    The image was found on this website as an add. But since it has been taken down. It is legitimate as I went to the site before the ad was taken down. It was this exact image and when you clicked on it, it redirected to the Italian 360 website. What we know so far:

    -250GB
    -Wi-fi
    -Compatible with "Kinect" which is assumed to be Natal

    We will find out more tomorrow from Microsoft's E3 Conference.

    I hope that's fake, as it's sodding ugly.

    I wouldn't call it "Slim" but I guess that's really the only name that can be given right now lol. It looks pretty cool though.

    Where intellect matters
    Atleast they finally included wifi in the console itself so you don't have to pay 100 bucks for the adapter.

    It doesn't matter provided it's at a good price and doesn't red ring.

    Unfortunately it is not fake. Like I said, I saw the ad for myself. I clicked on the ad and it redirected to the official Italian Xbox 360 website. Hard to believe it is fake now.

    But it's miles taller than the original, and not much slimmer.

    I guess you shouldn't judge it on a single photo though.

    The original 360 is quite ugly anyway. If you ask me it's a minor improvement aesthetic wise. What really matters at the end of the day is price and adequate system cooling.

    Agreed. [​IMG] Is the adapter actually $100?

    Not a fan of that chin?

    Official Microsoft ones are $100. I bought a used MadCatz one for around $40 and it works perfectly though.

    I don't really care if it looks fugly, how many times are you staring at the console honestly? I'm curious on the pricing and stuff, seeing as "Slim" implies "cheaper" and the top of the line models for the standard console are already only $300.

    Whilst i'm no fan of Kinect as a name it's kind of apposite for Natal.

    I dont know if its me but that doesnt looks like a case for an CPU,anyone?

    And it necessarily has to be XBOX 360 Slim? It could have any other name

    Finally Wi-Fi integrated, hope my friend buy this version and sells the one he has, I´m tired of falling with that super long cable coming out of his Modem.

    It looks sexy to me!!

    TBH, the first 360 is also sexy

    If this goes down to 250$ it will be awesome

    Shit! You're fast.
    I saw this too and was planning to post a thread 'till I saw this thread.

    The 360 Slim looks awesome. I'm so tempted by it. Since it isn't a totally new 360, I'll try to refrain from purchasing it.

    Assuming this is all real, of course. [​IMG]
