All new Xbox360 consoles will be matte

August 15, 2011 • Gadgets and Gaming

Microsoft revealed last week that a matte finish Xbox360 Slim will be available in stores soon, but it has come to light that gamers won’t have a choice between a matte finish and a glossy finish.

Xbox Live’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb took to his blog to inform gamers that the new matte finish will be rolled in to replace current models.

“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,” he wrote.

“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,” he concluded.
