A press conference and a separate event for Natal. Though they aren't calling the natal event a press conference.

So someone claiming to be (but for some reason unable to use the original blogspot account and thereby verify that it is the same person) Surfer Girl (a rumor blogger that was already operating at something below 50% accuracy at her best) has posted (extremely vague) rumors about Microsoft's E3 (including one outright factual error and otherwise very vague material quite close to what you'd get as an aggregate opinion if you asked GAF.)

Did I miss anything?

Love me some surfer girl.

I'll be a little surprised if they do announce it at E3. I was thinking more like August around the time they like to do official price cuts, but perhaps they will lower the current SKUs before that even. We shall se.

Marketing:

  • Name: 360+ or 360plus
  • Audience: Will shift towards the 'cool' casual user - XBLA, Zune Video Store, Social network stuff will be more important than ever.
  • Corp Strategy: It might also play an important if not a keyrole in MicroSoft's Cloud-Computing strategy (as the main access point from the living room).
  • Boxart: Even boxarts will get a redesign to make it easier to differentiate between a standard 360 and a 360+(Natal) game
  • Color: They will probably ditch green as their main color and switch to someting like orange. That could be one of the boldest move towards a complete rebranding of the current Xbox devision.
  • Release: November '10, worldwide.
  • Price: $199 - $249 - $299 including Natal (which will be about $80)

Guts:
  • Disc drive: Slot loading.
  • Cooling: Very small and few fans or completely fanless.
  • Storage: Either MicroSoft goes with SSD (starting from 32GB as a starter model) or with traditional harddrives (starting from 120GB).
  • Wireless: 801.11n build-in

Hardware:
  • Size: Roughly the size of the current model but half the height (think of those slim BR players).
  • Power brick: Yes, there'll be one - somewhat smaller though.
  • Design: It'll look nothing like the current model - designwise it goes with Natal and vice versa.
  • Dashboard: New dashboard design (also coming to the current model) to become Natal friendly.
  • 3rd party (non-game) Apps: Most likely not, but you can never know.

MS will reveal a slim 360 natal bundle at one of their two (yes, two) press conferences at this year's e3.

Wow, they worked out that Microsoft will probably have a Natal bundle. Well aren't you special.

And why do they say "yes, two" like that's something they've just found out? We've known this for months.

What's more the 360 will be getting a subtle rebrand, with a new logo and black as the new primary colour of the console. They feel that the new system needs to be black because a white Natal wouldn't sit well next to the typical gloss black tv.

a white and a black Natal camera. Saying the a new console is going to be black isn't much of a stretch since there's already a black 360.

The new system design is pretty neat.

And Natal? Let's just say you'll probably be both very surprised and very pleased by one of the games revealed... what is it?

information overload
