Microsoft's Xbox One Limited Edition Console is Unboxed

A couple of months are left in its launch which will take place later on in November. Yet the Xbox One is primed for the pump. The first 20 units were un-boxed by Microsoft’s Director of Programming in a video especially made for the express purpose of advertising. Basically they were limited edition First Day Versions and sold like they were for free. If you happen to be one of the very lucky who got a hold of these limited edition units, you have everything to thank for in the world.

The gamepad will have DOE (Day One Edition) emblazoned on it. It also sports a chrome d-pad. The mint condition editions have a price tag of $500 which is the same as normal versions. A complimentary wired headset comes with both too. This article did not accompany the Xbox One in the past.

You may recharge the gamepads via a microUSB. The opening ceremony, captured on video, was a very pleasant surprise. The console has a Kinect Sensor to boot. The liquid black finish makes it look so sophisticated. And the design proportions are 16:9 which make it truly a wonder to behold.

Other features on it include: a 500 Gigabyte hard drive, Blue-ray facility, IR Blaster, HDMI input and output connectors and a Kensington Security Slot. A 1080 pixel camera is one of the major features too. As for the chatting quality it is absolutely superb. The video was just a preliminary glimpse into the real thing which will come to high tech stores hopefully by November.

AFL Rd 16 - North Melbourne v Hawthorn
As someone blessed with the opportunity to try the Surface Pro 3 early, I can say it is truly a game changer. It is very light, has great battery life and a big beautiful display. The tablet/laptop hybrid is far beyond offerings by competitors, including Apple. If you even consider buying a Macbook Air over this, you are arguably making a huge mistake. With that said, the Surface Pro 3 will begin hitting stores this Friday, June 20th. While the computer is great out of the box, it is not ...
