Microsoft explained today at its "New Generation Revealed" event what you'll be getting when you pick up your shiny new Xbox One. On offer are USB 3.0 support, Wi-Fi Direct, a Blu-Ray drive, native 64-bit architecture, HDMI, and a 500 GB hard drive. The Windows kernel will be used to smooth the transition and enhance the hardware experience.

With 2 Gigabits of data processing per second, Microsoft promises "rocket-science level stuff." Overall, it's pretty impressive. Of course, we'll want games to go with all that power, but I have to say, the ability to near instantly switch apps is already enticing enough, compared to the sluggish UI of the Wii U.

I had terrible luck with my wireless adapter for the Xbox 360 gamepad -- damn thing was spotty at best, non-functional at worst -- so here's hoping these new ones are an improvement.more

Oh hey, this looks like the final Steam Controller

Weird as it might still look, you have to admit that Valve's Steam Controller has come far. Remember this photo? Or this more recent one? It's like leafing through your worst yearbooks. Given that I play PC-centric games with...more
