The new Xbox 360 S model has always been available in two finishes: a glossy, reflective surface on the "big" consoles and a dull, matte finish on the smaller 4GB version. This Fall, that distinction gets a little less clear.

You'll soon be able to have the option of getting the larger 250GB version of the Xbox 360 in the same matte finish as the existing 4GB, meaning less obvious dust and a lot less fingerprints.

Glossy finishes are not a trend that I'd like to see continue with the next round of consoles. Not only does it look worse than a matte finish by default, but all of its appeal is negated by dust and fingerprints.

Of course, Nintendo and Sony saw fit to make their handhelds glossy and black. Yes, let's make the systems that you have to touch with your greasy, sweaty mitts all glossy. I clean my 3DS and PSP more than I play games on 'em.
