Could we soon be loading up Gears of War and Crackdown on a black Xbox 360?This rumour's been doing the rounds for a while now but it's been given extra credence by a supposed leaked article from Game Informer magazine giving the full skinny on the new box, codenamed Zephyr.As well as the new paint job, the US leak lists a bigger 120GB, more efficient CPU and, movie fans, an HDMI slot (cue rapturous applause). Sadly it's still said to be missing built-in HD DVD (loud boos).We really hope it's true, if only to co-ordinate with our black plasma display. We should, though, point out that the so-called article is from the April edition of the mag – we'll leave you to draw your own conclusions.
