The lights are on
Microsoft announced the Xbox One this morning, and revealed the first wave of system specs. The console includes 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a 500GB hard drive, slot loading Blu-ray drive, and more.
As you can see from the screengrab above, the system includes 8GB of system memory, a Blu-ray drive, and an 8-core CPU. Unlike the Xbox 360, which shipped in several different hardware configurations, the Xbox One includes Kinect and a 500GB hard drive by default. The console also has multiple 802.11n radios and an Gigabit Ethernet port.
Rumors about the hardware have been swirling around online for months, and it's nice to finally see something concrete.
