Xbox One

This evening Microsoft announced the new Xbox. It's called 'Xbox One', so no Durango, Infinity or 720, just One. I think it's a weird name because it's the third Xbox. The Xbox One will come in 2013, but when is not told by Microsoft. The interface from the Xbox One looks like Windows 8, which means even coloured squares. The console can show two menus at the same time, so you can watch a movie and Skype with a friend at the same time for example. You can who these menus and hide them with voice control and by movements, which are detected by Kinect 2.0. Every new Xbox will have Kinect 2.0 standard included. Kinect 2.0 can detect movements much better. As you can see on the second image, Kinect can make a very realistic 3D model with it's camera's. The Xbox One will get 8 GB RAM, just like the PS4.

You can't play Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One. The reason is that the Xbox 360 games are DVD games and the Xbox One has a Blue-Ray driver. Maybe the Xbox 360 games you own are available for download on your Xbox One, but this isn't confirmed by Microsoft. Forza Motorsport 5 will be one of the release games of the Xbox One. EA and Microsoft made a big deal, so if you have an Xbox One and an EA game, you will get several extra's. I'm not going to buy the Xbox One, because I love PlayStation, are you going to buy the Xbox One or the PlayStation 4?
