Xbox 360 nxe not updating
Microsoft joined the scene in November 2010, with its Kinect (previously announced under the working title "Project Natal" in June 2009).Unlike the other two systems (Play Station 3 and Wii), Kinect does not use controllers of any sort and makes the users the "controller." Having sold 8 million units in its first 60 days on the market, Kinect has claimed the Guinness World Record of being the "fastest selling consumer electronics device".
The Wii's low overall attach rate could be explained by reference to its rapidly increasing installed base, as financial analysts have pointed to the Xbox 360's high attach rates as indicative of an unhealthy lack of installed base growth, and warned that what actually benefits third-party developers is "quicker adoption of hardware and a rapidly growing installed base on which to sell progressively more game units," which tends to lower the attach rate of a product.While the Xbox 360 offers wired as well as wireless controllers as a standalone product, all Play Station 3 controllers can be used in wired and wireless configurations.Starting with handheld consoles, the seventh generation began on November 21, 2004 with the North American introduction of the Nintendo DS as a "third pillar", alongside Nintendo's existing Game Boy Advance and Game Cube consoles.In the history of video games, the seventh generation includes consoles released since late 2005 by Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony Computer Entertainment.

The Nintendo DS likewise had connectivity to the internet through the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and Nintendo DS Browser, as well as wireless connectivity to other DS systems and Wii consoles.

Like its predecessor, the Xbox 360 received a muted reception in Japan, This early launch did come with some trouble, as technical problems appeared in a portion of Xbox 360 units sold.
The most well-known problem is the "red ring of death" and Error E74, which received (and still receives) a great deal of attention due to some users having to replace their consoles multiple times.
