If you are an ardent fan of gaming, you don't quite need an introduction to Microsoft's Xbox 360. This gaming console is the exclusive platform for some of the best games ever developed, and if you don't own it, you don't have any idea as to what you are missing. One of the best gaming consoles available today, the Xbox 360 also boasts of its compatibility with some of the all-time greats.
Microsoft Xbox 360: An Overview
Microsoft launched the Xbox 360 as a successor to its first gaming console, the Xbox, in May 2005. A seventh generation gaming console, the Xbox 360 locked horns with Sony's PlayStation 3 and Nintendo's Wii on its release. Powered by a 3.2 GHz PowerPC Tri-Core Xenon CPU and 500 MHz ATI Xenos graphics, it was an instant hit among the gaming fans the world over. By the first half of 2010, as many as 41.7 million units were sold in various parts of the world. A large part of the credit for its success goes to the wide range of games it supports and titles which are exclusive to it.
