Xbox 360, amazing experience at your hands
Millions of fans of console video gaming all over the world welcomed Xbox 360 with one of the hottest hugs possible: amazing sale figures in just few hours after its initial release. But the real question remains, was Xbox 360 worth that entire buzz? Does the 360 live up to the high expectations of the addicted gamers all over the globe? Well, it appears that even if the Xbox 360 doesnít score a bullís-eye 10/10, it definitely was not far from achieving that.
Well, the first thing to learn about Xbox 360 is that it comes in 2 packages; the Xbox premium witch is priced at 400$ and the Xbox basic witch you can get for something close to 300$.
The basic package contains the completely new Xbox 360 console, a wired controller as well as the basic version of the Xbox Live service. Now, for about 100 extra bucks you will get many more things; this is something that will probably turn the majority of buyers towards the premium package.
The premium bundle will provide you with the 360 console, a wireless controller, TV linking cables, a portable 20GB HDD and headphones. Additionally, this Xbox is fully backwards compatible with the games of the original Xbox; this means that you are able to play the games you already have from the original Xbox! Of course, you will also be given a basic subscription for the Xbox Live service too. Look closely at the differences of the 2 packages; was I wrong when I said that the majority of gamers would prefer to add 100 extra bucks and get the premium pack?
Straight for the meat now! The new Xbox is completely redesigned, with elegant, chic lines and light, beautiful coloring. The overall design is probably what would come out as a result of cooperation of Hummerís & Porscheís designers; I think Microsoft has done a great designing job. Regarding the core of the Xbox, its computational power, the graphics of the new games can speak for themselves. Amazing, curved surfaces, vivid backgrounds and detailed characters bring games as close to reality as possible. As a matter of fact, the 360 features an IBM PowerPC processor and a powerful graphics card by ATI.
The new Xbox 360 is also more family-friendly in the sense that it comes with a built in CD and DVD player. You can always listen to your favorite music while playing a game or you can watch a DVD along with friends or family in your HD TV screen.
I believe that Xbox 360 has too much potential; especially when the Xbox Live community will expand and there will be more blockbuster titles available. The brand new 360 definitely stands up to the expectations and the best has yet to come.
