Xbox One has been deemed both revolutionary and evolutionary by Popular Mechanics. The widely read magazine has heaped a ton of praise on Microsoft’s next console, deeming it one of the breakthrough products of 2013 in an online article for the publication. The list of the 10 breakthrough products of 2013 included the Pebble Watch, a low-cost 4K television, and a BMW electric car.
Developers have barely begun to grasp the possibilities
“Some products are evolutionary, others are revolutionary. The Xbox One is both. The most notable improvement is the new Kinect sensor, which is integral to the operation of the console. It can see in total darkness, track the fine movements of your hands and muscles, and even sense your heartbeat. Gamers may have taken issue with the Xbox One’s price ($500) and paywall restrictions (some features require a $50 per year subscription), but technologically it’s a huge upgrade from its predecessor. The platform is so advanced that developers have barely begun to grasp all its possibilities.”
We’ll see next month whether Microsoft starts a revolution with the Xbox One or not when the console arrives on November 22nd.
