Xbox 360 XNA System

Microsoft has shown off a new-look Xbox 360 for XNA developers at the currently ongoing Game Developers Conference, which differs from the run-of-the-mill consoles on the technical side with double the standard RAM at 1GB. Otherwise, the black exterior with blue chrome accents has special etching on it that indicates this system is meant for software developers, who often need the extra memory for unoptimized game code. Its bundled controller also matches the new color scheme.

The green ring of light is also tinted in blue on this version of the popular gaming console. The XNA version of the Xbox 360 will be available to registered developers this summer, though no pricing information has been announced. [via MTV Multiplayer]
