New look for Xbox 360: smaller, sleeker and available now


Whether you’re updating your Xbox console system or have waited this long to get one, the newest Xbox 360 will satisfy the gamers in your life.

Xbox 360, which has sold more than 76 million consoles worldwide, has a sleek, more compact design that aligns with the new Xbox One family.

“Xbox 360 offers unrivaled value — with more great games, an Xbox Live community with 48 million members, and a compelling lineup of apps, sports, movies, TV and music,” said Yusuf Mehdi, marketing and strategy, Interactive Entertainment Business, Microsoft. “We’ve taken all we have learned these past eight years and engineered a new Xbox 360 console that is elegant and accessible to anyone. There’s never been a better time to experience everything Xbox 360 has to offer.”

And to sweeten this buy even further, every qualifying Xbox Live Gold member — new or existing — will receive two free Xbox 360 game downloads per month starting July 1 until Dec. 31, including “Halo 3” and “Assassin’s Creed II.”

And to celebrate E3 in June, Xbox Live Gold will receive a free download of “Fable III.” And if that isn’t enough, for a limited time gamers can get a Day One 12-month Xbox Live Gold membership and play “Killer Instinct: Round One,” with the exclusive Shadow Jago character, on Xbox One. Players will also receive a commemorative Day One membership card.
