Im tired of seeing the same questions/misconceptions over and over. Maybe this will help. Feel free to add you own.
Why are there so few 360s?
M$ decided to do a worldwide launch. Instead of spacing out the EU and JAP launches 6 months from the US launch they are all within a week of each other. Also the chip yeilds are really low. This means that only a fraction of the chips they produce can be used.
Why does my 360 rattle?
There is a ball in there that senses whether the system is vertical or horizontal so it can display the controller quadrants correctly(DO NOT SWITCH THE CONSOLES POSITION WHILE THERE IS A DISC IN THE DRIVE)
Why only a 20 Gig Hard Drive?
YOU CANNOT PUT YOUR OWN CONTENT ON THE DRIVE There is no need for it to be so big. The only content stored on the drive is:
Xbox Live Marketplace downloads
Ripping and audio CD to the drive like on Xbox1(you can rip burned discs though)
Why do I only have 13 Gigs of free space?
There are hidden partitions the 360 uses for emulation, cacheing data, ect. Just like Xbox1 where you only got 5 gigs of the total 8 gigs.
Will my Xbox1 controllers work on the 360?
NO. not even with USB adapters. The 360 controllers do not work on Xbox1 either.
Is the PS3 better than 360?
There is no such thing as a PS3 yet. They cannot be compared.
