Tips for Your Xbox

By: Andres Garcia

A lot of gaming fans within the industry automatically assume that once the next-generation video game consoles are released, their previous generation consoles become automatically obsolete.? But that simply isn't the case.? You see, it used to be that the gap between each generation of consoles, in terms of graphics, were so big, that once the new systems were released, no one would want to touch the systems that they already had in their house or where ever it may have been.

It's different now though.? The gap between each new console release in terms of graphics has decreased a lot.? So, what this essentially means, is that to the naked eye, there really isn't much of a difference for the consumers, in terms of the graphics.? Because of this, the value you of your previous generation console skyrockets.? So if you do have an Xbox don't get rid of it.? Whether you know it or not, there is still a lot of life left in that system of yours.

First things first, one of the ways to extend the value of your Xbox, is to actually have it modded.? There are a lot of mods that can be done, and that is to the discretion of each individual, but one of the mods that I, myself use, is to have games of the past be played on my console. The selection of games that can be played on your console could be many.? For example, I have the ability to play games from the Nintendo entertainment system, Sega Genesis, Super Nintendo, Atari, and the list goes on.

Another great way to utilize your Xbox is to actually go to the used game sections of your local videogame retailers.? This is an incredible way to find games that you've always wanted to play but never got the chance to.? Or, play the games that you never even knew existed but once you do play it you find yourself enjoying it a lot.? On top of this, typically games at the used section can be found for very very cheap prices.? Let me give you an example: at my local Blockbuster, I purchased three Xbox games for only $15.? Yes, only $15!

If you look at today's videogame consoles, you would be hard-pressed to find brand-new games for less than $50.? In some cases, software titles for the current generation consoles which include; Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, could go upwards of $50 to $100 dollars, or more in some cases.? So, those are just two of the ways you can add extra value to your Xbox.? So, if your console is in your closet collecting dust, do yourself a favor and dust it off.? The games have just begun.
