Xbox 360 Slim review with video


Microsoft told us to expect an announcement much bigger than the renaming of Project Natal to Microsoft Kinect, and while the Xbox 360 Slim is by no means an earth-shattering unveiling, there is more than enough for owners of the more portly version of...

Built-in WiFi ; Slimline design ; Larger hard drive

Incompatible with old Xbox HDs ; No Blu-ray ; Lacks media storage capability

Microsoft Xbox 360 S 250GB review


The new model is a great boon to those buying their first 360, but it's not worth upgrading

If you’re a current 360 owner though, then we wouldn’t recommend rushing out to upgrade. Yes, it’s a little slinkier, and the built-in WiFi may appeal to those who have persisted with lengthy network cables. However, for most, you’d need to really be...

Microsoft Xbox 360 250GB


Is it an Xbox 360 Slim? Is it an Xbox 360 S? No, it's an Xbox 360 250GB!

Put simply, the Xbox 360 250GB is the best Xbox Microsoft has made thus far. It's better featured, with more USB ports and built-in wireless, its more energy efficient internals mean it's quieter and less power-hungry than its predecessors and, perhaps...

Review: Microsoft Xbox 360 Slim


When the Xbox 360 hit in 2005 it promised to revolutionize gaming. Microsoft got most of the way there (conceptually), but the original 360 hardware...

Leaner, (slightly) meaner and quieter. Inches closer to the all-in-one entertainment box we’ve been waiting for. Cosmetic touches like touch-sensitive power and eject buttons class up the joint. Thrusts overpriced accessories ( for a Wi-Fi dongle?!)...

In many ways the same console we’ve been playing since Senior Year. Inter-console data transfers still require a wonky proprietary cable

New Xbox 360 250GB review


When we first saw its face in a Italian ad, more than one Engadget editor called its bluff: "The top half doesn't line up with the bottom," some said,

Whisper quiet ; Energy efficient ; Integrated 802.11n WiFi

Generates more heat ; Still uses proprietary HDD system ; No hi-def playback out of the box

Xbox 360 (250GB)


Microsoft was the first to enter this current console-gaming generation with its original Xbox 360, a hulk of a system that beat both Nintendo and Sony to the punch. Despite the millions of Xboxes sold (or possibly because of it), the 360...

Revamped, more compact, elegant design. Integrated 802.11n Wi-Fi. Powerful 3D graphics. Excellent, diverse games library. Robust online community

Glossy shell attracts fingerprints and smudges. Although smaller, the power supply is still bulky. Still lacks Blu-ray

A still-solid gaming and entertainment experience coupled with a revamped eye-catching design, internal 802.11n Wi-Fi, and more storage make this the best Xbox 360 yet.

Microsoft Xbox 360 Slim


It has been four and a half years since the original Xbox 360 was released on November 22, 2005. New bundles have come out, hard drives for consoles have jumped in capacity exponentially, and there is even a black model of the 360 out there, but at its...

Good price point ; Includes a 250GB hard drive ; It looks cool, and it is smaller than the original ; It is much quieter and runs cooler ; Built in WiFi

An odd way to remove the hard drive that could potentially cause problems ; No HD connectivity without additional purchase ; No Blu-ray player ; The fancy shine is easily smudged with fingerprints

A new sleek, smaller, quieter design with built in wifi give the Xbox 360 a much needed overhaul.

Microsoft XBox 360 Arcade


The Xbox 360 was one of the top gifts of the holiday season back in 2006 and could be again this year. Microsoft's new Xbox 360 Arcade ($199.99 list) is a stripped-down version of the game console that hits the pricing sweet spot that consumers are...

Inexpensive next-generation console. Intuitive new interface and streaming capabilities. HD gaming

Barely enough storage to upload the new OS, let alone download games from Xbox Live Marketplace. No Blu-ray drive

The Xbox 360 Arcade is a fine entry-level, next-generation console, but its lack of storage makes game play feel like that of an Atari 2600.

Three years after the first shots were fired in Console War VI, Xbox 360 is winning the fight with the only weapons that really count: the deepest game library

Multiplayer matchmaking fills your social void with 12 million friends. Streams media from your PC

Premium Xbox Live account costs 50 clams a year. Clunky UI is terrible for navigating long lists of media

Check out our review of the new Microsoft Xbox 360 Slim.

HD Content; User interface; Mass market appeal; Seamless online connectivity

High price point; Needs a killer app; Demands an HDTV; Dodgy backwards compatibility

Bill Gates' pride and joy comes highly recommended to those who have an HDTV and cash to burn.
