The company showed off the new console in a half-hour special on MTV last night. The device should be in the shops by Christmas, beating rivals Sony and Nintendo which are not expected to launch next-generation consoles until next year…
The device uses three Power PC processors, a custom ATI graphics processor, and more than 512MB of memory. The graphics systems have been designed for high-definition, wide-screen televisions.
Xbox 360 will also be a central part of Microsoft’s Digital Home strategy. A DVD/CD player is built in, and USB 2.0 ports allow music and images to be loaded onto the detachable 20GB hard drive.
