Cleveland - yesterday Microsoft unveiled it's new gaming system, the Xbox One. It is much more than a gaming system actually. We've been watching these consoles morph into a hybrid content provider over the past few years. The Xbox One is the next step.
After looking over the hype of the product on the Microsoft link above let's read some in depth analysis shall we. Here's The New York Times weighing in on the competition around the corner, Next Xbox Will Face New Array of Rivals.
Finally, Wired predicts how the Xbox One will take on internet television and the Playstation, How Xbox One Plans to Fight Sony, Steam, and Everything Else.
It'll be interesting to see how the consumer market will react. Unlike Apple TV which runs $99, the Xbox One costs hundreds of dollars. Sure, it does more than stream content but can a gaming device become the focal point of a home theater? Especially considering you can buy cheap apps and game on an iPad while many hardcore gamers are going to PC-based gaming platforms for faster speed.
