Fun for the whole family!Posted .
I am an avid gamer and the huge selection of games that the Xbox 360 provides is a perfect fit for someone that has as varying a taste as I. I enjoy the exclusive games such as Gears of War or Bioshock (even though Bioshock is now heading to the PS3) and I like the fact that there are so many cross platform games that you never really feel left out of the action. We use the 360 to watch DVD's in the bonus room as well as stream music from our Zune and iPod libraries from the computers in the house. It plays a huge role in the home theater experience and our whole family uses it. From my 2 yr. old daughter who watches downloaded episodes of Dora the Explorer to my wife who plays Pirates vs Ninjas Dodgeball with her friends, this is a true entertainment experience. I would highly recommend this system to anyone that wants an addition to their home theater setup that does more than just play games. Online play is also top-notch. My wife and I both play with friends who live to far away to meet in person on a regular basis and it's always a blast to hang out and voice-chat with them while we enjoy a simple game of Uno or go a little more hardcore with some Halo 3 or Call of Duty 4. The graphics are great, the fun times are non-stop and the experiences you have are fantastic. At this price point, it's a steal!

For the Traveling GamerPosted .
I just got my xbox 360 from best buy a few weeks ago and it works great. The set up is really easy just plug into the TV, to power, and your set and hooking to xbox live is just as simple. All you need is the xbox 360 wireless adapter that you can get from Best buy or a hard line Ethernet cable that connects right into the back of the system. This system is thoroughly impressive; I come from a computer gaming back ground and told myself I would never get a console. I could not help it any longer, after talking to the people at my local Best Buy about the console I had to get one. The xbox 360 is also a better investment than a computer and is easier to maintain. Not to mention the 1 year warranty from Microsoft Best Buy offers there own warranties that are a great value for people like me who carry my xbox over to my friend’s houses and have gaming parties all the time. I would highly recommend this system over any other; not only is it great for gaming you can link it up with your computer and put movies music and even chat with friends online with the xbox 360.I would recommend this to a friend

Nice Console !!!Posted .
this is my third 360, since my first purchase back in dec. 2006, with the red ring of death glitches. My second one just froze on me while playing halo 3. But my latest one is the updated version with the HDMI connection in the back. BIG improvement. No more red ring of DEATH!!! You probly read all the other reviews about the 360, but the main reason I bought mine was for the media center extender techonology. I have a media center pc set up that records my shows and i am able to watch them on my 360 in my living room while my pc is in another room!!! It is awsome. Just recently xboxlive did a update to the console that now lets you play MPEG 4 file format (divix) (xvid) video. That is EXCELLENT!!! cause now the console can play just about any video format now, except MPEG1 and 2. Thats fine for me cause thoes file formats are not as good as Divix and xvid. That is a Plus in my BOOK. I like this console so much, i bought another for the guest room.I would recommend this to a friend

Best Next Gen Console!!!Posted .
Out of the Wii, Xbox 360, and PS3. The Xbox 360 WINS. With 1080p and Surround Sound, it will look PERFECT on any HDTV. But what really is great about the console is Xbox Live. Yes you have to pay for it but just drop $50 dollars and you're good for a year. Best of all, you don't even have to give out your credit card number!!! Just go to Best Buy and pick up an Xbox Live card and redeem it. IT'S THAT EASY!!! You know what..... JUST GET IT!!!I would recommend this to a friend

Don't give up on the 360.Posted .
For everyone who says "breaks too easy" and things like that. I highly disagree. The Xbox 360 is an amazing game system. You have a ton of games to choose from, which all have amazing graphics. So if you really think the PS3 is better than the Xbox 360 I think you should over think it. Well hope this has helped you. :) P.S. In the picture there is a Xbox 360 and a Wii.I would recommend this to a friend

A console gamers dreamPosted .
There are many things you'll read about the 360 while researching which console to buy. After a year and a half of hands on the 360 has run almost flawlessly for me minus a few game freezes that you'll encounter on any system. Where it's at is the games, and there are plenty. Alot of fun is to be had with this console, and I honestly own all 3 next generation consoles, but the 360 garners around %90 of my attention. Onl-line gaming is very important to most 360 owners, but you can game some, and then break for as long as you want and come back to them. For most games the install base is large enough now that there will almost always be someone to play on-line with. Howevery, story still plays a big part in single player, and there are some moving stories to interact with on this console. The premium console is a steal at this price point, and the 360 is so much more than a video game console. It's a full fledged media center. Pull pictures from your PC, plug in your iPod via USB, download reasonably priced TV shows and much more in this package. You'll find an ever growing collection of XBOX Live Arcade games to complement high definition movie rentals if you'd prefer. Microsoft understood that sometimes you need a break from gaming. Along with all the other features I've listed if you have a high definition set-up, you'll find the most reasonably priced high definition movie player on the market. I 5-Star recommend the HD-DVD player to go along with your XBOX 360. The system offers 1080p gaming and movie viewing, has a built in scaler to upscale your DVD collection and can connect to the internet straight out of the box with the network cable included in the box. Some people say that sound isn't the strongest feature, but for %95 of the people that utilize 5.1 at the most, this consoles media boasts some gripping audio and firmware updates add more and more features everyday such as DTS (Digital Theater Surround) support. The console is ever changing because of firmware updates, and I've always found it to be for the better. So in a nutshell, the 360 offers everything a gamer or techhead could and with each game that comes out (AAA or not), I'm finding this system becoming more and more the best gaming system I've owned in 25 years of gaming. Maybe I'm just addicted to achievements, but I'd like to think that I'm just addicted to fun.I would recommend this to a friend

Free 30Days XBOX GOLD??????Posted .
One thing you should know when You buy the XBOX 360 that says free 30 days of GOLD XBOX Live is they do everything to make you pay for it. They do not tell you anywhere in the box how to get the freee 30 day GOLD XBOX LIVE. The only way you can get it is to go thru subscribing and choose the SIlver then they will offer you a gold for 30 days free. Of course most folks will go ahead and pay anyway after looking thru everything that came with it... Reading for an hour then going ahead and paying. I found this out by e-mailing and asking where mine wasy. Knowledge is power. One other bit you can get 3 total 30 day golds subscriptions per XBOX360 if you choose not to pay. SO now you know. Read e-mail below Thank you for writing Xbox Customer Support! I understand that you have some concerns regarding your 30-day Xbox Live trial Gold membership that comes with every Xbox 360 console. The 30-day Gold trial membership provides temporary access to the features of a Gold membership. This includes online multiplayer gaming. When you set up an Xbox 360 console, you follow an account creation sign-up process. This lets you access Xbox Live Silver membership features, assuming that you have a broadband connection. At the end of the account creation process, you can upgrade to a Gold membership. If you do not upgrade, you receive a free 30-day Gold trial anyway. The 30-day Gold trial is associated with a single gamertag and cannot be added to an existing subscription. There are a total of three 30-day trial accounts per console. After a user has created three trial accounts, the user no longer receives a message that provides the opportuni ty to create a 30-day gold trial account. By default, the Gold trial does not automatically renew to a paying subscription. Instead, the account automatically converts to a Silver membership at the end of the trial period. If users want to continue with the Gold membership, they can select the subscription length and the payment type that they want on the Account Management screen. If you need to reply to this e-mail, please reply 'with history' (include any previous e-mail) so we can expedite our service to you. You may also call Xbox Phone Support at 1-800-4MYXBOX (1-800-469-9269) at your earliest convenience, and we’ll be happy to help you. We are open everyday from 8am to 12mn US Central Time.

Good system with minor flawsPosted .
Ive had this system for about a month. it is a solid system that i enjoy. the system can run for hours with very little stuttering, the only time i ran into slow downs is with marathon sessions of mass effect. thats only due to how big mass effect is. i played the single player version of halo three for an extended period and saw no slow downs on the system. while the online experiance is good, little to no lag if you have a good connection ((dial up is not recommended)), i did not care for the fact that i had to pay a subscription fee to play online, the wii and ps3 do not have fees. though thats my only gripe with the system. i have the premium system, at first the controlls were hard to understand, noted this is my first system ive had since the ps1 ((been mostly useing the pc for games)). After awhile though i found them easier to grasp. the controller is smaller then the original xbox controller and feels comfortable for long periods of gameing. the system was easy to set up out of the box, but useing the analog sticks and buttons to type in information is annoying, though microsoft has a keyboard like thing to solve this. all in all the console is a solid one. ive had no major or moderate issues, the only ones being are lag, and slight game freezes with mass effect, but thats after more then 8 hours of solid play. and a restart of the system always works. the cons are few, and thats xbox live gold. if you just want to play single player games then this console is for you. if you want multi player, your going to have to pay a subscription for the full effect of live. noted this system is not fully backwards compatiable with the older xbox, but thats a small point seeing as the xbox was newer then the ps2 and gamecube. though while sony and the wii both have games that date back a long ways that should not stop you from getting this system, there are plenty of games for the xbox. on a side note, i had subscribed to xbox live gold, and then unsubscribed, the people at billing were helpfull and prompt, i also dealt with tech support about the internet, which turned out to be my modem not the system. both times microsoft was helpfull and freindly, i have not dealt with the other systems support, but i must say Microsoft has always been helpfull with customers that have problems. keep that in mind when you get the system. though id rate the single player and tech support a 5, the fact that xbox gold costs money each month lowers that scord to a 4.I would recommend this to a friend
