Today Microsoft has announced that they have now rebranded their Microsoft Xbox Live Marketplace as the Xbox Game Store, in preparation for the launch of the new next generation Xbox One console later this year.
The rebranding makes sense as now that the music and videos have been separated out into their own Xbox Video Store and Xbox Music Store it makes it clearer where the media is located.
The Microsoft Xbox One is priced at $499.99 in the US, £429.99 in the UK and 499.99 Euros throughout Europe and $599.99 AU in Australia although a launch date for the new console has still yet to be announced by Microsoft.
The Microsoft Xbox One is powered by a customised AMD Jaguar 8 core processor and will also feature a graphics processor that is tailored for Direct X 11. graphics and comes with 32MB of high bandwidth embedded ESRAM.
The 8GB of RAM on the Xbox one is DDR3, and will be capable of supporting full HD video in 1080p and the new 4k video, it will also offer full 7.1 surround sound support.
