Xbox One is the third gaming console from Microsoft and the first since Xbox 360 debuted in 2005.

Xbox One released on Nov. 22, 2013 in most markets at a price of $499.99.

Aside from gaming, the console boasts entertainment and utility applications such as Skype and live TV. Microsoft formed partnerships with various companies, including ESPN and the NFL, in preparation for the console’s launch. The system’s Snap Mode allows users to run multiple apps at one time and seamlessly transition between tasks.

At launch, Microsoft released exclusive titles Forza Motorsport 5, Dead Rising 3 and a new Roman-inspired franchise Ryse. Microsoft also inked a deal with EA to release the highly-anticipated first-person shooter Titanfall as an Xbox One exclusive. Of course, the company also has the exclusive rights to the Halo and Gears of War franchises. While no Halo game was planned for the console’s launch, Microsoft announced a deal with Steven Spielberg to develop a Halo live-action series that would only be available to watch on Xbox One.
