  • Excerpt: In the video-game business, the stakes are high. So, the Big Three have detailed road maps and five-year plans. A new console usually remains unchanged for at least a few Christmases, save for possible software updates and minor technical variations. However, this isn't the case with the Xbox 360.

  • Conclusion: The Xbox 360 Elite is a solid system worth owning, but only if you can take advantage of its features – and if you do not currently own an Xbox 360 system. If you currently have an Xbox 360 , then you will want to pass on the upgrade as there are only a few minimal gains.
  • Pros: Large 120GB hard drive; HDMI output; includes HDMI and component cables
  • Cons: No integrated Wi-Fi or HD DVD player; DVD drive is still loud during movie playback

  • Summary: It's reached that stage again in the console war. Everyone's made their big opening salvo – now it's down to all sides taking pops at each other from the trenches by releasing add-ons and special editions. But even knowing all of that the Xbox 360 Elite is a peculiar beast.

  • Cons: Expensive, No dedicated optical out port, No remote control, restrictive hard drive transfer procedures

  • Summary: Новая версия приставки действительно даёт несколько улучшений по сравнению с оригинальной Xbox 360, выпущенной Microsoft в конце 2005 года. Но оригинальная Xbox 360 особо сильных нареканий не имела. Эта приставка доставила геймерам немало приятных минут. Жаль, что она оснащалась лишь приводом DVD.
