Summary: The XBox 360 is a good option for any home entertainment system, especially with high definition screens, but standard definition is also supported.
This console offers cool multimedia features, like streaming music, and some video formats (.avi/.wmv) right from your PC over the network, which leaves you more hard disk space, by reducing the need to save music in your console. Buying arcade games as well as some Original XBox titles online add a plus to its online service.
This game console also has some very cool exclusive games that might be woth buying a new console in some cases.
In general this is a good console, although there are some very common problems with early models, such as fatal hardware errors like the red ring of death, although Microsft has claimed to have reduced the number of defective units for sale. Buyers should be adviced to keep their buy tickets and their properly sealed warranty policies in a safe place as they are more likely to need them than with other game consoles.
