The launch last week of the PS4 by Sony sure was fun and now we have another console releasing this week with the Xbox One by Microsoft. There are some things to be expected with the release of this new console.
One of the things is the price of the new system will retail for $499.99 in the United States when it debuts on November, 22 2013. The system will come with a 500GB hard drive, a new Kinect sensor, 4K rated HDMI cable, headset and the Xbox One wireless controller.
The video below shows everything that’s included with the Xbox One.
There will also be new features available when the console does launch. One of these features is being connected to the cloud. One benefit of being connected to the cloud is the system and games update automatically.
Another one is that games and entertainment are stored in the cloud, they can be accessed anytime, from any Xbox One. The next thing to expect is that with this new system it won’t be compatible with Xbox 360 games. One positive with the new system is that current Xbox Live Gold membership will carry over to the new console.
It seems that Microsoft is making a good console packed with features and some nice tricks that will please consumers. The launch line up for the Xbox One looks somewhat similar to the PS4, but there are some new arrivals including exclusives like Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5 and Killer Instinct.
So without further delay, here are the lists of both retail and download-only Xbox One games coming this week. One note is that some of the retail games may actually be available for purchase in stores before the console itself releases.
