Microsoft has revealed the new Xbox One! The console has instant switching which allows you to instantly switch between games, movies, music, web, Skype and live TV.

It is powered by 8GB RAM, an 8-core CPU, a 500GB hard drive, a Blu-ray drive, both HDMI in and out and a USB 3.0 port.

Plus there is a redesigned Kinect which sports a 1080p camera for better data streaming to the console faster and a wider field of view.  It can track more of your body’s joints for better motion capture. Plus it gives you a full 1080P Skype experience with support for multi-location calls.

The new controller has an integrated battery compartment, integrated Wi-Fi, “impulse” force-feedback triggers and a new directional pad.

There’s interactive layering of data over TV programming, so when you’re watching a basketball game on ESPN, you can pull up your fantasy league right on the screen. There’s an interactive guide for live TV, which is fully voice controllable.

EA’s Madden NFL, FIFA, NBA LIVE and UFC are all coming to the Xbox One this year. Microsoft Studios announced that Forza Motorsport 5 is coming and that the company will release 15 new games in the first year of launch of which 8 are new franchises. Remedy revealed footage from a new game titled Quantum Break.

Also announced was a live-action Halo TV series coming from 343 Industries and Steven Spielberg.

Microsoft has also made a deal with the NFL for custom football media and news.

The show ended with a demo by Activision of the graphically superior Call of Duty: Ghosts just for Xbox One.

Ghosts is built on an entirely new engine. Stephen Gaghan, director of Syriana, wrote the story. Players take the role of underdogs fighting against superior forces as some mass event cripples the US military. So Ghosts focuses on guerrilla fighting and street warfare.

“This will be the most beautiful Call of Duty game we’ve ever made,” Activison Publishing CEO Eric Hirhberg said. The title will feature 60 fps and low latency controls in the hopes of creating a “great feeling game.”

Plus it features the dogs of war in more detail than past games!
