As most Xbox fans probably already know, there have been numerous rumours circulating of a 360 slim model being released in the near future. Albeit there is no exact date, the E3 expo which is due to take place June 15-17 is the most likely ETA.
Whilst these claims have not yet been verified by Microsoft, I certainly hope they are true, as let’s face it; compared to other consoles on the market (wii, PS3) the 360 is a chunky piece of kit. To add to the flames of this rumour, it’s worth noting that a release around now would make sense as the current model is half way through its estimated life cycle of 10 years.

Jonathan Ross (British television presenter for the BBC, amongst other things) accidentally announced work on Fable 3 yesterday via his twitter account.
Wossy: “Goodnight all. Must go to bed. Got asked to do voice in Fable 3 tonight. Subarashi. Oyasuminasia. Woss out.”
ScottRhodie: “@Wossy What Fable 3!!!?!? Has it been confirmed?”
Wossy: “@ScottRhodie yes they are doing it. Charlie Brooker said he would do a voice for it to ! Great fun !!”
Wossy: “Good morning. Today i must file DVD’s, write a piece for The Times, apologize to Peter Molyneux then go Thorpe Park for SAW rollercoaster !”
Oilcan: “@Wossy Why do you have to apologise to Molyneux?”
Wossy: “@oilcan because I think I revealed something that was not officially announced yet…”
RossSanty: “@Wossy y u need to apologize to peter molyneux??? Cuz u let slip about fable 3??”
Wossy: “@RossSanty yes. No. there is no Fable 3. I don’t know. help me.”
After discussing this on various forums it has come to my/our decision that it is more likely that Jonathan Ross is actually providing voice talent to Fable 2 DLC or an even bigger expansion (much like Shivering Isles in Oblivion – or “The Lost Chapters” of the original Fable game).
Whether this is going to be an expansion or a new Fable 3 game I am very excited. Inevitably there will be a Fable 3 game, but this feels much too early to begin work on a sequel. Whatever the outcome, I cannot wait!
