Xbox 360 ignites a new era of digital entertainment that is always connected, always personalized, and always in high definition. It is the only system designed with a singular platform vision that combines the most-powerful hardware with intelligent software and services.

Every Xbox 360 game is optimized for a minimum of 720p high definition output with anti-aliasing. Regardless of the TV Xbox 360 connects to, gamers will experience smooth, cinematic experiences that far exceed anything they've seen or felt in games before.

Xbox 360 also features software so smart it remembers what gamers have achieved. The Xbox Guide Button is the launch pad that connects gamers to their games, friends, and music from the wireless controller.

With more than one teraflop of system-floating point performance, a three-core PowerPC-based CPU for the most-advanced artificial intelligence and physics processing, a custom ATI graphics processor and more than 512 megabytes of memory for the ultimate in visual fidelity, the Xbox 360 hardware is a perfect blend of power, elegance, and balance.

 why choose this over an elite

| | See all jackyll's reviews (1)

Before buying my 360 i did a lot of checking , most people have heard of the 3 rings of death , to me this was a bit worrying. Ok same price as an elite , but most elites were manufactured before this special edition and carry the 95nm chip , although not confirmed by microsoft , a lot of people believe this to be the major case of overheating and the 3 rings of death , these consoles carry the new 65nm chip and the internal workings have been moved around a bit , resulting in a far cooler machine. I have checked this against a friends early machine and indeed it is cooler and slighty more quiet. A great machine and highly recommended , may be on a par with a ps3 graphics wise , but head and shoulders clear winner on games.

 Pre-Ordered... Halo Maniac

I have this item, the two Official Xbox360 Halo 3 wireless controllers, Halo 3 Legendary Edition and Limited Edition all pre-ordered.... I'm a Halo nut.
The greatest game to be released on the console ever, You gota celebrate by buying all the kit!
I still love both Halo 1 and Halo 2, and Halo 3 just looks immense, I think Bungie and Microsoft are going to make mega bucks over it!
Can't wait for it all!
(Only problem is, I go back to University for my second year studying Animation during Halo 3 week!! :( )

I've also pre-ordered this console and the Halo 3 Legendary edition. I'm also a great Halo fan, but this is the first time I'll have purchased a 360. I'm so excited about this and I haven't even recieved it yet!
My only hope is that they will be delivered so I can use them on the 26th.
