Xbox 360 (2005)
Original price: $399
The original Xbox 360 had a removable faceplate, famously red-ring-prone hardware, and an off-white color scheme that made it resemble a futuristic tower PC. The $399 version came with a 20GB hard drive and no internal Wi-Fi; a $99 USB Wi-Fi dongle had to be purchased separately. It also didn't have HDMI, and came packaged with composite cables.
However, the Xbox 360's debut a year before the PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii made it the first next-gen console, and the first gaming console that supported HD graphics.
