Xbox 360 Slim Is Leaner, Meaner, Quieter Machine

 

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 wasn't without its … quirks. Enter Microsoft's upgrade/redo, the Xbox 360 S. Not only is the chassis...

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 S (250GB)

 

Microsoft kick-started the "next-generation" of gaming on November 22, 2005, when the company released the Xbox 360, beating both Nintendo and Sony to market. Since then, the console has sold roughly 40 million units worldwide and has brought some...

Sleeker design; 17 percent smaller; much quieter operation; better cooling; touch-sensitive power and disc tray; 250GB hard drive; built-in Wi-Fi; five USB ports; dedicated Kinect port; onboard optical digital audio

The hard drive is still proprietary; controller on D-pad remains unchanged; cumbersome power block; renders existing faceplates useless; no cables for HD gaming out of the box

Though the new Xbox 360 certainly addresses most of the concerns we've had with the versions before it, we don't think it warrants a purchase if you already own an Xbox 360 in working order with an HDMI-out port and a hard drive.

Microsoft Xbox 360 Slim

 

It has been four and a half years since the original Xbox 360 was released on November 22, 2005. New bundles have come out, hard drives for consoles have jumped in capacity exponentially, and there is even a black model of the 360 out there, but at its...

Good price point ; Includes a 250GB hard drive ; It looks cool, and it is smaller than the original ; It is much quieter and runs cooler ; Built in WiFi

An odd way to remove the hard drive that could potentially cause problems ; No HD connectivity without additional purchase ; No Blu-ray player ; The fancy shine is easily smudged with fingerprints

A new sleek, smaller, quieter design with built in wifi give the Xbox 360 a much needed overhaul.

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

Check out our review of the new Microsoft Xbox 360 Slim.

HD Content; User interface; Mass market appeal; Seamless online connectivity

High price point; Needs a killer app; Demands an HDTV; Dodgy backwards compatibility

Bill Gates' pride and joy comes highly recommended to those who have an HDTV and cash to burn.

Harmonix brings the beat back with bonus time travel, but is Dance Central 3 the best reason to own a Kinect?
