REDMOND, Wash. - Microsoft thinks it has the one... The company has revealed the Xbox One, its next generation entertainment console.
The big reveal came during a presentation Tuesday at the Microsoft headquarters in Redmond.
It has been eight years since the launch of the Xbox 360. The original Xbox debuted in 2001, and its high-definition successor came out in 2005.
For the past two years, Microsoft has led the gaming industry in console sales with the Xbox 360, recently adding the ability to stream media apps and the family-friendly Kinect system.
Technical experts say the new console works with voice commands to switch between different applications.
No word yet on when the Xbox One will hit the shelves.
