Xbox 360
    Xbox 360 is the predecessor of Xbox One and Microsoft’s console that made the biggest impact on eSports through digital media distribution.

    Xbox 360 is a seventh generation game console by Microsoft, developed as the successor to Xbox and released in 2006. It is the second brand in the Xbox series and the console directly competes with PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii, where 360 made amazing improvements to the social aspects of gaming and many would argue paved the way to further development of console eSports.


    Microsoft’s Xbox 360 is run by a 3.2 GHz PowerPC Tri-core Xenon with 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM memory. There are various Hard disk drive options including 20, 60, 120, 250 and 320 GB of storage while it also allowed memory cards, storage chips, USB storage devices, and Cloud. The graphics are controlled via a 500 MHz ATI Xenos card and outputs Composite video, S-Video, RGB SCART, D-Terminal, VGA and later HDMI with 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p resolutions.

    Major Games and eSports

    With more than 85 million units sold, Xbox 360 has made a great impact of eSports and largely increased the competition to dominate the console gaming market. Microsoft actually made some groundbreaking moves which proved essential to the online gaming and eSports through digital media distribution and Xbox Live. Xbox thus provided a console to host eSports events, organize tournaments and easily track results while also offering a wide array of items to purchase, from games to more than 30 million music tracks.

    Through blockbuster series exclusive to Xbox, such as brands of Forza, Gears of War, Halo  and the whole series, Fable and many more, Xbox took a prominent role in the console and online gaming. It’s not just for the exclusive titles, though, as online players started massively using the Live for Call of Duty events, EA lead titles, and games such as Red Dead Redemption.

    The Reception

    Xbox 360 is largely considered an essential step in online gaming and eSports development in the console communities, with benchmark products such as controllers, the Kinect camera, and the 360 pad which possibly still holds the record as the fastest-selling gaming product in its first days.

    For all those who complain that Xbox 360 is “so yesterday” I’d say this: show some respect you ungrateful brats. This is the device that brought eSports to consoles and allowed us to break free from the dictatorship of personal computers. Obviously, it’s not as good as the Xbox One but at the time of its release, it was a miracle of technology. I still have a lot of fun playing classic games on it.

    The Xbox 360 is as good as it gets. This console could go down as the best, most reliable console ever made. I played on the 360 for over 7 years, and I loved every minute of it. Although it's outdated now, it still brings back good memories!
