    I doubt this will be called the "Xbox 360 Slim"
    mainly because that sends a nod to Sony and their naming

    Quite possibly the ugliest thing I've seen for a long time.

    It looks like a shitty PC case that Thermaltake would design as part of their 'budget' range.

    Why does Microsoft's industrial design suck so hard? The only thing I liked about the original Xbox was that it was function over form (built like a brick, they never broke and were quiet and cool). I love my 360 but it's just plain ugly (especially when compared to the PS3).

    Microsoft proved it can do better, much better, just look at the gorgeous Zune HD or Courier renders. So why don't they?

    Pro-tip Microsoft - Clean lines and non-glossy metal enclosures.

    Has anyone noticed that if you slice the slim xbox at the middle diagonal it loos like two inverted wii's? Fake image maybe?

    It looks like someone popped it into the oven to fix an RRoD and forgot to take the case off first. :)

    It's ugly, and not even slim. Fake?

    At least they've finally included wi-fi as standard, it's long overdue.

    Look at the "xbox 360" on the side of it.
    No designer would EVER place that on the side like that, all crooked.
    I say fake!... But then again, I was wrong about the first leaked pics of the i4G..

    Looks like they tried improving Ventillation to me. also like the design. On the site the picture was taken from when you clicked on the picture it brought you to Xbox Italy so I doubt its fake. Looking at the DVD tray door size its not a slim model.

    Surely a fake. It's uglier and more awkwardly shaped than the original.... and why would MS feel the need to update it now?

    It is completely real, and it's shipping to retailers TODAY. Was just on the E3 keynote.

    I can't believe they managed to keep this so hush hush, apart from the motherboard shots a couple of months ago there's been nothing.

    Haha can you imagine the smack down Sony would put on MS if it included a blu-ray player?
