E3 2010: Xbox 360 Slim Announced, Shipping Today

image

With a 250GB hard drive, built-in WiFi, and a sleeker, smaller design, the redesigned Xbox 360 “slim” is real … and it’s coming out, um, today. Wow.

Earlier this year, we learned that a redesigned “slim” Xbox 360 was allegedly in production. Well, sometimes rumors are completely accurate: The Xbox 360 Slim is real, and at its E3 2010 press conference, Microsoft announced that it would be shipping the units to stores …

…today.

Talk about your last-minute announcements, huh?

It comes with built-in WiFi (no more pricey network adapters!), redesigned hardware that is supposedly “whisper quiet” and hopefully much less prone to the dreaded Red Ring of Death, a 250GB hard drive, and costs the same as the standard Xbox 360 – $299. It’ll be in stores by the end of the week.

That is, unless you were lucky enough to be in the audience at the press conference, in which case Microsoft gave you one free. I am so jealous right now. It’s like Microsoft is being run by Oprah Winfrey.
