Xbox 360 “Slim” Is Not Real

At least the boys over at the Dutch gaming site GameKings are finding a use for their Xbox 360 HD-DVD player! As news spread throughout the Internet of a Xbox 360 “Slim” sighting (following the GameKings story), a few cooler heads helpfully pointed out that the supposed unit bares a tremendous resemblance to the ill-fated Xbox 360 HD-DVD player. By “resemblance” we mean that it actually IS a Xbox 360 HD-DVD drive.

We know that – despite all evidence – Internet rumors die hard. So, just to drive the point home, we did our own photo emulating the “proof” photo shown on Game Kings. Look familiar?
