Today in Redmond, Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One, its vision for the future of home entertainment. The Xbox One will expand Microsoft’s Xbox agenda well beyond gaming, blurring the boundaries of gaming and interactive TV further than ever.
Let’s take a look.
The Xbox One may have made its photo op, but one big question remains: price. With so many advanced features on board, it’s hard to imagine that the console will be able to match the $299 bill of its predecessor’s base model. If Microsoft really wants to stave off the competition when the console becomes available—”later this year,” executives said—the Xbox One’s price tag needs to be as impressive as its spec sheet.
