Everything is more "modern" in the Xbox One, which has enjoyed four years of development, and will be delivered with Kinect accessory voice and gesture commands. It recognizes the faces of users and propose specific content based on user activity. Thus, everything can be controlled by voice and additional software like Skype or Web browser, will preinstalled.

Do not expect this new console before "the end of the year", according to Microsoft, with this version is offered the opportunity to enter in shows and compete with Apple TV, GoogleBox and others. The price is not yet known but launching issue, the United States and Great Britain should have the scoop. Several known and anticipated games will be available at the output, such as Call of Duty Ghosts Activision or EA Sports Fifa 14. 15 games are developed by Microsoft studios, including 8 new titles. 


 what Microsoft do not spread ?

All this things are good, but during his press conference, Microsoft did not quite unpacked. For example, there will be no backwards compatibility with Xbox 360 games because "the system is based on a different architecture,". But this is not all Microsoft buries the second hand market.

For each game purchased on physical media will be installed on the hard drive of the console and connected with a single Xbox Live account. And according to Phil Harrison, Corporate VP of Microsoft, you can lend a physical game to a friend but it will still pay to tie the game in its Windows Live account. All this is still rather obscure because prices were not disclosed.


According to Wired, Microsoft has offered some developers to create games that can rely on the computing power of the Azure cloud service rather than the hardware capabilities of the console. This also means that it will be connected to the web to play.
