Great Christmas Gift Series: Xbox One

Welcome to the newest DealDash series – “Great Christmas Gifts.” If you’re a person who struggles every year trying to think of gifts to get your family and friends, this series is for YOU!

The Xbox One is made by Microsoft, and it’s one of the most popular gaming systems available right now. There are a huge amount of games that can be played on this game system, from children to teens to adults.

If you have a person in your life who loves video games and currently owns an Xbox 360 you might want to consider giving them an upgrade to the Xbox One for Christmas this year. The best news about upgrading someone who already owns an Xbox 360 is that the Xbox One is backwards compatible, meaning that if someone already has an Xbox membership, and either digital or disc based games they are in luck, because they will work with the Xbox One.

If you’re shopping for a couple and the guy is really into video games and the lady not so much – not to worry, they can both enjoy the Xbox One, because even though it’s more known for it’s awesome games, you can also download apps onto your Xbox One, as well as watch internet-based TV such as Netflix or Hulu through the Xbox one, no computer needed. If you’re wondering how that works, it’s pretty simple. The Xbox One runs on three operating systems: the Xbox One system, a Windows 8 kernel, and a third operating system made by Microsoft to act as glue between the two main operating systems. This helps aid you in being able to switch between games, TV, the web,  and any other apps that you might end up downloading.

The Xbox One has a really cool voice recognition system that powers the console. This makes it easy for the Xbox’s owner to give the Xbox One voice commands like as ‘Xbox on,’ or ‘Xbox, TV’. The Xbox One also has a new built-in Kinect, so the Xbox One can also be controlled with gestures, like a wave of the hand, or by grabbing and dragging things.

The new Kinect that’s built in has a 1080p camera and can also recognize different people by identifying their faces. It syncs and stores this information with this person’s Gamertag and Xbox Live account if they would like to sign on to a friend’s console. This means that if several people are gaming on one console which has all of their information stored, the camera on the Kinect is able to identify which player is holding the controller in order to do things such as update a game’s scores. Pretty cool, huh?

If you are thinking of getting someone (even yourself!) an Xbox One for Christmas, why don’t you head on over to DealDash and see what auctions are currently running? There are almost always Xbox One auctions running, be it a game or an accessory. Now get out there and find some great auctions! Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
