With the number of gaming consoles that are present in the market, each one being manufactured by well established companies, it can be difficult to ascertain which one of them is the best option to spend your money on. It also gets harder with the advancements in technology and its implications on the dynamic nature of the gaming consoles. If you find yourself in a similar position you have come to the right place to help you make that choice.
First of all, the estimated average life span of a gaming console is around five years. This does not mean that your gaming console will suddenly cease to exist exactly after five years; rather what it implies is that within this time-frame, manufacturers are most likely to introduce a more advanced version of the current gaming console. Hence, if you are the kind of gaming enthusiast that thrives on cutting edge technology, then you should preferably buy your console at the beginning of the standard 5 year period. This way, you will beat the possibility of investing your hard earned money in a device that has been around for a while and hence has the chance of being deemed obsolete.
This is one of the reasons why the Xbox 360 is a fantastic option. The technology that is device is built around is cutting-edge, superior, unparalleled and according to most reviewers, the ‘must-have’ gaming console. The Xbox 360 brings to gamers a world fascinating features- superior online gaming experience, high performance CPU, wireless controllers and a powerful graphics card. Although the Xbox 360 surpassed the previous version within four years of the latter’s release, the previous Xbox’s lifespan has still been extended since over 200 admired Xbox games are also compatible with the Xbox 360.
There is still a section of the gamers that are delaying buying the Xbox 360. This is perhaps because the PlayStation 3 was scheduled to be released in sometime. However, it is worth mentioning that although the PlayStation 3 may have technology that the Xbox 360 doesn’t, it is also going to cost an additional $200 or more to own a PlayStation 3. This additional investment is all for the Blu-ray HD player – a format that is still not available on most movies.
Hence, given the current scenario the Xbox 360 seems the best way to stay ahead of the pack. So, go get your own Xbox 360 before the others beat you to it.
