Xbox One


Xbox One is a home video game that was introduced by Microsoft. Microsoft has classified this device an all-in-one entertainment system making it a large competitor. Microsoft and various publications have classified the device as an “all-in-one entertainment system”, making it a competitor to other digital media players such as the Apple TV and the Google TVplatforms.

Xbox uses a windows platform, only. This gaming device has set a huge trend among all age groups and is growing rapidly.

Moving away from the Xbox 360’s PowerPC-based architecture and back into the x86 architecture used in the first Xbox, the console features an AMD processor built around the x86-64 instruction set. Xbox One places an increased emphasis on cloud computing and entertainment integration, offering the ability to overlay live television programming from an existing set-top box-with an enhanced program guide, split-screen multitasking of applications, and improved second screen support. The console optionally includes an upgraded Kinect sensor, providing richer motion tracking and voice recognition for use in the its user interface and games. The Xbox One also offers the ability for users to record and share highlights from or live stream game-play. The console’s controller was refined over that of the Xbox 360, with a redesigned d-pad, and triggers capable of delivering directional force feedback.

Prior to its official release, the Xbox One received mixed reviews; the entertainment-oriented features were praised, but there was controversy surrounding several policy changes since the Xbox 360, including a proposed always-on digital rights management system, and privacy concerns over a mandate for Kinect to be used at all times. Microsoft retracted these changes prior the console’s eventual launch, and the console received mixed, but mostly positive reception for its refined controller design, multimedia features, user interface, and voice navigation (albeit inconsistent in its performance).
