Microsoft unveils new Xbox One console
Excerpt: " The new Xbox One is positioned to compete with other game devices, as well as with a growing number of Internet-connected TVs and gadgets in the living room that draw entertainment from a variety of sources.
'We very much think of Xbox as an all-in-one entertainment system that has the best of games and the best of entertainment,' said Yusuf Mehdi, senior vice president of marketing and strategy for the interactive entertainment division at Microsoft.
The Xbox One is designed to sit in between a cable or satellite set-top box and the TV so that it can bring together online and linear entertainment offerings into one easy-to-use interface.
As with a growing number of Internet-connected TVs and devices, the Xbox One will deliver a more personalized entertainment experience. Using an updated version of the Kinect controller, with its built-in camera and sensors, the next generation console can recognize the person sitting on the couch -- and serve up favorite games, TV shows and other content through a home 'dashboard.'
