Why Microsoft's Xbox 360 dominates the living room war

Kinect is regularly getting slammed by video game critics but it still sells very well and it's not the hardware that lets it down unfortunately.

That's the lame game and the poor use of the hardware many games use it. Kinect has a lot of success with the launch of its sesame street games, see Cookie answer children's interactions are an amusing sight!

If you do not know much about Kinect there is a nasty bit of kit, it's been out for a couple of years now but it makes the living room experience even more ... lazy.

You don't even have to pick up the remote control to select a movie longer, Kinect bundles together a camera, microphone and motion sensors, so with the power of voice, you can control your home entertainment, almost like Bourne.

Microsoft is constantly pushing new content to the Xbox console has evolved into more than just a game console, now has a dedicated music shop, a place to watch movies and TV, and a social base. Continuous feeding of software and hardware updates has seen a change in the way the console is used. In the spring, Xbox live subscribers, for the first time ever in the United States, spent more time watching videos and listening to music than to play multiplayer games. Xbox is turning into an alternative to cable services like sky, on-demand movies and TV from the services such as LoveFilm and Netflix replaces the need for a cable.Microsoft's Xbox live has over 40 million members in 35 countries, they have sold 67 million units, generating $ 56 billion of retail and still continues to sell consoles at a steady rate. The latest development is based around contract subscription trials that pop up in the States right now, that is, instead of paying $ 199 for an Xbox bundle, you pay $ 99 and agree that subscribe to Xbox live gold membership for 2 years.

As Microsoft likes to use the Xbox as the experimental controller and the latest development is that the smart glass. Smartglass is a tablet display that can interact and deliver a second monitor to your Xbox gaming and has lots of other features. It is a direct competitor to the Nintendo Wii U Tablet PC controller which will be released later this year.Plenty of Xbox success but has been down to some of its illustrious and exclusive games, big is, of course, the original Halo and mass effect. So there are plenty of reasons why the Xbox console has been located in most large homes with new Xbox One rumors, will maybe they continue to reside in your living room!
