Review: Microsoft Xbox 360 Slim

 

When the Xbox 360 hit in 2005 it promised to revolutionize gaming. Microsoft got most of the way there (conceptually), but the original 360 hardware...

Leaner, (slightly) meaner and quieter. Inches closer to the all-in-one entertainment box we’ve been waiting for. Cosmetic touches like touch-sensitive power and eject buttons class up the joint. Thrusts overpriced accessories ( for a Wi-Fi dongle?!)...

In many ways the same console we’ve been playing since Senior Year. Inter-console data transfers still require a wonky proprietary cable

New Xbox 360 250GB review

 

When we first saw its face in a Italian ad, more than one Engadget editor called its bluff: "The top half doesn't line up with the bottom," some said,

Whisper quiet ; Energy efficient ; Integrated 802.11n WiFi

Generates more heat ; Still uses proprietary HDD system ; No hi-def playback out of the box

Xbox 360 (250GB)

 

Microsoft was the first to enter this current console-gaming generation with its original Xbox 360, a hulk of a system that beat both Nintendo and Sony to the punch. Despite the millions of Xboxes sold (or possibly because of it), the 360...

Revamped, more compact, elegant design. Integrated 802.11n Wi-Fi. Powerful 3D graphics. Excellent, diverse games library. Robust online community

Glossy shell attracts fingerprints and smudges. Although smaller, the power supply is still bulky. Still lacks Blu-ray

A still-solid gaming and entertainment experience coupled with a revamped eye-catching design, internal 802.11n Wi-Fi, and more storage make this the best Xbox 360 yet.

Microsoft XBox 360 Arcade

 

The Xbox 360 was one of the top gifts of the holiday season back in 2006 and could be again this year. Microsoft's new Xbox 360 Arcade ($199.99 list) is a stripped-down version of the game console that hits the pricing sweet spot that consumers are...

Inexpensive next-generation console. Intuitive new interface and streaming capabilities. HD gaming

Barely enough storage to upload the new OS, let alone download games from Xbox Live Marketplace. No Blu-ray drive

The Xbox 360 Arcade is a fine entry-level, next-generation console, but its lack of storage makes game play feel like that of an Atari 2600.

Xbox Aces Console Wars: Best Online Gameplay, Solid Lib...

 

Three years after the first shots were fired in Console War VI, Xbox 360 is winning the fight with the only weapons that really count: the deepest game library

Multiplayer matchmaking fills your social void with 12 million friends. Streams media from your PC

Premium Xbox Live account costs 50 clams a year. Clunky UI is terrible for navigating long lists of media

Joy Ride Turbo (XBox 360 Arcade) Review

 

Joy Ride Turbo skids onto the Xbox Live Arcade, does it get the checkered flag, or crash and burn. Come inside for the full review.

Microsoft Xbox 360 4GB Console

 

Smaller dimensions and a new look. Is it worth replacing your existing console in favour of this newer Xbox 360 console?

The new console adds useful standard features but since it is still noisy and can't use older Xbox 360 hard drives, we can't categorically say that it's worth buying if you already have an older 360. If you're looking for your first Xbox 360 console...

Best game console for online gaming

 

The Xbox 360 Slim has made a number of improvements over its predecessors, and reviewers say it is the best Xbox ever. The console has the same rich game library and excellent graphics, but it now includes built-in Wi-Fi. It also has a larger...

Excellent online gaming, extensive game collection, quieter, less prone to overheating than older models

No Blu-ray, no Bluetooth, kinect motion-control technology unusual, but limited

Futurelooks Checks Out the New Microsoft Xbox 360 S Slim 250GB Console

 

In case you didn't read my coverage of the Microsoft press conference at E3 2010 in Los Angeles, that little outfit from Redmond decided to unveil an updated version of ...

The regular proprietary AV port is there, as well as an HDMI out. One other critical difference is the inclusion of optical audio out right from the Xbox 360 itself. In legacy units, this was only possible through the special AV cable.

Microsoft Xbox 360 Console Review

 

As the first of the next generation of video game consoles, it had a lot of expectations, and people were curious as to where the bar would be set for the later consoles from Sony and Nintendo. Microsoft did a good job at setting the bar pretty high....

Microsoft knew we wouldn't have a next generation console to compare the Xbox 360 to when it came out, but that didn't seem to affect the quality of the product that Microsoft released. This is a great media console that will play amazing looking video...
