The Xbox 360 is the second console in the Microsoft video game console series, introduced in 2005. Although it was not the first ever to feature online video gaming, the Xbox 360’s online service known as Xbox Live was the largest and most popular. It allowed users to play and download games online and play against opponents. It has since expanded to include other services including streaming video and music. The Xbox 360 was wildly popular at launch, with some fans waiting in line for hours to buy them. It has since been replaced by the Xbox One, but Microsoft plans to support the Xbox 360 through 2016.
