Is this the Xbox 360 Slim?

Xbox 360 Slim

For a while now, there have been rumors circulating that Microsoft would give a physical update to their Xbox 360 gaming console. Referred to as the Xbox 360 Slim, the design has been said to be smaller, and less of an eyesore in your living room.

Joystiq (via Console Tribe) has gotten their hands on an Italian Microsoft ad of a device that looks very similar to our beloved Xbox 360. However, this one sports a new black casing with more of an angular design. The ad lists some new features in addition to mentioning its ability to work with Kinect (AKA Natal). This new version of the Xbox 360 will contain a 250GB hard drive and something which the original model should never have been produced without--built in Wi-Fi.

It makes sense for Microsoft to release a refreshed Xbox 360 alongside Kinect. Nothing about this new design seems fake. Just by virtue of the fact that the ad mentions Kinect and was outed before the Interwebs had heard of Microsoft's Natal name change also adds credibility to the new slim design. The video ad shown below has been taken from the original source, which has since pulled it off the web.
