The Xbox 360 has been rocking the market for 90 months – quite a long time for a game console to last – but many agree its high time for Microsoft to produce their next evolution of gaming technology. Enter Xbox One. This new integrated gaming console, which also acts as a computer, allows Skyping, and integrates television control, is all but sure to dominate its market for years to come.

The sheer amount of power infused into the console staggers in comparison to the 360. Its maker boasts that it will have 8 times the graphic performance of the 360, with a raw transistor count of 5 billion as compared to the previous 500 million and a memory upgrade from 512 MB to 8 GB. This requires careful airflow to keep it cool; and the system has been carefully designed to use a minimum of energy and not overheat. It also connects to Microsoft’s Azure cloud computer platform, giving it the ability, for instance, to process multiplayer games with up to 128 participants, over the previous 32. The cloud access will allow the games to take advantage of the incredible possibilities and performance that programmers can utilize by having processing tasks done in the cloud.

“It’s not like on day one, everyone will have figured out how to take advantage of that power,” said chief product officer Marc Whitten, as reported by Wired. “It’s just one of those stakes we’re placing.”

The system has the next stage of its Kinect sensor, which uses a 1080p camera with a 60 percent larger field then its earlier incarnation. Games that involve reading body movements will be much smoother flowing to play. It also uses voice activation that can control not only pausing the game, but with integration into your television, can take you to whatever television show you want, without having to use a television controller. “Xbox, watch CNN” will be sufficient for getting to the channel you want.

Such technology, when combined with Skype and streamed video, allow you to converse with friends, even while playing video games.

Since the Xbox simultaneously runs three separate operating systems, multitasking will be its strong point. With an internet, television, and gaming console as separate units, things got confusing, but integrating all of that into one interface is one of the selling points of the new Xbox One, which is destined, perhaps, to rule the market for a long time to come. It has integrated some of the intuitive logic of smartphones, the streaming of Skype, and allowed television to work through it: it promises to be a success in the market.
