  • From my experience (I currently own a Pro and Arcade) they are identical performance wise, but the Arcade operates much quieter
  • All things considered, I recommend getting an Arcade and any necessary accessories (as all things sold in console packages are available separately), because the Arcade is quieter, and due to the problems older models have had it features some hardware revisions that supposedly makes it a more reliable piece of hardware than the other models
  • I purchased Elder Scrolls 4 and Call of Duty 2 to begin with at $60 each, and now both titles are under $30.and are still among the best games made in the past 5 years
  • Overall I think the 360 is one of the best game systems made, and if not for the crippling hardware failures of 2 years ago, would be a complete 10 out of 10

      The Microsoft Xbox 360 is the most versatile video game console ever created. I say ‘video game console’ because the PS3 is considered an Entertainment Console, which infers it’s main purpose is to provide media options while the Xbox 360 is made for gaming. This singular focus and difference in machine purpose dictates a lot of what makes the 360 so much better for gaming to me than the PS3.

      The 360 comes in multiple available SKUs, with the most readily available being the Elite (Console plus 120 GB HDD, controller, headset and 2 games), Pro (Console plus 60 GB HDD, controller, headset and game)


      and Arcade (Console with 256MB built-in RAM, wireless controller and game). All are good out the box, though the Elite and Pro models are best if you expect to use online and download content.

      From my experience (I currently own a Pro and Arcade) they are identical performance wise, but the Arcade operates much quieter. The built in 256MB memory is good enough for saving profiles, game saves, and some content.

      All things considered, I recommend getting an Arcade and any necessary accessories (as all things sold in console packages are available separately), because the Arcade is quieter, and due to the problems older models have ...


      • had it features some hardware revisions that supposedly makes it a more reliable piece of hardware than the other models.

        Beyond the hardware, the game selection for the 360 is great to me. It has a smorgasbord of games spanning genres and difficulties, and now that we are a few years in the older games, which are still quality, are at a great price. I purchased Elder Scrolls 4 and Call of Duty 2 to begin with at $60 each, and now both titles are under $30…and are still among the best games made in the past 5 years.

        If you are an online player, Xbox

        Live (sold separately, but offered as a 1 month trial out of the box) will be a regularly used service, available only on Xbox 360.

        Overall I think the 360 is one of the best game systems made, and if not for the crippling hardware failures of 2 years ago, would be a complete 10 out of 10. But those problems, and the confusing SKUs, lower its value as a platform to me to an 8. But if you don’t have a next-gen system, this is the one to get.
