My First Look at the Xbox 360

20

I went to Best Buy today to pick up a copy of the remastered King Kong DVD and I got a chance to see the Xbox 360 in action. Obviously they were all sold out by the time I got there, but they had a demo one working.

Even after the recent Eagles collapse, Madden is the demo of choice for Philadelphia area Best Buys. Initially it didn’t seem to different from the previous versions I had seen. It was in widescreen and the graphics looked a little snazzier, but not much else. The player selected a play and then it happened. McNabb came up to the line and you could see his face clearly. Then his eyes shift left and right and, he smiled. Other cutscenes showed a polygon filled crowd, as opposed to the typically static images.

I look forward to seeing more impressive graphical displays from other games and future versions on Madden. The next generation is here though, and I am pretty impressed. The Xbox 360 appears ready for primetime and I am sure it will be a big hit. I imagine at some point I’ll get one too.
