Don Mattrick took the stage to reveal the next incarnation of the console in a world wide revealing of the game. The Xbox One kind of looks like an old VCR. But one of the features that the MS was more inclined towards in showing off was the next generation kinetic. Another interesting features is the voice command, just by saying “Xbox on” the console will turn on and you will see the home screen, it also features other commands through voice that will make the console shift to whatever it is that you want it to do given that its with in the domain of commands.

The new kinetic sensor bar operates with a 1080 HD camera integrated in it, better voice recognition and a improved capability to detect the hand, wrist and shoulder movements. This as a whole improves the gaming experience and takes it to a whole other level. All this is not cheap either, buying one of these babies will cost you atleast 400 quids (approximate). The Xbox One has over 40 design improvements. It now includes new impulse triggers, a new d-pad and an enhanced, longer lasting battery, integrated by default so no more fiddling with batteries if you don’t buy a separate rechargeable power pack.
