At its core Xbox One is a system designed by gamers, for gamers. It’s a platform offering immense power and new opportunities through innovative technology, unique architecture and unparalleled cloud support. Xbox One will be home to the biggest blockbusters and best developers in the world.
Powered for the Future – The raw horsepower under Xbox One’s hood has been designed to empower story tellers to deliver a new generation of games that look and feel like nothing else. Technologies across Microsoft were brought together to create an industry first, and married three distinct operating systems bringing a new level of power, performance and sophistication to the living room. Xbox One architecture provides deep and instant access to the hardware so creators have no limits in harnessing the power of our new console. The kernel of Windows provides consistent access to web-powered applications and experiences, and the third OS connects them together to create instant switching and multi-tasking for everything that Xbox One has to offer.
Connected and Ready / New Generation of Xbox LIVE – For every Xbox One in the living room four more are put in the cloud to give customers unparalleled power, storage and access to the games and content they love. Everything is stored and saved in the cloud and instantly available any time, from any Xbox One and customers will never again have to wait for a system or software update. This new generation of Xbox Live is powered by more than 300,000 servers, will surround and power every experience, delivering persistent living worlds, lasting legacies and deep social connections. Your Xbox One will also act as a dedicated Game DVR to capture your magic moments and save them to the cloud, allowing you to edit and share amongst your friends.
Better with Kinect / Deep Skype Integration / Xbox Controller Made Better – The revolutionary Kinect sensor has been re-designed for significantly greater precision, a wider field of view optimized for smaller spaces, and Skype fully integrated into the platform with full 1080p HD video chat. Every Xbox One will come with the new Kinect sensor, enabling more natural, intuitive voice and gesture controls across all forms of content. The Xbox controller has also undergone over 40 design innovations, making it the most comfortable and precise controller ever.
