Its one-teraflops processing speed, fueled by three 3.2-gigahertz processors (think: three desktop computers), may make the 360 the most powerful computer you've ever used. Now all those flying chunks of decimated buildings and exploding monster heads can be uniquely generated based on your actions, delivering the most realistic console-gaming experience ever-and in a full 1,080 lines of high-def resolution.
The 360 is also the first Media Center extender that receives and plays back HDTV from Media Center PCs. And it comes with a free lifetime subscription to the Xbox Live online service. $300
