The amount of tech that has been pumped into the Xbox One is incredible, and we haven't even reached the games yet - this is impressive.


Microsoft's Xbox One features PC-like specs such as 8GB of RAM and the magic: 'Xbox architecture'

Microsoft have just unveiled their Xbox One, which features a 5 billion transistors. Specs-wise, we have 8GB of RAM, 500GB HDD, USB 3.0, Wi-Fi Direct, Blu-ray, 802.11n. Impressive, PC-like specs... what else do we have?

The Xbox One architecture is key: very easy access for developers to gain access to the hardware, the kernel of Windows, and what connects these two operating systems is something only Microsoft is capable of - which changes everything - the capabilities to switch between apps, games, and media is thanks to the built-in next-gen Kinect sensor. The Kinect camera captures 1080p video, finally.

The Xbox One is a true all-in-one multi-tasking console

The Xbox One will remember what you were last doing, with the entire console controllable by your voice. Saying 'watch TV' to your Xbox, bumps up live TV to your eyes. Not only that, you can use "Instant Switching", where you say "Xbox Game" and then "Go To TV" and then "Go To Music", followed by "Watch TV" and there are literally seconds between each new command. Impressive.

Will IllumiRoom illuminate today's Xbox event? Some sources say that it will

Despite rumors that Microsoft's new IllumiRoom is not ready for demo, we just might see the new technology make an appearance at today's Xbox event after all. Gaming site CVG is reporting that a demo will be shown off at the event that is scheduled to begin at 1PM today.

 

TweakTown image news/3/0/30492_1_will_illumiroom_illuminate_today_s_xbox_event_some_sources_say_that_it_will.png

 

IllumiRoom is Microsoft's next big thing in gaming. It appears to project an extended view of the game onto the surounding walls of the room your TV is in to provide a truly immersive experience. We saw this new feature being shown off at CES earlier this year, but rumors quickly surfaced saying that it would not make an official debut until Q4 this year at the earliest.

 

 

While we are still unsure if IllumiRoom will make an appearance today, we know for a fact that the new Xbox will be unveiled today and we will be providing up to the second coverage in the form of a Live Blog, as well as news posts as they happen. Stay tuned to TweakTown for all the Xbox news today!

The news comes from DigiTimes' sources in the upstream supply chain, who expect "Xbox orders to strongly boost their performances in the second half as the orders' profits will grow along with the volume".

We're nearly here - and yet, my excitement is continuing to build - the next-generation Xbox from Microsoft is to be unveiled mere hours from now. The entire news staff of TweakTown will be all over the Xbox event, covering it with a live blog and news posts.

 

TweakTown image news/3/0/30490_10_the_next_gen_xbox_event_happens_this_afternoon.jpg

 

The event kicks off at 1pm ET, so be sure to check back this afternoon for your next-gen Xbox details. What are you hoping to see? Here are some of our thoughts on the next-generation console from Microsoft, but I'd like to be totally surprised, and to see Microsoft go up and above the PS4 announcement with some incredible games and details on the console. Hopefully we get to actually see the console, not like the PS4 event.

The Last of Us will feature PS4's 'play while download' feature on the PS3

Naughty Dog are nearly ready to unveil The Last of Us to the world, a game that launches simultaneously on Blu-ray and as a download through PSN on June 14. If you choose the download method, then you can only play the game once it has downloaded 50%.

 

TweakTown image news/3/0/30485_05_the_last_of_us_will_feature_ps4_s_play_while_download_feature_on_the_ps3.jpg

 

The PlayStation 4 will have this feature, where it will allow you to play the games as you're downloading them. PS3 gamers will get a tease of this PS4 feature with The Last of Us, but the PS4's method will be far superior thanks to its dedicated hardware that is used for background downloading and processing.
