Pros Buy the 250gig drive online for $40, save $60 and drop into the 4gig version for a savings of over $100
Cons Microsoft is greedy for your money. Everything after the $399 initial investment, then buy Microsoft points, GOLD status (no online gaming without!), you must have Windows7 on a connected PC to watch downloaded movie content in .mkv or other codecs.
Summary More and more of my friends have a PC hooked up to a 42" TV that does all this for FREE after you buy the system. No per month charge to play online (PS3/Sony is FREE+Blueray player built in), aftermarket content is FREE, play any movie type/codec, games with FREE add-ons, cheaper games, and FREE G+, Google+, Hulu, Youtube, Facebook, streaming music, videos. Even the customer support is better!
Pros It has a lot of hard drive space and it's silent.
Cons It's hbulky and the motion sensor buttons are annoying.
Summary It's fairly good.
Pros great game selection
doesn't take up much space
works good with one minor problem
Cons gets hot
got the red dot of death when i first turned it on, easy fix (read below)
Summary okay, so here is my review on the xbox 360 250gb. It is an excellent gaming experience, but there are still a couple of problems that need to be looked into... One problem is that some of the 250gb models, hard drives aren't inserted correctly, so if you have one of these models, when you turn your xbox on and get the red dot of death, take the hard drive out, shake it and put it back in and it should fix the issue. My other concern is that it still gets hot but there is an item called the nyko intercooler sts, its perfect if you have your xbox in a cramped entertainment center where air can't flow freely out of it, you can play for hours, and when you touch the xbox it feels like it hasn't even been on at all. You can buy this item at gamestop online or in store for 20 dollars. Nyko definetly fixed the sts, as it is usb powered unlike previous models like the ex and ts
Pros PROS??? lol
Cons BE WARNED!!! Buy at your own risk. buying a xbox 360 slim is like playing russian roulette, as each time you turn the thing on you hold your breath in anticipation that it won't R.D.O.D.
Summary we buy these consoles to relieve stress and relax after a hard day wether it be work or school. Some of us actually work hard to be able to afford such equipment for pleasure. Very unsatisfactory that a massive company like microsoft can churn out hardware that can fail so bad. Not worth the money, not worth the stress,
Pros Okay, first of all ONLINE is much superiour now we got the new WIFI which is extra supiriour than PS3'S AND WII'S so thats a win for XBOX , also. I love the games on it , We dont have God of war III but who cares we GOT GEARS OF WAR III , and so on.
Cons Xbox is much superiour
