Released by Microsoft’s bee-loving viral marketer Ourcolony, SPOnG can confirm that this image is indeed a close-up of the Xbox 360 hardware, with the shot debunking the *Internet’s Wrong News Service’s report that a white case was to be employed.
It is, as you can see, silver casing that has been opted for. Close, but no cigar.
SPOnG has had the image verified by publishing sources privy to the final design as being genuine. This isn’t a red herring, it is a close-up of the final 360 design.
Expect more soon, including the official unveiling of the machine, a trailer for which you can see here
on SPOnG.com, as it breaks.
* You know who you are.
