Then in 2005, Microsoft went one better with the introduction of the Xbox 360, sporting an IBM three-core 64-bit PowerPC CPU, with each core running at 3.2GHz. Wireless networking was added, and an ATI graphics card really boosted the rendering speed.
The Xbox 360 improvements made possible games with precise detail and spectacular graphics. The demand for new games for the Xbox 360 was quickly filled with first person shooter games, real time strategy games, and role playing games. If you're like most gamers, your money probably runs out before you can get all of the new games that you want, but there is another way to get these games. There are a number of websites that enable you to download Xbox 360 games for less cost, and in some cases, for free.
These Xbox 360 games download sites are easy enough to find. Simply conduct a Google or Bing search for "Free Xbox 360 Game Downloads." You should get a large number of hits. Some of the sites offer Xbox 360 game downloads that are completely free. These sites often have a very slow transfer rate, and also download spyware, adware, and other damaging malware to your computer. If you plan to use these sites, make sure you have excellent anti-virus protection.
The best option, in my opinion, is not free, but pretty close. For just a small one-time membership charge, some sites will offer you unlimited Xbox 360 game downloads of any games in their inventory. Shop around until you find the site with the lowest one-time signup charges, and start downloading. One other option is to use sites that offer downloads on a pay-per-download basis. You'll end up paying more per download, but usually find that these sites offer a faster transfer rate.
If you're still pondering the free Xbox 360 game download options, there is one other way to go using torrents. You can use a software application called µTorrent to download these torrents. If you're not familiar with the Torrent software, here's a brief summary: Most features available with other Bit Torrent clients are resident in µTorrent. This includes bandwidth prioritization, scheduling, RSS auto-downloading, and Mainline DHT. Also, it supports Protocol Encryption joint specification, and peer exchange.
Torrent was written to be most efficient. It doesn't take over scarce system resources. Actually, it uses less than 6 MB of memory. Your computer will hardly know it's there. This program lets you download Xbox 360 games, yet takes up only about 220 KB of memory.
The developers were insistent upon making the software user friendly, and they were successful. Unlike some software companies that release software too early, and then keep sending updates, these developers release their software only when it is fully tested and ready.
Using this software, you can search for and download games that others have shared through torrents. Naturally, the speed at which you can download is totally dependent upon how many people are sharing the torrent. Games aren't the only thing that you can download. Applications, MP3s, movies, and TV shows are also available.
