Engadget has managed to get pictures of what appears to be a new edition of the Xbox 360. Codenamed Zephyr, it is expected that Microsoft will make an official announcement this weekend as part of its CES 2007 keynote.
Engadget reports that the new console will make use of the upcoming Xbox 360 processor built on a 65nm process and in addition, Zephyr will incorporate a built-in HDMI port and a 120GB hard drive.
Damn, sounds great. So now the XBOX 360 will play back my existing dvd library in HD (720 p, 1080p or 1080i) AND will output through an hdmi cable. Can the paystation do that? The bigger HDD is likely included to imporve storage for the vast offerings on xbox live, something sony cannot touch. (Downloaded HD movies anyone?)
The list of reasons the xbox 360 is better than the paystation gets longer and longer. Mo money for the world's greatest company!
