At an event held at the company's Redmond, Washington campus, Microsoft unveiled the new Xbox One, their next generation video game console — although "game console" may be a bit of a misnomer.
The presentation focused largely on interacting with live TV and sporting events through the Xbox, playing up the Xbox One's role as a central entertainment system for the home. Features such as motion and voice controls for television watching and interacting with the user's media library were major focal points of the presentation.
