Bright Hub writes: "Chief among the many surprises at this year's E3 was Microsoft's announcement of a new Xbox 360 console. The console itself has been rumored for months now, but the surprise came when it was announced that the new system would be shipping immediately, and available in stores by the end of the week.
While it wasn't on par with something like the Sega Saturn's surprise launch at the first E3, the immediate availability of the new console certainly took some of the wind out of Sony and Nintendo's sails at the conference.
So, what's different? Gamers are always quick to jump on the bandwagon and rush out to purchase something new, but are there enough new features in this new version of the 360 to warrant trading in your old box?"
