Xbox One review

 

Xbox One is improving with every firmware update and first-party exclusive

Far better than it once was, and destined to keep improving, Xbox One is a truly modern piece of kit. It suffers for its catch-all approach a little, but you won't see some of its tricks on any competitor's machine.

Xbox One review

 

Considering what a success the Xbox 360 has become since its 2005 launch, with its groundbreaking network play and ever-growing media portal/hub functionality, the Xbox One's journey to shop shelves was surprisingly uncomfortable.

Kinect delivers a true next-gen interface; graphics are a bigger step up from the Xbox 360 than you might think; robust online platform

Key TV functionality currently limited outside US; currently no 3D playback, no USB multimedia playback and no memory management; Kinect makes it expensive

Xbox One review

 

The two factions of the next-gen console war have laid out their lines, Sony PlayStation 4 on one side, Microsoft Xbox One on the other. Only the lucky few, or very dedicated, will be able to afford both, continuing the gaming stand-off that's been...

Voice controls are comprehensive, games are incredibly smooth, Blu-ray player included, new controller design more refined, Kinect offers lots of clever features, turns your TV into a smarter TV, Skype experience is excellent, switching apps is smooth...

Gets hot, separate power brick needs accommodating, you need to have the console on to watch TV using pass-through, voice sometimes ignores you, parents will need to keep a closer eye on kids

The Xbox One marks the start of a new generation of entertainment, one that's centred around your big screen and one that wants to give you everything from gaming to music, to movies and more. It rolls in the internet, it brings apps and you get Skype...

The Microsoft Xbox One is the brand's bid to win the next-gen console wars

Robust internal specs ; Oodles of potential ; Improved controls

Hulking brute of a machine ; Lack of killer launch titles ; Eye-watering price tag

I think we'll look back at 2016 as a landmark year for console gaming – the year when manufacturers ditched the whole idea of console generations to follow a more straightforward, less risky smartphone-like release model where you no longer abandon...

Xbox One vs Xbox 360 console comparison review

 

The Xbox One is a stunning piece of engineering, a top-notch games console and home entertainment device. But don't write off the Xbox 360: it remains a good and cheap console. Here's our Xbox One vs Xbox 360 games console comparison review.

If you want the best then there is no contest: the Xbox One is faster and more powerful than its older brother. And it offers greater home-entertainment, connectivity and interface features. But if you want to save a few quid and buy a relatively...

Xbox One review - 18 months on, should you buy one?

 

Hugely improved since launch, now cheaper with some good exclusive titles and great multimedia capabilities

Microsoft Xbox One review

 

Almost the home entertainment hub we've been waiting for, but missing key features and still no killer exclusives

It's impossible to say how quickly competition will heat up between the next-gen rivals, forcing prices downwards or creating tempting bundle offers. You'd have to have plenty of faith in Microsoft delivering quickly on its multimedia promises, and be...

Xbox One is an imposing new entry to the range of digital entertainment gadgets and offers a glimpse of the future. While implementation leaves a lot to be desired at this early stage, many of the performance issues are likely to be software based and...

Microsoft Xbox One review

 

There's never been a more ambitious games console, but the Xbox One doesn't yet live up to its enormous potential [UPDATE: now with video]

Kinect is amazing in many ways Solid selection of exclusives at launch Multi-tasking and picture-in-picture

Flagship features fall short of their potential A big, inelegant box Some core titles still 720p

Hugely ambitious and with game-changing potential, the Xbox One just isn't quite there at launch
