Visually, the Xbox One features a two-tone finish which combines matte and gloss accents. A Blu-ray slot and the traditional Xbox power button are located at the front of the box.
The new Xbox comes with a redesigned game controller. It features vibrating trigger buttons, redesigned d-pad and thumbsticks, which are shorter and have texture around their edge. The battery compartment has gotten smaller compared to the one of the predecessor.
The new Microsoft Kinect is a major improvement over its predecessor – it is also a focal point for the entire Xbox One experience. The new 1080p motion-sensing camera now offers voice commands and air gestures which complement the multitasking capabilities. The motion sensor is capable of processing two gigabits of data per second, which allow it to read the environment correctly. The Kinect can read up to six players simultaneously.
