You can tell Xbox invested a lot of time and money making the Kinect work so well. I use it for calling plays in madden 13, and my cousin uses it to play Kinect soccer and bowling, and the Kinect is up to the task on both of them. I wish they made more games that use Kinect, like the new game called Ryse, which looks awesome but has been delayed a lot since its announcement.
the Xbox itself is a lot better then the original, no worrying about getting the red ring of death. Sadly My Xbox freezes every so often when playing The Elder Scrolls 5 Skyrim. The increased amount of disk space is awesome for downloading movies and music on hulu or netflix. The look of it is awesome too, the upgrade from the original design was kind of lame, and this new style is awesome and sleek.
I would give the Xbox itself a three stars out of five
I would give the Kinect a four stars out of five
I have been using the xbox 360 4gb gaming console for more than a year. To be frank am a ps3 fan. But i just wanna give it a try. I was been very frustrated with the xbox 360 arcade console which got RROD within 7 months of time. But this one, the slim console is fantabulous. Its very awesome... It will be very special if u use it with kinect. The technology used in kinect is unbelievable. Though the hardcore teenage gamers love xbox 360 very much, kinect has a brought a special surprise to the kids tooo...
Its been a fantastic family entertainer,...
1. Xlive is fantastic
2. Xbox 360 controllers can be used with PC
3. It supports VGA HD cable to play on old monitors
4.It has more USB slots than the ps3 system
5. overall build quality is impressive, its lighter, smaller, has touch senstive buttons, looks good, as compared to PS3 slim
The Xbox strikes back with is own personal 'Wii' To cash in on the ever increasing 'you are the controller' games market.
The Kinect itself is quite a good piece of equipment and it seems to notice me quickly and it follows my movements almost perfectly, The voice recognition is good and it didnt let me down when I recently played through Mass Effect 3, it also regularly picks me up in Fifa 13 for swearing and as a result I get carded. It is easy to place in your living room or bedroom although you will need quite a bit of space to use it.
The Xbox itself comes with 250gb of internal hard drive space which is very useful for installing games on, (Installing games makes them load faster, run smoother) And it also means you can take your game and trade it in for cash the day after it is released so you get a 'cheaper' copy of the game whilst still being able to play it although I didnt tell you that. Its also very useful if you use something like lovefilm instant which allows you to download and stream movies directly to your Xbox.
This new model of Xbox irons out the previous Red ring of Death problems, Its also lighter and less noisier and the buttons respond to a touch with a little ping when you touch them as opposed to having to press them like the older consoles.
After my ps3 decided well , not to work I decided to try the xbox 360 out
Its really more stable than the ps3 it does not require regular software updates like the playstation3 which crashed and locked my ps3 ( who then wanted £250.00 to repair it? )
I have never looked back on it the xbox 360 250 gb is amazing value for money its reliable, nice looking and sort of compact , there is a wide range of games available for it loads and loads , it has connection to the internet via xbox live , you can play people you know or challenge people all over the world
There are loads of different Accessories that you can use to Customize your xbox 360 with matching accessories including favourite's such as controllers, wireless heads, quick change and play and charge kits , plus not to forget the kinect for 360 which is pretty darn good compared to the Wii .if you turn it around and look at the back you see can the usual selection of various ports - USB, HDMI, power connection , I would recommend the hdmi cable they have come down in price
Overall amazing value for money , plus it plays dvds , music and photos
bring on the xbox 720 :)
When I first heart of this, I thought "Wow, great, another Nintendo Wii." Overview of Nintendo Wii- Similar to this, except that you use a controller rather than your hands. One thing that annoyed me about the Wii was that when youre playing sort games, the control is susceptible to so much damage (people getting competitive) so it really is not practical. Even with the wristband attached, which really, does not help. So the Xbox Kinect has already got bonus point just for its ergonomic capabilities. The games provided are very good, you can play either against people or not. One of the best games, I must admit, is bowling. Its very fun and is a very good emulator of a real bowling game, without the annoyance of using all your strength to pick up the ball! The one disadvantage though, is when you have to collaborate with your hands and the screen.. you have to be in the perfect position which can get a bit tedious. All in all, fantastic.
This "version" of the xbox360 console is amazing. It is virtually silent. I had the elite version and premium before and neither have been as enjoyable as this version. Both are bulky and noisy. Where as this one is sleek, slim and very quiet. Sometimes I forget I have left it on because i'm used to the racket of the older models.
I have enjoyed this new console. Mainly use it to play minecraft which I highly recommend. Apart from that I feel the need to comment on the looks of the console. The Matte black finish and chromed power button make it very stylish. Not only does it look good but it is also much more compact than the PS3 or other xbox360's available. The power brick is kind of bulky but it is easily hidden behind the console.
The new dashboard of the xbox360 console's makes for a very fun gaming session. You can play music while you game, watch dvds and enjoy them in hd and chat to friends online or on msn.
Overall I would rate this console 8/10. It is amazing to use and looks like perfection.
