Xbox 360 Consoles, Games & Accessories Buying Guide

The first Xbox 360 created a standard to be followed by the video game industry in the many generations to come. Although the 360 line was discontinued in 2016, picking up their 360 console is a trip down memory lane for many avid gamers.

The Xbox 360 consoles

The first Xbox 360 core models have a composite video cable but no hard drive. The 2006 premium models have a hybrid component with HD output, a wireless controller, and a removable 20GB hard drive. The 360 Elite models were similar to the previous ones but came in matte black and had a 120GB hard drive. The Xbox 360 Arcade has a 256MB memory card but no hard drive. The 360 Super Elite has 250GB storage. The Xbox 360 E has a two-tone colour design and hard drive variants of 250, 500, and 4 GB.

The Xbox 360 games

The Xbox 360 Arcade models came with five live arcade titles: Feeding Frenzy, Uno, Pac-Man Championship Edition, Boom Boom Rocket, and Luxor 2. The Xbox 360 Super Elite included various games like Halo 3, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Forza Motorsport 3, and Halo 3: ODST. Some of the other notable Xbox 360 games include Far Cry 3, Red Dead Redemption, Mass Effect 2, Alan Wake, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Fable II, Blue Dragon, Batman: Arkham City, BioShock, Fallout 3, Dark Souls, Dishonored, Limbo, and Bayonetta.

The Xbox 360 accessories

Xbox 360s can provide output resolution up to 1080p, but most only come with composite cables. An HDMI cable would help in taking advantage of the HD visuals offered by Xbox 360s. The Xbox Wireless headset is lightweight, has great audio depth, and long-lasting battery life. A media remote also provides better control over the wide range of media capabilities offered by the Xbox 360. Although the 360 controller can function as a remote, it shuts off after a while; hence, the remote control is a perfect option.

What is RROD

The Red Ring of Death is an indicator of system failure most common in the earlier versions of the 360 models. One red arc implies hardware failure, two red arcs mean the system is overheating, three red arcs are known as the red ring of death and indicate general hardware failure. Four glowing red arcs suggest that the cable connecting the Xbox and the TV isn't working properly. More recent versions of the 360 models are less prone to the RROD, and a three-year warranty backs up all consoles.
