We've heard a lot of rumors about an Xbox 360 Slim or a new iteration of the Xbox 360 and with Microsoft's promise that today's E3 announcement will be bigger than Natal, we had our fingers crossed for some new hardware.
Just like with the PS3 slim, the actual hardware will change very little as it will have to support all current xbox360's software and new xbox360 software will still have to support the older hardware. At best its just some more effiencent cooling and Wi-Fi on the inside.
[citation][nom]gm0n3y[/nom]Meh, that really isn't a big announcement at all. Doesn't everyone that wants an xbox already own one? Although I guess there's always the RROD people that need to buy a new one (I know I did).[/citation]
Actually i'm planning on getting a new xbox for the much larger hard drive. i still have the one i got on launch day and never had a problem except one dead game
I know people have been clamoring for wi-fi for years but I really don't know why. I have a PS3 with wi-fi but I much prefer having the ethernet than wi-fi. Of course having the option is better than not having the option but the addition of wi-fi won't make me want an Xbox 360 anymore than I did before.
My old PS3 has had this for years. It seems that the XBOX is now trying to catch up. No, not a fanboy here as my PS3 is mainly used for Blu-Ray playback. I wouldn't mind getting an XBOX as another media extender, I'm just saying... they're a little behind the times and if this is BIG news....

why waste money on a new box when you can buy a 250GB Western Digital and easily make it work on xbox? you just need to wait until they release the 250GB model for the firmware(or whatever that thing is that needs moding). Google it, you'll see how easy it is.
