The Xbox One is the eighth generation video game console and the successor to the Xbox 360. It was officially revealed by Microsoft on May 21, 2013, and was released on November 22, 2013 in 13 countries  and globally in 2014.
- 8 Cores
- An 8-core x86 processor lets you instantly switch between a game and your entertainment apps with ease.
- HDMI Pass-Thru
- Connect your cable or satellite box to your Xbox One and prepare for lift off. HDMI pass-thru enables you to watch TV through your Xbox, which makes switching inputs seem almost pre-historic.
- Loaded with memory
- 8GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive give you plenty of memory for your games, demos, movies, apps, music, and more.
- Watch movies and play games in stunning HD with a Blu-ray player.

- Before the console was officially announced, the Xbox One was previously rumored to be called the Xbox 8 or Xbox Infinity, while most fans referred to the next console (pre-unveiling) as the Xbox 720.
- It was confirmed by Microsoft that the Xbox One will not be backwards compatible with either original Xbox or Xbox 360 games.
- Halo (Xbox One), the first Halo game to be released on the Xbox One, has been confirmed to be in development.
- A new Halo project was announced for the Xbox One at Microsoft's E3 2013 press conference, with a working title of "Halo". It is currently unknown whether the title in question is Halo 5 or not, though it appears extremely likely.
- Microsoft originally planned for the Xbox One to be an "always-online" console, in which the console could only go offline for 24 hours before having to connect to the Internet. The company has since backtracked on this policy, and how players can allow their friends to borrow their games. Now, the Xbox One will only be required to connect to the Internet once during the initial set-up of the console.
- The Xbox One will not be availible in 21 countries as planned on day one, with only 13 countries receiving it on launch. This is due to the lacking of language support.
- On August 12, 2013, Microsoft announced that the Kinect system will be optional and the Xbox One will be able to function without it.
