Analyst Believes Microsoft Will Release Slimmer Xbox 360

Industry Analyst David Cole of DFC Intelligence has said the question of Microsoft releasing a slimmer Xbox 360 is a matter of 'when' and not 'if' it'll happened:
“I think it is a question of when not if. However, the when part is a big uncertainty … rumours have been going on for a long time. I think people were asking me the same question last year at this time. As cost efficiencies allow smaller and more reliable is always a good thing. However, you also have something like Project Natal which could also tie in with hardware redesigns."

“There are a lot of questions Microsoft must weigh internally and there are always going to arguments on both sides of the fence around timing. So I don’t know, but in our DFC forecasts we anticipated a major redesign in 2010….so I guess that was our bet.”
However, other analysts including Tom Greenwald of Signal Hill, Arvind Bhatia from Sterne Agee and Broadpoint AmTech’s Ben Schachter don't agree.
