Get the scoop on the new Xbox 360 gaming console!

Elijah Wood gave the world the 411 on the new Xbox 360 on May 12, 2005 at 9:30pm on MTV. This is the game system that's going to be competing with the Playstation 3 and Nintendo Revolution. The brand new game console is way smaller than the old Xbox, it's white and it's loaded with cool new stuff. If you missed it, or if you want to see all the info again, we have it all right here. How fast it is, what it can do and 101 other reasons why the Xbox 360 will be the toy that every gamer wants!

How Much Power Does the Xbox 360 Have?

  • Three 3.2 Ghz CPU chips.
  • Custom-built video card with 10 MB imbedded DRAM.
  • Supports HDTV.
  • 512 MB RAM.
  • 20 GB removable hard drive.
  • Wireless controllers.
  • Interchangeable faceplates so you can pick your style.
  • This means power and lots of it! The Xbox 360 has what it takes to make video games scream. Plus, the removable hard drive means you can take your saved games to a friend's place and play 'em there!

Everybody gets a free month of Xbox Live Gold with video messaging, celebrity gaming matchups, gamer profiles to help find good games online and even tournaments where your gaming skills can win you prizes!

    Xbox 360 Final Details

    The final word is that it's dropping in time for Christmas 2005 and the word is it'll cost $300-$400 US to buy one. Another big thing is whether you'll be able to play old Xbox games on the Xbox 360 - that's a question that's still up in the air.

    Word is in from Microsoft about the Xbox 360 playing older games! The answer is: Kinda. It'll run certain "Top-Selling" games. Blecch.

    Basically, no, it won't. Except for a couple of games. Microsoft has a list of the compatible games online, check it out at the link below.

  • Got something to say about the Xbox 360?
  • 1This is tight, I wish I had one of these. All you need to do is make it smaller and put a screen on it to play it anywhere and make it different colors.

    1This is the bomb but it should have like a screen on the controller instead of the big old box and it would be lighter.
