xbox 360 review new vs old
I love the look of the new 360. But I will save my pennies, unless my old X-Box wants to kick the bucket!!
Thanks for breaking this down Chris. I’ve only had to replace my 360 once, but thankfully it was still under warranty. I’m told that the newer or pre-black 360’s have better cooling systems and processors that don’t overheat as easily, but I still avoid playing it over two hours a day due to fear of the red ring. After watching your video, I won’t be upgrading my xbox anytime soon.
Thanks for this vid. I definitely won’t be wasting my money on one of those. I refuse to get one unless they drop paying for live completely. As if Microsoft needs any more money.
Thanks for comparing the old X-Box and new X-Box but since I still have to pay to play games online, I ‘ll just stick to using my PS3 and Wii online. Thanks for doing the comparison, it really made me feel better about not getting a new XBox360.
Considering my 360 (a kickass halo 3 limited edition one) is just there to collect dust and play Sonic Unleashed (and occasionally viva pinata), i don’t need to worry about upgrading to 360S
seriusly why did all your new reviews are too short ?
Ugh, I hate having to pay extra for those stupid data transfer cables. Nice vid though.
Although I agree that it’s not worth to just upgrade to the new one if you already have a working one. However, I find a lot of your a bit misinformed. 3 things you didn’t mention:
1.)For smaller data transfer, you can use a USB Flash Drive (memory stick) in one of the USB ports they both have. Still inconvenient so this is the least worth even mentioning.
2.)The new one also has an HDMI output for true 1080p, which the older white style did not. It wasn’t until the Xbox Elite (black older style looking one) that they had this as an output option.
3.)The Xbox Live card you get with the older, isn’t even needed. I’ve gotten mine within 6 moths of it’s release, and it never came with a card. I friend of mine got the newer style in the last few months and it wasn’t there either. It’s built into the systems internal memory that you are making your first Xbox Live account, and upon making a free (silver) one, it lets you know you get 1 month of gold for free. The card is just for aesthetics.
All in all a good video, though I can tell you are more of a PS3/Wii guy and it shows in this video. Don’t let being a fan of something skew or misinform just because your covering a competitor.
you presented a valid argument but I wanted to show how the new xbox is not compatible with previously packaged items. And yes i realize that they offer you a free xbox membership when you sign up, but the card i’m talking about gives anyone a month free, even current members. It was a nice bonus when I bought the older version. Your correct about the HDMI output, an oversight on my part.
thanks for watching though!
All good Chris, I understand your angle with the card being something physical that you could hand off to a friend. I think you should do a review of the differences in the PS3 versions next. Older vs Slim. Keep up the good work on your videos, man.
Nice review IG
just to point sumin out, kinect will work on the old consoles.
you get an adaptor that plugs into a USB port on the xbox and into the mains supply and kinect plugs into that
I like the new Xbox.It has 250 GB of memory.
