New Xbox 360 Falcon Inbound?

According to Dean Takahashi of The Mercury News, a reputable source of Xbox 360 information, a revised Xbox 360 featuring new internal hardware is being readied to replace the ‘older’ version of the Premium console. As previously reported, the Falcon model is said to feature new central and graphics processors that are manufactured in a 65-nanometer production process, as opposed to the older 90-nanometer processors in current models, and will sport an HDMI port as standard. The new production process should ensure that new Xbox 360’s are far more reliable than previous models, and not prone to the likes of overheating and system failure which Microsoft recently acknowledged could cost the firm over $1 billion. The recent Xbox 360 price cut seems to back up Takahashi’s report, as it would appear that Microsoft initiated the move in a bid to clear its existing Xbox 360 inventory. When contacted by CVG, Microsoft offered: "Updating components is common practice within the industry. Microsoft does not comment on these upgrades."
