Xbox One – For Sports Junkies

/ Nov 19th, 2013 No Comments

Xbox One Sports

When Microsoft announced the Xbox One, gamers were disappointed to see the company’s focus was not on games. It was a shock to hear about TV and sports rather than exclusive content such as a new Halo title. Now that the console is set to launch, Microsoft’s vision for Xbox One is much more clear. Gamers have a better sense on what Xbox One has to offer, which is the best way to experience sports.
 

It’s in the Games

[adsense250itp]What’s a game console without games? Of course, Xbox One will offer a full spectrum of sports games including Forza 5, Madden 25 and NBA 2K14. Each sports title looks better than ever thanks to the power of next-gen consoles. While Microsoft has no exclusive games in the works, the company has a close relationship with EA Sports.

Microsoft’s partnership with EA Sports will deliver exclusive content to FIFA 14 on Xbox One. Gamers will be able to obtain exclusive legendary players in the game’s Ultimate Team mode. The impact of Microsoft’s relationship with EA Sports has little affect on this year’s games but it will continue to grow in the future.
 

ESPN, NFL and TV on Xbox One

Microsoft is hoping to turn the Xbox One into the central hub of the living room. Some users will have little incentive to plug their cable box into the console, but sports fans will be able to watch live events in a whole new way. Sports fans can tune into games just as they would using their cable box. However, Xbox One gives users the ability to seamlessly transition to apps such as Watch ESPN and the NFL on Xbox One for the optimum viewing experience.

NFL on Xbox One

Xbox One is taking the concept of the second-screen experience and putting it all on a single screen. Instead of checking a phone or tablet for fantasy stats during NFL games, Xbox One owners will see a team stream of stats while watching live games. Fans can also perform a quick Bing search to find out the latest injury news on players such as Michael Vick without opening up their laptop. It is easy to see the functionality of Xbox One’s apps and live TV. There are truly endless possibilities.
 

Xbox One: The Deion Sanders of Consoles

Xbox One’s Snap Mode, which allows users to run two apps at the same time, makes the console a two-sport star. Users can “Snap” a secondary app on a small section to the right of the screen while the main app runs. There are a number of ways sports fans can advantage of this feature.

For example, you decide to play Madden 25 before NFL action starts Sunday morning. The game is headed to overtime but your favorite NFL team is about to take the field. Users can simply Snap live TV to finish up their game of Madden without missing the opening kick-off. Snap Mode essentially brings back the forgotten idea of picture-in-picture while integrating new technology.
 

Closing Comments

Microsoft built the Xbox One with sports fans in mind. The feature set and functionality with live TV make the console the premium device for watching live sporting events. With Xbox One, jocks will have all the information they need right in front of them.
