Microsoft Xbox One

 

A worthy successor to the Xbox 360, and competitor in the modern console cold-war?

Beautiful graphics, great gameplay experience ; Subtly redesigned, extraordinarily comfortable controller ; Blu-ray disc playback ; HDMI input for pass-through from Freeview/Sky decoder ; Full web browser, YouTube support, Skype calling and other apps

Menu system is an awkward mix of 360 and Windows 8 ; Space-hungry, will not stand up on its end in ‘tower style ; Not compatible with Xbox 360 headsets ; Some features currently missing for NZ users (voice commands, EPG)

A suitable replacement for the Xbox 360, and one possible way to tie all your home entertainment together. The interface needs some work, though, and a future ‘slimmed down’ version would be very welcome.

XBOX ONE review : Microsoft’s next big thing is a thing of beauty

Microsoft's Xbox One gaming and entertainment console review

 

It's not everyday Microsoft releases a new Xbox gaming console but that day happens to be tomorrow with the launch of its latest and greatest – the Xbox One.

Xbox One Review: Absolutely Amazing (When It Works)

 

Eight years later, the Xbox 360′s successor — and Microsoft's latest bid to take over your living room — is here. Somehow it's both worth the wait and quite not fully baked.

Not yet. It’s generally dumb to buy any new console right at launch. PS4′s have been having issues with a “blue light of death,” and for all we know the Xbox One could have its own issues as well; the sting of the red ring of death is still fresh in...

Review: Xbox One first impressions

 

I've been lucky enough to have my review Xbox One – which most of us around the office or delightfully calling the Xbone – for a few days now. However, while I'm almost sure I could have just told everyone in the office “Sorry, important reviewing...

A great piece of hardware, just waiting for great games to match.
