Xbox 360 4GB Console Product Details
Released on 20/08/2010
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 find an unfettered connection to the ever-expanding entertainment possibilities of Xbox LIVE – including a fast and easy way to stream HD films and TV and play games with friends around the world.
Room to grow your entertainment.
The built-in 4 GB drive has room to store game saves.
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 find 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 4 GB is built specifically 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 4 GB:
- Dressed to impress: Sleek and matte black finish, the Xbox 360 4 GB comes with an internal, removable flash 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 films or playing games on Xbox LIVE®. Store more games and entertainment content with 4 GB of flash drive space.
- Kinect ready: Kinect will work with every Xbox 360, but the Xbox 360 4 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 4 GB while playing the best blockbuster games like “Halo Reach” and “Fable III”. (External Xbox 360 flash Drives and Xbox 360 Memory Units are not compatible with the new Xbox 360 console.)
Please note: Preowned Xbox may not include headset or ethernet cable.
Xbox 360 celebrates its fifth birthday
Happy birthday, Xbox 360! Microsoft's lovable dream machine turns 5 this week in Europe, and like most gamers, we couldn't be happier with the kind of entertainment it's given us over that time.
So it's been half a decade, then, since the console swept onto store shelves without much more than Perfect Dark Zero, Kameo, and a little game called Call of Duty 2 to play on it. Since then, we've seen new Halo games, racers like the Project Gotham and Forza series continuing to thrive, brand new treats like Gears of War, and, of course, family favourites like Viva Pinata and a handful of Sonic the Hedgehog titles.
The Xbox 360 has also helped take console gamers online more, following the Master Chief into battle in Slayer matches, and helping us rank up in the Call of Duty games. And now, it's even turning players into controllers with the Kinect motion-sensing peripheral that powers titles like Dance Central and Kinectimals.
All told, that's not a bad showing for a console that's only five years old. Happy Birthday Xbox 360 - we can't wait to see what the next few years bring as, alongside the PC, PS3 and Wii, you continue to redefine videogames.
Action-packed online gaming fun!
Who's it best for?
Home to many of gaming's top franchises and boasting the Xbox Live service, Xbox 360 is the serious player's pick for competitive action gaming.
If you're looking for a decent family console, don't be put off by the Xbox's hard-core reputation. The Xbox has family settings, which allows you to regulate what games and DVDs your kids can play and watch on and offline.
Plus there are hundreds of terrific games for kids aged 3 and up.
Two words: Xbox Live.

Xbox Live membership starts at around 0 per year. Plus, the Sky TV packages will be subscription based too.
No built-in Web browser
This means you can't surf the net in the traditional sense. I know, I know - it's confusing. But Xbox LIVE isn't a Web browser; it's a special application designed by Xbox which requires Internet access. That said; you can still access Twitter and Facebook via Xbox LIVE.
Not as easy as the Wii
At the moment, Xbox isn't as easy to pick up and play as the Wii. The controls aren't as intuitive, and require a little more dexterity and practice. However there are some exciting new innovations in the pipeline which Xbox hope to change all that.
Xbox LIVE. Need I say more? See WHY BUY?
Xbox Live is NOT FREE. It's a subscription based service. Xbox Live Gold Membership will cost you in the region of 0 per year. Xbox Live Silver Membership won't cost you a penny, but you don't get access to all the good stuff that makes Xbox Live worthwhile.
Xbox LIVE Silver is a free service that allows any Xbox 360 user with a broadband connection to get online and interact with the Xbox LIVE community.

What do you need to get online?
The simplest way to get hooked up is to purchase an Xbox LIVE Starter Kit which comes with everything you need to jump in and explore everything Xbox Live has to offer! Once you've got this, simply go to the dashboard, follow the onscreen instructions and you're A for Away. In order to get your Xbox online you will need a Broadband Internet connection.
Buying games online:
Purchase games using Microsoft points or a credit card. Games are downloaded directly to your console and your purchase history is stored by Xbox LIVE, meaning you can delete games and re-download them again if you run out of space. Microsoft points can be purchased through Xbox LIVE Marketplace or in your local GAME store.
Whilst not essential, having the right accessories can really enhance your gaming experience. Here are some of the key accessories our Xbox Xperts recommend for enhanced game play:
- Xbox 360 Wireless Adaptor.
Unlike the PS3 the Xbox 360 doesn't come with built-in wireless broadband compatibility. This handy little adaptor will ensure you can move your console anywhere in the house and still play online using Xbox LIVE via your home network.
Personalise your gaming experience with an Xbox faceplate. Change your faces whenever you like to match your personality or your mood.
- Memory Unit.
Xbox 360 Memory Units allow you to save your in-game achievements and unique gamer profiles and carry them around with you. Just plug it in and save away.
- Xbox 360 Wireless Controller.
The Xbox 360 Wireless Controller lets you enjoy a 30-foot range and up to 40 hours of life on two AA batteries.
The Xbox 360 Headset heightens the experience of the Xbox LIVE online gaming community, allowing you to strategize with team mates or just chat with friends while playing your favourite games.
- Chat pad.
This bolts onto the bottom of your Wireless Controller and allows you to type messages to friends on MSN while playing games.
