Microsoft has confirmed reports that it plans to launch a new Xbox 360 model - and revealed that it will begin shipping to retailers in the US this week.
The new Xbox 360 will feature a removable but internal 250GB hard disk, an internal 802.11n Wi-Fi adapter and the same price point as the current top-end 360 - $299 in the US. Apparently it's "whisper quiet" too. Uhuh.
Microsoft has said that it will be released in Europe on 16th July, where it cost Ł199 / €249 and come with a wireless controller and 360 headset.
Check out the first photographs of it elsewhere on Eurogamer.
