Xbox One Features: 5 Reasons To Be Excited About the New Xbox

It’s finally here. After years of anticipation, Microsoft has unveiled its successor to the Xbox 360, the Xbox One. The new console adds a slew of new features that could easily take over your living room. “Can we take what you love and make it better?” Microsoft’s Don Mattrick said on stage at the Xbox Reveal event in Redmond, Wash. “The living room is too complex and Xbox wants to fix that.”

Packed with an octa-core processor, 8GB of RAM and 500 GB of storage space, the Xbox One’s new interface blends the current Xbox UI with Windows 8. So what do we love most about the new Xbox? Here’s a roundup of the best features you can look forward to when the Xbox One launches later this year.

    The last one about NFL didn’t really excite me :)..considering I don’t live in USA. But all is good.

  2. Argos Says:

    To be honest, none of these features gets me exited, or even remotely interested.
    For me as a fanatic gamer none of these have any priority.

    How about “Xbox- let’s kick some butt.” Make it a GAME CONSOLE – not another cable box! Come on Microsoft……

    I second Argos… none of this makes me want to go spend the money on a One…. I just want a game console. Looks like my next purchase will be a PS4.

    @Chris McCoy; I agree totally with you…… it’s definitely a so called “Cable Box”!!!!! I have all the PS’s in my house, love’em. When PlayStation came out with Blu-Ray, I was so eager to get the PS3. In my perspective, PS4 all the way!!!!!!!!!

    Go PlayStation!!!!!
