The Xbox 360 has been around for some time now, so following the revamp from Sony of its PS3, it's only natural that Microsoft would want to get in on the re-invigorating action for its console, boosting sales and fixing a couple of issues along the way. In steps the new Microsoft Xbox 360, or as some call it the Xbox 360 Slim or as the name on the back of the console itself refers to it, the Xbox 360 S.
Before we talk about the new slim console, it's probably worth just noting what you get in the box. In short you get virtually nothing that isn't core to the unit. Yes, there is the console, the power pack, a controller and a headset, but there is no way of actually connecting it to your TV. You'll need to bring the HDMI cable yourself.
Now that we've got that out of the way the first thing you'll notice about the new console is the size. As you might expect, it's now considerably smaller. Not Nintendo Wii small, but reduced enough that at the Microsoft press conference at E3 in Los Angeles, Microsoft hid the new Xbox 360 inside the old model before the big reveal. Incidentally the same trick Sony performed when it launched the slimline PlayStation 2.
The new Xbox 360 S also brings with it a new glossy design that is even more masculine than the previous matte outings. There is nothing family friendly about this device when it comes to looks, strange considering Microsoft's gunning for a family audience with the Kinect later this year, but that doesn't mean it looks awful. Out are the rather large bulbous edges; in are stark lines, hard edges and plenty of grills.
Part of the new design is now a very large fan grill on the top (when laid flat), plus two grills/vents that engulf both sides. It's all to stop it over-heating you see - something previous models were prone to. But while that means it is considerably quieter, and we mean quiet enough that you can have it on in the background without you noticing, it also means that you can't put anything else on top of it like you could with the original design (yes that's what probably caused the overheating in the first place).
While Sony opted for a curved top with the PS3, Microsoft has gone for a flat design with air vents, and it is something you should account for in your TV stand if space is tight.
The design has also seen the front of the console cleaned up as well. The IR receiver has been hidden behind the casing, while the memory unit slots are gone altogether. You still, however, get two forward facing (hidden) USB sockets for connecting things like USB storage drives.
For those really into playing spot the difference, the DVD eject button has shrunk and become touch sensitive, while the On switch is now sliver rather than the same colour. Gone too is the Red Ring Of Death (RROD) warning sign, replaced instead with the red eye of doom.
Around the back and there is plenty of change too. Microsoft has added an Optical S/PDIF socket for audio buffs, two further USB sockets bringing the rear total to three and the overall console total to five, and a dedicated AUX socket to power Kinect for Xbox 360. Besides that there is an AV socket, an HDMI socket for connecting to your TV, Ethernet and of course the power. There is now also a Kensington lock so you can bolt it to something rather than having it nicked when someone comes to burgle your house. As before the hard drive is fully replaceable and rather than a big clunky thing sticking out of the side.

Absolutely fantastic. Addicted to BF3, far better than PS3. Whereas PS3 is free online, the lag problems and the wait for games compared to instant play of Xbox Live makes it well worth the money of Xbox live and using the kinect is fantastic.

I bought this for my son's Bday present. He loves it, but find the games very expensive. So we haven't really tried it out fully yet. The game he has plays great. just need a kinect to go with it. The machine is well built and great to look at.
