If you’re looking for ways to make money online, you’ve probably considered trying your luck with the stock market, doing chores for wealthy individuals, or becoming a social media influencer. While these are viable options, there’s another way that you may not have considered—using your Xbox 360 to make cash!
Traditionally, the Xbox platform has been used for gameplay, but it has so much more potential to be a source of income. The gaming console is widely available, and most game consoles have been on the market for many years now. Its primary function has not changed much since its inception, yet it’s still considered an ‘old device’, mostly due to its limited capability in terms of its hard drive and memory. These days, the Xbox 360 is more than capable of handling even the most complex of games. In fact, it was initially designed to be a home entertainment device for multimedia content, which is quite a feat because of its original form factor.
Even more impressive is the fact that the Xbox 360 is still considered a ‘gold standard’ for gaming devices. Most people who play video games on their phones or tablets consider them to be ‘poor man’s’ versions of an Xbox 360 experience, due to their small size and the presence of a touch screen, making them easily portable and accessible for frequent touch-ups. Many games on mobile devices also ‘free roam’ the screen, giving the player the illusion that they are actually playing on a larger screen than they are physically interacting with. The image below might help explain the popularity of mobile games in comparison to their console brethren; gaming on the move has become so common that dedicated mobile game consoles such as the one below have become a thing of the past.
So, if you’re looking for ways to make money online, consider exploring your Xbox 360’s potential to become a successful source of income via one of the many available stock trading websites or through Amazon’s affiliate program, which pays you to promote products that are relevant to your niche. There, now you have an idea of how to make money with your Xbox 360.
