New Xbox 360
So I recently purchased one of the new slimmer xbox 360s. I had owned an old one in the past but sold it due to boredom, however with the release of Halo Reach coming out soon I decided to pick up another one.
So what are my first thoughts? Well it is definitely quieter like they claim. You can hardly tell it's turned on it's that quiet. Another plus is the lack of "buttons". All of the buttons were upgraded to touch sensors like most tvs these days. At first it was a pain when I was trying to plug in everything as I kept accidentally hitting the eject button, but that was my own fault.
All the new features on xbox live are also great. The last time I played was a year and a half ago, and now I see they've got facebook, and the ability to rent HD movies. It really turns the console into a whole social and media center.
Overall I'm quite impressed with it, and the consoles these days are rather inexpensive compared to two to three years ago. I would definitely recommend you go out and buy one if you are into games and don't already have on, even if you are a ps3 type of person just pick it up for the xbox exclusive, I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed.
