The black Xbox 360 rumour mill, already ablaze with poorly Photoshopped imitations, is now in full spin. A banner advert by US retailer Best Buy appears to show a leaked product shot of the home-cinema-blending box.The thinking is that, unless someone in its marketing department got very creative, it can only be a shot somehow handed to Best Buy by Microsoft – perhaps for compiling its Christmas catalogue?We’re not convinced just yet, especially as a black Xbox can be produced just by reversing the colours in Photoshop, but it has set fans wondering if the much anticipated PS3 spoiler could be just around the corner. With news that the HD DVD add-on is also on its way, a limited-edition black model could be all wavering PS3 devotees need to switch to the 360 this Christmas.
