About this deal

Although not the best-selling console of its generation, the Xbox 360 was deemed by TechRadar to be the most influential through its emphasis on digital media distribution and multiplayer gaming on Xbox Live.

Between January 2011 and October 2013, the Xbox 360 was the best-selling console in the United States for these 32 consecutive months. Consequently, Bungie left a message for the hackers on PartnerNet which read "Winners Don't Break Into PartnerNet". It also lacks the TOSLINK connector found on all other (pre-2010) A/V cables (including the Component HD A/V Cable). In July 2007, this version of the Xbox 360 began appearing with the Zephyr motherboard (the motherboard used in the Elite) which features an HDMI output and an improved GPU heatsink.It is a revision of the S model with a new Xbox One-inspired casing, carrying a more rectangular appearance and a two-tone color scheme. The Xbox 360 continued to be supported by major publishers with new games well into the Xbox One's lifecycle.

Though there are currently no Xbox 360 hard drives on the market that support the new "slim" form factor, Greenberg told us that this 4GB unit "absolutely does have that expansion bay that we have the opportunity to use in the future". This reduction is size is no doubt a fringe benefit of the reduced power draw of the Xbox 360 250GB – 135W, down from the ‘ Jasper‘ units’ 150W. The first live events streamed on Live were the 2012 Revolver Golden Gods, Microsoft's E3 2012 media briefing and the Miss Teen USA 2012 beauty pageant.The 250 GB Kinect Holiday Value Bundle included a physical copy of Kinect Sports: Season Two and Kinect Adventures, and a digital download voucher for Forza Horizon. Dressed to impress: Sleek and lean in a gloss black finish, the Xbox 360 250 GB comes with an internal, removable hard drive and touch-sensitive buttons for switching on/off and disk ejection. Xbox SmartGlass allows for integration between the Xbox 360 console and mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones.

It was shipped to US retailers the same day it was announced (June 14, 2010) and went on sale later that week. The Xbox 360 E, a further streamlined variation of the 360 S with a two-tone rectangular case inspired by Xbox One, was released in 2013. It was first announced on June 1, 2009, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, under the codename, Project Natal.

As well as enjoying exclusives such as additions to the Halo franchise and Gears of War, the Xbox 360 has managed to gain a simultaneous release of games that were initially planned to be PS3 exclusives, including Devil May Cry 4, [81] Ace Combat 6, [82] Virtua Fighter 5, [83] Grand Theft Auto IV, [84] Final Fantasy XIII, [85] Tekken 6, [86] Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, [87] and L. ports, HDMI, S/PDIF, and composite A/V ports, an input for the power supply, and a single custom auxiliary jack that will let you hook up the camera for the forthcoming Kinect motion-based controller. The chassis design itself is updated to good effect, though, with the front having a far more pronounced “X” shape to it – albeit stretched out a little.
