The Xbox 360 is a game console produced by Microsoft and developed by a partnership of IBM, ATI, Samsung and SiS.
With the Xbox Live service, players can play against each other online and download arcade games, trailers, TV shows, music videos and rented movies. The Xbox 360 is the successor to the Xbox and competes with Sony's PlayStation 3 and Nintendo's Wii, both seventh-generation consoles.
It is the first console to be part of the three main regions of the world (United States, Europe and Japan) launched and supporting wireless controllers from the start.
The Xbox 360 officially unveiled on MTV on May 12, 2005, with a detailed introduction and game information at E3. The device sold out immediately during its introduction (except in Japan) and by December 2011, 57 million units had already been sold worldwide.
The name 360 refers to the number of degrees in a circle, which represents the infinity of the Xbox. The power button is purposely made large, as it is also a circle. The design has been made smaller than with the first Xbox. This will bring the power supply outside of the console. The standard console has a white color with green hues. The covers are interchangeable, with the idea of giving everyone a unique Xbox 360.
