Microsoft Xbox 360 Review

Welcome to our Xbox 360 review. Microsoft unveiled the new Xbox 360 console on 12 May 2005 with a TV special on MTV featuring music from current rock favourites The Killers. Revealing the product to consumers first was a break from tradition, as previous launches had been behind closed doors at tradefairs. This means the consumer saw the Xbox 360 before both the Sony PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Revolution.

There are two models of Xbox 360 available. The basic console, which is known as the Xbox 360 Core Package, gives you the terminal, controller and customisable faceplate. With the Xbox 360 Premium package, you also get a 20GB hard drive, Wi-Fi adaptor and Xbox Live Silver membership.

Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

The new Xbox 360 console has a concave design and platinum white finish and can stand horizontally or vertically. It contains powerful hardware including a customer IBM PowerPC-based CPU and Custom ATI Graphics Processor to deliver the ultimate gaming experience.

Notable features of the Xbox 360 include Wi-Fi readiness (802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g) including wireless game controllers, internet readiness via Xbox Live broadband with access to the Xbox Live Marketplace for downloadable content and voice chat with other gamers, ability to play most formats of DVD and CD, and support for high-definition games and video.

Xbox 360 contains three IBM PowerPC processors, with each clocked at 3.2GHz, with each core having an AltiVec vector engine. ATI's R500 chip provides the graphics sub-system.

The Xbox 360 will be backwards compatible with existing Xbox games. You'll still be able to play your favourite games from the existing Xbox such as Halo 2, Project Gotham Racing and Burnout and play these games against others through Xbox Live. The console will launch with a line-up of approximately 20 games, some of which will already be familiar to game fans.
