    How we score

    The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

    Engadget Summary

    Microsoft's 2010 update to the Xbox 360 added a number of key features, including built-in WiFi, less noise, and circuitry designed to prevent the overheating issues that plagued earlier models. The Xbox 360 edges out Sony's PlayStation 3 for our top recommendation thanks in part to its larger game library, the best video apps on any console, the Kinect, and Xbox Live, which still provides a far better online multiplayer experience than the PlayStation Network (even if it isn't free).
