Xbox 360 4GB Console & Kinect Bundle
The Xbox 360 is Microsoft’s second games console, and has proved to be a massive success among both casual players and hardcore gamers, hosting a wide range of the biggest selling games, and also offering impressive online and media playing capabilities.
The new Xbox 360 offers a much more compact body than the original model, with a stylish angular design and a contemporary piano black finish. Most importantly, it now offers integrated fast N-grade wireless connectivity, so you can connect to your home wireless network straight out of the box.
This version of the new Xbox 360 comes with built in storage of 4GB, to allow you to store your saved games, as well as videos, music and demos. You can also upgrade your Xbox 360’s storage at a later date, by buying an add-on 250GB hard drive, which you can easily fit yourself.
The Xbox 360 comes with five USB sockets to allow you to connect useful peripherals such as wireless charging leads as well as USB storage devices (the Xbox now lets you save games on a standard USB key up to 16GB) and even your personal media player, to let you copy music or watch videos and films via your Xbox.
Connecting your Xbox 360 to Xbox LIVE will allow you access to a wide range of online activities – play Halo: Reach multiplayer against your mates, or even people the other side of the world, or stream live movies and television in HD. Xbox LIVE will also allow you to listen to music via last.fm, download demos, videos and items to customise your Xbox LIVE account, or social network with your friends via Facebook and Twitter.
This Xbox 360 bundle also includes a Microsoft Kinect motion control sensor that will just plug straight in, allowing you to enjoy fun motion control gaming, and even control your Xbox Dashboard with just a simple swipe of the hand.
The Xbox 360 offers an impressive line-up of games, from bestsellers such as Call of Duty: Black Ops, Red Dead Redemption and Assassin’s Creed to great family games such as Rock Band and the Kinect motion control range. The Xbox 360 also offers a range of great console exclusives, including the smash hit Halo series, as well as Gears of War and Fable, giving it plenty of credibility among serious gamers.
The Xbox 360 comes with one wireless controller, as well as a one month free Xbox LIVE Gold trial membership, and a composite AV cable.
