Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite Resident Evil Limited Edition ( 120GB)

CNET
14 April 2015
  • Summary: While it's neither a must-have upgrade for existing 360 owners nor as feature-packed as the PS3, the Xbox 360 Elite's combination of top-notch gaming and digital media features make it the current game console of choice.
  • Pros: Excellent selection of games, including many 360-only exclusives; all games are in native high-definition; user-friendly Dashboard interface; supports wireless controllers and accessories; Xbox Live service offers online multiplayer (with matchmaking and voice chat) and content downloads for most...
  • Cons: The Elite fails to correct most of the annoyances of the original 360 version: the noisy DVD drive and cooling fan; a gigantic, oversize power supply; no built-in wireless networking; only three USB ports; a substandard DVD player; online gaming requires a paid subscription to Xbox Live; propriet...

Microsoft Xbox 360 Pro Halo 3 Special Edition ( 20GB)

CNET
6 April 2015
  • Summary: Now that Blu-ray has become the pre-eminent high-definition standard for discs, the Xbox 360 has yet to support it, but it still remains an excellent game console with a superior game library and online experience.
  • Pros: All games in high-definition; easy-to-use Dashboard interface; excellent online gaming and communications via Xbox Live; plays hundreds of (but not all) original Xbox titles; doubles as a superior digital media hub and Windows Media Center extender; online Marketplace allows for easy purchases of...
  • Cons: No support for next-generation HD discs, like Blu-ray; early versions of the console prone to "red ring of death" system crash; online gaming require a paid subscription to Xbox Live.

Microsoft Xbox 360 E Kinect Holiday Bundle ( 250GB, Forza Horizon)

CNET
1 August 2013
  • Summary: The Xbox 360 remains a great video and gaming console, but fans will be better served by older 360 bundles -- or waiting for the Xbox One.
  • Pros: The Xbox 360 E delivers a fantastic library of media and games, along with slightly quieter operation than the previous 360 model.
  • Cons: The 360 E loses the optical audio output found on previous Xbox models; lacks a Blu-ray drive; requires annual Xbox Live Gold subscription for nearly all online gaming and entertainment apps; older 360 hardware/software bundles remain a better value. The newer Xbox One is just around the corner.

  • Excerpt: 4 years and one week later after the Xbox launch, the Xbox 360 console is launching to North America. There's no need to bore you with tech specs, you've heard about all the bells and whistles that system contains, there's huge potential here. But how does the launch lineup fare?

Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite

CNET
28 September 2007
  • Conclusion: De couleur noire au lieu d’être blanche, la Xbox 360 Elite est équipée d’un disque dur de 120 Go (six fois plus vaste que celui de la précédente 360, deux fois plus volumineux que celui de la PS3), et d’une sortie HDMI permettant une connexion plus simple et de meilleure qualité aux moniteurs TV...
  • Pros: Excellente sélection de jeux, tous en haute définition et nombre d’entre eux en exclusivité ; interface « Dashboard » conviviale ; support des contrôleurs et accessoires sans fil ; possibilité de jouer en ligne avec d’autres utilisateurs et de télécharger du contenu pour la plupart des jeux (serv...
  • Cons: La plupart des faiblesses de la 360 d’origine n’ont pas été corrigées : lecteur DVD et ventilateur bruyants ; bloc d’alimentation fort encombrant ; absence de Wifi intégré, nombre de ports USB limité (3) ; lecteur DVD de qualité très moyenne ; nécessité d’ajouter un accessoire volumineux pour vis...
