Just earlier today, we saw Microsoft unveiling it’s new XBox One games console.
- 8GB RAM
- 500GB Hard Drive
- an 8-Core CPU
- USB 3.0
- 802.11n Wi-Fi
- Ethernet Lan
- HDMI with Full HD(1080p) support and 4k support (UHD)
- X86 Architecture (which means your XBox 360 games will not work with this new console)
Of course, when you get your XBox one, it will also come with the new Kinect camera. It will have HD capability which means you will be able to send decent HD video out of it. This will also be the way to control games which can take advantage of the Kinect features(where your body becomes the controller).
In terms of the software, users will be able to watch live TV on it and change the channel using voice commands. The Kinect camera will also come in handy because the XBox one will also sport a Skype application. There are also going to be 15 titles which will be launching exclusively on the XBox one.
Another interesting point to note is that the XBox One will be running three operating systems: A cut down version of Windows 8, the XBox game OS and a third one to help everything work together properly.
So when will we be seeing the XBox One(you might ask)? Well, Microsoft have said that it would launch later this year. No details on pricing just yet though. However, we will see more information during E3 in June.
