At present there are 3 main consoles for gaming out in the market from which to choose and they are the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii. I have tested and written about both the Wii and the Playstation, so now it is time for an Xbox 360 console review.

Xbox 360 – A Complete Look

After I set it up I saw the Xbox 360 is a far cry from its predecessor. The first Xbox was bulky in appearance and big and black. The new unit is anything but. It’s color is white and it is much smaller but bigger than other systems such as the Playstation and Wii. For the first part of the Xbox 360 console review I give it a 4 out of 5 for appearance.

While appearance for some people is important, if you are a serious gamer then this is the least important thing. So let’s take a look into the next part of the Xbox 360 core console review and look at the titles that are available. This is not an Xbox 360 game review, but rather a look at the games you can get. The only system that Halo is available for is the Xbox and that is the primary thing that stands out for the Xbox 360 console. Game play on the console is by far a cut above that which is available on the PC. My favorite ever is the Halo series and this is a huge plus for the Xbox. While the single player is fun, this game truly shines with the multiplayer options, but I will get into that in the next section. The Xbox 360 console gets a 4 out of 5 from me for game titles.

The multi player options are the most important when you get a gaming system. The first Xbox hit its opposition out of the park, and meanwhile the Wii and the Playstation are getting close, the Xbox 360 is in front. You can find games easily; get content, and almost all of the games released for the system offer multiplayer support. The score for its multi player is a 5 out of 5. I find it hard to believe that they could improve on this much.

The Xbox 360 in my mind is the best system if you are looking for online action. Without even looking at the graphics or doing an Xbox 360 VGA review it shines. Many of the games are probably more suited to adults and something that is missing is the fun aspect of the Wii. The Wii owns the market in fun, interactive games. For non online adult games the Playstation 3 might have a slight edge, but if it does it is very slight and the Xbox 360 can keep up with in almost every regard.

Well there you have it, hopefully this 360 core console review has helped you to make your decision.
