The new Xbox 360 console will be shipping within the week (19 June according to Amazon). Cosmetically the new console is thinner and more shiny. In other words, within a few days it will be covered in fingerprints.

But the majority of changes are inside where it matters. The console will feature built-in Wi-Fi and an internal, swappable 250GB hard drive. It is also being reported that it will be much quieter than previous models.

The sad part is that the Xbox Kinect, used to be Project Natal, won’t be available until 4 November. The Kinect is the super cool peripheral that allows you to play without a controller. It uses infrared technology to track your movements in 3D. It’s like a Wiimote without the remote part. Leaks from Gamestop have it priced at $150.
