Microsoft reveals Xbox One

Microsoft has finally revealed its next generation games machine, named Xbox One.

The company showed off the box at the start of its still-ongoing conference – it’s a horizontal rectangular black box – not too dissimilar to the Xbox 360 Slim, although slightly more angular.

The front of the Xbox One holds the machine’s disc slot and power button. Xbox One’s new Kinect camera comes included in the box and is also more angular. It can capture 1080p video at 30FPS.

The console’s controller is wider and more ergonomically-shaped, Microsoft claimed. It’ll also have force feed in the pad’s triggers.

Inside the box, Microsoft boasted that the machine would contain a 500GB hard drive and 8GB of RAM.

A quick demo of the console’s dashboard showed a tiled interface similar to the existing Xbox 360 menus, again with voice controls via Kinect and SmartGlass compatibility.

Switching between games and television happens near-instantly, and is powered by voice control. Spread your hands and grab the screen and you’re back home.

Snap Mode allows you to run multiple programmes at once. Again, powered by voice.

“We believe we can evolve what you love and make it decidedly better,” Microsoft exec Don Mattress explained during today’s press conference.
