The next generation of Xbox has been revealed and it is aim to compete with Sony Playstation 4. The Xbox One is designed not just for games but also an entertainment hub on your living room. From the name itself, it really looks like a simple box. They revealed some games like Call of Duty: Ghosts, Forza Motorsport, Quantum break and EA Games with EA Ignite engine. So what’s new inside the Xbox One? Check it out after the break.
The Xbox One wants to push to the boundaries of becoming an all-in-one entertainment system for you. Xbox One will bring you live TV directly from your console. Unfortunately, Live TV will only support the people in USA. Actually, almost all of the entertainment features on Xbox One will only support the mainland USA
Microsoft is very proud that the new Xbox one will have a Windows operating system base on their 3 Operating systems — Windows 8, Windows RT and Windows Phone 8. I guess the consumers wouldn’t care about that much but I think the developers would love it because of their almost similarities. Speaking of Windows, the Xbox One will feature Skype and Snap that works very similar to Windows 8. Snap enables you to work on two things at once. Yes, you could watch your favorite movie and talk to Skype to your favorite people. Don’t worry, the Xbox One comes with Kinect 2.0 that you can use for Skype video calls. Another good thing about the Xbox One is you can have Game DVR. So whenever you have an epic killing streak on Call of Duty, you could share it to your friends.
But of course, the Xbox One comes with a disappointment. Just like what I’ve said earlier, some of the entertainment features of the Xbox One will only be available in the US and the design of the Xbox is kinda simple and ugh. Box-y?. It looks like our VHS player. Microsoft also focused on the entertainment features and not the gaming part. I was expecting something extraordinary from the Xbox One but there was none. The Xbox One will also not support backwards compatibility since this one will be powered by a X86 8-core processor. I guess, I really didn’t like the next-gen consoles.
