The XBox 360 System

The new XBox 360 console brings Microsoft technology to the gaming industry like never before. This new toy sports new Internet connections to social communities and puts the gamer in ultimate control with goo-gobs of fun accessories.

This article describes some of those accessories and the games available that (almost) everyone can enjoy.

XBox 360 Accessories. For such a powerful system, it should be no surprise that this system takes full advantage of accessorizing. We can start by saving games on the 512MB memory unit or with the 64MB memory unit. To keep the power going, we can look at the Quick Charge Kit or the smaller Play & Charge Kit. On the go, you can carry and use the Rechargeable Batter Pack while re-powering you controller with the charge Station.

Increase connectivity with the Wireless Network Adapter and keep your system "kewl" with the Intercooler. But that's enough about maintenance. Let's look at the fun.

Get a Wired controller or Wireless Controller to play your games. Unless you want feel like getting behind the wheel. In that case, you can try on the Wireless Racing Wheel for size.

Want a little multimedia action? Get a HD-DVD player (don't forget the remote) - a Live Vision Camera or a Wireless Headset. Then jam your way onto the Guitar Hero II.

Of course if you want to get down with your PC, check out Xbox's Wireless Gaming Receiver and user your XBox 360 controller on the computer!
