Microsoft Xbox 360

Microsoft Xbox is a video game console device designed to compete with other popular gaming platforms like Nintendo’s Wii and Sony’s PlayStation.  The current Xbox series, Microsoft Xbox 360, adds support for Xbox LIVE, which makes it possible for users to play their Xbox 360 games online with other users, as well as support for Microsoft’s Kinect, which enables users to control games and entertainment content with physical motion or voice commands instead of with a joystick or similar input device.

Microsoft Xbox 360 debuted in 2005 as the successor to Microsoft’s original Xbox platform.  The Xbox 360 sports a slimmer profile than the original Microsoft Xbox while offering more power, increased functionality, and less noise.  The most recent Xbox 360 release, the Xbox 360 S, was introduced in 2010 and currently retails for $199 - $399, depending on the amount of storage space included (from 4 GB to a 320 GB hard drive).
