Long-term test: Microsoft Xbox One review


Its most ambitious features still aren't perfect, but the updated Xbox One is now a great console

Solid line-up of games ; Kinect-less console is cheaper and more powerful ; Occasionally useful multi-tasking and picture-in-picture

Flagship features still have flaws ; A big, inelegant box

There are still niggles, but the newly Kinect-less Xbox One is a better, more focused games machine

Microsoft Xbox One: Will gamers want it?


Microsoft wants the Xbox One to be central to your living room and packed the new Xbox with such features as the ability to change TV channels through voice commands.

Xbox One X review


Xbox One X is a premium 4K HDR console with a storage issue

Native 4K HDR gaming ; 4K Blu-ray player built-in ; Improves 1080p experience

1TB HDD fills up fast ; Games aren’t always 60fps ; Skewed price-performance ratio

With a gaming PC's worth of graphical horsepower housed inside a deceivingly small package, the Xbox One X does what no console has done before: Native 4K HDR gaming. However, while games look absolutely stunning, with a fantastic level of detail...

Xbox One review


The original console is still worth considering

Excellent game selection ; Great online service ; The best controller going ; Unmatched media features ; Able to evolve constantly

Inferior graphics ; Confusing UI without Kinect ; Poor sharing options ; Ugly unit design

It might look big and bulky next to its slimmer version, the Xbox One S, but these days the older Xbox One can be found for some temptingly low prices. If you're willing to sacrifice the 4K functionality of the Xbox One S, then the Xbox One is still a...

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

Microsoft Xbox One


A worthy successor to the Xbox 360, and competitor in the modern console cold-war?

Beautiful graphics, great gameplay experience ; Subtly redesigned, extraordinarily comfortable controller ; Blu-ray disc playback ; HDMI input for pass-through from Freeview/Sky decoder ; Full web browser, YouTube support, Skype calling and other apps

Menu system is an awkward mix of 360 and Windows 8 ; Space-hungry, will not stand up on its end in ‘tower style ; Not compatible with Xbox 360 headsets ; Some features currently missing for NZ users (voice commands, EPG)

A suitable replacement for the Xbox 360, and one possible way to tie all your home entertainment together. The interface needs some work, though, and a future ‘slimmed down’ version would be very welcome.

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...

Xbox One review


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

Hands-On: Xbox One Review


Xbox One Review | With that in mind, I thought that it may be useful if we did put together a hands-on review of the Xbox One based on our experience from E3 2013 and the demos of the hardware and some games that we got behind closed doors.

If you are already committed to PS4, I don’t think that you will change your mind now. If you’re on the fence, think about whether or not Kinect and Microsoft exclusive games like Halo are critical for you. In the end, it really comes down to that.

Xbox One Kinect review


Numerous enhancements should improve the motion controller's functionality

Tracks a larger room area ; Gesture control is more versatile ; Better in uneven or no light ; improved video-chat

Kinect must be connected to console ; Not built into one ; Gesture control still a novelty to many ; "Xbox, go home" voice command
