It was not too far back that children who had the latest Nintendo 8-bit gaming console or the Sega system as a gift were envied by the ones who didn’t get it. With the passage of time Super Nintendo, NES’s Turbo Graphix 16 and Sega Genesis, all of them became a craze. Most people who are in their twenties will remember being overwhelmed by the remarkable progress in the graphic display and playability of the Sega’s Dreamcast system and the Nintendo 64. Just five years or so back with the coming of Microsoft’s Xbox, Sony’s Play Station and Nintendo’s Game Cube there are numerous gaming systems in the market.
There has been a lot of developments in the Video Gaming industry in the last twenty years or so and from a slow moving hardly visible images on the original Atari games screen such as Pac-Man, Tron and Calga to the modern day bright and life-like images of Tekken, Tomb Raider and Splinter Cell which can be played on Play Station and Xbox. Microsoft made a new move in being the number one in Video Gaming with the launch of Xbox 360, which will be an exceptional experience.
Now the Xbox 360, with video game consoles, is more like a computer which has software and a hardware that help in the working of the video games. The first Xbox was almost like a PC from Microsoft which had a changed Pentium III processor, brighter graphics with better audio capabilities and an OS very much like the Windows 2000. All this is packed in a specialized black box.
For people who believed that the original Xbox was a technological wonder have to try out the new versions to see the changes. It is true that playing on the initial Xbox was spectacular and realistic, but the latest versions of Xbox 360 make the older models pale and old in comparison. The Xbox has been developed from the basic level by Microsoft. It has been a part in the name, the appearance, features and the hardware. New versions of Xbox 360 are completely different as well as a powerful machine when compared to the original Xbox. Quite different from the video game console, the Xbox 360 is a complete media center which lets you play games, rip, download any kind of media, network with people who have this gadget, and stream.
The Xbox 360 has actually revolutionized the world of gaming and we can say that Microsoft has surely reached new levels in video game technology.
