Xbox 360 with HDMI True

Updated Microsoft's heavily rumored third Xbox 360 is real, according to Game Informer editor Matt Helgeson. The magazine's April issue reports that a new, top-end version of the console will ship in a home theater-friendly black and have the hardware features needed to take advantage of HD video. A now-confirmed HDMI connector would let the Xbox send audio and video to an HDTV through a single cable, including at the 1080p resolution for protected movies played by Microsoft's HD DVD add-on. Also confirmed is a 120GB hard drive to help cope with the multi-gigabyte videos from the firm's Xbox Video Marketplace.

More details and magazine scans follow after the break.

The new model won't replace the $399 Premium model, according to the story: instead, the special edition will ship for $479 and will compete more directly with the base PlayStation 3 upon its release later in the spring. The 120GB hard disk should also be available separately for under $200 in the same timeframe. [via Kotaku]
