The X Box was Microsoft's first foray into a video game console. With the ability to play music and DVDs, the X Box is intended as more than just a video game system. X Box Live offers an online community where players can connect with others around the world, similar to the way that many PC games have networks that operate online.

There are some games that are designed exclusively for play on the X Box. Halo and Dead or Alive 3 were among the signature games for the X Box when it first launched. The X Box now has a catalog of more than 400 games, which means that there is something for everyone's tastes. From games rated E (for everyone) to M (for mature), you can find something which is also appropriate for anyone.

Another popular feature of some X Box games which players can take advantage of is the system link. This lets you connect multiple X Boxes so that more than 4 players can play simultaneously. LAN games are common, allowing up to 16 people to participate in a single game, like Halo or Halo 2. Team tournaments are popular on college campuses as a means of bringing residents together.

Saving X Box Games to Play Later

X Box games are designed to take full advantage of the internal hard drive. Unlike competing systems that use memory cards, an X Box can store files on the hard drive so that you can pick up right where you left off. You can also use the hard drive to save songs from CDs to play while you are playing games.
