Microsoft Xbox 360 Slim Pricing And Details Official Photos Released

By on June 14, 2010

Late to the party or fashionably late? Microsoft has officially unveiled the Xbox 360 Slim. Its a shiny black, sleek piece of hardware. It looks straight out of a sci-fi movie. The console will be available later this week in stores and at the normal pricing for the current (now older) model. The console will come with a 250 gig HD and Wireless N. The new look will match with the Kinect unit pretty well.
