Microsoft launching redesigned Xbox 360

LOS ANGELES — The Xbox 360 is getting a makeover.

Microsoft Corp. kicked off its Electronic Entertainment Expo presentation today by unveiling a new Xbox 360 with a design inspired by its upcoming next-generation Xbox One console.

Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft’s vice president of marketing and strategy, says the updated Xbox 360 is “smaller, sleeker and as quiet as ever.” Mehdi added it would be available beginning today.

Microsoft boasted that hundreds of new games are still coming to Xbox 360, which was originally released eight years ago as the high-definition successor to the Xbox. The gaming console has outsold rivals from Nintendo and Sony for the past two years.

Microsoft debuted the Xbox One console earlier this year at its headquarters in Remond, Wash. It’s set for release later this year.
