Xbox One Console Unveiled By Microsoft

After months of intense speculation about its potential new features, Microsoft debuts its first gaming console in eight years.
Microsoft has debuted its new Xbox One, announcing the company’s first gaming console in eight years will come with exclusive video and software content.
The Redmond, Washington-based software maker says with its ability to flip between games, television movies and other entertainment, the new console will satisfy all of a household’s media needs.
One highlight of Xbox One touted during Tuesday’s launch event is a Halo television series produced by Academy Award-winning director Steven Spielberg. Xbox One will hit retail stores later this year – the exact date has not been released – at a still-unknown price.
The device’s launch comes after months of intense speculation on industry blogs about its potential new features.
Microsoft representatives said it interacts with television, responds to voice and gesture commands, and enables Skype video calling.
Don Mattrick, the president of interactive entertainment business for Microsoft, said the company spent four years developing the “all-in-one home entertainment system”.
During the demonstration, Microsoft employees showed how the console can flip channels at the bidding of a voice command and even bring up a channel guide when asked “What’s on HBO?”.
Xbox One will also be the first gaming platform to release the next instalment of the Call Of Duty first person shooter franchise.
Microsoft hopes its third console, after the original Xbox and Xbox 360, will draw gamers back to the stationary platform, as mobile gaming has taken an increasing market share in recent years.
The Xbox One’s primary competition will come from Nintendo’s new Wii U device and Sony’s forthcoming PlayStation 4, both of which have gone in the direction of incorporating streaming content and social media features.
