Xbox 360 Premium gets HDMI-ified

Rollout over time, lucky draw

Microsoft has released a new version of the Xbox 360 Premium that just had a price cut in the US to $349.99 and the new model comes with HDMI as standard, just like the Xbox 360 Elite. However, it retains its 20GB hard drive and it's still white. Don't expect to find an HDMI cable in the box either.


ShackNews got the scoopage on this one, as one of its readers sent them pictures of his newly purchased Xbox 360 Premium. Microsoft has since confirmed that it is indeed shipping a new version of the console, although it will replace the older version over time as stock of the older model sells out.


There's no word on the new model arriving anywhere outside of the US as yet, although the console in question was manufactured on the 4th of July. Nor has it been confirmed if these new consoles will feature the rumored 65nm CPU upgrade or not, but someone will surely crack one of these new consoles open sooner or later to check if this is the case or not.


For now, you can check out some picture of the new console here
