Microsoft's next generation console; rivals the Sony Playstation 3 and Nintendo Revolution.

New features include:

- Improved performance and graphics

- Upgraded Xbox Live (Free silver account for activities like text & voice messaging, video chat / Subscription Gold account for online game multiplayer)

- Detachable hardrive

- Every single game in high definition with at least Xbox Live Aware

- Wireless controller featuring a power/Xbox Live button

- Interchangeable face plates

- Compatibility with MP3 players (such as iPod)

- Backwards compatibility with most Xbox games (v.i.a emulation)

When released, the Xbox 360 will employ the most powerful graphics chip ever created. ATi (Xbox 360's GPU supplier) boasts that the Xbox 360's unified shader architecture allows the console to run at 100% efficiency, while previous consoles ran anywhere at 50% to 70% efficiency. While the PS3 employs more brute strength, the Xbox 360's streamlined processing will allow for overall better performance than the PS3.

With the fact that Xbox 360 is such a multifunctional media hub, Microsoft hopes that the Xbox 360 will appeal even to consumers who are not gamers.



Xbox 360 is unique from PS3 and Nintendo Revolution in that it is really focusing on Xbox Live, and taking online play to the next level.
Xbox 360 is the first of what will become the next generation of consoles.

The official game console of Generation Y. Behind the Wii in sales but above the PS3 in sales, making it the 2nd place console of the 7th gen of consoles. The 360 was released in 2005, and since then everyone and their mother has one of these damn things even if they don't have games for it.

It's a pretty good console, despite the Red Ring Of Death or RRoD and the fact the Microsoft charges you to even touch the button to power on the damn thing. The controller is great, and the online community is large and active but is nothing but a place for asshole 13 year olds and bro-dudes to spread their racist homophobic shit.

It's also the stoners console of choice, and where 3rd party games sell the best.
Xbox 360 might have many problems but is still a pretty good console.

A video games console that will die, eventually.

The second generation of Microsoft's video games system, Xbox. It is cool, enjoyable and a successful attempt from Microsoft except the fact that it will eventually die.

There are several causes of death: a heart attack (RRoD in term of the 360), E 74 error, overheating that causes RRoD...etc.
"Dude, my Xbox 360 died last night. The cause of death is (a heart attack) RRoD'. The good news is I think a can use it as disco lights from now on."

"E 74 killed my 360. Curse you Microsoft!"

The icon of most American Teenagers, a 7th generation console with decent games and decent graphics. A overrated success for Microsoft, the slowly dying Computer company held at mercy by Apple, Nintendo, and Sony.
-Wow I love my Nintendo Wii games, but the graphics suck.
-And I love my PS3 graphics, but the games are limited and boring.
-Hey! How about we play Xbox 360 that I got at WalMart!!!
-Yay!!! Now we have games and graphics that we can't complain about or compliment!!!

The console that wishes it could be a PS3. You pay 50 bucks to play with 10 year olds on an xbox
"Damn I wish I had a PS3. Squeakers are everywhere on my Xbox 360"

The main reason a lot of men are single.
Joe: Hey Billy, do you want to go see a movie with Brianna? Billy: Hell no man, I'd much rather play my Xbox 360 then do any form of social activity.
