Xbox One
« on: May 22, 2013, 04:19:55 AM »
Here are the official details:

The Xbox One has a CPU with eight x86-64 cores, 8 GB of DDR3 RAM, though 3 GB will be reserved for apps and OS , a 500 GB hard drive, and a Blu-ray Disc optical drive. The Xbox One will support 4K resolution (38402160) video output and 7.1 surround sound. Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president of marketing and strategy for Microsoft, has stated that there is no hardware restriction that would prevent games from running at 4K resolution. The Xbox One will support HDMI 1.4 for both input and output. The Xbox One does not have a video output for either composite video or component video.


Features

  • Media inter-connectivity
  • Set-top box integration
  • Voice control
  • Xbox 360 Controller
  • Improved Kinect
  • Will run 3 operating systems
  • Scaled up Xbox Live service

Now the press conference didn't go well at all, and I think they focused way too much on the additional features. But some of the features above look promising to me. Discuss about the console here, and try to stay on topic. :)

I dunno. My Laptop is in term of HW on par (maybe better) and am I the only one to whom it looks like they took NES as a base for it?

Well, there goes all the seriousness of this thread :D. Not complaining though, even I'm enjoying the jokes being made on the joke of a reveal.

Which film is that .gif from, by the way?

The PS4 now supports used games with no fees and no DRM or log in once requirement. And now this:

Official PlayStation Used Game Instructional Video


Looks like its nearly done for Xbox One now.

Although the PS4 will require a subscirption to PS+ for playing online. Not that bad though.
