If you took a poll of 20 teenage guys I bet 19 of them would say that they enjoy playing Xbox. However, Xbox isn’t just for teen guys, read on…
Xbox One is Microsoft’s newest Xbox console, but lots of people still enjoy playing the Xbox 360 , including my Aunt! She is 64 years old and you should see her playing Minecraft on her 360, she is just as good as any teenage kid out there! Most ladies her age would rather be reading, doing puzzles, or knitting, but Aunty loves Xbox. She originally bought the Xbox 360 to have at her house when her grand kids came over to visit, but little by little she got hooked on the great graphics and fun story lines of some of the different games.
Of course, there are plenty of games out for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 that don’t appeal to her such as the Grand Theft Auto series. However, there are plenty of games available for people of all ages from Elementary school age, such as Angry Birds: Star Wars to fun family games like Kinect Sports Rivals that everyone can enjoy. One favorite series at my house is all of the Lego themed games such as The Lego Movie Video game (yes, that’s really what it’s called!), Lego The Hobbit, and my Son’s personal favorite – LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes.
The original Xbox (not the 360, the one before that) was the first video game console offered by an American company after the Atari Jaguar stopped sales in 1996. The original Xbox was released on November 15, 2001 in the United States, and has sold over 24 million units. Microsoft’s second console, the Xbox 360, was released in 2005 and has sold over 77.2 million consoles worldwide. The successor to the Xbox 360 and Microsoft’s most recent console, the Xbox One, was revealed on May 21, 2013. The Xbox One has a large emphasis on internet-based features; including the ability to record and stream game play, and the ability to integrate with a set-top box to watch cable or satellite TV through the console.
One of the most interesting and innovative features of the Xbox 360 and Xbox One is the Kinect controller. The Kinect is a motion-sensing controller, similar to the Wii Plus Remote, except the Kinect can also be controlled by by voice, which is definitely a step up in my opinion.
Now that I have told you a little bit about my family and how we enjoy the Xbox 360 and Xbox One, why don’t you head on over to DealDash and see what Xbox auctions are currently running? Not a day goes by that I don’t see at least one Xbox product, be it a game or accessory. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
