A new vision for the future was revealed today when Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One, an all-in-one gaming and entertainment system. The new system brings together games, TV, movies, music, sports and Skype.

“Xbox One is designed to deliver a whole new generation of blockbuster games, television and entertainment in a powerful, all-in-one device,” said Xbox exec Don Mattrick. “Our unique, modern architecture brings simplicity to the living room and, for the first time ever, the ability to instantly switch across your games and entertainment.”
Some other highlights from today’s announcement:
The new console is shaped in the 16:9 aspect ratio and employs a horizontal orientation optimized for its high-speed Blu-ray disc player. The Kinect is completely redesigned – it’s more precise, more responsive and more intuitive.
Xbox One will launch in markets around the world later this year.
