Review of Xbox Slim (250GB):
Overall, I really like the new version - it's definitely quieter but NOT whisper quiet - especially when turning a disc. Install the game to the Hard drive (hence why I got the 250gb one) and it's a lot lot better. You can still hear it though when playing you don't notice. When playing a DVD and there is a quiet moment I do notice it - though barely - more than my old Sony DVD player this xbox is also replacing!
I like the new front panel touch sensitive areas though when messing around with the cables at the back I have turned it on and open the tray by accident - it's that sensitive.
Since my old DVD player what an cheap upscaling one with a HDMI connection and because I already had an Apple TV using the other HDMI I have always used the XBOX with component outputs - good enough but not quite as good as HDMI I am led to believe. So, with getting rid of the DVD player and using the xbox instead (as it's just about quiet enough now) I can use the HDMI and that is better. OVerall, it's a lot better connected at the back and also includes an internal wireless N network adaptor which is better than spending £50 on the peripheral for the old one - though I had it wired to the router anyway myself
Overall 8/10 for the new XBOX though
Firstly should you believe the hype and the TV adverts aimed at mums etc?Read more ›
Patches and more Patches - Before you can use all the functionality you will have to download them and before you can use the Xbox itself you will need to wait for it to update itself. I did mine through an ethernet connection so do not have any experience on what dramas may befall somebody who needs to have a valid Wifi connected. Last FM, Sky, Zune, Kinect, Video Kinect and so on all need to be updated but not necessarily at the same time but you will certainly spend some time watching the progress bar.
Kinect - This was very impressive and the first time you see yourselves on screen is a bizarre but very enjoyable moment and a bit like a chewing a fruit pastille I defy anyone not to start jigging about at this point and chuckling to oneself.
Kinect Adventures included in the box. Lots of fun but nothing groundbreaking but definately eases you into the idea of Kinect very well. I think it would of been better to have Kinect Sports in the box.
Also on the Kinect adventures disk are demos of Joyride, Dance Central and Fitness evolved. The fitness evolved demo is very limited but the Dance Central and Joyride demos are both good.
One interesting point is how you interact with the games. With the Microsoft stuff it is hover wait for the ring to select, Dance Central uses the swipe mechanism. This is definately faster but also prone to accidental selection. On balance though I think I prefer the swipe method even with the potential accidental selection.Read more ›
First impressions, it works, not just okay, but really well.
The two grandkids (ages 5 and 3) loved it, i was a bit worried at first as some reports said it wouldn't recognise the little ones, but it was fine. They do have a tendancy to drift towards the screen, at which point it loses them, but they soon worked out that when their character turned white they had to move back.
Stepson and daughter so impressed they ordered one there and then on our pc!
And yes you do need to have a fair amount of uncluttered space to use it, the dogs wandered into the play space, but it didn't complain.
It works quite well from the dashboard, but it doesn't yet have the full integration that it needs. For example, you have to go "into" Kinect from the Dashboard, and then from there it all works fine with the hand gestures, but once back on the dashboard you need the controller again. But i think that with a couple of software updates that should all come together.
The voice controls are really good and worked fine for all six of us.
I only have the game that comes with it (Kinect Adventures) and the Fitness Evolved one, and this is the only problem, you are going to really need to buy some other games with it, and they ain't cheap. The other whinge (for me personally) is that with Kinect Adventures, most of the games involved jumping, and for someone of 45 with a dodgy back, i don't think i'll be playing it too much.
It's already good, wonder how much better can get with a few updates.
But the thing that will make or break Kinect is the games, unlike the Wii, the technology is there, game developers just have to use it with the right type of games.
Oh, and in addition the 360 250gb Slim is a revelation, so quite and beautiful.
