There’s few things more exciting to the gaming community than the launch of a new console generation. I always harken back to being a little kid and finding a Super Nintendo waiting for me under the Christmas tree. That little box opened up an entire new world of possibilities for me: new kingdoms to save, princesses to rescue and Super Bowls to win. I’m pushing 30 now, and not much has changed. When I opened up the box for the Xbox One, I found myself absolutely giddy thinking about the possibilities that were waiting for me.
Microsoft has absolutely filled the Xbox One to the brim with features, and it’s a bit overwhelming at times. While there’s still a lot left to roll out, there’s a very strong argument that this box could be the new centerpiece of your living room in the years to come.
