Microsoft claims that the Xbox One (the console formerly known as Xbox 720) as being the ultimate entertainment system. The Xbox One’s Kinect voice recognition feature integrates live games, movies, TV with your favorite web services like Skype giving Xbox One users that all-in-one entertainment system feel. Microsoft re-designed the Xbox One making it look different from its predecessor the Xbox 360. Microsoft says that the design direction they took is their way of imparting the Xbox One’s capability of being an all-in-one entertainment system.
Compared to previous game consoles by Microsoft, the Xbox One is more like a mini PC. The Xbox One, thanks to its specifications, can easily compete with its arch nemesis, the PS4. Xbox One, or Xbox 720 if you prefer, is powered by a x64 eight-core AMD Jaguar CPU, 8GB of DDR RAM, and 500GB hard drive. Aside from the USB 3.0 ports, HDMI in and out ports, the Xbox One has a Wi-Fi direct functionality letting you connect it with the controller. Despite the Xbox 360, the Xbox One is 802.11n Wi-Fi capable and features a Blu-Ray device. Another cool feature of Xbox 720 is the Kinect built into its very core. To switch on the Xbox One, what users have to do is simply say “Xbox On”, since the console is always listening, except of course when unplugged.
Like its rival, the PS4, the Xbox One also has games like: Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, Dead Rising 3, Fifa 2014, NBA 2k14, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Just Dance 2014, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, Killer Instinct, Fighter Within, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2, and Zumba Fitness: World Party.
