Xbox One unveiled by Microsoft

MICROSOFT CORP.

The device is a platform that allows access to the full range of digital entertainment, from a single device.

The new Xbox is endowed with voice command that will command it by voice in the manner of Siri on iOS.

Moving from TV to music, diving into a game or chatting via Skype are almost controlled by voice or gesture actions.

A simple “Xbox on” launches the console, while switching to live television, music apps or Internet Explorer will be possible via voice commands.

Xbox One is primarily a technological breakthrough in terms of power. It comes with an 8-core 1.6GHz processor, 8GB of RAM, an 800MHz graphics processor, a 50GB 6x Blu-ray Disc drive and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity.

The Kinect sensor provides an update: the motion detector is reportedly more accurate, faster in the interpretation of gestures.

Previously officially confirmed, users can play without Internet access, but the Xbox One must necessarily be able to connect to the net regularly, at key points in order to save into Cloud, retrieve data, activate games etc.
