Kinetic Ready?

June 18th, 2010

Ready For Kinetic?The new Xbox 360 250GB was announced at E3 this week.  In trying to figure out what this new version of hardware fixed and improved from the original Xbox 360 I noticed an unusual bullet item: “Ready for Kinect”.

My first reaction was WTF?  Isn’t Kinetic going to be compatible with all Xbox 360s?

I then started looking around the web for some detailed shots of the back panel.  Surely there would be something indicating what this was talking about.  Fortunately Major Nelson posted some pictures on Flickr, including a shot of the back:

  • Power
  • A/V
  • HDMI
  • Network
  • USB

But there were also some new ones!:

  • S/PDIF
  • AUX
  • 3 x USB

The AUX must be the Kinetic one.  Oddly it looks very similar to a USB port.  Hopefully, Microsoft will clarify the “Ready for Kinetic” aspect of the new Xbox 360 design.
