The new model is much lighter and comes with a much smaller power brick compared to the older version of the Xbox video gaming consoles.
There are eight games available that are compatible with Kinect, such as Kinectimals, Kinect Sports, Your Shape: Fitness Evolved, Dance Central. Also expected this holiday season are more titles, like EA Sports Active 2, Deca Sports Freedom, Dance Masters, Adrenalin Misfits; Zumba Fitness, Sonic Free Rigers, The Biggest Loser: Ultimate Workout, Motion Sports, and Game Party: In Motion
True to its name, the new Xbox 360 comes with a 260 gigabyte hard drive. The smaller Xbox 360 black design will sell for $299.
It is now available in the U.S market, and will be released in the rest of the world very soon. The Xbox 360 Slim will be available in UK stores from 16 July onwards and will be priced £199.99.
