Xbox 360 Slim (Worth it?)
Pros: This console is eye catching, efficient, and very entertaining with constant undates to improve it.
Cons: It makes a funny unexplainable noise, and does not get good connection in basements.
The Bottom Line:
I definitely recommend this console to anybody looking for a dependable multi-functional gaming system.
I bought this game console for my boyfriend last summer when it was new for almost $300 on the dot. It came with a simple headset, game controller, one game, and all the cord hookups for most TV's.
I have heard of a lot of problems with different game consols like overheating, low memory, freezing up, and most of all lagging. With the Xbox 360 Slim, we have both been using it for about a year, and as long as we keep it on it's side we have no problems with overheating ever. Ocassionally it will make a low persistent droning noise, but if you push on the top gently enough for a couple of seconds it goes away. I do not know what it is from, but it hasn't caused any issues.
I love how Xbox is updated quarterly and I enjoy all the perks it comes with. Through this Xbox console we can watch netflix, ESPN, rent or buy DVD's, buy more games, and so much more. If you go and buy an HDMI cable (Hi-Def cable) and watch your favorite shows through netflix, it is exactly like having a High Definition TV!
There are so many accessories and toys you can purchase in the Xbox section in most stores to keep one busy whenever they are home with nothing to do. Out of all the reviews I have read and considering I have owned a Nintendo, Sega, Playstation I II and III, Wii, and older versions of Xbox, I have the authority to say that in my opinion, the Xbox 360 Slim is the best I have had with the Wii in second place and Playstation III in third.
