On 21st May 2013, at 6pm, Microsoft announced the next generation of Xbox – Xbox One.
A lot came out of that Call of Duty: Ghosts presentation! The graphics were better than ever, with the new engine producing more detail, dymanic shadows and so much more. Dynamic multiaplyer maps will offer earthquakes and trapdoors to change the environment, and even the little things, like better smoke and AI for fish as you swim past them! The story is even written by Oscar-winner Stephen Gaghan (Traffic, Syriana)!
All in all, Infinity Ward have promised us the best Call of Duty game ever, and after that trailer, it’s hard to argue!
EA’s biggest announcement was brief, but shocking – exclusive content for FIFA Ultimate Team, only on Xbox!
EA are developing four games for Xbox One – FIFA, Madden, UFC and NBA, powered by EA Sports Ignite.
A few choice tech specs – 8GB RAM, USB 3.0 connection, Blu-ray drive, Variable power states, Wi Fi and Silent Running!
The Xbox One Guide is the new way to watch TV. Voice controlled search navigation removes the need for finding the remote, favourites let you choose and pin your favourite shows to build your own channel. Trending lets you see what other people are watching the most, both in terms of live and on-demand TV.
New Motion Gestures let you navigate through the different programs instantly. And if you want to run more than one progrmam at once, Snap Mode lets you do this. Browse the net while watching TV and more, using your SmartPhone as a remote control!
With those two words, the Xbox One will turn on, not only with voice activation but voice recognition! It knows your voice and loads up your personal home page, complete with remembering what you were last doing… and was that Forza we saw? And quick voice controls to switch between live TV, gaming and more!

He reports: “It’s a wet and windy day in Seattle, so for all you people wishing you were here, you’re not missing any weather!
F1 car supremos McLaren revealled an interesting tidbit on their Facebook page: “Xbox is revealing something special. We think you might like what they’re announcing…” Our friends at IGN suggests this could be further evidence of a Forza announcement this evening. But it’s been a while since there was a Project Gotham Racing game.
Well, we can dream, can’t we?
3D Glasses? A new Kinect? These and other functions have all been created, at least in prototype form, for the next Xbox – at least according to The Wall Street Journal. That respected paper has published an interesting piece regarding Microsoft’s big announcement and how they may hope to compete with smartphones. Will any of these prototypes appear as part of the finished console this evening?
IGN are reporting that FIFA will be making their presence known at today’s reveal event. This comes from a tease on the FIFA Facebook Page that included the official #XboxReveal Hashtag.
FIFA has been making leaps and bounds in recent years anyway – just how good should we expect the next-gen version of virtual footie to be?
Less than 11 hours until the future of Xbox is revealed, are you excited yet? Make sure you are ready today at 6pm.
During Major Nelson’s latest podcast, Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment Chief Aaron Greenberg revealed that tomorrow’s big reveal is part one of a two stage event.
“The best way I can describe it is, we’re really going to tell one story across two events. So we’re going to start on the 21st [of May] and really that’s about revealing the next Xbox platform and our vision for the future of games, the future of entertainment. We definitely have a lot of surprises planned.
“People are going to get a great inside look at the making of the new platform and the team that brought it to life. To be honest it’s really about the team, the people here. We’ve never done this before, so it’s really exciting to be able to do that.
“It’s a lot of laying the foundation, and then just a couple weeks later we go to E3, and E3 is all about the games. It’s going to be tons of exclusives world premieres.”
Could the the first game from Respawn Entertainment appear exclusively on the new Xbox? According to Kotaku, the debut title from Respawn – the studio headed by Call of Duty creators Jason West and Vince Zampella – will only be coming to the new Xbox (and possibly Xbox 360). Little is known about this new game, but Kotaku have their theories on this, too.
Could this be the first big name to sign up to Xbox exclusivity?
Excitement isn’t the only thing building at Xbox HQ as the days countdown to the New Generation reveal.
Did you see the first trailer for Call of Duty: Ghosts? From the message at the end of the trailer, it looks like we know at least one thing we’ll be seeing at the New Generation Xbox Reveal – the new Call of Duty game, “live”!
