Last Tuesday, Microsoft announced their latest Xbox console—called the Xbox One—at their A New Generation conference. Dubbed as “ultimate all-in-one home entertainment system,” it aims to unite every component of a household’s entertainment system to create an inclusive media experience.

Inside the Xbox One

Microsoft’s Xbox One features cloud storage, Blu-ray capabilities, better graphics, and faster processor than the previous model. Aside from that, its new controller has a more ergonomic design. It has an integrated battery compartment and the much-awaited directional pad design.

The Xbox One also brings in the new-generation Kinect. Its sensor boasts multi-microphone array, which can distinguish a user’s voice amidst the background noise. Because of this, users can verbally switch into TV, games, Skype or other Xbox One experience.


It’s been eight years since the Xbox 360 made its debut. With Microsoft’s Xbox One, it will be exciting to see how it will go up against the updated Sony and Nintendo consoles, as well as the smaller startups like the Android-based Ouya.
