Microsoft have finally revealed their latest Console the Xbox One
Lets look at this console
I am personally not shocked at Microsoft caving in and using the hardware of their rival Sony as Blue-Ray has shown its Data capacity surpasses that of what is currently on the market unless Microsoft had decided to go all digital distribution of games, for a full HD experience they really didn’t have a choice in the optical drive for the console.
So with this choice we can expect games to be at least at Par with the new Sony console in terms of Graphics and the best part about this, Games which are Data hungry will fit on one Xbox one CD and not come in multiple disks.
500GB of storage
Now Microsoft have learnt how people like digitally distributed content when it comes to movies and even Music and for this Microsoft provide a service for people to purchase Movies through Xbox live and be able to download the content to the console or PC via ZUNE.
by providing a Large HDD Microsoft are providing a platform for users to download and store a large amount of Movies and music along with DLC to their console allowing for greater integration into their living room as an entertainment system.
IBM 8-core CPU
More power people, as a Console gamer and a PC gamer I understand never to overestimate and underestimate the Processors which are marketed and included in consoles as they are outdated in mere months.
but as this is an 8 core CPU it will still have plenty of kick in it to last it until it is surpassed by the next Microsoft console to replace in a few years time.
A single 40-nanometer chip contains both the CPU and GPU rather than the two dedicated 90-nm chips needed in the 360. In fact, a custom SOC (system on a chip) module made by AMD contains the CPU/GPU chip, the memory, the controller logic, the DRAM, and the audio processors, and connects directly to the heat sink via a phase-change interface material.
