    Great System for the value

    Posted
    Rice8002

    We bought this system for my fiance so we wouldn't have to play split screen any longer. The Xbox 360 system is great! I read a review of someone saying the plastic seemed cheap since it was see through and what not. This is not the case, the system seems just as well if not better built than the regular black slim I currently own, and a far cry from the original RRoD making systems. The sound effects are pretty lame to be honest, but they add character to the system ;-) What I like best about the system is the HDD space it comes with prevents you from needing to order a bigger HDD online, and the Blue light on the front. The controllers are the only reason I did not give this product a 5/5. We have a Microsoft Plug and Play and Nyko Plug and Play set. For some reason the Nyko would not charge in the controllers however the Microsoft one did. It's definitely not a deal breaker, but it just makes it a hassle since I have to use one of my old controllers to charge the battery up and plug it back into the Halo 4 one (I stole one of the controllers to use on my system :P ). The overall quality: feel and looks of the controller are great. the d-pad spins letting you have deeper set directional arrows or very little depth like the newer 360 controllers. The joy sticks are very great like normal and the biggest improvement from the controller I bought a few months ago vs the new one are the shoulder buttons. They seem to be more responsive and more satisfying to press. The headset is a standard 360 headset. Does it's job if you do not have a gaming headset, but I would recommend upgrading to either the Halo 4 Triton headset or a Turtle Beach headset. The last thing is Halo 4, which I'm sure you can youtube a great in depth review so I won't bother, other than saying it is definitely a great game. If this is your first 360 system, it would be a great game to keep you occupied for hours and hours. Plenty to do whether you enjoy playing through a great campaign along with the Spartan Ops which they are coming out with new episodes every week, online and split screen multiplayer which has been revamped and greatly improved, or even creating your own version of the maps with forge mode. Forge is great for making race tracks/obstacle courses/ player vs player maps/ or even just great buildings and castles. Pretty much whatever you can think of. All in all, this is a great purchase for people that are looking for their first Xbox 360 system, Halo collectors, or someone like myself needing another Xbox in the house.

    Misleading pictures and details

    Posted

    Well first off its a great game system no doubt, this is my first xbox 360, to bad its only being purchased strictly for the sole purpose of playing halo 4 only to have the next generation xbox come out Christmas 2013. When reading the details about the different sound effects the system made when powered up or ejecting i thought it was going to be melodic or transient but no its just sound effects like a sword powering up. The system case around the 360 is super cheap see through plastic with graphics overlay on it, the same goes for the front of the remotes. i was expecting the system to have lighting effects as well as the controls but there are none. Looks like something ill have to do custom wise. I would love to play online with fellow gamers but im not going to pay for a service that i believe should be hosted free like on PSN. Another issue i had was with the game that came with the system. Why did we not get the LIMITED EDITION version with the LIMITED EDITION console? seriously?! Im literally going to sell my game back that came with the unit just so i can get a MATCHING game addition. After taxes the grand total came out to $377 which seems fair and decent seeing as its a limited edition. But not at all up to my standards of showmanship and presentation.

    XBox 360

    Microsoft needs to do their marketing research a little better next time around because if the "Next Box" resembles anything like this it will surely fail to the competition. Unless, of course, their only competition is Sony. Nintendo doesn't count. You see, the Xbox has controllers that don't even come equipped with rechargeable batteries, a HDMI cord for HD gaming, and in my case a console that actually works. Yea, I had to exchange it for another one. No ring of death but instead another realm of problems. If it weren't for the awesome backing of Halo 343 and XBox Live DEDICATED servers service, I'd be pretty disgruntled. Now for whatever reason, Microsoft decided on a Radeon equipped with DX 9 instead of DX10 enabled GPU. This cannot be rectified as it is a closed box after all. So a bit of foreshadowing for you here, please. Next time around make a console that has power going for it out of the box and use your dedicated servers for added GPU virtualization. Enter the new paradigm. And include an HDMI cord while your at it. Memory is always a useful thing too.

    Overall, A fantastic deal

    Overall, this was a heck of a deal considering everything you get with it. 320GB HDD, two controllers, headset, not to mention the fancy design on the console and controllers. I bought this as a replacement for my 1st gen 360. The slim is a little bit smaller, a lot better looking, and a hell of a lot quieter. Something I do not see in the reviews here that you will see all over the place in Amazon reviews is the crack on the case. Mine is only about 3 inches long, and appears to be a manufacturing defect. Over at Amazon, apparently people have returned them several times and the new ones sent are still cracked. I decided to not return mine as it isn't really noticeable unless you look for it, I just wish Best Buy would tell you in advance for those that may have a problem with it.

    For the perfect Halo fan. Old and new.

    Decided to upgrade me original Xbox 360 console for a new one. The orgi al works great, but I wanted to try the new slim console out. Played the original halo when it came out on the old Xbox and have been playing the games ever since. This was the perfect way to have the best of both worlds, the console looks sleek and has an almost out of this world design like a new console hardware should. It comes with 2 themed designed controllers, the halo 4 game and codes for in game multiplayer FOTUS armor skin/emblem as well as for your avatar. The downside to all of this is that the game isn't the limited edition game, but rather the standard issue one. Despite that the price, features, and gameplay make it worth it.

    Large Hard Drive

    Cool new look, very quiet while running. Large hard drive gives you more room for music, movies, and downloads. I have collected all the, Halo edition XBox consoles and this one with the biggest hard drive yet makes you feel like you don't have to worry about running out of space. I travel so hooking up to the internet is not always easy, most hotels use WIFI not a hard connect. This XBox settings are pretty straight forward for WiFI so the problem is getting a strong enough signal to play on line, "signal problem not the console". Two custom controllers and headset; the headset could be nicer, as it was the standard microsoft verison. Bundle came with game codes which was nice. If you are a, Halo fan you know you want it!

    My first 360 lasted ~7 years. Recently I get the red ring of fire and extremely noisy disk. My wife bought me this as a gift. The overall function has not change, I like the addition of HDMI although this is not new, it is an upgrade for me. The overall footprint of the module is much smaller than the previous model I have, but it is larger than a ps3. I wish this could play blu ray or be slightly more functional like the ps3. I plan to purchase the family plan for Xbox live as it is $25 per person for 1 year with a group of 4. This package must be bought from Xbox directly. Much better than $60 per person per year. Hope this helps.

    HaloJoe

    This is my 4th xbox and i am a die hard Halo lover. This xbox came with 2 beautiful controllers, an awesome console with a cool see through finish "not cheap plastic", Halo 4, and a regular headset. I have had no problems with my plug and play and it is a nyko, i transferred over 100 gigs of junk to this 1 without a problem, connected to the internet fine, and it runs fast, has great graphics, a giant hard drive and it is great. Im tired of people who are lying about it and i am very glad i drove over 2 hours just to pick it up, if u didnt get yours yet hurry before its to late

    looks amazing, has what it says

    Valkarion117

    It says it is wireless, but for some reason it cannot find any of my networks. I bought a data transfer cable to swap info from old xbox to this one, didnt work. said the old hard drive was not xbox capatible...BS!!! So i am resorting to transferring 60 gigs of content one step at a time with a 16 gig usb, its the only way. It comes with standard a/v cables, shorter than normal. i just hope this "no internet found" stuff is fixed, only 15 feet away! not pleased with its performance in the data and internet thus far, but it can play halo 4 i give it that.

    I've had one of the older xbox models since 2007 and was looking to upgrade when I heard that there was a Halo 4 Edition xbox console. This console had built in wifi, 320 GB hard drive, a great design based on Halo 4 as well as start up sounds from the game, and on top of that it came with a copy of Halo 4, 2 controllers and head set, all for just $350. That was a much better price than buying the regular console (250) with a copy of Halo 4 (60), 2 new controllers (2 x 60) and a new headset (20). In total I saved $100 by upgrading to this console.

    Halo 4 In-Game Sounds?? Awful!

    Posted

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

    That is my only complaint. The console is promoted to have unique sounds to it that are from the game itself...for when you start up the console and use the eject button. IT sounds awful.... I played the entire game and completed it on Legendary, and when I got my console, I hooked it up, and the sounds with the eject button and "on" button did not sound like a thing from the game. I couldn't even really understand the sounds...if that makes sense. It sounded like a static-y mess. I returned mine and best buy let me.

    Great Custom System

    This system is really cool looking. If you're a true Halo fan, you will love this system. They did a great job on it. The controllers are really cool looking as well. My only complaint with this system is that it does not come with any king of HD wire (Component, HDMI). C'mon Microsoft, it's 2012. Get with the times guys. Also, you can't beat the massive 320 GB hard drive that comes with it.

    best looking halo console

    Informerofhalo

    Halo 4 console: is a customized consle that has 320GB hard drive also includes two controllers, halo 4 game, orginal black headset, and DLC. The best thing about this to me is the F.O.T.U.S armor, and the console itself. If you are a big halo fan i would get this, considering the "Limited edition A.K.A collectors edition" is not included with this product :(

    I bought this system for my son to replace his older off-white Xbox 360 that did not have wireless. This was a great deal considering the built-in wifi, two extra controllers, larger HDD, basic headset, and overall look and feel of the console. My son also mentioned that he thought it was cool that you can turn the thumb pads on the controllers to change it from an Xbox thumb pad to a PS3 thumb pad. Not sure what that means but he likes it.

    ThatOneGuyWhoDied

    So, I got this Xbox about a week ago, I was feeling uneasy about getting it early, but I quickly lost that feeling. I plugged it in, and my electric company says it consumes less energy than the regular Xbox slim! You guys are gonna love the game too, at the end, Master Cheif ********removed for spoilers********but it's great!!! Hope everyone enjoys it as much as I have!!!! Oh!!! And you'll never guess who dies!!!!!

    this Halo 4 Xbox is probably the best Xbox console available right now for what you get (320 gb console, 2 controllers, DLC, wired headset, and the game itself. all of this separate is probably around 500-600 dollars. and the bundle is 350. great deal, I just wish it came with an Xbox live gold card.

    I Hate Halo, but LOVED this One. Traded in my Original Xbox for this new Slim 360, and Wow. This system is really quite, you can't even hear it. The system design is Awesome, transparent and sleek and the same design Flows into the controllers. No complaints here except that online play prices are to pricey, but that has nothing to do with this review. hope this helped.

    We had to return the first one after we opened it up. It was cracked up the side of the Xbox. If I had waited till Christmas I would not been able to return it. But they exchanged with no problem. Only thing is he can't get YouTube or Netflix but we will get that technical problem fixed. We have three xboxs and we love it!
