was outed by a leaked ad, but the ad itself mentioned Project Natal's change in name to Kinect before Microsoft did, so it's got a pretty big chance of being the real deal. The new design? It seems kind of, well, dated.
We're on the cusp of the biggest video game announcements of the year as the Electronic Entertainment Expo, also known as E3, is fast approaching. The flipside of that is the web is stuffed to the gills with enticing rumors. Two of those? We could get a $200 PlayStation 3 from Sony, or a redesigned, smaller Xbox from Microsoft.
