Innocently powering the console on by pressing the X button on the wireless controller is akin to firing up a web browser on a computer. And, like the web, the 360 is deep, man, very deep. </p> <p>The fact that it’s still ostensibly a games console and doesn’t have one killer stand-out game is, in our opinion, by the by. The Halo/GTA title will come and, in the meantime, the 360’s media tricks are more than enough to keep us occupied.</p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £0.00 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">10 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-verdict"> <div class="field-label">Verdict:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The Xbox 360 deserves a medal for its stunning looks and superb content, but the hardware isn't amazing </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /review/microsoft-xbox-360-premium </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/microsoft/microsoft-xbox-360-premium/review" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/microsoft/microsoft-xbox-360-premium/review#comments Games consoles Microsoft Xbox 360 (Premium) Fri, 15 Sep 2006 05:00:00 +0000 Simon Osborne-Walker 1803 at http://www.stuff.tv hands on with xbox 360 http://www.stuff.tv/microsoft/hands-xbox-360/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" alt="" src="http://cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/dev.stuff_5.tv?1364475803" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="356" height="236" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/213300afcmn.jpg?1364475803" /> </div> </div> </div> <p><strong></strong></p> <p> The Bad:</p> </p> <p> • There’s not one title that really makes the most of the 360’s <strong>awesome specs</strong> in order to push gaming to the next level. </p> <p> • We’ll take new versions of Wolfenstein and Quake, but they were the cream of a crop of <strong>unimaginative sequels</strong> that flogged familiar franchises like FIFA, Tiger Woods, Ridge Racer, MotoGP and Final Fantasy within an inch of their life. </p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/computers-and-consoles/hands/hands-xbox-360 </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/microsoft/hands-xbox-360/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/microsoft/hands-xbox-360/news#comments Microsoft Xbox 360 (Premium) Wed, 06 Oct 2004 05:00:00 +0000 admin 589 at http://www.stuff.tv Xbox 360 comes of age – part two http://www.stuff.tv/microsoft/xbox-360-comes-age-%E2%80%93-part-two/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> E3 Microsoft is making the most of its head-start in the superconsole wars, with the arrival of essential software such as the brilliant Gears of War </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" alt="" src="http://cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/dev.stuff_11.tv?1364477491" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="356" height="236" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/2840004e8mn.jpg?1364477491" /> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuffmag.co.uk/hotstuffarticle.asp?de_id=1686">Read part one of this article</a></p> <p>Another tasty horror game is <em>Dead Rising</em>, a kind of <em>Grand Theft Auto</em> with zombies that we first played last year.
