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 original model may have been beset with hardware failures, but Microsoft's Xbox 360 is still our favourite games console of the current generation – thanks to smooth HD graphics, an amazing range of software, a great joypad and a well-conceived...

The new model is a great boon to those buying their first 360, but unless your current 360 is driving you mad with its racket then upgrading isn’t essential.

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 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.

Xbox Aces Console Wars: Best Online Gameplay, Solid Lib...

 

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

Microsoft Xbox 360 Slim 250GB

 

Though the new Xbox 360 certainly addresses most of the concerns we've had with the versions before it, we don't think it warrants a purchase if you already own an Xbox 360 in working order with an HDMI-out port and a hard drive.

Sleeker design ; 17 percent smaller ; Much quieter operation ; Better cooling ; Touch-sensitive power and disc tray ; 250GB hard drive ; Built-in Wi-Fi ; Five USB ports ; Dedicated Kinect port ; Onboard optical digital audio

The hard drive is still proprietary ; Controller on D-pad remains unchanged ; Cumbersome power block ; Renders existing faceplates useless ; No HD gaming out of the box

Of course we imagine retailers will offer enticing promotions on trade-ins of existing hardware for the new Slim console, so the choice to do so will ultimately be up to the individual. If you're desperate for Wi-Fi (and don't already have the USB...
