Xbox 360 Slim by next year

All the gaming headlines recently have been Sony’s PS3 Slim, which has sexified their console so much that it’s still not being bought. Maybe that’s because it the gadget equivalent of a woman so beautiful that you just want to stare rather than risk being rejected. No? Ok.

Anyway the talk is now that Microsoft is going to copy Sony and bring out an Xbox 360 Slim, presumably to not feel left out.

‘I think it is a question of when not if,’ said DFC Intelligence analyst David Cole. However, the when part is a big uncertainty... rumours have been going on for a long time.

‘As cost efficiencies allow smaller and more reliable is always a good thing. However, you also have something like Project Natal which could also tie in with hardware redesigns.

‘There are a lot of questions Microsoft must weigh internally and there are always going to be arguments on both sides of the fence around timing. So I don't know, but in our DFC forecasts we anticipated a major redesign in 2010....so I guess that was our bet.’
