Real-world size comparison, sent in by early-bird purchaser DigitalHero. Maybe we should call it the "Xbox 360 Shiny" instead?
MS did a better shrink job than Sony did. Simple as that really.
I wish Sony would have waited just a tad longer and then put out something quite a bit smaller. The PS2 Slim was astoundingly tiny compared to the original. THAT's how a console goes on a diet. Of course, it lost the whole HDD support thing that this gen has to deal with. But whatever.
