Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

With hundreds of great games, HD movies and music experiences, the Xbox 360 Elite console with a massive 120GB hard drive is the ultimate entertainment package. And with Sky TV, Facebook, Twitter and Last FM coming soon, Xbox 360 puts you at the centre of the most exciting games and entertainment experiences available.

Xbox 360 Elite Specifications

Xbox 360 Elite is a sleek, customisable gaming and entertainment system, which measures approximately 3.3 by 12.2 by 10.2 inches and weighs 7.7 lbs. It's powered by custom IBM PowerPC-based CPU with three symmetrical cores each running at 3.2 GHz. It also carries a custom ATI graphics processor 10 MB of embedded DRAM. This is powerful enough to draw 500 million triangles per second. In other words, it makes for great looking games in standard TV definition, and even better thanks to built-in support for HDTV 1080i televisions. It also supports the widescreen 16:9 format.

The unit has a 12x dual-layer DVD-ROM drive, which plays both the game media and progressive-scan DVD movies right out of the box. For game-save and media storage this console package includes a 120GB hard drive. Along with storing files, the hard drive will make the Xbox 360 backward-compatible with part of the existing Xbox game library.

Control your Gameplay

Xbox 360 uses a refined button layout for its controllers. Back and Start buttons sit at the center of the controller and between them is a new Xbox Guide button, which instantly takes the user to the Xbox 360 user interface. From there, they can check for friends online, access personal digital content like photos and songs, and more. The black and white buttons of the first Xbox controllers have been replaced with new shoulder buttons placed above the left and right triggers. Xbox 360 can accommodate up to four wireless controllers and has three USB 2.0 slots to use for wired controllers or for streaming your digital media from digital cameras, MP3 players, and any Windows XP-based PC. Microsoft has also created a video-conferencing camera, sold separately, that will work with the system.

The Media Experience

All Xbox 360 titles can be played in either standard or high-definition resolution in 16:9 widescreen, with anti-aliasing for smoother graphics. Game designers will be able to take advantage of the system's multi-channel surround sound. The Xbox 360's digital media allows users to supplement any game's music from tracks in their own personal library.

Go Live

A built-in Ethernet port allows users to connect their system to a broadband connection for access to the new Xbox Live Silver. The included service lets anyone create a Gamertag and gamer card to express your online identity, chat live with voice chat, and connect to the Xbox Live Marketplace to buy expansions, maps, and other digital items for your games. The subscription service Xbox Live Gold adds to that online competition, game stats, and video chat/messaging. The separately sold wireless adapter supports the common 802.11a, -b, and -g standards. HDMi cable sold separately.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Console! 5 Mar. 2008
    By NAR VINE VOICE
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    I was always put off buying a Xbox 360 because of its rubbish reliabilty, but finally ordered one after hours and hours of deciding as there are some really fantastic exclusives for the Xbox 360. The console is really good, I was very impressed with it but i can't help but think of its high risk of breaking down but until then (if so, some people get lucky and don't get the RROD) i will enjoy many amazing hours on my Xbox 360 Elite. I have all 3 consoles PS3,Wii and now the Xbox 360 my favourite use to be PS3 now i don't have a favourite cos all consoles are really fantastic, in there own unique way!

    Anyway i have the Elite and the 120GB storage is really a massive help as i love having lots of memory as i seem to take up memory very fast e.g on the PS3
    Also people make a fuss about the noise it makes but for me i don't see it as a problem, yes its not as quiet as the PS3 or Wii but its still quiet...

    Pro's:
    Online is fantastic!
    Nice looking console
    Comfortable control pad
    Great selection of games
    Get all accessories included when buy it (HDMI,Component,Headset etc)
    Fantastic 120GB storage!

    Con's:
    Not very good reliabilty (Hence the 3 year warranty)
    Have to buy the wireless add on
    Have to buy the HD DVD player add on (although i do not need it as i have the PS3, but it can be a con for people who don't have a Xbox 360 and a PS3 and its kind of not a con because its an accessory and not really needed but still can be a con for some people)
    Massive brick power cable!
    Can't charge controllers unless buy charger add on (this is not a big con but its still a con : ) )

    Except all that, its a very good console and im very happy owning all Next Gen consoles as i can buy any game on the market! : )

    If your looking to buy a Xbox 360 i would reccommend the Elite but if you already have an Xbox 360 there is no need to upgrade as your not really missing much

    5.0 out of 5 stars xBox 360 or xBox 360 Elite 25 Aug. 2007
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    Well, I've had a few hours with our Xbox 360 Elite wherein we've done nothing but test it against the most rigorous (unscientific) means at our disposal. But finally we are able to answer the question: is an HDMI-enabled Xbox 360 capable of outputting noticeably higher quality game play and movies? We compared our classic Xbox 360 (manufactured 2005) with our spanking' new 360 Elite (manufactured 2007). Ready for the face-off? Check out the gallery, and read on for our conclusions.

    I tested the consoles with a Sharp (46-inch) 1080p LCD and a 5.1 surround system -- we went HDMI vs. component, since it's safe to assume the majority of people don't have VGA inputs on their HDTV's (including us). We played the first stage of Gears of War (on casual, so what?), and then plugged in our HD DVD drive and watched a few scenes from Batman Begins.

    Console noise
    I know how much you all wanted your Xbox 360 Elite to quiet down a bit, but we have some bad news for you. As we heard from our sources who supplied us with much of our info about the Elite, unfortunately the noise level is about the same as before. It doesn't use the new 65nm chips, so it seems to require the same number of case fans.

    The same is true of the disc drive. Our Elite and classic drives do sound different, and it's obvious they're not the same make or model. However, unfortunately, they're equally loud. Sorry guys, you're still going to have to put up with the same level of noise as before -- don't come looking to the Elite for something that sounds less like a shop-vac.

    Heat
    As we said before, these are using the old round of 90nm chips, not the 65nm variety. So it goes without saying that using the same chips as before, these things are going to produce the same amount of heat.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Xbrick 3 July 2013
    Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
    Intro
    With the next generation of video game consoles just around the corner for the end of 2013, I thought I'd put my many years of experience of the current consoles to use, detailing the highs and lows of the Xbox 360. Now that several years have passed with Microsoft's second console under the all seeing eyes of gamers, its memorable moments shall be described for all to see and its failings held accountable...

    Birth
    Although Microsoft beat Sony to release their console by almost a whole year, its launch was a mixed bag. 2 versions of consoles being released really messed people about, especially those who had been gifted the console. It was 'Core' or 'Premium' with a difference of £70. In hindsight, £280 for a gaming console seems quite acceptable, but when there is a seemingly just as good version of it available at £210, one might wonder what's the difference? Memory. The Core version, simply did not have anywhere near enough memory to handle all your game saves and downloads, where as the Premium had a good 20GB to fill. Regardless, because of the lack of competition from Sony, sales went through roof for the only new generation console on the market. Despite beating Sony to the punch, the 360 didn't have a whole bunch of must have games, but was rather demonstration of what was to come, with various arcade titles highlighting solid, smooth gameplay and AAA games shown in HD graphical splendor. Its bests were The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Gears of War (Both 2006) but it wasn't until Halo 3's release that the console really became worthwhile.

    Life
    After the fiasco of the release and its versions, a handful more were release, the Elite (Which is what I currently own) saw the white case turn black, Harddrive increase in capacity and...
