Without a doubt, the video game industry was one of the few sectors that grew strongly in the midst of the worst days of the pandemic in the world. In fact, according to the “ABC del Gaming” study carried out by the WILD FI agency, in just the first year of the pandemic, gamers increased by 260 million. This in turn translates into a 62% growth in video game consumption globally between January and March 2020.
And as it has been revealed, this trend is here to stay and continues to grow, especially in Chile. In fact, different brands of the gamer industry are offering facilities, discounts and promotions rarely seen, understanding the economic difficulties that the country is going through, linked to the high cost of living.

Understanding that these types of hobbies can imply important expenses to acquire the latest titles, the best accessories or even to renew the consoles, it is always important to establish the needs that we want to fill and quote the correct prices. In turn, be aware of events such as Cyber Monday Chile 2022can be helpful when it comes to getting significant discounts on this matter.
But an important part of making a smart purchase also has to do with understanding the differences between the consoles, their evolution and their technical capabilities. For example, the Microsoft console has undergone a significant evolution since its inception.
The Xbox 360 is a video game console that was released on November 22, 2005. It is the successor to the original Xbox and the third console in Microsoft’s Xbox series. The Xbox 360 competes with Sony’s Playstation 3 and Nintendo’s Wii as part of the seventh generation of video game consoles.
The name “Xbox” was derived from a shorthand term developed by Microsoft marketing executives during early production.
It was originally called “DirectX Box; (or DirectX Box 360”), but the name Xbox was ultimately chosen because of its association with “direct input”, referring to an input device for a computer game console, and “eXtreme Digital”, referring to a series of extreme sports video game that started on the original Xbox.
The Xbox One is a video game console developed by Microsoft and released on November 22, 2013. It is the successor to the Xbox 360 and the third console in the Xbox family. The Xbox One offers a number of improvements over its predecessor.
It features an 8-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 500GB hard drive, a Blu-ray player, HDMI in/out, and Wi-Fi Direct for connectivity.
The controller includes new features to improve usability, such as impulse triggers that provide haptic feedback for various events in games, and an improved D-pad that allows for more precise directional input.
The console also offers Kinect integration with its motion sensing peripheral that allows users to control games without using consoles, as well as perform other functions such as Skype calls or watch TV shows and movies. In January 2014, Microsoft confirmed that it had sold more than one million Xbox One consoles during its first 24 hours of availability.
