Hands-On: Xbox One Review

 

Xbox One Review | With that in mind, I thought that it may be useful if we did put together a hands-on review of the Xbox One based on our experience from E3 2013 and the demos of the hardware and some games that we got behind closed doors.

If you are already committed to PS4, I don’t think that you will change your mind now. If you’re on the fence, think about whether or not Kinect and Microsoft exclusive games like Halo are critical for you. In the end, it really comes down to that.

Microsoft Xbox One

 

The Xbox One, Microsoft's current-generation console, has seen a user interface upgrade and the addition of limited backward compatibility, and it's still at the top of its game.

New interface is intuitive and accessible. Powerful hardware. Incorporates live television with OneGuide, HDMI passthrough, and USB tuner supports. Limited Xbox 360 backward compatibility.

Kinect integration and voice commands have been de-emphasized to the point of almost being completely dropped. Current backward compatibility list is very small.

Conclusions If you want a pure game system, the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 are in a dead heat. As a media streamer , though, especially if you subscribe to cable or satellite service, the Xbox One is a better bet. The soft abandonment of Kinect...

Xbox One Media Remote review

 

In Microsoft's perfect world, the Xbox One Media Remote wouldn't exist. Everyone would be happy controlling the Xbox One using their voice or gestures, and remotes would be a relic of our TV-watching past.

The Xbox One Media Remote makes it much more convenient to watch TV and movies on the Xbox One. It feels well-made and includes backlighting that engages as soon as you pick it up. And used with the Kinect, it can control other devices in your living...

Requires line-of-sight to the Xbox One console because it uses traditional IR control instead of Bluetooth or Wi-Fi Direct. Doesn't make it any easier to access your DVR from the Xbox One. Some of the buttons' functions aren't immediately apparent.

The Xbox One Media Remote is a must-have accessory that makes it much easier to accept a gaming console as the hub of your living room.

Microsoft is certain the Xbox One is their key to taking over living room entertainment in its entirety. Experiencing the Xbox One for the first time will almost certainly remind users of their first time working with Windows 8 - there's a lot of tiles...

Microsoft Xbox One Review: A Promising Start

 

Microsoft sets its sights on the living room with its new Xbox One game console. With the bundled Kinect and impressive multi-tasking capabilities, the new console looks to unify your home theater system with an impressive amount of utility.

Kinect is a powerful UI Tool ; Multi-tasking is fast and easy ; Games showcase strong performance and increased graphical fidelity

Lack of App Channel content ; $100 more than a PS4 ; Kinect as a game instrument remains unproven ; Xbox Live is essential for most apps and functions

At launch the Xbox One offers a framework that shows a considerable amount of potential; but it’s not perfect. The television integration works great and the ability pool content from various apps via the Xbox OneGuide is brilliant However, Microsoft...

Xbox One review: a fast and powerful work in progress

 

Your new running shoes have WiFi, but there are still -- still! -- no flying cars. We've got mini-supercomputers in our pockets, but where's the kitchen

Great battery life ; The best analog sticks on any gamepad ; Rumble triggers

Shoulder buttons are cumbersome ; Requires AA batteries

The Xbox One's controller is mostly a refined version of the last-gen gamepad, with the new shoulder buttons being the only real step backward.

Xbox One review

 

Microsoft didn't mean to take over your living room. When it launched in 2005, the Xbox 360 was just a device for games — "the Holy Grail of gaming," in the immortal words of MTV's Sway. It would...

Strong launch lineup ; "Snapping" video apps perfect for multitaskers ; Kinect voice commands can be powerful

Clunky TV integration ; Uninspired design ; Kinect voice commands are unreliable

The blueprints are all here

Microsoft Xbox One review

 

More powerful hardware, a flexible multimedia operating system, and functional voice commands via Kinect combine to firmly establish Microsoft's Xbox One within the next-gen.

The Xbox One is an outstanding step forward for Microsoft’s gaming brand, even if it’s not an entirely perfect machine at launch. That’s the beauty of the new Xbox though: It’s built to be flexible. This was the big lesson of the last hardware...

Xbox One S Review: More for Your Money

 

If you have an Xbox One and a 4K television, you’ll absolutely want to upgrade to the Xbox One S. You’re not getting more than better picture and a streamlined design. That’s ok.
