Choosing a game console can be a very daunting task. If you don't have an idea, and is being stuck between different game consoles, this article will help you decide. My previous article discussed the pros and cons of Nintendo Wii, and now, I will be showing you the strengths and weaknesses of Microsoft Xbox 360. This will help you determine whether Xbox is the right console for you or not.


Of course, every Xbox user knows that the biggest strength of Microsoft is the Halo saga. I wonder if Microsoft will still continue to participate in the gaming war, if Halo had not been a huge hit for most gamers. This is also the reason why Microsoft boosted up in ranks when it comes to consoles.

Another known strength of Xbox is their resources. Being under Microsoft, which the biggest company in the world today, we can expect that they have billions to spend just to make their product one of the best.

Finally, they have an impressive 3rd party support that will develop games for them. We know that games are what keep the console alive, and so much connection, Xbox has tons of titles for any types of players.


Aside from Halo, Xbox doesn't have phenomenal games. It seems that they need to work more on software developments instead of promoting or improving their gaming product.

These are the weaknesses and strengths of Xbox. I hope that this information is enough to help you decide which is the right one to purchase. Always keep in mind that the real strengths of gaming console lies in the eyes of the player, so choose wisely when looking for one.

Watch out for my final article about the weaknesses and strengths of game consoles. I will be discussing another powerhouse called Playstation.
