KINECT WITH A WIN­NER

SundayXtra - - MOVIES -

Mi­crosoft’s Xbox 360 is im­proved for 2010, with a new slim ver­sion that ap­pears to have ad­dressed the “ red ring of death” de­sign flaw that made the sys­tem syn­ony­mous with pre­ma­ture fail­ure. The Kinect mo­tion cap­ture pe­riph­eral looks to be a win­ner too. Xbox 360 has been a favourite of hard­core gamers, thanks to a strong on­line net­work ( Xbox LIVE) and ex­clu­sive ti­tles like the Halo fran­chise. The least ex­pen­sive Xbox 360 skips a hard drive ( us­ing 4 GB of on­board stor­age in­stead) to cut the price to $ 199.99. The 2010 Hol­i­day bun­dle in­cludes two games and a 250 GB hard drive for $ 299.99, while Kinect bun­dles top out at $ 399.99.
