Take A Peek At What’s Inside The New Xbox 360

Sure, everyone’s talking about the Xbox One this week. But it’s not the only new piece of Xbox hardware MIcrosoft showed this week. The tech giant also announced a newly-redesigned Xbox 360 e model, one that’s styled to match the Xbox One’s shiny/matte exterior. But what’s underneath the hard plastic shell? iFixit set out to find out.

The website — best known for open-source, user-generated repair manuals for high-end consumer electronics — peeled the outer layers of the 360 E and discovered the same cooling system as the 360 S and a hard drive that’s easier to replace. That is, it’s easier provided you buy an official Xbox 360-branded hard drive. Click on through for the full rundown of the 360 e’s guts.

    I thought the 360 S looked alright, but man this new version is ugly.

      Well, usually all those bits are glued together into a kind of box shape, which makes it look better.

        Lol, I meant the whole console, when I clicked through I saw an image of the console in its pre-breakdown state.

    Hey its the 10th version of the Xbox 360. I guess they have to keep that paper weight relevant somehow right?

    But seriously, you say everyone is talking about the Xbox One. I must have missed something? I have only seen people talking about the PS4.

    So is this bringing a price drop to the unit?

    That's funny I was thinking there would be Hopes and dreams inside
