Slim Xbox 360 seen, Project Natal now called Kinect

Microsoft let details slip early

Microsoft may have let slip some of its E3 plans early, including a redesigned Xbox 360, through a series of posts and ads. International gaming sites such as Console Tribe briefly showed ads this evening of the rumored slim Xbox 360. Apart from being smaller, the new design has an angular shape reminiscent of the X logo and is more than just the smaller, cooler-running model hinted at earlier. The ads point to it having built-in Wi-Fi for the first time, saving a costly adapter, and making 250GB the standard capacity.

Whether or not it would drop in price isn't known.

Both the ads and a prematurely posted article have, however, confirmed that Project Natal will be called Kinect in its final form. Pricing and ship dates for the camera-based motion controller are unlikely to be shown until at least Microsoft's E3 keynote tomorrow, but four games -- the pet game Kinectimals, driving game Joyride, Kinect Sports, Kinect Adventures, MTV's Dance Central and unnamed games from Disney and LucasArts will be part of the mix. Kinect should be useful outside of games and will be useful for at least Netflix and other major features on the Xbox. [via Kotaku]
