Hi everyone, today I'll explain in detail each next-gen console features for those blind gamers that don't see the deal the Wii U offers and preffer to buy a Xbone/Ps4 console instead (what kind of wrong decision!!). The Wii U has features that easily COUNTER those features, off course if you use them often or it really matters for you. Well here we go!!
- Instant switching : That means the console can switch instantaneously between games and apps (programs, tv, music, etc..). Or if you want do two things at the same time like playing a game while listen to the music or watch TV.
- Voice and gesture recognition: The classic Kinect features enhanced for XboxOne, those features allows you to control the XboxOne like turn on and off the console, switch between programs, and the crazy gestures to play your games.
- Integrated Skype: This program allows you to chat in real time with friends around the world, the console supports up to 3 chats at the same time and allows you to play a game while chat with friends with split screen.
-Exclusive apps: There are many apps you can use with XboxOne, but some are exclusive like the NFL that shows the latest statistics and games in real time. Also, the classic Movie, music, tv apps.
-DVR: This feature allows you to record and share with friends your gameplay (not so popular between gamers).
-HDMI passthrough: This feature allows you control your satellite/cable box connecting it to the XboxOne HDMI-IN port.
-Mobile devices interconnect: This feature uses the smartglass app to install into your smart phone or tablet, so you can use it to play a game or control your XboxOne.
-Enhanced Xbox Live Service: The same xbox360 features with a little bit better achievement system with personal scores updated all the time. (better, but costly).
-Bluray player: The XboxOne can play your favorite Blu-ray titles.
-Exclusive games: Very few games at lauch that Microsoft thinks will help increase the sales. (Bad strategy).
-Far better AI: This means that the XboxOne and games recognise the way you play, what you like most, what you dislike, and adjust your preferences accordingly.
Well, we'll continue with the Ps4 features tomorrow.
