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. As of
September 30, 2011, 57.6 million Xbox 360
consoles have been sold worldwide
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.
Several 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 US or
Sky Go in the UK.
At their E3 presentation on June 14, 2010,
Microsoft announced a redesigned Xbox 360 that
would ship on the same day. The redesigned
console is slimmer than the previous Xbox 360
model and features integrated 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi,
TOSLINK S/PDIF optical audio output, 5 USB 2.0
ports (compared to the 3 from older versions)
and a special AUX port.Older models of the Xbox
360 have since been discontinued. The first
new console to be released features a 250 GB
hard drive, while a later, less expensive SKU
features 4 GB internal storage.
With the announcement of the Xbox 360 S,
Microsoft have said that they believe that the
console is only mid-way through its life-cycle
and will continue through 2015. However, unnamed
sources have claimed that Microsoft's next video
game console is being slated for release as
early as the 2013 holiday season. Development of
the system has also been implied by updates
Microsoft employees have made to their resumes,
which state that they were working on the next
