WORLD EXCLUSIVE: NEW XBOX REVEALED!

Microsoft poised to bring green Xbox to retail: get in here right now!

17:52 We can exclusively reveal that Microsoft is to bring a brand new, green version of its Xbox hardware to market.
The unit will be a retail version of the translucent green debug hardware that specialist press, developers and publishers already have access to, but which has hitherto been denied to Joe Public.

The green console, which will also release with a special green version of Controller S, will be a welcome addition to the Xbox family.

The move is yet another step forward in Microsoft's tireless marketing push that has seen Xbox overtake and pull clear of GameCube in the UK in recent weeks.

For the week ending November 10, Xbox enjoyed a 46 percent rise in sales, shifting 15,102 units, compared with 6,839 GameCubes over the same period.

The new unit should only serve to bolster this trend, an initiative that has also proved popular with Nintendo's console, which has been released in a number of different colours. The Xbox redesign is purely cosmetic, with internal specs remaining the same as current retail units.

It's currently unclear when Microsoft plans to release the new hardware: the first quarter of 2003 is looking likely, although speculation regarding a pre-Christmas launch is growing.

When contacted, a spokesperson for Microsoft refused to comment on the matter, but highly placed retail sources have confirmed to us that the unit is ready to go.

The world is turning green. The Grinch must be thrilled. Remember where you heard it first.

The new design looks better than I thought it would but I like the way the Xbox looks now too. At $342 CDN I'll stick with what I have. It is good that people will have a choice though.

I read on one of the forums here at XBA, not sure wich, that the green box will only be available in the UK. Is this true?

I might have bought green if it was available on launch. I don't need a replacement XBOX yet.

Well carlbme, looks like someone remembered yours at least.

If I do like this, and it's still the same price, then I'll probably get this and mod my old one.
