Preview of new Xbox One console

PREVIEW OF NEW XBOX ONE CONSOLE Microsoft’s latest game console, Xbox One, is hitting store shelves Friday (22 NOV. 2013). Combining powerful new technology, the console serves as a hub for the living room entertainment experience. The successor to the best-selling Xbox 360 and the third console in the Xbox series, the unit connects users to an array of games, TV shows and movies. Microsoft wants the consumer to think of Xbox One as more than a game machine. You can use it to watch movies on Netflix and Hulu Plus. You can hook it up to your cable box to watch live TV. “This system allows you to have these amazing new game experiences but it also brings all of your entertainment together in one place. Whether it’s TV or other apps and you can seamlessly move in and out of those experiences powered by Kinect,” said Marc Whitten, Xbox’s chief product officer. Still, if you’re considering buying an Xbox One this week, you probably have one thing in mind: games. “Because of the power of Xbox One we’re able to create this cinematic realism that we’ve never been able to see in video games before,” said Whitten. The Xbox One is a chunky black box that’s a little larger than its predecessor, the Xbox 360. It arrives with a respectable library of 22 titles, all sold separately. By and large, they look just as pretty as their counterparts on Sony’s PlayStation 4, which came out last week. Priced at $500 (U.S), Xbox One costs $100 more than the Playstation 4, which went on sale last week. You can license this story through AP Archive: Find out more about AP Archive:
