Microsoft Xbox 360

Console Information

This system is also known as:

It had been known for some time that Microsoft were developing a follow-up to their Xbox console, believed to be called the "Xbox 2". On Thursday March 12th 2005, Microsoft officially unveiled this console, known as the "Xbox 360", on a half-hour TV special screened on MTV, however, some of the 200 people who attended the taping of the program, a week earlier, leaked images and specs of the console onto the web prior to the official unveiling.

The Xbox 360 is said to have exceeded many people's expectations, with its extremely realistic, "movie-like" graphics. The console also features a 20GB hard drive and 3 processors enabling high definition graphics and surround sound.

Microsoft intend to outdo Sony's PlayStation 3, which will be the main rival of this system, in order to gain a larger market share. North America's release was 22nd November 2005. The Australian release will be 23rd March 2006 (delayed from the original release date due to high demand elsewhere).
