The New Xbox 360 S: Is It Worth the Money?

The Xbox 360 is one of the most popular games consoles of all time. It has a bigger user base and more games than both the Wii and PlayStation 3. With its popularity remaining high and with the upcoming launch of the Kinect add-on, Microsoft have decided to launch a new slim line Xbox 360, but is it worth the money?

Hell yeah it's worth it. If I had not bought a Elite Model a few months ago I probably would have went with that model. Same price Wifi built in(bout time) 250HDD(lots of space) slick new look , Less noise for 299$.

now if MS could bring in some more exclusive games.

tatotiburon3050d ago

i sold muy modern warfare edition to buy this slim...why don't you sell your elite?

IdleLeeSiuLung3050d ago

I consider the MW2 edition, the only 360 so far to have adorned special artwork on it. Even the RE5 edition only sported a color change.

I'm keeping my MW2 console, but then again I love IW's CoD. Instead I might buy my 4th Xbox when the 360 S comes with special edition console with artwork. Maybe sell of my elite that isn't MW2....

I_find_it_funny3050d ago

If you already own 3600 - 100% not worth :)

SixZeroFour3050d ago

technically speaking, didnt the halo3 edition sport a bit of decal besides color change?

IdleLeeSiuLung3050d ago

Yes, you are correct. The Halo 3 LE console did have artwork on it, albeit somewhat minimalistic.

That was a pretty nice looking console, but I believe you were lucky if you got a Falcon with those. The vast majority of the console released was the older one.

so i'm not gonna spend and extra $300 when i don't have too. it's the same reason why i didn't buy a ps3 slim when my 60 gig (upgraded to 250) still working perfectly fine.

morkendo3050d ago (Edited 3050d ago )

why should i buy it?
why are you even asking that dumb Question?
do it have blu-ray?? nope

enough said

SOAD3050d ago

Does the PS3 do everything? Or is that a tired marketing slogan that you are unashamedly pandering like a Sony shill?

SixZeroFour3050d ago

ill buy the ps3 when it does what its slogan claims...or atleast when it can cool my drink and cook my food at the same time...then ill consider it to be able to do

SaberEdge3050d ago

If you don't already have a 360 it is a great option. If you already have a 360 it still might be worth trading in your older model. The 360 S runs a lot cooler and quieter. And of course it also has a much bigger hard drive, as well as built in wi-fi. I also simply like the way it looks.

n4gno3050d ago (Edited 3050d ago )

great option, if the ps3 don't exist.

funny quote :

"Do you like the PS3s exclusives more or the 360s exclusives more? (lol : "no i prefer less and inferior games")

Do you mind the XBL fees? (lol : "no, i like to pay for free things"

Do you like mostly multiplayer games? (lol : "yeah, and aaron greentard told me that only xbox can do that"'s even better on ps3 with dedicated server, dumbo)

If you like racing sims, do you prefer Forza or Gran Turismo?

durran33050d ago

I am just surprised by how many disagrees you got just because you happen to enjoy the Xbox 360 and are obviously stating a fact... this website has the worst kind of PS3 fanboys who are so immature that they'll give you a stupid Disagree just by saying anything Microsoft related..

n4gno3050d ago

Same price then ps3 slim, if you want elite model to worth it, they have to cut the price to 150 $ to compete with ps3 value (and it will be not even close)

Hell No
You crazy?
Are you dumb?
Are you serious?
Are you even asking that?
Of course it isnt!

Natsu X FairyTail3050d ago

Man gtfo with that bullsh1t. All you do is spill crap up here. cmon son.

pippoppow3050d ago

What's bull is Ms selling the 360s at the same price as the PS3 with less tech inside. It is a year older, with no Blu-ray drive and since a redesign lowers cost shouldn't it be cheaper?

You may want one but it should be cheaper, so at the current price of $300 it isn't worth it.

evrfighter3050d ago

im buying one. maybe one for my upstairs room also.

Folezicle3050d ago

Where did you get that from:

Xbox 360 Slim 250 gig: $299.99

(Also an arcade is coming for cheaper (

PS3 Slim 250 Gig: $349.99

PS3 Slim 120 Gig: $299.99

PSfan093050d ago

and explain why?
you have a xbox 360 that is currently working. Why waste another 300 for. If you dont currently have a xbox then it will be worth it, if you do then dont waste your hard-earn cash. I for one will not because i have a xbox and feel mad that microsoft just made something that looks more next gen

T9X693050d ago

The same reason I had a working fat PS3 and bought a 250GB Slim PS3....its nice to have the latest hardware I guess.

SOAD3050d ago (Edited 3050d ago )

Yeah, PSfan. You're right, but why are you assuming that the question is aimed at people who already own a 360? If the question is aimed at people who have never owned a 360, then there's a lot of other questions one must ask before confirming that they want a 360.

Do your friends mostly have PS3s or 360s?

Do you like the PS3s exclusives more or the 360s exclusives more?

Do you mind the XBL fees?

Do you like mostly multiplayer games?

Do you like Halo and/or Gears of War?

If you like racing sims, do you prefer Forza or Gran Turismo?

If most or all of those questions are answered yes, then a 360S is a satisfactory purchase.

I don't like it when people buy something without doing the research and then complain about their buyer's remorse on the internet.

Everyone on this site who complains too much about something they bought should re-evaluate their purchasing habits.

deadreckoning6663050d ago (Edited 3050d ago )

Well, if you DON'T have a 360 and have been wanting to get a 360..I don't see how its NOT worth the money. But if the question is whether its worth the money in general as far as HD gaming consoles are concerned...then the answer is NO. U get far more value with the PS3.

fucadastates3050d ago

bigger user base than the wii? huh?? is the article right? is this another us=world argument??

Statix3050d ago

It doesn't even have a bigger user base in the US, let alone the rest of the world. Which is why I'm confused by the article's statement.

ActionBastard3050d ago (Edited 3050d ago )

Not for $300, nope. Especially considering all it CAN'T do without XBL.
