Microsoft makes slim Xbox 360 official: 250GB, Wi-Fi, $299

MS Xbox 360 redesign ships this week

Microsoft ended its E3 keynote in grand fashion on Monday as it unveiled a completely redesigned Xbox 360. The new model is significantly smaller, quieter and thinner with a 'kink' reminiscent of the X logo. It's now also heavily upgraded with a 250GB hard drive as standard and built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi.

Notably, the hard drive is now inside the console rather than in an outside module. Microsoft hasn't said if and how upgrades are possible.

The console comes only in black and will be in stores this week for the same $299 as the outgoing 120GB Elite model. The conventional 120GB system will still exist for $199 while the Arcade will drop to $149, though it's not yet confirmed if these are clearouts or permanent options.
