  • Excerpt: The xbox 360 has have major improvements since the original xbox especially now with the new Kinect that just came out. The xbox 360 is just like a computer the way it operates. The games available are also on the other 2 consoles Wii and PS3. SO whatever game you want to play most likely will be on all 3 gaming consoles.

The box rocks! The accessories don't!

  • Excerpt: I was sooo excited to get this new Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Super Elite 250GB HDD Console.  I was stoked, to say the least.  I had saw that it came with 2 controllers, 2 microphones, transfer cable, the game, and a few other tid bits. Sadly, I opened the box, first thing I noticed was NO data transfer cable.No second mic either, and the one mic is colored white, not black to match the box.

Great games but high failure rate

  • Excerpt: When you buy this, you will be happy with the 250 GB hard drive to save so many game data. Built-in Wi-Fi that beats the pricey $100 Network Adapter for old models. But the bad thing is you still have to pay $60 to play on Xbox Live it's not free like PS3 or Wii. The Xbox 360 has a huge library of games you can buy but you have to drop $60 on a brand new game that's super pricey if you ask me. The most convenient idea is that for first time in 5 years it's QUIET!

Great features, when it works.

  • Excerpt: The Xbox 360 is a smooth running console with one (major) problem: the fan. The fan is so small that the unit very easily overheats, causing major problems to the hard drive and memory.  I would recommend that all users keep this product out where air can circulate around it freely to help with this problem. My Xbox has died 3 times with the dreaded "red lights of death.

Great Hardware but mostly underutilized

  • Excerpt: While Xbox360 comes with a solid hardware, it is very closely tied to the crappy live services.  Hence it is mostly underutilized. This Elite console comes with a 120gb hard drive. The price is not in comparison with what you get. Because a 1TB hard drive costs $60 on any rainy day. Paying $100 extra for the 120gb hard drive makes no sense. And I never understood the infatuation with color. Only Microsoft Elite consoles come in Black.

Xbox 260 Elite is pretty good

  • Excerpt: I've always prefered the Xbox systems to the Playstation, and this is no exception. This console base has far better games in my opinion, especially with the Halos. I find gameplay to be so much simpler with the Xbox 360 remote also. I've currently upgraded to the Xbox 360 Slim. If you're worried about the Red ring of death, don't be. I have played on several Xbox systems and played them into the ground.

  • Excerpt: So I own each and every system out there and I have many reserved opinions about this console. First let us start with the pros Pro: The game library and lists of what you can choose from is the best among all the sytems out there The online play is also the most stable and available in terms of being able to find matches, etc Graphics are nice on the console The fact that you can hook up externals to listen to music and watch videos is always a plus when it comes to...

Great gift but....

Overstock

  • Summary: What a nice gift to give a 12 year old for Christmas. This system has brought hours of fun. But...What a pain in the neck after it arrived. The system comes with 2 games and 1 of the games didn't work. I emailed Overstock and then I started with numerous phone calls and online chats trying to get just the game replaced. Not the whole game system!!! No luck. The system comes from a company other than Overstock. com and they couldn't help me.

OK console

  • Excerpt: This console is a great improvement from the last one. Looks great and is a lot slimmer and was built in wifi (FINALLY). However, it is still pretty loud and gets heated pretty quickly. I have both this and the PS3 and I feel the PS3 is still better because of the built in blu-ray player and not having to a wad of cash a year just to play online. Sure it may have an extra few features, but all you will really use is play online which is absolutely free on the PS3.
