Xbox 360 has been unveiled. The console can – surprise, surprise – play videogames, DVDs, CDs and connect to the internet, is due to arrive in US shops for Christmas but no European launch date has been confirmed. Microsoft claims it will raise the bar in gaming.

The Guardian suggests that with PlayStation 3 thought to be hitting the high street next year, and Nintendo unlikely to move quickly with its Revolution console, Microsoft will hope to steal a march on its rivals. Indications are that Xbox 360 will cost less than the original Xbox, which, at first, cost £299.
