Microsoft has confirmed a newly designed Xbox 360 will be available from today, and announces two new games.
The big M confirmed the new console at its press conference at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles.
Although sporting a new look, the new console doesn't feature any new internal hardware. That new look ties in more with the styling of the Xbox One with flat sides and a combined matt and gloss finish that runs round the front and sides.
Also announced with the new console are two new games. Max: The Curse Of Brotherhood is a platformer that incorporates what appears to be Kinect control, allowing for drawing objects in the world. The story follow, as the name suggest, the story of one brother trying to find his little brother, after wishing him away for being annoying.
The other new title is a new addition tot he Dark Souls franchise, in the shape of Dark Souls II. Little about the new game was explained but it looks like being a classic bit of hack and slash fun.
Finishing of the Xbox 360 related news was the announcement of a new Xbox 360 edition of World of Tanks that will incorporate Xbox Live integration and Xbox controller optimised controls.
Microsoft also confirmed that Xbox Live subscriptions would carry on from Xbox 360 to the Xbox One and that buyers of the new Xbox 360 would get two free new games, with options including Assassin's Creed II and Halo 3.
