Earlier on today we posted an article which compared the Xbox 360 Slim with the original Xbox 360, now it only seems right to compare Sony’s Slim console with Microsoft’s.
When Sony released their PS3 Slim last year it prompted many PS3 gamers to sell their original and buy a slim, this new console measured in at just 290 × 65 × 290 mm and weighed 3.5kg.
Microsoft’s new Xbox 360 measures in at 270 x 75 x 264mm and weighs 2.9 kg, this makes it smaller than the PS3 slim, however there is still an external power brick, this is smaller and lighter than the previous power brick.
To be honest I was never bothered by the size of the first-generation Xbox 360 as it didn’t exactly make my living room cramped, however I can’t deny that I like the new design.
