Xbox One

The Xbox 360 was a formidable machine, but eight years later it was showing more than a few signs of aging. Enter Xbox One. Not just a gaming rig, Xbox One powers up to the phrase “Xbox on”, listens for voice commands to select channels or movies, lets you “snap” an app to the screen for multitasking, and features a sleek reworked (but familiar) controller and more accurate Kinect with 1080p camera (and we haven’t even gotten to the games yet). Hardware within the box includes an 8-core processor, 8GB of RAM, 500GB hard drive, which should hopefully hold us off through the reign of the next-gen consoles.
