Xbox 360 Slim Specs: Noise Levels and Kinect Power Supply

By Alan Ng - Jun 15, 2010

Following on from our report yesterday which informed you about specs for Microsoft’s new Xbox 360 slim console, we now have a few more details to add to that – and it is good news.

As reported from Eurogamer, they confirm that the new Xbox 360 model contains a custom Kinect port. This means that Microsoft’s motion device will not require a separate power source to operate – instead it will just run through the new console.

However, those of you planning to use Kinect on the current Xbox 360 console will have to plug it in separately – so that is one disadvantage of using the older model it seems.

The good news is that Eurogamer state that noise levels during operation of the new console were ‘very very quiet’. It is no secret that the Xbox 360 sounds like a fridge after continued usage – so it will be fantastic if the new console performs as silently as Eurogamer claim.

Hopefully, we’ll bring you some analysis soon to confirm it properly. Let us know your thoughts on this.
