A source close to Microsoft has revealed to TeamXbox.com that the company is working on another edition of the Xbox 360.

"The Core Edition will drop to $250 to compete with the Nintendo Wii, while the Xbox 360 Elite will replace the Xbox 360 Premium," our source told us. "The Xbox 360 Brute will compete with the 60GB edition of the PlayStation 3."

According to our source, the Xbox 360 Brute Edition will feature a flash-based hard drive provided by Samsung with a 1 Terabyte (1000 gigabytes) capacity.

The Brute will also replace the Xbox 360 DVD drive for LGs Super Multi Blu drive, allowing the Xbox 360 to read both Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD media.

Other features of the Xbox 360 Brute Edition are built-in Wi-Fi, an Xbox 360 wireless headset and a Microsoft Sidewinder Freestyle Pro, giving the Xbox 360 a motion sensitive to compete with the Wii remote and the PlayStation 3 SIXAXIS controller.


The Xbox 360 Brute Edition is expected to go on sale this holiday season for $599.

built-in Wi-Fi

Haha, funny how this is added in like it's some outlandish feature such as the Multi-Blu drive and flash drive with 1 TB capacity.

Damn you MS. Stop reaming us up the rear for wireless.
