Advantages: Xbox Live, Games, Graphics, etc
Disadvantages: Accessories are pricey, Red Ring of Death
The Xbox 360 was released by Microsoft in 2006, and has fully established itself as a well respected console.
This is a service that as to be paid for, but it is well worth it if you have friends that you regularly play with. There are plenty of good sports and shooter titles out there for multiplayer including; Madden, Fifa, Halo, Call of Duty and Gears of War. Games like this are tailored for multiplayer and are great fun, especially with friends.
The selection of games on 360 is one of the consoles strong points. There are many good shooters and RPG titles. Exclusives include highly rated games such as Halo 3, Gears of War and Mass Effect.
The graphics are a big step up from the days of Xbox and PS2. Final Fantasy XIII is a fine example of the amazing visuals that can be produced on the 360. Along with the PS3, the 360 have really upped the standard of graphics.
Red Ring of Death. This is a major flaw in the design of the 360 and the amount of people that have had this hardware failure is ridiculous. Thankfully Microsoft will replace/fix your 360 for free if you do get the red rings. The machine is also quite loud, which is a minor annoyance.
I'll give the console a 4/5, losing a star because of the terrible hardware issues. Other than this the 360 is a brilliant console, with a great library of games to choose from.
Summary: Brilliant Console, let down by the hardware issues
