revolution of xbox ( the best game console of Microsoft )

(Our Tech Blog) Good afternoon loyal blog readers of this blog technology. In writing this article, I am still in pain. hehehe, like a few days ago. But still, I would not miss to update the article on this blog.

Okay, enough Down to brass tacks, in this paper I will discuss about the revolution of the xbox. There are no know the xbox? Maybe in a developing country like Indonesia, this gaming console is not known. Because in Indonesia, a Playstation dominating the market of this country.

However, in other countries. Console gaming is quite popular. Xbox is a sixth generation game console. And first released in 2001 in America and in 2002 in Japan. To date in 2011 the Xbox had a revolution as much as 2 times. That is the newest version is the Xbox 360.

Let us see together what interesting features are there in the first and second-generation Xbox:


Like quoted from whatconsole, Microsoft's first serious games-only solution claims to blow away the Sony Playstation 2 and was released for under £300. The Xbox always had a good chance of competing as it has better graphics provided by nVidia famous for its GeForce graphics cards sold for PCs. The Sega Dreamcast was the first console to feature PC-like components and PC code-like OS system and an old PowerVR graphics as used by a few people years ago.

The Xbox runs at 733 MHz, which is twice the speed of the PlayStation's graphics and aims to do 150 to 200 million polygons per sec compared to 66 million or so that the Playstation 2 can realistically do. The Xbox also has DVD playback if you buy the additional unit and should include at least a 6 GB hard drive to speed things up.

Microsoft also claim that 60% of the games will be made by themselves which is relatively high, and although it may help them in dominating the world, Microsoft do not make the best games for the PC, but companies like Electronic Arts do! There are a lot of on-going costs associated with the Xbox, including game prices and the DVD function explained above. Also the games are not as good as we would have liked, apart from Halo.

The Xbox was a successful introduction to the console market for Microsoft. It had successfully implemented a reliable online system and was a very good alternative to the PS2, but a little too late to make a massive dent in Sony's sales.

Okay, I will discuss the most recent console output from Microsoft.

Console is the latest output from Microsft and the series continued from the Xbox 360, the name of the Xbox console this Christmas. Christmas is actually an add on or an additional tool in the form of a camera sensor for the Xbox 360.

Systems used in Christmas utilize gestures as input various commands, so the console is no longer necessary to use a controller. In addition without using a controller, also Christmas displays features that never existed in any other console, such as voice recognition, capable mengscan various objects, and Christmas is also equipped with the ability to play movies and do video calling. Xbox spec of Christmas are as follows:

Kim is one of the party responsible for the XBox development program that Microsoft's current focus on the experience in the living room (living room experience). In this case the mobile device that is lightweight and can be grasped one of the supporters.
