The Xbox 360 is Microsoft's successor to the original Xbox and the predecessor to the Xbox One. It was launched on November 22, 2005 in North America as it features an improved CPU, better graphics, and advanced online gaming capabilities. It directly rivals Sony's PlayStation 3, and the Nintendo Wii. The Xbox 360 Elite is an updated version of the console, with a 120GB hard drive and HDMI output.
The Xbox 360 S is an upgraded version of the original design of Xbox 360 announced and released on June 14, 2010. It is smaller, quieter, has built-in WIFI, more USB ports, produces less heat and comes standard with either 4GB on-board flash memory or a 250GB hard drive. The Xbox 360 S removes the proprietary memory card slots from the original model, instead allowing the user to use any off-the-shelf USB flash drive 1GB or larger or, via a later update, any external hard drive up to 2TB for additional storage. The Xbox 360 S uses a different hard drive shell design than the original model; however, a transfer cable allows users to transfer data from an original Xbox 360 hard drive to an Xbox 360 S hard drive. The Xbox 360 E, announced and released on June 10, 2013, is the second and last major revision of the Xbox 360 hardware. The Xbox 360 E uses the same hard drives as the S model; however, the E model uses a different composite AV cable than its predecessors and lacks support for optical audio output and analog component video (YPbPr) output. Production of the Xbox 360 ended in April 2016; however, Microsoft will continue to support Xbox Live on the console for the foreseeable future.
