The official word on the glossy Xbox 360

The official word on the glossy Xbox 360

You may have heard last week that Microsoft is changing the outer finish of the Xbox 360 250GB consoles from a glossy black to a matte black finish, similar to the current Xbox 360 4GB model. 

Some of the news outlets that covered it mentioned having a choice between matte and glossy Xbox 360s this holiday. 

I wanted to set the record straight and let everyone know that that is not the case. 

We are actively transitioning all our Xbox 360 S consoles to a matte finish.  The consoles will start to arrive in stores over the coming weeks, so if you really love the idea of a glossy console don’t wait much longer.

Of course, we still may offer a gloss finish on Limited Edition consoles like the upcoming Gears of War 3 Console or the Star Wars Console, but if you have your eye on a glossy black console you don’t have much time left.
