Xbox 360 and Competition

June 1st, 2010

Xbox 360 is one of the three most popular consoles along with Playstation and Nintendo Wii. Those three giants are competing with each other which is definitely good for the consumers. That is because competition results in higher quality products. I think that each console has a lot to offer, but there are some things which Xbox 360 is missing. Here they are:

-Lack of free multiplayer support. Playstation offers free multiplayer support, but for this feature you will have to pay $50 if you have Xbox 360. Multiplayer games are becoming increasingly popular these days because they are simply a lot of fun.
-Lack of free Wi-Fi feature. You need to spend around $100 for a Wi-fi adaptor, while all of the other consoles have built-in Wi-Fi support.
-Problems playing videos. Other consoles simply support more video files. While you may not have a problem with playback of popular files types, you may encounter some problems with less known file formats.

As we can see, there is definitely some room for improvement, and hopefully there will be a solution to the above problems at some point. In these tough economic times each company wants to sell as many consoles as possible.
