E3 2013 | Redesigned Xbox 360 Looks Like Xbox One

Published on June 10th, 2013

Newly available Xbox 360, looks exactly like .

One of the many, many, many new announcements at Microsoft’s E3 press conference was of a newly designed Xbox 360 which will be quieter and smaller than the current ‘S’ spec.

The problem is the new and improved Xbox 360 looks remarkably similar to the Xbox One, almost distressingly so as if it’s been designed to confuse would be buyers. Take a look for yourself:

It’s a no brainer for Microsoft to design the Xbox 360 now, especially with over 48 million units sold worldwide, it’s just strange that they’ve chosen a form factor which is so similar to the Xbox One. The redesigned Xbox 360 is available from retailers from July will be priced around £129.99.

Do you think are we making a mountain out of a molehill, or will these two similar boxes cause confusion in the marketplace come launch day?

      I’m going to buy one to replace my launch unit (it still works but it’s a jet engine I can’t bear anymore).

      I still think MS should have made this a digital only standalone 360 that works as a backwards compatibility module for the Xbox One if wanted. The current Xbox 360 slim is fine if you want a standalone console with DVD drive.
