Many customers when they think of the somewhat new and certainly redesigned Xbox 360 consoles think of the new design that has a glossy outer shell. Sadly, this will no longer be the case, as Microsoft has announced through a blog post from Major Nelson that the console will soon be offered only in the matte finish. Currently, the 4GB version is the only rendition of the Xbox 360 to come configured with this finish, but as Microsoft has stated, all Xbox 360 consoles will now be featuring this design in the near future. The company has said that there will probably be limited editions of the glossy console in the future, but that no date is planned out as of right now. Nelson has also stated that the stock in stores will take a bit to completely be exchanged, so for all of the customers wanting the glossy version of an Xbox 360, now is the time to go our and make that final purchase.
