Xbox One Revealed: All-in-one Home Entertainment System
At a special event today at the company Redmond campus, Microsoft has officially announced its new console, Xbox One. The new console is said to be the “the ultimate, all in one home entertainment system“. Launching around the world later this year.
Bundled with a new Kinect sensor, based on the latest technology, the system will allow for more physical gestures such as grab, pan and swipe up, along with new voice commands. The system can switch between games, movies, music and other things instantly.
The new system will also let you find TV shows using motion controls, voice, or by visiting what’s popular section on the Xbox community.
Xbox One will sport 8GB of RAM, 500 GB HDD, and be based on 64bit architecture, it will play Blu-Ray discs, transfer via USB 3.0, and allow for Bluetooth and direct WiFi.
Microsoft has also confirmed that all Xbox One games will require mandatory installation onto the system’s hard drive and, to install the same disc onto another user’s drive, a fee must be paid; i.e. games will be tied to a single user account. Another tidbit concerning the always-online speculation, according to Kotaku, the device is said to only require a connection every 24 hours. Hard drives in the Xbox One will not be replaceable and the USB 3.0 port is there for external storage so you can put anything on there you would on the internal drive, including games. All that TV stuff Microsoft were proud to show off in its conference? You actually need to buy a separate device in order for that to work, that’s it, it will not be supported out of the box; Xbox One Live TV will require a separate supported receiver device with HDMI output to function.
