    Instead of posting crazy long posts and new articles all the time I will collect all the interesting news about the Microsoft E3 2010 Media Briefing in this article. Refresh to see if anything new was added :lol:
    Feel free to post interesting links/video/etc in the linked forum thread.

    In (very) Short:
    * Microsoft introduced a new glossy-back Xbox 360 console. "Sleeker, "leaner" and "whisper-quiet" according to MS. Comes with build-in 802.11n WiFi and a 250gb from the same price as the current 120GB 360 (299usd). Ships to retailers today, available in stores this week (US-only, rest will get it later (mid-July for EU?) apparently).
    * Kinect (ex-Project Natal) coming November 4th in the US (worldwide before the end of 2010) with 15 games at launch. Will work on all 360 consoles. Live demos of games and menu navigation (with new simplified dashboard) shown on stage. Kinect doesn't just detect body gestures, but also voice-commands. No pricing announced.
    * ESPN deal. Watch ESPN shows and events in HD. Free for all (US?) LIVE Gold members.
    * All CoD DLC content will come out on Xbox LIVE "first" for the next 3 years.
