Xbox 360 and its impact on my gaming life

I must admit that the Xbox was always a lame console to me when it was out. I was in Playstation 2 mood, and I would always look for how it was better than Xbox. I never really gave the Xbox a chance. That's a shame looking back on it now. I bought an Xbox 360 in 2010, last year, because I couldn't really care less about the Nintendo Wii, and Playstation 3 was a bit too expensive for me last year. And boy have I been suprised. This console is such a wonderful console, especially the online factor! The Xbox Live is by far the best online service for any of the console manufacturers. Xbox was released in 2001 by Microsoft, and was the start of the Xbox live concept. It was the 2nd console, behind Sega's Dreamcast, that would allow you to play games with other people around the world. But unlike the Dreamcast, this console wouldn't die and the online aspect of it would become a game changer, no pun intended.

This was Microsofts first console attempt at creating gaming hardware, after collaborating with Sega to put Windows CE in the console. The Xbox Live gaming service would have over 20 million subscribers playing games, which was in line with what Sega wanted for their Dreamcast. Microsoft achieved that and so much more. It would end up selling upwards of 24 million consoles, not a bad start for the company. But again, I didn't really care that much with being in love initially with Dreamcast and then with Playstation 2. But the Xbox 360 has really changed that for me. The Xbox 360 on its own is great to me, having really fun games and awesome graphics that really can't be beaten in the current console war.

But in addition to that, the Xbox Live service is really what made this console stick out to me. Once I got Xbox Live membership and played with it, I was hooked. The fact that you can download demos, complete games, add-ons, and play with millions has really been awesome to me! You can use a headset to talk to others, from foreign countries and personal friends. I love the fact that you can do that, it's really a whole new direction in gaming that you can play with others, not AI characters in games. You can even go through the main games story with others on the Xbox Live service, which is just awesome! That's like playing Sonic and Tails, me as Sonic and somebody in another state as Tails, and playing together. The 90s, when I was growing up, had no idea that this would be possible, and yet here it is. I also love how you can download the old Sega Genesis games and other arcade games, it's really amazing what this console can do.

Then Microsoft announced the Kinect, a hands free motion controller, and that's been really cool as well. It's fun to be able to jump around and move like you're really driving around and the game shows it! And you can use it as a microphone to talk to others online, create videos, and even take pictures. It's something that's truly revolutionary and will keep this console around for quite some time. And that's something I'm looking forward to.
