I am glad to see the names Xbox 720 and Durango were just rumors. The name “Xbox One” is telling because Microsoft is setting out to make this new next generation machine “your one stop shop” for entertainment. Launching worldwide November 2013, analysts have predicted it will cost between $300 and $500 usd, so start saving your money now.
Outside of playing video games, the Xbox One will allow you to play Blue Ray Discs, utilize Skype (via Kinect), watch live Cable
TV, listen to music, search the entertain, stream shows and videos via Netflix and Hulu and record video content on its built in DVR. The built in DVR means you will not need to lease one from your cable subscriber. All these features can be accessed and utilized by voice commands!
Skype sex on a big flat screen in HD….Hmmmm
combination of the two that enables multitasking.Xbox Live will be updated to support the new cloud-based features. Microsoft will have 300,000 servers on hand for the Xbox One, up from 3,000 servers for Xbox 360. Good Lawd!
I am thinking this may be exclusive to Xbox Live subscribers, the same way “House of Cards” is for Netflix.
The NFL is also partnering to create a fully immersive experience that lets fans switch between watching a game to checking fantasy football statistics using SmartGlass and Kinect. Smart move!
EA announced its collaboration with Microsoft to ensure Xbox One is the home platform for their major sports franchises. That includes FIFA, Madden, NBA Live, and UFC. Each of these will be powered by EA’s new Ignite Engine, one focused on detailed animations and reactive, dynamic AI and interaction with the sports field and fans.
Now that the wait is almost over, what do you think? Feel free to share your feedback.
