So, it's just a 360, with Natal already installed? It's not really a new console.
It's not meant to be. Kotaku and this thread's titles are slightly sensationalized. The actual quote is a "new Xbox 360." The inclusion of 360 indicates it isn't a new console, but possibly minor upgrade with Natal included. Natal is in for sure, but the earlier rumors from 1UP indicated that there would be some upgrades, like more memory. They speculated that the current 360's would still play future games, but performance might be better on the new updated Xbox Natal.
Ballmer's quote doesn't indicate such changes, but they're certainly still a possibility.
