MS confirms the true name of New Xbox 360, it's just 'Xbox 360 250GB'

Forget Tesco's and other retailers calling it the Xbox 360 'S', forget MS's support page calling it the 's' too, forget those others calling it the Xbox 360 Slim, the true market name of the new Xbox revision is simply the 'Xbox 360 250GB'. That's the word from a MS PR specialist at Microsoft's entertainment and devices division.

All I can is that "are you serious"? out of all names that are out there, they named it 'Xbox 360 250GB'


Danja3050d ago

well hope they dont confuse people into thinking they are selling har drives only now.

Xbox 360 Slim or S was fine

ThanatosDMC3050d ago

"Slim" would be asking for a lawsuit

Heck even the genesis had a designation when they released the revised unit. Genesis 2 and later Genesis 3.

I would prefer 360 Supreme as the designation for the "s".

@agent...not so much a face palm unless you are wanting it to be. So it has the same name as the first. PS3 slim is still a "PS3" it isnt like it should now be called the PS4.

edit: I got it...they called it 360 250gb because they are toying with the idea of releasing other capacity units later. Like ps3 60gb and 20gb and 40gb and 80gb and so on.

Off topic: I believe there will not be an "arcade" edition but there will be another 360 that may come out in a reduced capacity. Maybe a 360 120gb edition.

I think people are mistaken. The bundle is called " Xbox 360 250GB", but the actual new console itself is called "Xbox 360 S". That is at least what it looks like on this page:

That I found on that very same site.

So they're taking the Sony route?

trounbyfire3050d ago

makes me think something is wrong with adding slim if sony and microsoft don't want to use it

jay23050d ago

To most people the name screams 'Hard Drive' not console.

Um..... 0_0 ok .... This is not news


There's more excitement in a wet rag than that name.
