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

Microsoft Xbox 360 (250GB)

 

A compact, eye-catching design, internal Wi-Fi, and more storage make the Microsoft Xbox 360 (250GB) the best Xbox yet.

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.

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

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...

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 Slim review: Microsoft Xbox 360 Slim

 

Microsoft Xbox 360 Slim

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 Arcade

 

The $200 Xbox 360 Arcade packs the same punch as its big brothers, but to take full advantage of it you will need to buy a hard drive for the console.

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.

Internally, the Xbox Arcade is not much different from its predecessors. The Arcade features the same triple-core 3.2-GHz, 95nm IBM CPU as the other Xbox 360s—at least that's the official Microsoft line. It's a poorly kept secret that Microsoft has...

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
