The second generation of Microsoft’s gaming consoles was the Xbox 360, a console that came with a ton of new features such as music streaming, Netflix, party chat, sports applications, and other features that were released as time went on. This made the Xbox 360 more user friendly, drawing people in with the new array of features. When I had my Xbox 360, I used the system more often then not for activities besides gaming such as chatting with friends that live in a different state to watching a movie and talking about it live rather then sifting through a message board or forum. The Xbox One is advertised as a console that the whole family can enjoy, and with Microsoft’s track record, I am sure they will not disappoint.
Video game systems are becoming far more then a one trick pony with the market demanding the company to farther innovate and add more features to make their purchase worthwhile. Only time will tell how diverse these multi-function systems will become.
