Wired has a list of the best and worst gadgets of 2005, and the Xbox 360 is listed among the best.
With supply falling painfully short of demand this holiday season, the hottest product launch of 2005 is bound to drag out well into 2006. Most retailers are still back-ordered on the new Xbox 360 gaming system until late February. Despite what appears to be a deliberate shortage created by Microsoft (and a dearth of interesting game titles), it’s hard to deny that the Xbox 360 is hands-down the most compelling gadget to hit store shelves this year. Astounding graphics performance and intelligent online integration make this console a must-have, provided you can actually get your hands on one.
