Why would you release a new model of console without changing to cooler running, more cost efficient hardware?

Anyone who needs a replacement will buy one of these and a lot of people can't afford consoles when they first come out and so what until just before the next gen before buying in to it. You may be all in to the very latest machines and games but they are expensive and the new games are often woeful. Buying now means they have a massive back catalogue of games and they know exactly which games are good and which are not. Not to mention the extensive range of pre-owned titles available.
Releasing the new model also helps them to not feel so left behind when the next gen comes out, it's almost as a little brother rather than a completely outdated system.

As for changing to cooler and more efficient hardware, unless you are talk about the actual cooling system then everything else requires extensive testing to make sure everything is compatible with the old system. Software for current and previous consoles was very specific, you can't just rip out some of the hardware and change it, the very architecture of the software is for that specific hardware. Even changing to a smaller manufacturing process would still be expensive and require huge amounts of costly testing. So in the end it just isn't feasible.

I actually like this design and think that it suits the Kinect far better than the older models. At the right price I think this would be a good buy for a year or two while the XBox One is released and then settles down.

-All the same hardware... in a different case? Yawn. Suppose if you hadn't bought a 360 by now and like the design it's nifty.

-Two games announced! The Kinect version of Kirby: Canvas Curse and a multiplatform title also being released on PS3 and PC. Yawn (despite being super hyped for Dark Souls 2 on PC).

-Two free games! Probably the most exciting aspect, makes it a smarter buy for those on a budget who have held off for so long. Not exactly the most exciting games choices named, both are older and both are sequels but what can a person really expect for free.

Because they are probably spending 99% of their console time on the xbox one.

Because the xbox one will be $499, the xbox 360 is less than half that.

I thought the title was an ironic piss-take of the Xbone.
