Microsoft Reveals the Xbox One

Microsoft Reveals the Xbox One

The next generation gaming console "Xbox One" is launched on Tuesday during an event held at Microsoft's headquarter in Redmond, Washington. It is in the open and just looking at it makes the mind wonder. The Xbox One is for the next generation of gamers who can’t get enough of the entertainment and pleasure that comes from manipulating life-like images on screen. With a seamless exterior that has been called “liquid black” by the makers, the Xbox One is the epitome of minimalist design that contains some of the most complex and intricate computer gadgetry.

When you gaze at Xbox One in admiration you are left in a trance by its amazing outer simplicity. Appearing more like an example of a TiVo, it is a box-like device. It has been a little less than a decade since the same old Xbox 360 was in operation. People were getting a little tired of it. They wanted something new and more exciting. Now they finally have it in the form of the Xbox One, which is the latest version.

Essentially the experience consumers desired was of a living room type of environment. This the Xbox One delivers with bull’s eye precision. You may skip from games to TV to movies to music in the blink of an eye. And there is voice recognition so all you will have to do is utter a command and your wishes will be answered. The presence of Skype and a Blu-Ray device are other benefits that the Xbox One affords its users.

As for the games available on this smart machine, they have a high resolution and while you are playing them it almost feels like you are actually a participant in the action. The featured EA Sports includes such genres as football, basketball and the martial arts. Then there is car racing, an all-time favorite. There are tons of other games you can play on your Xbox One. As for the Kinect Sensor it sports, it allows your pulse to be taken while you exercise. Besides this, its 500 gigabyte hard drive, x86 processor, USB3.0 ports and killer apps make it a source of pride for owners and a reason for envy for those who refuse to buy one.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
