TRENDING NOW: Windows 9 logo teased, with Microsoft's next OS 'coming soon'

Microsoft discontinue glossy Xbox 360s, have gone Matte and can't go back

Microsoft slash glossy Xbox 360, see the light in matte finish

| Gaming News | Posted: Aug 16, 2011 2:29 am

Microsoft are ditching the glossy outer shell on select Xbox 360 consoles for a black matte finish. Major Nelson broke the news, with a 250GB unit in glossy finish and a 4GB model featuring a matte black finish being the current models on the market. Microsoft from now on will not be continuing the manufacturing of the glossy 360, instead it'll use the new matte-finish system. There will still, however, be glossy-based 360s in the form of the limited edition Gears of War 3 console and Star Wars console.

The transition from glossy to matte has already started and the new consoles will be available in a few weeks. So if you want to get in with a glossy model, you'd better run to your nearest electronics store and get some of that gloss on, because soon they'll all be matte.
