Is there a new Xbox 360 Arcade configuration released for this Spring? The XboxHacker forum seems to believe so, as they point to a new "Jasper" model that's supposedly coming with a built-in Memory Unit (MU) plus double storage capacity.
Published images of motherboards that were purportedly manufactured in Japan on April 9, 2009 then surfaced, which features 65nm CPU and 65nm GPU, plus a 4Gb NAND flash device. The 512 MB it carries easily makes it double the storage of current built-in memory units.
For now though, we're tagging this as rumor, obviously because Microsoft has yet to confirm the said units. But we're kinda leaning towards believing it's real. After all, they did say they're pushing for more DLC on the XBL. And you know you'll need more space for that.
