The new Xbox. Oh dear. It's like if Sony designed the Wii. And it even feels a little 2006! Jet black, shiny, glossy, fingerprint-y, except for the Aliens-ish vent on one side. I think I miss the old white Xbox.
Cameras? IR emitters? Natal? Kinect? Xbox 360? WTF? Give us three minutes. We can explain everything.
Microsoft President of Entertainment and Devices—that's Xbox, Zune, Kin, Courier, et al—Robbie Bach announced his retirement today. And in his exit interview with TechFlash, he holds forth on the once and future Microsoft. So Robbie: what happens now?
So much for that sub-$100 price we were all expecting. If some early prices from Swedish retailers are anything to go by, we're all going to be scrimping on the luxury eggnog this Christmas.

We're only into the second week of the year, but already we've seen thousands of gadgets and gizmos announced, thanks to CES. But what to splurge on? Hopefully our choices this year will help you out in your buying quandaries.
PopSci got an exclusive look into how Microsoft is creating a learning brain inside Project Natal to figure out just where your body is in front of your TV. It's impressive, to say the least.
No pricing, no exact date and no further confirmation on specs or games, but word came from Microsoft direct. No idea on countries either, but we're presuming US first, other territories to follow.
