Q: What is the difference between the original Xbox and the 360?
As the name of the new console implies, almost everything has changed. To begin with the Xbox 360 looks very different. The solid black of the original has gone in favour of a sleeker, shiny look that will mean it does not look out of place next to your DVD player. Microsoft wants it to become part of your home entertainment hub.
Under the hood even bigger changes have been made. The raw processing power of the Xbox 360 is many times greater than the original console. Estimates of how much more powerful it is vary between two and 10 times as powerful. The power boost is due to the Xbox 360 having three processing cores to the original's one.
Graphically, it is a leap forward as the Xbox 360 can draw up to 500 million polygons per second to depict game scenes. By contrast the original Xbox's upper limit was 125 million.
Those lucky enough to own a HD compatible TV and surround sound system will be able to get the most out of the Xbox 360 as all games are ready to be played in these formats.
The Xbox 360 also has a slot for a detachable 20GB hard drive, far larger than the 8GB in the original console.
