Xbox One is the third console in the Xbox family and successor to Xbox 360. Xbox One was announced by Microsoft in May 2013 and is expected to be released in November 2013. Xbox One is a part of the eighth generation of the gaming consoles and will compete with Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Nintendo’s Wii U.
Xbox One is not just a gaming console, and is considered as an “all in one entertainment system” and can prove to be tough competition to media devices such as Apple TV and Google TV.
Xbox One emphasizes more on overall entertainment and has a built in Skype client and improved second screen support. The console provides expanded Xbox Live service and an improved Kinect functionality, cloud computing and integrated support for live streaming gameplay online.
