Xbox 360: New era of gaming?

Dec 5, 2010
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Stylish system, sleek controller, great online experience.

Cons:Overheating problems, loud cooling, fragile equipment.

The Bottom Line: This Power packed console may suprise you


From playing your favorite video games, to your favorite movie the Xbox 360 can do it all! Although many question whether the xbox 360 is a good system with the new system called the "PlayStation 3", if you have ever been introduced to gaming you would know that both systems are like competitors in a race and there is a lot of controversy between each gaming console.

Pro Package:
-Xbox 360 pro console

-1 Wireless controller

-20 GB (Gigabyte) Hardrive (HDD)

-Xbox 360 headset (For use during online game play)

-Set of HD-AV cables (For use on SD or HD T.V.'s)

-Manual

Xbox Console/System: The system itself is about 7.7 pounds (3.5 kg). It's full white with a stretch of "Holes" that release the hot air from out of the xbox 360. There are 10 ports areound the entire console;
-1 HDMI
-1 e-thernet port (Online game play)
-1 HD-AV
-1 Power port
-2 Memory card slots
-3 USB ports
The xbox 360's disk tray is about as long as a gaming disk with an inch to spare. The xbox can either be stood horizontally or vertically. Its a bit bulky so if you are a "on-the-go gamer" this console would not math your needs because its a bit bulky. The "outer shell" or the plastic around the console is very hard and cannot be easily broken however its still best for you now to test it out. The xbox 360 is 12.15in wide x 3.27in high x 10.15in deep and is in the shape of rectangle which is why it can be laid horizontally or vertically. The xbox has Some problems that this console has is if you suddenly bump your xbox while it is running a disk it will scratch the disk making it unplayable, so you should play xbox at a safe distance so that no movement will come to your Xbox.

Xbox 360 controller: The controller that comes with the package is White and has a battery pack on the bottom of the controller, and a microphone port located just a bit between the right stick and the D-pad. The Controller sticks are about 2 inches high and are about as round as a persons thumb to fit on. The controller has an A, B, X and  Y button. Along with a Start, Back, Left bumper, Right bumper, Right trigger, Left trigger, D-pad (Directional), Left stick, Right stick and a button located on the middle of the controller with the Xbox logo on it. The controller has con caves on the bottom so your hand has a tight grip on the controller and the material has a very smooth roughness so the controller won't slip while you are playing, it has a "W" shape but with smooth edges and is about 5.5 inches wide.

Video Quailty: The Xbox 360 is the megadome of quality coming power packed with nifty 720p enabled games, and the use of HDMI and original HD-AV cables (HDMI is preferred for the best gaming experience) but is also packed with SD cables for "weekend warrior". It provides video with crisp quality and sound, but it also depends on the game, if you are playing a game like "King Kong" although it can be played in HD quality it still isn't as good as a game engine like "ModernWarefare 2" the difference in the range of quality is very noticeable on the other hand if you are playing in SD (Standard Definiton) there isn't much difference on games, but it is recommended to play in HD for your best gaming experience. REMEMBER that the quality is affected by many things such as your T.V. or the game you are playing.

Cords/Cables: The package comes with a HD-AV cable and power cable, with a power block. Although I couldn't find the dimensions of the Xbox's power cable it is long enough to be able to connect to any  of the nearest power surge of wall unit. The AV cable is also long enough to connet to your television or montior. All the cords are a pastel grayish color and not to bright so you may want to be careful of any loose wires.

Online Gameplay: The Xbox's online dashboard is very easy to browse and any downloads are easily accessible to anyone, and your online experience will really surprise you. Although the cost of playing online is about 50$ a year and 8$ a month, although the PS3 contributes to a free online experience The Xbox has faster browsing and downloading, and there are a way less bandwith and connection problems. You can party up and talk or play with your friends or do both! Its great for anyone of all ages!

Problems: There are many problems that surround the Xbox but many of them are from overheating of the console, melting any essential components in the Xbox. The support for the xbox is alright although they seem to hire many foreign workers and they don't seem to understand your problems to well.
