The Xbox 360 is the second video game console produced by Microsoft, and the successor to the Xbox. The Xbox 360 competes with Sony's PlayStation 3 and Nintendo's Wii as part of the seventh generation of video game consoles.
Some major features of the Xbox 360 are its integrated Xbox Live service that allows players to compete online, download arcade games, game demos, trailers, TV shows, music and movies and its Windows Media Center multimedia capabilities. The Xbox 360 also offers region specific access to third-party media streaming services such as Netflix and ESPN in the USA or Sky Player in the UK.
The Xbox 360 was officially unveiled on MTV on May 12, 2005, with detailed launch and game information divulged later that month at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). The console sold out completely upon release in all regions except in Japan. As of June 2010, there are over 41.7 million Xbox 360 consoles worldwide.

Thanks. Really impressed with the pricing and the service levels. Ordered my Elite at 2.30 on Tuesday afternoon and had courier driver knocking on my door before noon the next day. Always wary using a website for the first time but I can’t fault your service at all. And that’s why I thought I would make my thoughts public. Thanks again

I think that the console is good but PS3 is better
Good Value 02 Aug 2010
Good price for a good console. Had one before but suffered from the ring of death, which was really annoying and Microsoft were hopeless. Gave up with trying to get it changed in the end and just bought a new one. Now Jasper board fitted problem is completely sorted. Pleased with purchase
