    XBOX ONE:

    The Xbox One is an upcoming video game console from Microsoft. Announced on May 21, 2013, it is the successor to the Xbox 360 and the third console in the Xbox family of consoles. The Xbox One is scheduled for release across North America, several European markets, Australia and New Zealand on November 22 2013[9], with later release in Japan and the remaining European markets in 2014.[10] It will directly compete with Sony's PlayStation 4 and Nintendo's Wii U as part of the eighth generation of video game consoles. Microsoft and various publications have classified the device as an "all-in-one entertainment system,"[13][14] making it a competitor to other home media devices such as the Apple TV and the Google TV platform.

    Moving away from the PowerPC based architecture used in the Xbox 360, the console features an AMD processor built around the x86-64 instruction set. The console places an increasing emphasis on entertainment and integration with the Kinect peripheral, offering the ability to use an existing set-top box to watch live television programming (augmented by an enhanced program guide with support for voice commands), a built-in Skype client, and improved second screen support. The console also provides new functionality for use in games, such as an expanded Xbox Live service, improved Kinect functionality, cloud computing, the ability to automatically record and share video highlights from gameplay, and integrated support for live streaming gameplay online.

    The console's initial policies surrounding online connectivity requirements, mandatory integration with Kinect, and ambiguous restrictions on the resale and sharing of used games led to mixed reviews and concerns after the console's reveal. In response to these criticisms, Microsoft announced they would be dropping all of the originally planned digital rights management and internet connection requirements, and the mandatory use of Kinect.

    HARDWARE:

    The Xbox One's exterior casing consists of a two-tone "liquid black" finish; with half finished in a matte grey, and the other in a glossier black. The Xbox One's components were designed to evoke a more entertainment-oriented and simplified design than previous iterations of the console; among other changes, the LED rings used by the Xbox 360 are replaced by a glowing white Xbox logo used to communicate the system's status to the user.

    The Xbox One has an APU with eight x86-64 cores clocked at 1.75 GHz] , based on the Jaguar architecture from AMD, and 8 GB of DDR3 RAM with a memory bandwidth of 68.3 GB/s.[6][32] The memory subsystem also features an additional 32 MB of "embedded static" RAM, or ESRAM, with a memory bandwidth of 102 GB/s. Eurogamer has been told that for simultaneous read and write operations the ESRAM is capable of a theoretical memory bandwidth of 192 GB/s and that a memory bandwidth of 133 GB/s has been achieved with operations that involved alpha transparency blending.[34] The system includes a 500 GB non-replaceable hard drive,[35] and a Blu-ray Disc optical drive. Kotaku, Game Informer, and Gizmodo state that 3 GB of RAM will be reserved for the operating system and apps, leaving 5 GB for games. The graphics processing unit (GPU) is based on an AMD GCN architecture with 12 compute units, which have a total of 768 cores,] running at 853 MHz providing an estimated peak theoretical power of 1.31 TFLOPS.[41] For networking, the Xbox One supports Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11n wireless, and Wi-Fi Direct.

    The Xbox One will support 4K resolution (3840×2160) (2160p) 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.[42] The Xbox One will support HDMI 1.4 for both input and output, and does not support composite or component video.

    Xbox General Manager of Console Development Leo del Castillo has said the Xbox One will be able to monitor internal temperatures and adjust accordingly. As the system generates more heat, the fan speed will be increased to compensate. Additional measures can be taken, including forcing the hardware to run in a lower power state – a new feature that wasn't present on the Xbox 360. Restricting power consumption lowers maximum performance, but the setting would be intended as a last resort to avoid overheating that can lead to permanent hardware damage.

    CONTROLLER:

    The Xbox One controller maintains the overall layout found in the Xbox 360 design. The directional pad has been changed to a four-way design, and the battery compartment is slimmer. Menu and View buttons have replaced the Start and Back buttons.[46] Each trigger will also feature independent rumble motors called "Impulse Triggers", which allows developers to program directional vibration. One trigger can be made to vibrate when firing a gun, or both can work together to create feedback that indicates the direction of an incoming hit. It remains to be seen exactly how developers will use the new feature.[47] Pre-ordered Xbox One controllers have the words "Day One 2013" engraved in the center.

    KINECT:

    The Xbox One will ship with an updated version of the Kinect sensor; the new Kinect uses a 1080p wide-angle time-of-flight camera (in comparison to the VGA resolution of the previous version), and processes 2 gigabits of data per second to read its environment. The new Kinect has greater accuracy over its predecessor, can track up to 6 skeletons at once, perform heart rate tracking, track gestures performed with an Xbox One controller, and scan QR codes to redeem Xbox Live gift cards. The Kinect microphone remains active at all times by default so it can receive voice commands from the user when needed, even when the console is in sleep mode (so it can be woken back up with a command).[50][51][52]

    As was the case on the Xbox 360, Kinect usage is optional, and privacy settings are available for adjusting how the sensor operates

    A Windows-compatible version of the new Kinect will be released in 2014.

    MEDIA:

    Similarly to Windows 8, the Xbox One will be able to snap applications (such as music, video, Skype, and Internet Explorer) to the side of the screen as a form of multitasking. The Xbox One will also be able to serve as a pass-through for an existing television set-top box over HDMI. This functionality allows users to watch live TV from their existing provider through the console, and access features such as show recommendations, an electronic program guide, and voice commands. The set-top box is controlled by the console through either an IR blaster or the HDMI-CEC protocol.

    VOICE CONTROL:

    The console will feature a similar, albeit richer set of voice control abilities than those found in the first generation Kinect. This will allow users to control Xbox functions via voice command. All voice control will be coordinated through the Kinect, and with this ability Skype will also become a function of the new Xbox.

    OPERATING SYSTEM:

    The device will run three operating systems: Xbox OS, an OS based on the Windows kernel, and another OS that will allow the other two operating systems to communicate by virtualisation (as a hypervisor). Such integration will include features like snapped Skype calls while in game.[59]

    The Windows edition on the Xbox will not be compatible with standard Windows apps, though developers will be able to port them over with little effort.

    CLOUD COMPUTING:

    Microsoft have stated that the Xbox Live service will be scaled up to use 300,000 servers for Xbox One users, but have not stated how many of the servers will be physical and how many will be virtual.[61] Cloud storage will be offered to save music, films, games and saved content and developers will be able to use Live servers (along with the Windows Azure cloud computing platform) to offer "massive", "living and persistent worlds."[62] The service will still be subscription-based. The friends list will expand to 1,000 friends.

    SMARTGLASS:

    Xbox SmartGlass will provide extended functionality on the Xbox One, allowing Windows Phone smartphones, Windows RT, and Windows 8 tablets to be used as a "second screen." A demo during the E3 press conference demonstrated its use for setting up a multiplayer match in another game in the background on a tablet while playing another game on the television.

    RECORDING AND STREAMING:

    Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be able to use the Upload Studio app to edit and share clips from the last five minutes of gameplay footage that is automatically recorded by the console.[67] Integration with the live streaming platform Twitch will also be provided; users will be able to use voice commands to immediately begin streaming footage of their current game directly to the service, and use the Kinect microphone for commentary and voiceovers.[68][69] Despite the ability to record gameplay, the Xbox One will not include DVR functionality for recording television programs; executive Yusuf Mehdi indicated that the Xbox One would "work in tandem" with existing TV providers, but that Microsoft may need to work with them directly to provide extended functionality such as DVR integration.

    A kinectless xb1 seems more likely than a price drop right now.

    Xbox One available in store at Launch Confirms Microsoft


    Microsoft Game Studios vice president Phil Spencer has confirmed that stocks of the Xbox One will be held back at launch to ensure that the consoles are available in store. This means that if you haven’t pre-ordered, you will have the chance to at least be able to pick up an Xbox One in store at launch. As to how many other people have the same idea would determine your success, but that is definitely Microsoft’s aim.

    Speaking to Game Informer, Phil Spencer had to say, “You want people to be able to walk in the store and buy one on day one, so you’re trying to manage the inventory that isn’t pre-sold, It’s not a yield problem, it’s us trying to manage the hardware side.”

    “I want parents who don’t think about pre-ordering electronics to be able to walk in and have a chance to find a box. There might be a line, but I don’t want it to be that if you didn’t pre-order in September, you can’t get one. That doesn’t feel like a great consumer experience.”

    So while stocks for pre-orders are flying out faster than they can be replaced, Microsoft certainly has the intentions of making their next-gen console available to as many people as possible. Spencer also goes on to add that the launch will be much better than that of the Xbox 360.

    “Availability should feel a lot better than it did for 360,” he says. “If people want to pick up more controllers and games, they’ll be there. We feel really good about our pre-order number, and we’re managing it through allocation rather than demand.

    “Pre-Order isn’t the business. It’s way more important to me what happens when people walk in the store. The business is selling consoles,”

    If you want to guarantee your Xbox One on day one, it is still best to pre-order your console in advance, providing you can find a retailer still accepting pre-orders.

    Nope you would have to purchase them for the XBOX One and word is that GTA won't even be made for the next gen systems. I've sold my 360 and now I'm contemplating purchasing another one now for GTA.

    I THINK MS HAS DONE A GOOD JOB OF CLOSING THE GAP. BOTH SYSTEMS PRETTY MUCH LOOK LIKE A TOSS UP AT THIS POINT. OF COURSE THOSE STUCK ON THE EARLY REVEAL BETWEEN PS4 AND XBOX WILL RUN WITH THAT.

    That makes my decision even easier. GTV now and that should more than hold me over till i feel its time to buy the One. Then ill buy 2K and Battlefield. I refuse to buy another COD game i got tired of the last 3 months after it came out and they wont fool me again.
