So the black Xbox 360 rumor is as old as the day is long, but now it looks like an actual, reputable publication (with sources and everything!) has confirmed its existence. April’s Game Informer says that we can expect a black Xbox 360 with a 120GB hard drive and built-in HDMI out in late April for $479. So that means, compared to the current premium edition, you’ll be paying $80 for 100 more gigabytes, a higher end video connection and a new coat of paint. That’s not a bad deal at all, but the omission of a built-in HD DVD drive is curious. (Apparently, HD DVD isn’t “proven” enough to warrant its inclusion.) Score one for the Blu-ray capable PS3?
