Microsoft Xbox, is a video game system developed by Microsoft and released on 8th Nov 2001. It is like a significantly higher version of Playstation, which is another brand of video game system. There are various kinds of Xbox systems with varied features. Xbox 360 is the latest known version to hit the market and was released on May 12, 2005. There are different kinds of games available for it. This is the next generation Xbox with a more powerful console and was produced by Microsoft in association with IBM, ATI and SiS. The greatest feature it has is internet connectivity for playing online games. It provides one of the best online gaming services in the market. If you have a broadband connection at home, then you can take advantage of this gaming opportunity.

Microsoft is day-by-day upgrading and adding features to their video game systems. Xbox has training games and controllers for becoming familiar with the operation of the system while using it for the first time. The games of shooting and racing are very popular. These are often found at cyber cafes too, where you can play games on their machines. There are online games that can be played together with numerous opponents at one time, over the internet.

Xbox has four controller ports that allow for easy multiplayer gaming is easy to handle too. The multi-signal audio and video connections provide simple and easy hookup to television and home theatre systems. Internet connectivity allows online gaming. Hard drive storage space is provided as well. The main unit of the Xbox 360 features a port on the top to which a custom-housed hard drive unit can be attached in sizes of either 20 or 120 GB. Inside, the Xbox 360 uses the triple-core IBM designed Xenon as its CPU. Graphics processing is handled by the ATI Xenos which has 10 MB of embedded eDRAM. Its main memory pool is 512 MB in size.

When the first Xbox 360s were released in 2005, there were some complaints of technical problems. Later, these problems were corrected and all consoles manufactured after June 2007 have a second CPU heatsink to reduce overheating. To aid consumers with defective consoles, Microsoft has extended the Xbox 360's manufacturer's warranty to three years. If you plan to buy a used console, be careful. It might give you technical problems if it was manufactured before June 2007, and the original warranty may have expired as well.

The system is provided with parental control locking, so that parents can choose what is suitable content for their children. These game systems are giving strong competition to other brands like Playstation. Games like Assassins Creed and Warfare are similar to Halo 3 and Dead Rising.
