article imageVideo: Xbox One's 'Ultimate Realism' trailer

The latest pre-launch trailer released by Microsoft boasts about its Xbox One next-generation console as the epitome of "ultimate realism."
Microsoft has launched a new online trailer in preparation for its Xbox One next-generation console launch on November 22. The theme of this trailer, without any spoken words, focuses on “ultimate realism.” It is cloud-powered and it can be both personalized & tailored to your liking. The trailer boasts cinematics that rival Hollywood. Then, it talks about “unrivaled multiplayer,” movies, live TV, live music, and sports. In short, like Sony with its Playstation 4 next-generation console, Microsoft is touting its Xbox One as both a game console and an all-in-one entertainment machine. With respects to entertainment, as Digital Journal reports, Microsoft has plans to release entertainment apps on launch day.
That's not the only video that Microsoft has released. It has also released a brief 30-second commercial on YouTube called “Xbox One: His and Hers.” Utilizing the Kinect, the Xbox One console detects who is sitting on the TV. By voice, you can request your personal dashboard. The boyfriend is using the Xbox One to watch soccer while the girlfriend interrupts and requests the console to show her dashboard; from there, she plays “Dead Rising 3” which is one of the many Xbox One launch titles.
The Xbox One console will be priced at $500.
Right now, as reported by Gamespot and Gametsu, many launch titles are going “gold” and are being shipped off to manufacturers for mass production before getting shipped to retailers. A recent IGN article reports on the install sizes for the launch titles. The largest game file is Call of Duty: Ghosts at 39GB. The smallest is Xbox Fitness at 246MB. Anticipated games like Killer Instinct, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Forza Motorsport, and Dead Rising 3 respectively have the file sizes of 3.4GB, 20GB, 31GB, and 19GB.
Gamespot also reports that BBC is working on its BBC iPlayer app for the Xbox One console. However, it will not be available on Xbox One's launch day. BBC lovers can anticipate being able to watch quality BBC content on Xbox One in the near future.
An analysis, reported by Gamespot, says that Xbox One's entertainment capabilities keeps Microsoft ahead of Google and Apple.
However, there are some downsides to the Xbox One. As Digital Journal already reported, those that buy the Xbox One will have to install the “day one update.” At launch, Xbox One consoles will be unable to play Blu-Ray discs. In short, Xbox One doesn't support that format, but Microsoft is keeping an “open mind” about it.
If you were one of those people that got the console early, due to a slip-up by Target, you will not be able to connect to Xbox Live until it gets near the November 22 launch date. Target said that a “systems error” was responsible for the slip-up.
