    Default Microsoft Looks to One-Up the Competition with 'Xbox One'


    On Tuesday, Microsoft lifted the veil on its next-gen voice-controlled video game console called the "Xbox One."

    According to Microsoft, its first gaming console in eight years packs exclusive video and software content, not the least of which is a new "Halo" series produced by Steven Spielberg.

    The Xbox One, which will be available later this year at a price to be announced, will also be the first platform to release the next installment in Activision Blizzard Inc's blockbuster shooter franchise, "Call of Duty".
    Already billed as the ultimate gaming and entertainment hub, Microsoft is clearly taking aim at rival entertainment platforms being cultivated by Apple and Google.

    "The world's largest software company also sees the Xbox One as a broader strategic piece in the battle with Apple Inc, Google Inc and others to control consumer entertainment in the age of tablets and smartphones," reads a report by Bill Rigby and Malathi Nayak of Reuters.

    And windows has officially beat apple in completely changing the living room. I wish Steve jobs was still alive. I am also starting to think the Apple TV is just a rumor and will never come to past.

    I think Microsoft is picking up where Steve Job's Apple left off.
    With the surface Pro for business travelers to the living room entertainment of XBox One.

    So bad, PS4 is everything it has plus more. Also, doesn't have a HUGE controller, and yearly payments for online.

    The ps4 is a joke. They haven't even shown anything about it except the controller. Plus the 360 controller is probably the most comfortable controller I've ever used. And all I have to say about the yearly payments is you get what you pay for.

    If apple made an Apple TV that was effective... Possibly make a controller like the Wii U. A touchpad for controlling AND gaming plus the ability to run iPhone/iPad apps...

    I'm a long time PlayStation fan but tbh I think Xbox has won the best current console at the moment. Paying for Live is disappointing which I don't agree with but overall seems a better console. Just hope they don't put a silly price tag on top of it.
    Apple should make a game console but don't think I could afford yearly minor updates. Ha.

    or looks like people don't understand how ram works. we are going to end up work the same amount of free ram as the Xbox 360. and the name is absolutely retarded. now we have (technically) two Xbox ones. and let it be known that I used to be a huge Xbox fan until the ouya.

    the PlayStation is there biggest joke every. why do were not know anything about it other than the controller and like two features? not to mention that they get shutdown every month for like a week. it's hilarious.

    You do realize this is a gaming system with bells and whistles not many asked for?

    This thing is gross, first off it looks like someone slapped a cd drive into an old VHS player, secondly it's not backwards compatible with 360 games, and third, you have to pay extra $ if you want to play pre-owned games, on top of the fact they are still gonna charge u for xbox live so you can play online. Windows phone failed, windows 8 failed, and now xbox one is gonna fail. WTG Microsoft.

    I think it's very nice and clean looking and with 8GB of memory along with everything else it will once again smoke Sony. And if you can't afford 4 dollars a month for the exclusive content and numerous other features of live then sit home and keep telling yourself PSN is better lmao.

    These statements could be true for ps4 as well. We don't know because they haven't said anything about anything. They are going to wait for the reactions of the Xbox announcement and play the comforting role

    it's not about what it looks like(unless staring at the console is how you play games??????????), it's about what it can do and they've only shown us what they can do with it, wait until it's in the real world and see what we can do

    Boo! No Back-wards Xbox 360 compatibility due to new system over-haul, additional fees for used games, and constant internet connection required... Sounds like Microsoft is doing the same thing it did with Windows 8, limiting your choice and making you take their "new and improved" version. Sounds like alot of BS! Let me be the first to say I will not be rushing out to buy one ;P
