Introducing the Xbox One 500GB. Where the best games, multiplayer, and your favorite movies, music, sports, and live TV come together in one place.
The Xbox One games look and feel incredibly real, with cinematic gameplay that rivals Hollywood. Watch TV or chat with friends on Skype while you play, and keep on playing while smarter matchmaking happens behind the scenes.
With the Xbox One, you can snap two things side-by-side on your TV, and switch from one to another instantly. Cloud-powered and built for the digital age.
The Xbox One delivers an all-new gaming and entertainment experience that will transform how you play. This brings together the best games, the most reliable service, and a rich entertainment all-in-one system that is built for today and tomorrow.
It remains a powerful console, and the addition of many compelling cross-platform and exclusive games, along with some price reductions and bundle offers, make it an even more appealing purchase.
The best multiplayer and service
Better matchmaking with Smart Match. No jerks – reputation system helps keep annoying players out of your games. No waiting in lobbies – play, watch TV, or surf the web while matchmaking happens.
Games plus entertainment
Never miss a moment – get multiplayer alerts while you watch TV. Switch instantly from a game to TV, a movie, music, and more. Snap an app next to a game and do two things at once.
Built for the future
The Digital System – built for the digital age using the latest technology and the power of the cloud. Keeps getting better – “cloud-powered” means the Xbox One and games grow with you over time. Advanced voice and motion control open up new game experiences like never before.
Play Xbox One games online or offline
Your Xbox One does not need to be connected for you to enjoy the offline features of games. In fact, you can take the Xbox One anywhere and play any disc-based Xbox One game on it. The only times you need an online connection are for the initial set-up of the Xbox One, and to get the latest system and title updates before you start playing some games.
You control your privacy
You decide how personalized Xbox One is to you and your family, including privacy settings, manual or automatic sign-in, and how data is used. And when you play games or enjoy apps that use sensitive personal data, such as videos, photos, and facial expressions, no one except you can access it, without your express permission.
Your Gamertag and Gamerscore follow you to Xbox One
No need to worry, you can bring your Xbox Live Gamertag and Gamerscore with you to Xbox One. Your Gamerscore will be automatically updated once you have connected to Xbox Live.
