Microsoft unveiled the new “Xbox One” console in Redmond today, with highlights including souped-up hardware, live TV integration, Skype functionality, an upgraded (and bundled) Kinect sensor, a “snap view” for multitasking, and an operating system that bridges the worlds of Xbox and Windows.
The company also announced partnerships with the NFL and EA Sports, and showed off the console’s new graphics engine with a preview of “Call of Duty Ghosts.”
No pricing was announced, and the timing was described only as “later this year.” I’m still in Redmond gathering information, but in the meantime you can read our posts below for more details, and watch the video above to see how Microsoft is presenting the console to potential buyers.
