The Xbox 360 is a seventh generation game console and is the successor to Microsoft's Xbox video game console, developed in co-operation with IBM, ATI, Samsung Electronics and SiS.

Upon its release, the Xbox 360 became the first console to have a simultaneous launch across the three major regions, as well as the first console to provide wireless controllers as a standard. It also serves as the first entrant in a new generation of game consoles and is competing against Sony's PlayStation 3 and Nintendo's Wii. Microsoft believes that its push towards high-definition gaming, year-early head start and its Xbox Live online gaming service will help the console be successful. The Xbox 360 can also be System Linked with other Xbox 360s as well as the original Xbox, allowing multiplayer games to take place much more easily among gamers.

There have been a few different types of the Xbox 360, including the Core, Arcade, Premium and the Elite. However, special editions have also been available. These are like the Halo 360 had a physical Halo theme as well as a special controller.

Fourth place was Call of Duty 4 at 3.1 million copies. Rounding off the top five is Forza Motorsport 2 with 3 million copies, although that also includes the free copies that came with every 360 Elite model. The most critically acclaimed game was Grand Theft Auto 4, with an average Meta-Score of 98 out of 100. Second was Bioshock, 96 out of 100, third was Orange Box, which also got a 96 out of 100.

"Red Ring of Death"

General hardware failure, or the "Red Ring of Death".
.

The "Red Ring of Death", often abbreviated to RRoD, is a term coined by Xbox 360 users to refer to the three (occasionally one, two, or four) flashing red lights around the power button that appear when the Xbox encounters a "general hardware failure". When an Xbox displays the Red Ring of Death, usually there is a problem with an internal component. Frequently, this error is caused by uneven heat distribution inside the console which causes the motherboard to warp out of shape. This in turn results in the GPU being separated from the board at one or more corners. Usually, when one receives a Red Ring of Death error, they must send the console in to Microsoft for repair or replacement, unless they want to attempt the repair themselves (this will void the warranty). Its name stems from the fact that often the problem is irreparable or considered expensive to fix. It could have also spawned from the term "Blue Screen of Death" which comes from Windows users of an error that featured a Blue Screen. There's also a "Red Screen of Death", which more closely correlates to "Red Ring of Death".

  • One Red Light: Graphics error.
  • Two Red Lights: Overheating, very common if Xbox is in a small space.
  • Three Red Lights: General hardware failure.
  • Four Red Lights A/V cord is not plugged in or can't be recognized. Though this isn't really a hardware issue, a new A/V cable may be needed.

Trivia

  • The Xbox 360 is also commonly called "360".
  • All three original Xbox Halo discs are backwards compatible on Xbox 360; Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2 and Halo 2 Multiplayer Map Pack.
  • There is a Halo 3 edition of the Xbox 360. It was released on September 16th 2007, and has other things in the box, like a wired Halo 3 headset.
  • The next Halo game to be released for the Xbox 360 is Halo: Reach.
