Microsoft announced it’s latest game console last week: the Microsoft Xbox One. Actually, calling it a game console is a big understatement. Microsoft has packed this new device with so much stuff not related to gaming, that it should properly be called an entertainment console. The idea is to use the console as the device to integrate all of the different media that you use daily, from cable service to streaming services like Hulu and Netflix, to playing BluRay DVDs and everything else. In fact, it does so many other things that true gamers are complaining that they’ve been ignored. On that front, Microsoft promises to debut some new games next month during the E3 Conference in LA designed specifically to take advantage of the new device’s capabilities.
The console now comes integrated with Microsoft’s motion detection technology made famous by the Kinnect add-on to the older Xbox as well as a voice recognition system that could literally eliminate the need for a remote control. Industry observers are claiming that Microsoft has hit a huge home run with the Xbox One and that Apple is going to have to scramble to keep up when they announce their long-rumored Apple TV.
