Rated 5 out of 10 by elkapitan On GB Not very impressed
Ive had the system before when it wasnt a 60gb. i had the original pro ithink with 20gb hard drive. I have to say this console is okay because of graphics and sound but on the other hand the design is very boring compared to Ps3 and the performance isnt very good mine broke within the first 3 months with minimal online gaming and then the second lasted 5 months. As you can see the performance isnt good. A 360 doesn't last a whole year no matter how well you take care of it. I kept mine in a cool, non clutter room with nothing blocking the 360. Dont get me wrong but the games are fun and the online play is fantastic but still its not a system that lasts. My friends all have Ps3 and ive played and i think the graphics are way better and my friend has had his since it came out and it still hasn't broken!!! Something seems wrong to me. For Microsofts cheaper price then Ps3, it really does show!! well this is what i think of xbox i dont know what others think but im not pleased

Great system, but mine just red ringed itself 2 days ago. Im sending it back tomorrow, and they'll fix it for free plus give me a free month of live for my trouble which I appreciate, but it just makes me mad that it happened out of nowhere. No signs of the system breaking down at first or anything, just all at once. I still recommend this console to anyone who likes video games at all. It's a great system and has the best selection of games than any other console out there. If you notice, just about every game either comes out for all consoles or exclusively the xbox 360. That shows me that not only does Microsoft have the money, they have the best system. Microsoft has a whole list of games coming out this fall, so once I build up some more money I will be buying like crazy. Too Human, getting Madden later this week so that when my 360 comes back I can play right away, heck, I may even try out Viva Pinata. All I know is I will be a buyer once I get my 360 back.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Stuart Little Not just dumbed-down Guitar Hero
For those of you who think that this game is just for people looking for lower difficulty, think again. This game is simply meant to appeal to people who want to play genres other than those available in the Guitar Hero series. That's why it's called Band Hero, not Rock Hero, etc. So if you want to play songs with more general interest to them, but the songs from Guitar Hero and Rock Band hardly appeal to you, maybe because of lyrics, subject matter, or something else, and you want to try your hand at this kind of game, you'll probably enjoy this game if it's made as well as Guitar Hero and Rock Band. Since it's by the company that made the Guitar Hero series, it's probably comparable. In all of these games, there are several difficulty settings, so if that's the issue, I recommend whichever one has the set-list that appeals to you the most. Remember, most of these games have downloadable songs released on a regular basis, sometimes even song packs and full albums.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Patrick A. Young Best thing I ever bought
Before I had my 360 I had a Wii which was fun for a week and then I realized that it was the worst system to ever be built, even the Game Cube is better. Well, so I didn't play the Wii much it just sat around the house while all my friends were playing their Xbox's and PS3's having fun playing with friends. While only one of my friends had a Wii if I wanted to play online with him we each had to give each other like 13 digit codes for each game and we couldn't talk and all the games suck pretty much. But a year after the Wii I got the Xbox 360 and it had the best games know to man (if you are not allowed to play rated M games, you will miss out) and I could play with friends easily and able to talk. And the PS3 is fun but they are to $$$ and none of my friends have them. I would highly recommend a 360 over a Wii or PS3. P.S. The Xbox 360 Arcade is a rip off because it doesn't come with a hard-drive which are $$$, so get the Pro it is the best deal.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Scott-O The Best System
Xbox 360 is the best system to date. Sure it may have some flaws but what system doesn't. First, I'd like to say that I have owned my 360 for 2 years and no problems with it has occurred. The only thing that happens sometimes that I hate is when it freezes. That is only the main problem. Now lets talk about its pros. The 360 has some of the best graphics I have seen. The sound is also great too. The controller is very comfortable hen I hold it. The games are all great on the system, and its nice to have 360 exclusives like Halo and Gears of War. I am subscribed to Live and it is fun. The marketplace and online multiplayer is cool and fun. Its nice to buy downloads for your game. Also the other flaw for me is that when opening my disc tray, it stops so I have push on it with my finger to have it open all the way. Yet it opens all the way if I am ready to take the game out of the tray. Over all this is one of the best systems too. In my book, this is a definite buy for a gift or just a great buy, if you like great games and graphics.
Rated 9 out of 10 by -THE_BEAST- Beastly Game System
First of all, I would like to say that I am basing this review on simply my experiences. I will not be going with what anyone else says. When I got this system, I was eager to play it. It came with LEGO Indiana Jones and Kung Fu Panda. These games really aren't that good, but their good for maybe a couple of weeks. The Hard Drive is also reliable, you will have a hard time filling it up because after all, it is 60GB. The Gamerscore is one of my favorite things, it is really fun to get achievements, because if you beat a game, but don't get all the achievements, it is fun to go back and try to get them. I also like how you can rip music from a CD onto a hard drive, and play the music while you play the game. Lastly, I will mention the one minor fault I have with the system. The air blowing out of the back is kind of loud, but it is barely noticeable once the game gets going. I would definitely recommend this game to all serious gamers.
Rated 10 out of 10 by haloid It rocks
here are the things about the 360 that rock. 1.xbox live 2.graphics 3.games 4.looks 5.perofrmance 6.multiplayer. there are a lot more awesome things for the 360 but my list would be to long. my favorite games for it are halo 3 cod 4 gears of war madden 09 and rainbow 6 vegas 2. now everyone wants to know which is better the 360 or the ps3. i would definetlly choose the 360. here are some reasons why the 360 is better 1. the online is better 2. the graphics are better 3.the memory is better but only for the elite 4.they just look way better than the ps3. there are more but again it would be too long. what i like about the 360 the most is the online. it is so much fun espaically on halo 3. you probably think i have one but i dont so that sucks. i learned all the stuff about the 360 from my friends. right now they are edit$.i am getting one for chrismas so i am so looking foward to it. my advice get it rather than the ps3
Rated 7 out of 10 by Hockeyfan needs some work
Its and ok system I got my xbox360 Pro 60GB about a year or so ago and played it all the time. It has great graphics and is so fun to play live. I was one of those gamers who played 24/7 and loved my 360.I would take great care of it. It was a bright sunny day and all of a sudden the power went out for less then a second! It turned its self back on and was working fine again. Then it started getting the little black squares on the 360 screen. So I went to make some lunch and it took I don't know 45 mins. Came back down to play some COD4. Sat down turned it on and there it was e74! Aka the one ring of death. I couldn't believe it! Microsoft wanted $100 bucks to fix it and I cant afford it right now. It's a great system game wise but Microsoft needs to fix it up a little more. If you are getting a 360 you SHOULD extend your warranty because it will break after a period of time. Overall great system but needs some work.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Bry2hot4u The NEW Entertainment Good AND Bad
The Good: Superior selection of games, including several console-exclusive titles; all games in high-definition; easy-to-use Dashboard interface; excellent online gaming and communications via Xbox Live; plays hundreds of (but not all) original Xbox titles; doubles as a superior digital media hub and Windows Media Center extender; online Marketplace allows for easy purchases of downloadable full-scale games, mini-games, movies, and TV shows; latest version offers HDMI output with 1080p support. The Bad: Early versions of the console prone to "red ring of death" system crash; noisy exhaust fan and DVD drive; gigantic oversize power supply; no built-in wireless networking or flash media reader; DVD playback has substandard video quality; support for next-gen HD DVD movies requires a bulky external accessory; 20GB hard drive fills up very quickly; online gaming requires a paid subscription to Xbox Live.
Rated 10 out of 10 by DLEIEKRT2 One of the best Products yet.
If you have XBOX LIVE you know that your space just flies away after downloading map packs, videos,and games and since its stuff you paid for you dont necessarliy want to get rid of the stuff you bought, so instead get a console with a bigger hard drive. It works the same as the old one only it has more space better cooling and now you dont have to pay an extra dollars for a bigger hard drive. Unfortunately they didn't make the console smaller (somthing many people were looking forward to) but at least now you have a better option for memory. I had the previous XBOX 360 Pro model and I loved it, but just last month I ran out of space on the hard drive. I purchased the 60GB model today and I have to say that the ammount of space you will have is great. Even with all the games that come on the hard drive you still have orver 50 Gigs. I would definentely recomend this to new and old 360 owners.
