The Xbox 360 is the follow-up to the Xbox, and is currently the third newest console on the market.

Eighteen launch titles were available for customers in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico on November 22, 2005. The European countries had seventeen titles available for the launch date of December 2, 2005. Japanese customers, however, only had six titles to choose from by the time the Xbox 360 was released on December 10, 2005. This discrepancy is partially accounted for by the time needed to localize the games.

Kinect[edit]

Kinect (originally code named Project Natal) is a "controller-free gaming and entertainment experience". Based around a webcam-style add-on peripheral for the Xbox 360 console, it enables users to control and interact with the Xbox 360 without the need to touch a game controller, through a natural user interface using gestures, spoken commands, or presented objects and images. The project is aimed at broadening the Xbox 360's audience beyond its typical gamer base. Kinect competes with the Wii Remote with Wii MotionPlus and PlayStation Move & PlayStation Eye motion control systems for the Wii and PlayStation 3, respectively.

Kinect was originally only supported by the Xbox 360; in 2011 it was also made compatible with Windows 7 and the upcoming Windows 8. Microsoft will be releasing an updated Kinect peripheral specifically designed for computer use along with a firmware update to make the hardware more suited to up-close use.
