Goodbye, old friend


Recommended Posts

dipsylalapo

So last night I made the difficult decision to finally say goodbye to my Xbox 360. I was going through the few games that I still wanted to play on there and realised that most of these are now BC so I no longer need to use my 360 to play them. I'll be transferring over save games to the cloud for the few games that I still like to dabble in but after that it'll be packed backed into the box and laid to rest with my PS3 Slim, PS2, Xbox and Gamecube. 

 

I bought the first 360 on launch day and then upgraded to the Elite when that was released, and it's literally been sat under my TV for as long as I can remember. It's been with me through 5 towns/cities and 7 house moves. 

 

So long old friend :)

Mine still sets in a spare room under a tv, not hooked up or connected. Hasn't been turned on in years now. I don't have the heart to put her in a box into the roof just yet, Like you I had her from first moving out and a lot of moving around until I finally purchased my own place as I got older. 

 

She's been more loyal and stood by my side more than several girlfriends with lifes ups and down's over a massive period. Hopefully one day she can rest easy in a nice glass display cabinet in the future theatre room.

 

BC is a glorious thing. And the best thing that's been done this generation to keep the games alive going forward.

aww man, you guys are making me sad, I had to get rid of my 360 in order to get my XB1 :(

 

I'd love to say it was the day one console I bought but I had 3 RRoD's in the end so it was my 4th 360 by the end.

 

I'll probably trade in my XB1 to get an XB1X when the time comes too.

Mine was a 2nd gen one. Lasted well until I upgraded to an Xbone.

 

By the end of it, it'd only play games at a 45 degree angle, and you had to prise the tray open to get the disc out, but damnit it still played games!

Mine's been in a box since before the Xbox One was released... I just hated the massive lump of a power supply unit. I think the last time I played on it was when Red Dead Redemption came out.

PGR! I want them to bring that game back. I feel like Forza Horizon was supposed to fill that void but PGR was just something else!

I had the original 360, gave that to my sister when I upgraded to the 360 S, which I have sitting on a shelf not connected.  I don't know if I'll ever give it away or if it'll just sit there and end up in a box in a closet next to my old NES and Genesis, dunno what happened to the PSX and PS2, those are somewhere as well. :p

I also still have 2 original black xboxes (the black bricks) chipped and modded for XBMC back in the day :) still work fine at 1080i via the HQ cable kit and dvd remote. Not used these days but couldnt bring myself to bin them.

I keep my hooked up for now until more games are playable on the X1.  I recently started using it to play DA:2.   I had the 360 that was plagued with the RROD but mine lasted 6yrs before I got that issue.  Then I got the 360 slim.  Still have the box for it as well.

I can't bring myself to do the same. Both my 360 and PS3 have pride of place in my setup, while my X1 and PS4 are disconnected. However, I will be very quick to box up the X1 and PS4 when the time comes; I've really disliked this "generation" more than any other before it.

 

Meanwhile, I can't get enough of the 360 / PS3 and their respective libraries :wub:

I agree with you, my Xbox 360's also been getting more use than the Xbox One, this generation seems to have pretty much abandoned local multiplayer for some reason. I know i'm in the minority but i'd sooner get some mates together and play in the same room.

 

In comparison the Xbox 360 has loads of games which allow 4 people to play on one console, or system link 2 per console, many are not backwards compatible sadly, that's why my 360 will be hooked up for a long time to come. To be honest I still had my Xbox Classic hooked up until i got a Wii U as it was great for emulation.

 

I do think the Wii U is such an underrated console this gen, you have some great exclusives including:  Mario Kart, Fast Racing Neo, Smash Bros, New Super Mario Bros and Bayonetta 2, all supporting 4 player local play with the exception of Bayonetta 2.

 

Then with hacks the Wii U can emulate every Nintendo console released to date with the exception of the 3DS, along with many other retro consoles too.

I've started to become sad that I don't have my 360 anymore because of Crackdown.  I mean, it's not like I need to play through it for the 5,000th time ;) but I WOULD!

 

I had hoped it would eventually hit BC.  Hell, I still do.  But there's been no indication of it actually happening.

I have 3 consoles which are the following:

  • Xbox 360
  • Xbox 360 Elite
  • Xbox One

These are still working to this day.  

 

I am considering to get Xbox One X. Unless I get PS4 or PS5.  If I get new one this year, I will give one of the consoles to someone else so he/she could use it.

I retired my 360 when I moved. It's now sitting in my basement. The only reason I used the 360 was for Kinect, but I haven't used it recently.

Sorry meant an announcing of backwards compat with free games with gold, should of clarified. Maybe with Crackdown 2 the same month? Or over 2 months? Would be good way to drum up attention either way. Don't see any other reason it hasn't been given backwards compat yet.

I'm not sure if it's coming at all.  It had a significant amount of licensed music that may need to be relicensed for it.

 

I'd hope they'd be able to take care of it but I'm prepared to be disappointed, considering how long we've been waiting already.

They managed to get it done with Forza Horizon so fingers crossed or seriously just replace the tracklist. I think we'll see music licencing in games in the future change when contracts are exchanged to negate this very effect. We can hope so anyway.

I said goodbye to the 360 the day the One was released.
It was easily the most love/hate relationship I ever had with a gaming console. Any electronic period actually.

In total I had 4 RROD's. That is just straight up ridiculous.

However I never gave up on it for one reason and one reason only. It was the best console at the time.

Also if the discussion is online gaming, I immediately think of the 360. That is primarily thanks to the online Neowin matches we used to have.

So definitely more love than hate, but damn the RROD was a pain in the arse.

welcome back

i knew someone closely connected to xbox.   I wanted Elite but they actually failed the most.  Anyhow, lots and lots of quality controls at MS in every fabric over the world.  
Even though it was not the first console. for MS.   I really hope the quality controls standards will continue to rise, but the next hiccup i personally experience was buying surface book close to the launch date.  i returned it as unusable.  

If i got it about 3-4 months later, i would have kept it.  But not only i returned it, i grew heavy skepticism towards surface brand from now on. never will buy at release date.

 

If only they had a working product at launch.. it would help their popularity huge. 

 

when the product of the quality expected at launch (for the price they sell) is only in the best workable shape months later, way after the peak of interest is missed completely, it is really bad customer service.

I've got some warm memories as well :) I bought my 360 (slim model) from my first salary and never had any problems with it. This is definitely one of my favorite consoles so far. My favorite series is: GoW and Forza and we are still playing this games sometimes with my friends in a split-screen.

      The console wars grand finale: Xbox 360 versus Xbox One versus Nintendo 3DS
      by João Carrasqueira



      Welcome to the final round of the console wars. For the past month, we've asked you to choose your favorite consoles in a series of polls, and your votes have brought us to the grand finale. Of course, that means it's up to you again to choose the true winner.

      First, let's recap what happened in round two. The first matchup saw the Xbox 360 pulling an undisputed victory with nearly 50% of the votes. In second place, the PlayStation 2 won over just 24% of the voters, giving the Xbox 360 a crushing win. An interesting result, to be sure, considering the PlayStation 2 is the best-selling console of all time.

      The second match pitted the original PlayStation, the Nintendo 64, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch against each other, and once again, Microsoft pulled a convincing. The battle was a bit more balanced here, but the Xbox One still got over 34% of the votes, with the Nintendo Switch slightly edging out the PlayStation for second place with roughly 27% of you choosing it.

      Finally, the third match was focused on handhelds, and all of them were made by Nintendo, so there was only one possible winner. More specifically, victory went to the Nintendo 3DS, with roughly 34% of our readers voting for it. In second place, the Game Boy Advance had about 26% of the votes, and it's certainly interesting that sales numbers don't correlate to the poll winners at all in any of these matchups.

      With that being said, we now have the three finalists - the Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Nintendo 3DS. You can vote for them right now, but since we're down to the final three, we'll also introduce you to each of the contestants below the poll.

      Poll
      What is the best console of all time?
      Xbox 360 45.3% Xbox One 28.4% Nintendo 3DS 26.4% Results (201 Votes) Meet the contestants
      Xbox 360

      The Xbox 360 was Microsoft's second foray into the world of game consoles, following a relatively lukewarm reception to the original Xbox. Microsoft kickstarted the seventh-generation of consoles, having announced the Xbox 360 in May of 2005, and releasing it in North America, Europe, and Japan later that year. As such, it was the first console to feature HD graphics and it also ushered in the era of online gaming with Xbox Live, though the service was already available to some extent on the original Xbox.

      Original Xbox 360 "Premium", Xbox 360 S, and Xbox 360 E The Xbox 360 also introduced a new controller that worked wirelessly and had a significantly improved design that not only negated the criticism towards the original, but actually became one of the most praised controllers for its comfort. The console itself got redesigned a number of times throughout its life, adding more storage, connectivity options, and addressing some reliability issues like the infamous "Red Ring of Death". The most recognizable revision was the Xbox 360 S, launched in 2010, but it also got redesigned to look more like the Xbox One with the Xbox 360 E model in 2012.

      By this point, Microsoft had started to gain recognition for its online service, and it had a hugely popular franchise in the form of Halo, with other franchises like Forza Motorsport and Fable having also started to grow. Between that and other well-known exclusive games like Gears of War, the Xbox 360 had a strong library early on. Combine that with stronger third-party support, an earlier launch than the competition, and a more attractive price than the PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360 led in terms of sales for a long time, barring the casual-focused Wii.

      Kinect for Xbox 360 However, towards the end of the Xbox 360's life, the company shifted its focus towards the Kinect - a motion-sensing camera - trying to lure the casual audience away from Nintendo. Meanwhile, Sony had introduced cheaper versions of the PlayStation 3 and kept investing in games like The Last of Us and the Uncharted series later on. As such, the Xbox 360 ended in third place in its generation, having sold over 84 million units. Still, it's Microsoft's best-selling console officially.

      Xbox One

      The Xbox One was first revealed in May of 2013, and its initial reception was completely opposite from the Xbox 360's early days. Microsoft initially wanted to require a constant internet connection, make reselling games impossible, require the use of Kinect, and the first presentation of the console focused much more on media and television than gaming. Microsoft did try to focus more on games at E3, but then it had to contend with Sony. The PlayStation 4 was revealed to be cheaper than the Xbox One, confirmed support for used games, and focused even more on the gaming crowd, which meant Microsoft was off to a very slow start. The first model of the Xbox One was also mocked for being bulky and looking somewhat bland.

      But Microsoft put a ton of effort into turning things around as the generation went on. The Kinect was eventually removed from the Xbox One package (and ended up being killed off entirely for gaming purposes), and Microsoft introduced two redesigns that made the Xbox One much more appealing. The Xbox One S, announced in 2016, made the console much smaller and gave it an all-new visual identity, along with adding support for HDR and 4K. This also brought an improved Xbox Wireless Controller, now with Bluetooth support, which allowed it to work on PCs and mobile devices easily. Then, in 2017, Xbox One X became the world's most powerful console, with support for native 4K rendering, all while being even smaller than the One S.

      Microsoft also started focusing on games again, and capitalized on its incredibly popular Halo franchise by releasing The Master Chief Collection in 2014, containing almost every game in the series' history so far, with the first two being remade to look the part on Xbox One. Microsoft also finally put its acquisition of Rare to good use with the release of Rare Replay, a collection of almost every Rare-developed game from the 30 years prior, including cult classics like Conker's Bad Fur Day and Banjo-Kazooie. And of course, that's to say nothing of big new games that came out in the next few years from series like Halo, Gears of War, Forza (including the open-world Forza Horizon sub-series), and new franchises entirely like Sea of Thieves and Ori. On top of that, backward compatibility, which was initially missing, would be added later on for both Xbox 360 and some original Xbox games.

      Microsoft stopped reporting sales of its Xbox consoles in October 2015, but estimates point to it having sold 51 million units as of the end of the second quarter of 2020. Far from a failure, the Xbox One ended up in a distant second place from the PlayStation 4, and has also been surpassed by the Nintendo Switch, but it stands as a testament to the mistakes Microsoft made and the lessons it learned in this era.

      Nintendo 3DS

      We already talked about the entire history of the Nintendo 3DS just a few months ago, in honor of the console being discontinued in 2020. You can always read more there, but here's a quick summary. The Nintendo 3DS was first announced via a simple press release in March 2010 and then shown off at E3 that year, but it wouldn't release until March 2011.

      Its headlining feature was support for glasses-free 3D, which required the user to look at the screen from a very specific angle and distance. It also featured higher-resolution displays, better graphics, and new control methods like a Circle Pad and motion sensors, compared to its predecessor. However, the console initially failed to gain traction thanks to its high price point and lack of blockbuster titles in the first few months.

      Nintendo was determined to turn things around, though, and reduced the price from $250 to $170 just a few months later, and with big original games like Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 releasing that holiday season, the 3DS began to exhibit a decent amount of success. It eventually got original games from series like The Legend of Zelda and Pokémon, revived franchises like Luigi's Mansion and Kid Icarus, and expanded the popularity of Animal Crossing, which no doubt contributed to the worldwide phenomenon that was Animal Crossing: New Horizons on the Nintendo Switch many years later. Even some third-party exclusives, like the Monster Hunter series and Resident Evil: Revelations (which was only exclusive for about a year), were released for the system.

      The Nintendo 3DS received a handful of revisions, including the 3DS XL with bigger screens, and the 2DS, which removed 3D functionality and was more affordable. All models got revised with the "New" branding later on (2015 for the New 3DS and New 3DS XL; 2017 for the New 2DS XL), bringing even more control options, improved processing power, and better 3D support in the 3D-enabled models.

      With 75.94 million units sold, it was far from Nintendo's biggest success in the handheld market, but it was far ahead of its competitor - the PlayStation Vita.

      And those are the finalists this time around. Who will come out on top in the grand finale of the console wars? It's up to you. Cast your votes and we'll reveal the grand winner in a few weeks.

      Console wars round two is here - Time to choose the finalists
      by João Carrasqueira

      Welcome back to Neowin's console wars. Two weeks ago, we started a tournament with every major console from each generation, and thanks to your votes, it's now time for round two. As previously sated, the two most voted consoles from each poll have moved on to the second round, which will consist of three matches, each pitting four consoles against each other.

      The first matchup in the previous round pitted the second and seventh generations of consoles against each other and, unsurprisingly, the second-generation hardware didn't hold a candle to its newer counterparts. The Xbox 360 came out ahead with roughly 45% of the votes, a smashing result. In second place, the PlayStation 3 obtained just over 20% of the votes. Neither of the consoles was the best-selling platform of the generation, but the PlayStation 3 came out ahead between the two, and the Xbox 360's crushing win can likely be attributed to the Microsoft-focused nature of Neowin. We'll see more of that in the rest of the polls.

      As for the second matchup, it featured third- and sixth-generation consoles, and once again, the newer hardware came out on top. The PlayStation 2 pulled off a clean victory with just over 30% of the votes, which isn't at all surprising considering it's the best-selling console of all time, having sold more than 155 million units. Second place was given to the original Xbox with 23.6% of the votes, despite it only selling 24 million units back in the day.

      That means the first poll in this round is all about Sony and Microsoft:

      Poll
      Playstation 2 vs Xbox vs PlayStation 3 vs Xbox 360
      PlayStation 2 Xbox PlayStation 3 Xbox 360 Submit Vote Next up, the third match in round one features fourth- and fifth-generation consoles, and it's one of the closest races so far. The original PlayStation pulled ahead with 26% of the votes, with the Nintendo 64 trailing it only slightly with 25.6%. The result is surprising considering the PlayStation sold over 100 million units, while the Nintendo 64 sold just under 33 million. Left behind was the iconic SNES, which only amassed 21.9% of the votes.

      The fourth poll pitted the eighth generation of home consoles against the fifth generation of handhelds, and it would seem there's not much love for the classics here. Microsoft once again took the top spot with the Xbox One, garnering 35.8% of the votes, and the Nintendo Switch slightly edged out the PlayStation 4 for second place, receiving 26.7% of your choices. Microsoft stopped reporting console sales numbers a few years ago, but estimates point to it having sold around 50 million units as of December 31, 2019, which was about half of what its direct rival, the PlayStation 4, had sold at the time. As of the latest report, the Switch has sold just under 80 million units, but it's also been on the market for much less time.

      And so, the second match in round two is:

      Poll
      PlayStation vs Nintendo 64 vs Xbox One vs Nintendo Switch
      PlayStation Nintendo 64 Xbox One Nintendo Switch Submit VoteResults (12 Votes) From here on out, we're focusing on handhelds, and Nintendo has absolutely dominated the market in this area. Pitting the fourth and eighth generations of handheld consoles together, it was Nintendo's original Game Boy that came out on top, leading with 37% of the popular vote. In a close second, the Nintendo 3DS obtained 35.4% of our readers' choices. Sales-wise, both consoles were at the top of the chain for their time - the Game Boy family sold over 118 million units, and the Nintendo 3DS sold just under 76 million, leaving little room for competition.

      The picture isn't all too different in the final match-up of round one, with the Nintendo DS coming out ahead with 37.7% of the votes. The dual-screen handheld sold over 154 million units and is the best-selling portable console ever, so that's not surprising. In second place, the Game Boy Advance conquered 31.2% of our readers' preference. This was one of the least competitive generations in handheld consoles, and the GBA was practically the only viable platform at the time. Even though it was superseded by the DS just three years later, it managed to sell over 81 million units.

      And with that, the final match in round two has a guaranteed winner - Nintendo. Here are your options:

      Poll
      Game Boy vs Game Boy Advance vs Nintendo DS vs Nintendo 3DS
      Game Boy Game Boy Advance Nintendo DS Nintendo 3DS Submit Vote And those are the matchups for round two! We've gotten rid of a lot of contestants that barely anyone cared for, so the real competition starts now. Every console in these polls played a major role in gaming, so it's up to you to decide which ones were the biggest. The winners of these polls will participate in a three-way final round.

      Don't agree with the results? Let us know in the comments and share the tournament with your friends so we get the most realistic picture possible. And stay tuned for the final round at the end of February!
