Hundreds of new games are coming to Xbox this year, Microsoft announced today at the Xbox 360 E3 conference. The gaming console is getting a makeover and is available now for purchase. 

Microsoft Corp. kicked off its Electronic Entertainment Expo presentation Monday by unveiling a new Xbox 360 with a design inspired by its upcoming next-generation Xbox One console.

Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft's vice president of marketing and strategy, says the updated Xbox 360 is "smaller, sleeker and as quiet as ever."

Microsoft boasted that hundreds of new games are still coming to Xbox 360, which was originally released eight years ago as the high-definition successor to the Xbox. The gaming console has outsold rivals from Nintendo and Sony for the past two years.

Microsoft debuted the Xbox One console earlier this year at its headquarters in Remond, Wash. It's set for release later this year.
