Fudzilla: What will happen in hardware this year?
It seems that always before E3 every year we have a lot of sources that are writing, Emailing and calling us with the latest Microsoft hardware news prior to the show. This year has been no different, with the exception that it seems to have gotten started a little earlier this year than last time around. We have to think that Valhalla is a lot of the reason for this. From a hardware perspective we have our best sleuths on the job and here is what our crystal ball says about Xbox 360 hardware between E3 and the end of the year.
As we reported and we have been attempting to confirm, the pictures floating around of that new Xbox 360 motherboard do appear to be either a pre-production test board or Valhalla developmental board. We think it does confirm that you will see a new revision of the Xbox 360 console this year and it will likely feature a slimmer console design. We are already tagging this revised version as the Xbox 360 Slim, so we will continue to go with that.
