What is Xbox 360?: Xbox 360 is the most powerful next-generation gaming system. Featuring high-definition (HD) graphics and multichannel digital sound, Xbox 360 heralds the new era of gaming. As the centerpiece of your entertainment experience, Xbox 360 allows you to integrate music, movies, photos and TV choices into game scenarios through a Windows-based PC or any Universal Serial Bus (USB) peripheral. The new Xbox experience allows users with Xbox LIVE service to personalize their entertainment with avatars, challenge and talk to friends, stream 15,000 Netflix movies and TV shows, and download new content including demos and games. Xbox 360 offers the best HD entertainment options with the greatest games, and it offers both right now.
Digital entertainment: Amplify your music, photos, video, and TV. Watch progressive-scan DVD movies right out of the box. Rip music to the Xbox 360 Hard Drive and share your latest digital pictures with friends. Make the connection, and Xbox 360 instantly streams the digital media stored on your MP3 player, digital camera, Media Center PC, or any Microsoft Windows XP 2005 Edition-based PC. Plus, if you have a Netflix account, you can instantly access tons of on-demand movies when you link your account to your Xbox Live Gamertag (requires Xbox Live Gold Membership)!
Games: Xbox 360 redefines what games look like, sound like, feel like, and play like to engage you like never before. Every Xbox 360 title supports 720p and 1080i high definition resolution or 480p standard definition resolution, in 16:9 widescreen, with anti-aliasing so you enjoy smooth, movie-like graphics and multi-channel surround sound. Vibrant characters display depth of emotion to evoke more dramatic responses, immersing you in the experience. Plus, Xbox 360 is home to the best, highest-rated and most varied library of games for everyone to enjoy. Now Xbox 360 offers more choices than before with blockbuster titles, Xbox LIVE Arcade games, and community games on Xbox LIVE. With a hard drive attached, Xbox 360 is backward compatible, allowing anyone to play their favorite original Xbox games. In addition to looking and sounding fantastic on standard definition TVs, all Xbox 360 titles perform in HD for smooth, movie-like graphics and multichannel surround sound.
Family Settings: The new, more robust Family Settings features in Xbox 360 help parents control the online and offline game experiences of their children by selecting whether they can play online and whom they play with, and by locking the console to play only games that meet a certain rating. The Family Timer also helps parents regulate what kids play and for how long.
HDMI Ready: The console includes an HDMI output, so you can experience your games in the highest definition possible, up to 1080p (HDMI cable sold separately).
The New Xbox Experience: Xbox LIVE connects you to friends, family and the world’s largest online entertainment center, allowing you to play games, watch movies, and share moments on the couch or around the world.
this is very good for playing and makes body to burn calaries my kids and even we plays a lot good exercise
i have this model of the xbox 360 and its great, i like still being able to use it on older TV's and newer ones too, but i wish i had bought the next model up so i could also use it in HDMI. so if your going to buy your first xbox 360, i suggest the new models since they cost almost the same as these older ones.
the best thing i ever bought!!!
I'd buy it again1/12/2009
I'm a first time player with the xbox 360 System, but so far I have no regrets with this item; I find it easy to play; it takes some to time to get use to the way the control has been set up, but its worth to try it if you are looking for a system wich has too many options to choose from. Highly recommended item.
