Microsoft slips plans for red Xbox 360

Red Xbox 360 inbound

Microsoft is preparing to sell a red-colored version of its Xbox 360 console, a company memo has inadvertently revealed. Sent to retailers and the press in New Zealand, the memo nominally revolves a special promotion in which gamers will gain a free copy of Halo Wars if they buy a 360 between February 26th and March 26th; the game will otherwise cost $100 NZD. Also mentioned, however, is that the bundle "does not apply to the Red Xbox 360 Elite console which is exclusive to EB games."

No red 360 has been formally announced by Microsoft, and the company normally sells the Elite only in black. It is thus uncertain when the red console will become available, and whether it will ship outside of New Zealand and/or to other retailers beyond EB Games, such as parent business GameStop. The Elite is Microsoft's most expensive console, equipped with a 120GB hard drive and HDMI output.

    Err

    Wasn't the "red ring of death" a bad thing? Or am I getting my pantones confused?

    Anyway, damn ugly looking.

    Haha

    Yea, that red is like happy red. And no your Pantones are on the right track.

    I thought that they were going to release a red 360 with Res. Evil 5. At any rate it should be a darker red. IE - Burgundy, Blood, or Wine Red for that matter. Unless this is going to be an arcade "Family" version.

    It's cool though, I'm happy with my Elite, and have no need for Halo Wars. The demo was fun for the first 15-20 minutes or so.
