Xbox 360 Reviews are not hard to come by, but can be hard to understand and difficult to maneuver through if you are not familiar with technical jargon. While most Xbox 360 reviewers are self-professed “tech geeks,” many gamers merely want to play a game and know what console to buy.
For this reason, I’d like to outline the basics of the Xbox 360 reviews for those of us that lack the technological knowledge we need to decipher the coding in most of the articles found online.
Price: The price of the console is something that is highly debated throughout Xbox 360 reviews found online. While some state that the price is reasonable, others disagree and say the console is actually overpriced. The explanation is simple. You get what you pay for, and shouldn’t pay for more than you need. Xbox 360 has many features that don’t all involve gaming. Owners can use this console to download music and movies, search the internet, or watch Blu-ray videos. If you intend to do all of these things, the around five-hundred dollar price tag is reasonable enough. Xbox 360 Reviewers that reviewed the product merely for its gaming capabilities found that the price tag was a little much to spend on a machine to play video games with.
Appearance: The size of the console is not as bulky as the original Xbox 360, but not as thin or “flimsy” looking as the PlayStation 2. Xbox 360 reviewers brag that it fits perfectly into nearly any entertainment stand and the color of the console gives it a “cool” appearance without clashing with any home decor. The buttons on the console are also easy to find and the machine powers up effortlessly.
Controllers: Many Xbox 360 reviewers cited Microsoft’s faulty planning of the original Xbox controller as cause for concern before they tried the product, but were pleasantly surprised. It seems Microsoft has managed to repent for their prior sins by creating a controller that is easy to hold onto with easily reached buttons with good reaction timing.
Online Features: This console boasts the best of the best in online gaming, many Xbox 360 viewers claim with their numerous levels of online gaming packages that can be purchased on the Xbox home site or through the console itself. Xbox 360 reviewers agree that the online gaming is a huge selling point of this console.
All in all, the Xbox 360 seems to be worth the money to more advanced gamers, but probably not a good fit for young kids or newcomers into the video game world. But one thing’s for sure- all Xbox 360 reviews agree it is a big step up from the previous model.
