Xbox One Game Reviews

Welcome to the official hub of all Xbox One game reviews. After years of intense rumors, Microsoft officially announced the Xbox One on May 21, 2013 at an event held at the company’s Seattle campus. The successor to the Xbox 360 was given its named based on Microsoft’s intention to make the console an “all-in-one” entertainment system for gaming, entertainment and apps. 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. The latest version of the Kinect peripheral is included with the console along with a new controller with more than 40 enhancements over the Xbox 360 controller. The new 1080p camera Kinect includes better sensors for both motion and voice controls. Xbox One is equipped with a Blu-ray disc drive, 500 GB hard drive, 8 GB DDR3 memory and custom 1.75 GHz AMD 8-core APU. It has three USB 3.0 ports and one HDMI port.

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.
