Earlier this year Sony announced their Playstation 4 in a lackluster event that was low on the details. Don’t worry, though, Microsoft was apparently a little more prepared. Today in Seattle, Microsoft announced their successor to the highly popular Xbox 360 in the form of a newer, faster, quieter, and sleeker Xbox One console. The console looks to be way more integrated than anything we’ve seen in the past, including connections to Kinect, wi-fi, cable, and smartphone capability right out of the box. The console will not, however, require an internet collection, as previously thought, but will ship out with a Kinect included and run almost silently. No word yet on the release date (though it is highly assumed it will be out this year) or a price, but one can only assume it will cost a fair amount to snag one of these bad boys before they sell out.
