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.

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.

Powerful OS is user-friendly and built for seamless multitasking ; Kinect v2's well-implemented voice recognition is a new "button" for your controller ; Improved internal hardware translates to smooth game performance ; Cable box interconnectivity is...

Limited, occasionally non-intuitive voice commands ; Bulky, hefty form factor ; Snap same-screen multitasking is debatably useful

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 review: Much improved, has hit its stride (updated for holiday 2015)

 

It's still not our go-to game console, but Microsoft has significantly improved the Xbox One.

Microsoft's Xbox One offers impressive graphics and a solid list of exclusive 2015 titles. The Microsoft console currently edges ahead of the PS4 with a better selection of media apps. The console's fall-2015 dashboard update is a noticeable...

The Xbox One's new interface is still more convoluted than the PS4's. In general, the PS4 delivers slightly better installation times, graphics and performance on cross-platform games. The Xbox One also lags behind the PS4 in its selection of indie...

While the PS4 remains our overall preferred choice in the game console race, the Xbox One's significant course corrections and solid exclusives make it a compelling alternative.

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

Xbox One X Review [UPDATE]

 

Microsoft is winning the media war with Sony here in late 2017. Just as the holiday season rolls up here in 2017, it almost feels as though Microsoft's Xbox is the only competitor in their class. The PlayStation 4 Pro is already on the market, but it's...

High quality console performance ; Form factor smaller and more slick than predecessors ; Backwards compatible with a wide variety of games ; Compatible with previous Xbox One controllers, accessories, etc ; 4K UHD and HDR10 in full effect

Only comes in black (at launch) ; Power button remains unrepentantly attractive to toddler fingers ; Controller should come with rechargeable batteries ; Self-repair voids any/all hardware warranty

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 ; The Xbox One is an impressive piece of tech with the potential to redefine the home video game...

The Xbox One is an impressive piece of tech with the potential to redefine the home video game console, but it needs a number of refinements to make that a reality.
