A Review Of The Xbox 360
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Thinking about getting an Xbox 360? First off, I'd just like to say that it is a great system to own. I know I love mine. This is a great gaming console with tons of features, pretty impressive stats, and epic game series to experience.

One of the reasons for this gaming system's popularity is that it basically out performs pretty much all other game consoles. Let's talk about some of the features.

The most important feature of the Xbox 360 is the Xbox Live Marketplace. The Marketplace on Xbox Live is where you can download exclusive content for your games. You can also stay in touch with friends via video chat as well as text messaging. Another neat feature of the 360 that I like is that you can customize your console with interchangeable face plates. Now, this is my favorite feature. You can stream all of your music from your computer or your hard drive and play your favorite songs while playing your games. That's awesome.

The Xbox 360 is the second video game console born of Microsoft, of course the first being the original Xbox. This system was released on the 22nd of November 2005 in the U.S. and Canada. In the little over 6 years since it's release, the Xbox 360 has continued to be one of the most sought after game consoles. In fact, as of Jan 09 2012 over 66 million consoles have been sold worldwide. Within this consoles first year, it launched in 36 countries- more than any previous console has ever launched within a single year.

According to The Huntsville Times, "the Xbox 360 has far more computing power than the flight computer in the space shuttle." In fact, the space shuttle only has less than 1 percent of the computing power of an Xbox 360!

Now I'd like to list just a few of the top games that are carried on this system. In order to keep this article short and sweet, I'll just list 3 of the most popular games. I'll start by mentioning my personal favorite game series. Assassin's Creed. Amazing games with a fantastic storyline where you take control of your Assassin ancestors in order to fight the Templars. I highly recommend this game series. Then there is The Elder Scrolls games. Specifically The Elder Scrolls IV: Skyrim. Epic game and environments that let you do pretty much anything you want. And of course there is the Halo series. These games have tons of weapons you can use to battle hordes of aliens through several stages in either multiplayer or single play.

The Xbox 360 is an awesome console system with tons of great features to enhance your game play experience. The statistics about the console speak for themselves. And there are several very popular game titles and series for this system for you to enjoy.

I hope you enjoyed my article.
