Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Microsoft no longer making old 360 consoles!

http://www.joystiq.com/2010/06/14/microsoft-no-longer-making-current-360-console/

Microsoft has confirmed during its post- press conference / mass console giveaway "media roundtable" that it is no longer manufacturing the original Xbox 360 hardware in any form. A Microsoft representative has told Joystiq that the now-outdated machine will continue to be sold until stock runs out, but, after that, slim is totally in. Sure, you could get a discounted 360 before the slimmer model arrives at the end of the week -- but really, who'd do that after checking out the snazzy photos in the gallery below?

Well hopefully this will be at least as relyable as the Arcade version, if not more so. I wonder what chipsets are being used.



A flashy-first game is awesome when it comes out. A great-first game is awesome forever.

Plus, just for the hell of it: Kelly Brook at the 2008 BAFTAs

i wonder if this new 360 will start outselling ps3 worldwide again. 

fingers crossed



Not a 360 fanboy, just a PS3 fanboy hater that likes putting them in their place ^.^

So what if my current xbox rrods (something that will happen soon since 3 red rings popped this week...) ... will they send a slim one ?

If anyone finds out the answer to this question could they let us know. I'll find a way to Red Ring my 360.



Love the product, not the company. They love your money, not you.

they will likely either fix your own console and return it to you, or provide you with a refurbished 360 of the same model.

its not like they were handing out new consoles previously when they went in for repair.

Hear that everyone?

RROD your consoles to get the slim and screw Microsoft out of your money.



If they have a refurbished one they will send that out to you. Otherwise it will take a little longer and repair yours. Not a chance they send you a new Xbox 360 S



Its libraries that sell systems not a single game.

i want this new 360 

is so sexy
