According to Whitten, the Xbox One has 5 Billion Transistors, 8 GB of RAM and a 500 GB HDD. But that’s not all – it’s architecture is 64-bit, with a Blu-ray drive and various power states. It also comes with built-in Wi-Fi and can operate silently if need be.
Kinect has also been significantly powered up with a 1080p field of view, reportedly making it more powerful than ever. Microsoft is touting this as “offering human control for a human experience”.
Scary or the future? You decide. Thus far, it’s all been about Kinect and the design for the Xbox One which looks pretty bulky and awful.
