Microsoft Reveals Xbox One Entertainment Console

Posted: Updated:

REDMOND, Wash. (AP) - Microsoft thinks it has the one.
    
The company says the Xbox One, its next-generation entertainment console, will go on sale later this year.
    
The company is seeking to stay ahead of rivals in announcing that new content that can be downloaded for the popular "Call of Duty" game will launch first on Xbox One.
    
Microsoft says more games will be shown at next month's E3 video game conference in Los Angeles.
    
Microsoft executives are also touting the Xbox One as a replacement for the set-top box from your cable provider. It has its own guide and you can change channels by voice command.
    
The announcement came Tuesday at a presentation at its headquarters in Redmond, Wash.

The company revealed the Xbox One, its next-generation entertainment console, during a presentation Tuesday at its headquarters in Redmond, Wash.
    
It's been eight years since the launch of the Xbox 360. The original Xbox debuted in 2001, and its high-definition successor premiered in 2005.
    
For the past two years, Microsoft has led the gaming industry in console sales with the Xbox 360.
    
In recent years, Microsoft expanded the scope of the Xbox 360 beyond just games, adding streaming media apps and the family-friendly Kinect system.
