Xbox 360 Design

Seems to fit the descriptions, but isn't an official picture.Over at designtechnica.com they have an inside source that described the upcoming Xbox 360 (but they didn't have a picture).

"Our Cali source says that the console is a sleek silver device worthy of countertop display, and features an inhaled design that turns the harsh angles of the original Xbox into sweeps and curves."

Hopefully it is easier to carry too...
There's more:

"The device will also be able to stand upright or on it’s side, much like the Playstation 2."

Could be useful...maybe.

"...the rest of the case can be customized with colorful designer face plates that pop on and off. The 360°s dashboard will also be customizable, making each console a thing totally unique to its owner. "

That part is interesting...but it doesn't sound too much like Microsoft. Wasn't it Microsoft that kept you from playing Xbox Live if you had a modded Xbox?
How about another:

Kotaku is reporting that the new Xbox 360 will probably be backwards compatible with the previous generation, and it will come in two models - including one with an internal hard drive.

This seems to coraborate with something I saw back in November: The Inquirer reported that there will be three types of Xbox 2s--one of which would be a PC.

However, there is almost no way to know if any of this is true, so don't get your hopes up. We'll have to wait until E3 or when Xbox 360 is released.
