May 2013 - July 2019


Xbox One replaced Xbox 360 in 2013 as Microsoft’s flagship video game console. It’s a direct competitor to Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Nintendo’s Wii U. Microsoft originally positioned Kinect to be an integral part of Xbox One, but security concerns and low consumer/developer interest have contributed to the motion tracking and voice recognition device becoming somewhat of an afterthought. Unlike PS4, Xbox One One supports backwards compatibility for select previous generation games.

The console’s connectivity options and tech specs include HDMI, three USB 3.0 ports, 8 GB of DDR3 RAM, 1.75 GHz 8-Core AMD custom CPU, Blu-ray/DVD optical drive, non-replaceable 500GB/1TB hard drive (supports external storage), 802.11n Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet. Exclusive Xbox One game titles include Sunset Overdrive, Halo 5: Guardians, Gears of War 4, and Crackdown 3.
