Wave Goodbye to Glossy Xbox 360s

Microsoft said all Xbox 360 consoles will soon ship with a matte finish, ditching the gloss finish first used for the slim models introduced last June. The 4GB unit currently uses a matte finish.

"We are actively transitioning all our Xbox 360 S consoles to a matte finish," said Xbox Live's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb. "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."

Hryb notes Microsoft may continue to use the gloss finish for Limited Edition units, such as with the upcoming Gears of War 3 and Star Wars consoles.
