Steve Ballmer made a visit to the University of Washington on the 5th to talk about the importance of cloud computing. While he was there he hinted at a possible smaller form factor Xbox 360 and different pricing points for them. Here is a quote from Ballmer:
For that big screen device … there’s no diversity. You get exactly the Xboxes that we build for you. We may have more form factors in the future that are designed for various price points and options, but we think it’s going to [be] important. (Source: Engadget)
Now who would’nt want a smaller more slim Xbox 360, the Xbox can finally compete with the new PS3 Slim. Now, What would Microsoft charge for the new Xbox, who knows but I would pay it. Also don’t forget Microsoft has Project Natal comming soon to Xbox 360, could they include the hardware with the new system? That would be pretty sweet to be able to get an Xbox with the hardware integrated and not have to worry about the bar that the Wii has. I am excited to see the new Xbox 360, heres to hoping.
