New XBOX 360 4GB Model and official Kinect pricing announced
Microsoft has confirmed Kinect pricing at $150 and a new Arcade model today. The new Arcade model will sport a matte black finish as opposed to the glossy finish of the 250GB model.
The new Arcade will also feature built in wireless and 4GB of memory. It's a lot better than the 256MB embedded memory on the later model Arcades and for most gamers that won't be downloading a lot of DLC and simply need a place for saved games, it should suffice.
There's also the option of using a 16GB USB key as well. This new model will be available on August 3rd for $200.
If Kinect is something you want to get your hands on this holiday season, Microsoft has a pre-order special which bundles the new 4GB 360 along with Kinect and Kinect Adventures for $299.
Here's the official statement from xbox.com:
