Gallery: New Xbox 360 arrives even smaller and glossier than we realized

High-res pics of exclusive console-on-console action

8.4 seconds. That's how long it tookour new, super-shiny 360 to end up covered in fingerprints. But that may just be from all the cuddling. Is it a radical redesign? Actually, yes. Is it smaller than we thought, despite the fact that we literally stood eight inches from it after the Microsoft press event? Amazingly, that's a yes too. Are you the type of console junkie who likes to see pictures of consoles compared in size to other consoles? Great! Here you go.
