Ever wish you could chat with a friend on Skype while watching the playoffs? With Snap you can do both at the same time, on the same screen.

A new generation of Xbox Live.

Unleash the power of the cloud with a new generation of Xbox Live: the network that unites every member of the Xbox community. It also connects you to thousands of games, songs, TV shows, movies and sports. More importantly, it’s a scalable source of power that will grow stronger over time. Best of all, your games and profile are stored in the cloud, so every Xbox One console behaves like your very own. And because it’s all one service, your Xbox Live Gold membership will work on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Your games keep playing, even when you’re not.

Pick up right where you left off.
Want to check sports scores in the middle of a game? No problem. With auto-resume, your game is suspended right where you left off. So you can jump back instantly to the same spot. You can even start a movie or a game on one Xbox One and finish it on another.

Play without the wait.

With Xbox One, you can start playing immediately as games install. And updates install seamlessly in the background, so your games and entertainment won’t be interrupted.

Your games stay in sync with the world.

Imagine the player stats in your sports game being updated automatically based on the weekend’s results. It’s now possible with Xbox One. Thanks to the power of the cloud, game worlds stay in sync with the real world.

Meet the all-new Kinect.

The new Kinect is more precise, responsive and intuitive. Its unparalleled voice, vision, and motion technology lets you reach into games and entertainment like never before. Automatically sign in when you enter the room. Accelerate through a game with subtle gestures. Or navigate through your favourite TV shows with the sound of your voice.
Real Vision

Kinect Real Vision technology dramatically expands its field of view for greater line of sight. An all-new active IR camera enables it to see in the dark. And using advanced 3-D geometry, it can even tell if you’re standing off balance.

Real Motion

Kinect Real Motion technology tracks even the slightest gestures. So a simple squeeze of your hand results in precise control over a game or app, whether you're standing up or sitting down.

Real Voice

Kinect Real Voice technology focuses on the sounds that matter, thanks to an all-new multi-microphone array. Advanced noise isolation lets Kinect know who to listen to, even in a crowded room. And you can use your voice to launch any Xbox One experience from anywhere in the system, so you can quickly move from one thing to another.

Unparalleled precision and comfort.

The best gaming controller just got better with over 40 technology innovations. New Impulse Triggers deliver precise fingertip feedback for more realistic experiences. Thumbsticks, D-pad and contours are streamlined for improved precision and comfort in your hands.3

All together now.

Xbox SmartGlass turns your mobile phone or tablet into a second screen that intelligently interacts with your Xbox One. Navigate with your touch screen, pinch, and tap to surf the Web on your TV. Your wireless device becomes the ideal companion to your Xbox One as it serves up extended experiences of your favourite TV shows, movies, music, games, and sports.

  • Early days but a powerful console with some great potential

    With the One Microsoft have designed a console for as many markets as possible. It has an interface that is very similar to Windows 8, so will be familiar to most PC users, and a massively improved version of the previous generations Kinect motion control device. As well as playing games (which it does exceptionally well, ignore the claims that it is massively underpowered compared to the PS4 - in reality they are very close), the One also allows you to connect your existing Cable, Freeview or Satellite receiver so you can watch TV at the same time as doing other tasks using an innovative snap feature. Unfortunately the TV features are fairly useless outside of the US at the moment, but look for them to improve in later updates. With the included Kinect camera you also have an exceptional powerful Skype device for making free* calls to other Skype users (* Skype requires an XBox Live subscription). Out of the two new consoles the One has the much more compelling launch titles, with both Dead Rising 3 and Forza being exceptional titles. Ryse is an astounding looking game and certainly fun - but a little too simplistic for long term play, but will be worth a purchase when the price drops. Killer Instinct is a free to play game available for download and is possibly one of the best fighting games in recent history. Much has been said of the looks of the console and the size, but whatever your thoughts the facts are that it looks right under a TV with other home entertainment devices and the size means it can run a larger fan which translates to near silent operation (you have to put an ear to it to hear anything).
