No Glossy Xbox 360 Finish For You!

by on August 15, 2011

You all must have heard about the change to the Xbox 360 250GB models outer finish by now, but contrary to the belief of certain outlets, the console will not be coming in both glossy and matte versions.Major Nelson has set the record straight on his blog informing us that the new 360’s will be available in matte finish only!

“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.”

So there you have it. If your planning to update your Xbox 360 and feel repulsed by the thought of a matte finish you better put on those running shoes and get down to the shops double time!
