With just two days to go before Microsoft launches its new next-generation Microsoft Xbox one console those lucky enough to be out to get their hands on the Xbox One next generation console before its launch have today started publishing reviews on the gaming console for us to ponder over.
The Microsoft Xbox One is powered by a customised AMD Jaguar 8 core processor is equipped with a graphics processor that is tailored for Direct X 11 graphics with 32MB of high bandwidth embedded ESRAM which is supported by 8GB of RAM that when combined offer support for full HD video in 1080p and the new Ultra HD 4k video standard.
Check out an Xbox One review round up below:
Eurogamer : “We usually end our hardware reviews with a verdict, but in truth, we simply haven’t had enough time to draw any definitive conclusions about the Xbox One ”
CVG : “Xbox One presents an attractive multimedia offering this Christmas. But for core gamers, Sony’s package is perhaps more attractive at the moment, with more visually impressive exclusives ”
Kotaku : “The Xbox One is trying some very cool new things, and it’s launching alongside some very fun games. But there are so many rough edges, and the software feels incomplete.”
The Verge : “The Xbox One is here for a decade. If Microsoft can deliver on all its promises in that time, it will have built a console truly worthy of Input One — but that’s a big if. ”
Polygon : “The Xbox One is an impressive marriage of software and hardware that raises the bar in terms of what we expect from a living-room machine. ”
Ars Technica : ” Xbox One offers about what you’d expect from a new Microsoft console: a big, heavy box (though quieter than you might expect), more impressive specs (though less than what you might expect after eight years), an improved controller (though still with a few odd oversights), and some good exclusive games”
CNET : “The Xbox One goes beyond gaming with its ambitious live TV integration, but at launch it can’t deliver a knockout blow to the PS4 due to a higher price and uneven voice control.”
The Xbox One games console launches on Friday November 22nd 2013 and 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.
