With white drawing obvious parallels to mass market devices that are based on simplicity, ease of use, and family friendly content (Wii, Apple), this is an interesting marketing strategy. Perhaps market research showed that non-gamers (errr..."casual" gamers) find that black devices seem more complicated, challenging to use, and in general not as accessible.

My current Xbox is white, which is the original Xbox 360 color.

the original Xbox 360 color was not true white. It was closer to off-white.

This family bundle one looks like Wii white...

Original 360 was not black, so releasing a white slim model isn't exactly a huge change of direction.
