Xbox 360 pics

So last Thursday Microsoft had a marketing orgy to “announce” that they will be shipping the Xbox 360 .. sometime later this year, probably before the holiday season.
Lots of technical info that had been floating around was finally, concretely confirmed, causing many rumour sites to close their “Xbox 360 rumours” sections.

The ‘360 will have 3 “G5-based” CPUs running at 3.5 GHz.
A nice trick, given that Apple’s fastest G5 runs at 2.7 GHz.
But then again, Apple is shipping hardware *now*.
Maybe Macs will be over 3 GHz by the end of the year?

It was also confirmed that the new Xbox will still be able to play that vast library of existing games (which has to be more than 1/4 the size of the Playstation 2’s).
I can hear the kids pleading for this thing already.
