More fun. All in One.
Play games together with your friends on a network powered by over 300,000 servers for maximum performance. Find new challengers who fit your skill and style with Smart Match, which uses intelligent algorithms to bring the right players together. Turn your best game moments into personalized movies that you can share with friends, or broadcast your gameplay live. You can also switch quickly to apps, and connect with family and friends with Skype in HD (Kinect sensor required, sold separately). Or do two things at once by snapping a game, live TV, a movie, or apps side-by-side.**
Xbox One console
Xbox One was designed for today's fast-paced lifestyle. Downloads and updates happen behind the scenes, so you can jump right in. And when you need to pause, your games are suspended right where you left off, so you can resume instantly.
Xbox One wireless controller
The Xbox wireless gaming controller just got better with over 40 technology innovations. New Impulse Triggers deliver precise fingertip feedback for more realistic experiences. Kinect will auto-pair your controller instantly, even when you hand it to a friend during a game. The thumbsticks, D-pad, and controls have been streamlined for improved precision and comfort in your hands.
Xbox One Chat Headset
Keep your in-game communications crisp with the Xbox One Chat Headset. Hear friends and foes in crystal-clear digital audio. The Chat Headset is designed for comfort during long gaming sessions. Plus, you can adjust the mute and volume settings without taking your hands off of the controller.
Welcome to a new generation of games and entertainment. Where games push the boundaries of realism. And television obeys your every command. Where listening to music while playing a game is a snap. And you can jump from TV to movies to music to a game in an instant. Where your experience is custom-tailored to you. And the entertainment you love is all in one place. Welcome to the all-in-one, Xbox One.
Games plus entertainment
With the best games, TV, movies, music, and sports all in one place, you don’t have to compromise. Switch instantly from one to another, or enjoy two at once, so you never miss a moment. And talk with family and friends on Skype while watching TV (Kinect sensor required, sold separately).
The best games
Xbox One was built by gamers, for gamers. The perfect balance of power and performance, Xbox One takes gaming to a whole new level. Stunning realism. Advanced AI that adapts to the way you play. And a new generation of multiplayer that is both smarter and faster. Xbox One is simply the best gaming console we’ve ever made.
Do two things at once
Why choose between two things you love when you can do both at the same time? Xbox One lets you quickly jump from TV to a movie to a game. And then snap them side by side to do two things simultaneously. Music and games. Skype voice calls and live sports. Split your screen, not your time.
Built for the future
Xbox One is designed to get better over time with new experiences being added via free updates. Advances in cloud technology, innovation in controller design, and a significantly more powerful Kinect (sold separately) make Xbox One more fun today, and ready for the games and entertainment of tomorrow.
8-core x86 processor lets you instantly switch between a game and your favorite entertainment apps with ease.
Connect your cable or satellite box and watch TV through your Xbox One, which makes switching inputs seem almost pre-historic.**
8GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive give you plenty of memory for your games, demos, movies, apps, music, and more.***
Watch movies and play games in crystal-clear HD with the Xbox One's Blu-ray capabilities.
