Xbox 360 250Gb - Matt Black Product Details
Released on 08-Aug-2011
First you’ll notice the little things. And we mean that literally. The console itself is smaller – so it’ll fit neatly on the shelf.
Wi-Fi in the house.
These days, everything is wireless. The new Xbox 360 is the only console with 802.11n Wi-Fi built in. You’ll fi nd an unfettered connection to the ever-expanding entertainment possibilities of Xbox LIVE – including a fast and easy way to stream HD fi lms and TV and play games with friends around the world.
Room to grow your entertainment.
While making the outside smaller, we decided to give a pretty serious boost to the inside – from huge to massive in one fell swoop. The built-in 250 GB drive has a ton of room to store fi lms, games, saves, add-ons, photos, music and anything else that you can think of. And it’s removable too, just in case you ever want to take it to a friend’s house.
More ports, more play.
Connect more accessories and storage solutions with added USB ports. Now with a total of 5 ports, (3 back/2 front) you’ll fi nd more places to plug and play. Plus, in addition to the standard HDMI output, we’ve added an integrated optical audio out port for an easier connection to the booming sound of your A/V receiver.
A touching development.
It might not seem like a big deal, but the cool factor of capacitive touch buttons cannot be over stated. Everyone has grown accustomed to the non-button buttons on fancy smart phones, so we’ve added that functionality to the power and eject buttons.
With the all-new and much quieter Xbox 360, the noise you’ll hear is your own laughing, cheering and playing.
Hold on to your socks.
You’re not ready. Not yet anyway. Kinect is making YOU the controller and it’s going to blow you away. With a dedicated, proprietary port, the Xbox 360 250 GB is built specifi cally to connect seamlessly with the Xbox 360 Kinect Sensor – and will have you up off the sofa and into the world
The following are key features of the Xbox 360 250 GB:
- Dressed to impress: Sleek and lean in a matte 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.
- The Xbox 360 that you’ve been waiting for: Connect with a faster wireless connection than any other console2. Enjoy blazing speeds with built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi while streaming fi lms or playing games on Xbox LIVE®. Store more games and entertainment content with 250 GB of hard drive space.
- Kinect ready: Kinect will work with every Xbox 360, but the Xbox 360 250 GB console is specially designed for the easiest connection to controller-free fun. Just connect the sensor directly to the proprietary port on your console — no extra power supply needed.
- Backwards compatible: Don’t worry; you’ll still be able to connect the controllers and any other accessories that you already own to Xbox 360 250 GB while playing the best blockbuster games like “Halo Reach” and “Fable III”. (External Xbox 360 Hard Drives and Xbox 360 Memory Units are not compatible with the new Xbox 360 console.)
If you've been enjoying the thick soup of rumour that's been swirling around the next Xbox console, it's time to reach for a crusty roll and start mopping up - Microsoft has set a date for the official reveal: May 21st. You've got until then to savour those last few spoonfuls of frenzied speculation. After that, it's on to the main course of delicious fact-steak drizzled with anticipation sauce.
For some, the next generation can't come soon enough. This year marks the Xbox 360's eighth birthday, which makes it positively mature ages in console years. To put it in perspective, when the 360 launched in November 2005, there was no such thing as an iPhone or iPad, Twitter was still something that canaries did and Facebook was an obscure website exclusively for American college kids.
Obviously the world has changed but how will Microsoft respond to the new landscape? An improved Kinect sensor will be built into the console, reckon some. It'll require an internet connection at all times and will block second hand games, say others.
Back in 2005, Microsoft managed to get a head start on SONY by launching the 360 way ahead of the PlayStation 3. This time around, it's SONY that has beaten Microsoft to the punch, revealing the features of the PlayStation 4, if not the actual console itself, earlier this year.
Microsoft has kept quiet so far, but now we know there's less than a month to go before everyone will have their cards on the table. Then the real fun begins.
New Xbox will be revealed on May 21st (25/04/2013)
