The Xbox 360 Revolution: The Real Deal?

Updated on July 14, 2010

Although there are other video game consoles such as the Playstation and Wii that are available for purchase, the Xbox 360 has truly always been one of the most popular.  Ever since it was first released back in 2005 the Xbox 360 system has had loyal fans and followers.  Some people have said that the Xbox 360 has caused a revolution in the gaming world, while others think this is nothing less than hilarious.  There are a lot of people out there who have serious doubts and do not think that the Xbox is all it has been made up to be.

 For one thing there are always limited quantities of the Xbox 360 which is not only problematic but frustrating as well.  Even now years after it was first released, the system is still on backorder at most video game stores.  You may have to wait several months just to get an answer on pre-order lists so hopefully you don’t’ mind waiting.  The low-end system retails for just under $300 and this is just too much for some people’s pocketbooks.

 There are some games that you will literally not even be able to play until you buy the proper accessories.  Then there is the issue that there seems to be the same characters and basic premise to most of the new games.  The only really noticeable differences are in the graphics which seem to be brighter because they are in high definition.  What all these problems come together to result in is that the Xbox 360 system truly is not all that some people have made it out to be.

 While it is a fantastic video game system that you can enjoy playing, there is truly nothing that makes it anything more special than any other systems on the market today.  There is also a question on why if the Xbox 360 is such a revolution why there are so few new games being released for it.  Of course with everything there are still going to be those loyal fans of the Xbox 360.  Of course there are some avid fans of the Xbox 360 and there is no reason not to be.

 The point is that if there is someone who is trying to decide which video game console to get they should base their decision on the real details.  The idea that the Xbox 360 is some amazing gaming revolution is actually the reason that a lot of people go out and buy it.  For anyone who is just now trying to decide on a video game system to buy, make sure that you take time and consider all details before buying.  It will be well worth it to take a bit of time and make your decision wisely rather than rush it.
