The lights are on
Update: Microsoft has released high-res images of the new 360 console. Check them out in the media gallery below.
Original Story: Microsoft kicked off its E3 press conference by revealing a newly redesigned Xbox 360, along with some bonuses for Xbox Live Gold subscribers.
Microsoft's Yusuf Mehdi didn't say much about the redesigned Xbox 360, other than that it's smaller and sleeker than the Xbox Slim, and that it is available for purchase starting today. Mehdi also announced that Xbox Live Gold members will be receiving two free games per month starting in July, running until the launch of the Xbox One. Two of the games included for free download will be Assassin's Creed II and Halo 3.

Shouldn't this be the Xbox 3??? Just sayin'...
Tried to make it look like the new one.
I'd like to see this side-by-side with a 360 Slim.
Looks sweet but 4gb has always and will always be a joke.
Nice to see Gold members are going to start getting games even though it is only 10.
Apparently Fable 3 is part of this free games promotion. Looking under "Browse Games -> Featured -> Games with Gold" will tell you that Fable 3 is the start of the Free games promotion by Microsoft.
All future Free games, such as Halo 3 and Assassins Creed 2 in July, will be found in this location on the Marketplace.
It's like a hybrid XOne and 360. Odd.
As somone who wants to play all consoles for the next few years, this seems like something I could purchase.
Who wants a 4GB console that's awful...
Free games from 2009 and 2007?! Way to go Microsoft! Sony is offering me a free launch title for PS4 and has given me a *** ton of free games and discounts for years.
