Wish there was a price drop too.. I won't upgrade at that price.

Einbroch 06-14-2010 09:02 PM

Isn't this...really bad timing? They should launch the system with Natal or something, not phase it in like this.

Or am I wrong?

Holy balls, this will be mine!

The Bookerman 06-14-2010 09:03 PM

Is this the new Sega Saturn?... No wait a minute, this thing already has games. ;)

SpeedySwaf 06-14-2010 09:03 PM

Is their a size comparison yet?

EDIT: Beaten like a red-headed step child.

Guy Legend 06-14-2010 09:03 PM

What's going to happen to the $199 Arcade?

Fantasy Final 06-14-2010 09:03 PM

Loved the new 360. Good for those who waited E3 before buying it. And that 803.11N is sure a great addition.

RurouniZel 06-14-2010 09:04 PM

Sold. So glad I waited.

noisome07 06-14-2010 09:04 PM

day 1.

Buckethead 06-14-2010 09:04 PM

I need to see more, but might buy.

Iced_Eagle 06-14-2010 09:04 PM

MEGA TON!

Shiggy 06-14-2010 09:04 PM

How come that there was no leak from retailers?

Foliorum Viridum 06-14-2010 09:04 PM

Mine. So, so mine. :D

NullPointer 06-14-2010 09:04 PM

Tell me it doesn't have the same shitty disk drive that just killed my second xbox.

Dippindork 06-14-2010 09:04 PM

gotta find someone to buy my 360 now so i can upgrade!

firen 06-14-2010 09:05 PM

Not a fan of the design but I wish I was in that audience though. :lol

[QUOTE=Shiggy]How come that there was no leak from retailers?[/QUOTE]
Rather amazing actually.

Psychotext 06-14-2010 09:05 PM

Looks a ton better in the pic there, and hiding it inside the other 360... very clever. :lol

This week? Considering a purchase.

Diablos54 06-14-2010 09:05 PM

Depending on the U.K. price I may pick this up. I miss my 360, and the Slim looks nice. That, and wireless is always a plus. :D

Shao Kahn Brewing a Stew 06-14-2010 09:05 PM

Shitty E3 conference will be overshadowed by free Xbox. Good job Microsoft!

Jtyettis 06-14-2010 09:05 PM

That thing is sex hot.

All the whining in the leak thread. :lol

blurredvision 06-14-2010 09:05 PM

Very odd design IMO, not sure if I like it or not. However, Kudos to Microsoft for actually keeping a damn secret for once. I don't even think pics leaked out until late last night.

robot 06-14-2010 09:05 PM

and i just bought the wireless adapter for my bedroom 360. Woe is me.

VGChampion 06-14-2010 09:05 PM

I would have double dipped in a few months if they went $200. Already got the slim for $300 so no dice.

[QUOTE=RurouniZel]Sold. So glad I waited.[/QUOTE]

Waiting for 4 years just for a slim?

Think of all the games you missed out on throughout the years.

Meus Renaissance 06-14-2010 09:05 PM

I criticised this, like most, but the design from the new angles doesn't look bad at all. It's actually quite nice. If there are trade-ins I will definitely consider this.

kittens 06-14-2010 09:06 PM

Shit... $299? I was really looking forward to this, but that's a bit steep. I was hoping for $200 or $220 or something. Guess I'll be waiting till September (right before Reach).

Pein 06-14-2010 09:06 PM

my jasper and falcon are still running strong so I can't justify getting this one

Quadrangulum 06-14-2010 09:06 PM

I still think it looks lame but the price and added features are enough to sway me.

Gameboy415 06-14-2010 09:06 PM

I kinda want one, but am I the only one that feels like $299 is a way too much for a (re-designed, but essentially identical) 4-year old console?

Redbeard 06-14-2010 09:06 PM

Looks incredibly ugly and the price is still $299

WiFi is a nice addition (way late, but whatever), but this is nothing to get excited about.

I was expecting more from the slim

Pre 06-14-2010 09:06 PM

I'm not paying $300 for wireless that should have been in the original box.

thirty 06-14-2010 09:07 PM

MS has won fucking e3. holy shit.

Brewer 06-14-2010 09:07 PM

Kinda want one for the built-in wifi.
Will it be released this week in Europe as well?

Costanza 06-14-2010 09:07 PM

[QUOTE=Einbroch]Isn't this...really bad timing? They should launch the system with Natal or something, not phase it in like this.

You're right. This should've been a bundle WITH natal for $299.

Price drop with Kinect. Looks awesome.

Odrion 06-14-2010 09:07 PM

And they made it shiny as well? Ugh. :lol

KaYotiX 06-14-2010 09:07 PM

BUYING!!!!

MomoPufflet 06-14-2010 09:07 PM

Seeing it next to the original 360, I actually really like the new one.

Cday 06-14-2010 09:07 PM

[QUOTE=NullPointer]Tell me it doesn't have the same shitty disk drive that just killed my second xbox.[/QUOTE]

Judging by that conference it doesn't seem Microsoft actually intends us to play games so I doubt they care about improving disc drives.

Elios83 06-14-2010 09:07 PM

What about the Arcade and Elite?
Both discontinued?

Kandrick 06-14-2010 09:07 PM

At least, it looks better than in that leaked ad.

RurouniZel 06-14-2010 09:08 PM

[QUOTE=VGChampion]Waiting for 4 years just for a slim?

I didn't miss much, I already own Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey. I bought a 360 to play those and then promptly sold it to wait for a newer (hopefully RRoD free) model.

Looks like I made the right decision.

MikeE21286 06-14-2010 09:08 PM

looks better than the original obviously.....waiting for a Kinect bundle to get a Slim though.

Medalion 06-14-2010 09:08 PM

I already has a 360 phat, this news is meh... never liked wireless anyways. And it's not that smaller for me to care. Maybe if I get another red ring...

Psychotext 06-14-2010 09:08 PM

It's on gametrailers now. It looks much better in video.

HDD is inside in a compartment.

ACE 1991 06-14-2010 09:08 PM

Boom. I may have to buy that...

McHuj 06-14-2010 09:08 PM

For 299, it needs a bluray player to justify that cost. imo, if Sony drops the price, xbox is in trouble.

outunderthestars 06-14-2010 09:08 PM

Holy hell. I kept watching the table with the current 360, expecting him to pick up the slim and place it next to it, then my jaw dropped when he uncovered it instead.

My 360 was destroyed in a flood a couple of weeks ago, so this is perfect. :)
