Xbox 360 4GB Console (Xbox360)
Advantages: Slim, Quiet, Great Design & Touch control on/off button
Disadvantages: No inbetween on the Memory
This is my 5th & 6th XBOX360, and no I didnt buy that many because it was so damn good. The original XBOX 360 console was very much a hashy work in progress if you ask me, was really noisy and the red light errors were off the charts(Anyone who owned one knows what I am talking about) I continually had to get it replaced.
However they released the Elite which was no real improvement and then they thought lets try and give the customers a console that actually works and thankfully this is the console we wanted way back on the initial 360 launch. This is the XBOX360 S the "S" standing for slim which is kind of false but it is more of a sleek design. The red rings of death are gone and hopefully will never return. The biggest difference that has helped that situation is the change in the vents situatuon on the console. Before they were on the back and didnt work whatsoever, so everyone bought cooling fans to help out but they were super noisy and was obviously an extra charge on top of the console itself. The new vent however is on the side of the machine and work really well and doesnt take anything away from the design(If anything they actually make it look cooler) So now that they have sorted out the errors and the noise is significantly reduced and it is a much more enjoyable experience because of those two things alone. Along with these improvements to the design of the hardware they re-tuned the software and now that they released Kinect (You are the controller) its more family friendly & the XBOX has become the best console for every home in my opinion. The playstation Move is just a re-hash of the Wii and uninventive and the Wii is getting well past its sell by date.
Even though we are closing in on the next generation now (Possibly the XBOX720) the 360 is still selling and it is because it has all the bases covered and they and each base is done better than there competitors. The big plus the 360 has always had from its launch to now is the best controller by more than a country mile.
All in all the console is the best of the current generation models and if it can make the same strides and get it right first time with the 720(Probably named something else upon release) Then they will be on top for some time to come.
Still a good buy for a couple of years before the next model comes out
Summary: Very good Console for the whole Family
