Microsoft took the wraps off the new Xbox One today, but we don't have many details other than how it looks. It's been completely redesigned, and the inside was gutted and reworked as well. There's some new Kinect sensor built right in as well.
Wired has a beautifully laid-out article with a bit of a closer look at the design.
Whatever we do know, it's sure more than what we know about the PS4. And it's no coincidence that they are both coming out at the same time. The long-time rivals both update their gaming console hardware every number of years with only minor updates in between. The cycle is about to begin again, but will the Xbox or PS4 take the edge?
Details about both devices are set to be released at E3 starting June 10th. Here is a wish list of features over on Hypable. In the meantime, you can pre-order it on Amazon, even though it has no set price yet, if you're that sure you'll want one.
UPDATE: Some more details have come out on Slash Gear:
Some key questions that many people have about the new Xbox One weren’t answered in the keynote during today’s unveiling, but Microsoft confirmed afterward some answers to a few issues. First off, the Xbox One will not be backwards compatible with Xbox 360 games, but the new console will support used games and won’t require an always-on internet connection.
