Microsoft is announcing a new game console that it says will transform the way we play video games, including making it possible for fans to share and collaborate with other fans in the same way they do with one another.
In the coming months, Microsoft will begin selling a new Xbox Live Arcade console, which it says can stream video games and other digital content to the device.
It will also offer a new gaming service called XBLA for players to create their own games with friends.
The new Xbox console is named “Xbox One,” and it has a new design that is expected to be “much more appealing to gamers.”
It has an 8.9-inch screen with a resolution of 4K, and it will feature a 4K display and HDR.
Microsoft says it is the “worlds first full-featured game console” and “the worlds most powerful gaming platform.”
Microsoft is also introducing a new, more affordable version of its Windows 10 operating system that will be called “Windows 10 Mobile.”
The Xbox One has a “new form factor,” according to Microsoft, that “will make it even more portable,” with a 3.5-inch touchscreen that will allow for “up to three times the power of previous Xbox One consoles.”
The console will also be “designed to make games more accessible and easy to use for new and existing players alike.”
Microsoft says it has invested $1.5 billion in “GameWorks,” a partnership between Microsoft and Sony that allows developers to develop Xbox games for Windows 10.
Microsoft will also “develop exclusive, in-game content that will launch on the Xbox One console” as well as create and distribute “content for Xbox Live” for Xbox users.
Microsoft’s game-streaming service, called XBOX Live Arcade, will “bring gamers the ultimate multiplayer experience, featuring hundreds of millions of people who have never played a single-player game before.”
Microsoft also announced it is creating a dedicated app for its new game system called Xbox One Video.
The app will “stream video content from Microsoft’s games, with more than 1.4 billion streams from more than 2 million Xbox games,” according a Microsoft blog post.
“Xbox Video is designed for the widest variety of users, with an array of streaming options to help you experience games in a new way.”
The new console is expected “to change the way fans share and interact with oneanother and create a new type of entertainment experience that is uniquely tailored to their needs,” according Microsoft.
The company says the new Xbox will “deliver incredible entertainment to the living room,” including games like the “World of Warcraft” MMO, “Halo 5: Guardians” shooter, “FIFA 18,” “NBA Live 17” soccer game, “Rise of the Tomb Raider” and more.
Microsoft said that “the Xbox One will transform what fans can expect from their gaming experiences.”
