Xbox One

As the Xbox One draws closer we talked to a good friend and gamer(Zach Smalley) and asked him what he thinks about the new console. Here is what he said.

Innovation, reconstruction, and compatibility.The three leading words it seems for companies creating consoles. Lets work through those words and how they apply. So, Innovation; they will be bringing in new capabilities and maybe even adding things that aren’t realistic even though we’re technologically advanced. There was word of “4k Graphics”, which are supposedly around 4 times the quality of 1080p video. The average Hi-def TV show and live sport channel tops out at 720p and the same goes for video games. Not to mention 4k files are massive, the average movie of that quality rounds to about 100 gigs. Reconstruction: With hardware upgrades and switch-outs, there will be pros and cons. The Blu-ray player will be a definite pro, as for a con, the only visual output will be HDMI. Eliminating Component and analog. It’s┬ádrastic compared with the PlayStation 4 which will still have the analog and component video options. Compatibility and all its controversy have been covered quite a bit. I will leave you to draw your own conclusions with that.
