wow.  I'm not sure it is possible for me to care less about a story than I do about this one.  

Do people really care about how thin the game console is?  All I care about is how good the games (and interface) look.

I guess it's a good thing I posted it in Off Topic, then, eh?

The Xbox 360 is one of the ugliest consoles ever made (up there with the dreamcast) so I wouldn't be surprised if they were planning a new box in an attempt to convince those of us without one to buy it.

well girls loved the ps2 when it took a slim pill, and the same goes for gba sp and ds lite, do not underestimate the marketing power of slimming.

But in the end thats all it is which is marketing ability. Either way even if they do not minaturise the xbox360, the internals will always be changed for cheaper more reliable components, if those components are also smaller then miniturisation is possible but of course it aint necessary. Nearly every console at launch has rarely carried the same components at the end of its life
