Best Buy leaks Xbox 360 Core with HDMI

Best Buy X360 Core HDMI

Best Buy today accidentally confirmed the existence of an Xbox 360 Core model with HDMI through an entry at the retailer's website. The new model is incorrectly tagged with the $350 price and product shot of the standard 20GB model but has been given a new SKU and a clearly different name, suggesting a different model altogether. No apparent changes have been made to specifications, though the new model is not necessarily connected to the Xbox 360 Arcade system rumored for later in the year that would include a memory card and Xbox Live Arcade games.

If accurate, the posting would have the new Xbox 360 model ship in just over a week from the discovery of the posting, arriving in stores September 1st. Microsoft has officially dodged claims that it was producing an updated Core with HDMI output, but hasn't explicitly denied the report and said only that it had not announced any plans. Both a straightforward Core upgrade and the speculated Arcade model would be priced at the same $280 of the current, component-only game system. [via BSams]
