Microsoft’s much anticipated Xbox One is set to be released this Friday and compete with the recently released PlayStation 4.
The new Xbox One is the predecessor to the Xbox 360, which came out in 2005. The new console has a new box shaped design.
The new Xbox comes with a redesigned Xbox controller. The controller is very similar to the outgoing Xbox 360 controller, but has a much nicer control pad which prevents unintentional presses. It also has much improved rumble to provide users with a more immersive experience.
Microsoft’s goal with the Xbox One is to satisfy all forms of media consumption. It features HDMI in and out, which lets the Xbox become your complete television provider. It lets you do everything from playing video games, watching TV, recording TV, watching movies, surfing the web, and much more.
Senior Grant Pestana said, “I like how it would let you watch and do whatever you want. I also like how you can switch from playing games to watching videos on the internet browser.”
The biggest drawback about the Xbox is the price point. The only version they are offering is 500 GB, which costs $499. The reason for the big price point is because all of the Xboxes are shipped with the brand new Kinect camera.
Senior Scott Harris said, “I like the PlayStation better because it is $100 cheaper.”
Senior Russell Vallecillo said, “I think paying $500 is too much to pay for a machine like that. The games themselves cost another $60 on top of the cost for the Xbox.”
The competition between the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One will heat up when the Xbox gets released this Nov. 22.
