XBOX ONE, COMING SOON!
If you’re like everyone else and their mother, you’ve been eagerly anticipating Microsoft’s release of the successor to the wildly popular Xbox 360, the Xbox One. Last week, the company announced some of its highlights, but no exact release date just yet (surprise, surprise). Here’s what we do know…
In case you’re wondering why it’s called the “One” when it’s actually the third console to be released, the answer is simple. It will literally house all the entertainment your living room could ever need, all in ONE incredible console. The Xbox One will feature three operating systems in one, so you can game, watch live TV (and Skype chat with your friends while you do it) or listen to music seamlessly, plus its ridiculously reactive technology will satisfy your every whim in an instant. Say you want to switch from gaming to TV. Just say the word. Literally. The Xbox one responds to your voice, seamlessly switching from one input to another with commands like, “Xbox, game,” or “Go to music,” or “Watch TV.” Every console comes with Kinect, so it can naturally respond not only to your voice, but your movements and gestures as well.
Your One will get to know you, and will then customize your personal home screen to reflect what you like.And of course, there are the games. Microsoft has promised 15 exclusive games within the first year of Xbox One. Plus, since it’s powered by the cloud, you’ll never have to download another game update again. As they say in their new TV spot, Microsoft wants you to have a relationship with your TV. With a console as accommodating as this one, this is one relationship that really could be “the One.”
