Shelly Palmer Radio Report – June 18, 2013

After first showing off the Xbox One back in May, Microsoft pulled back the curtain last week during E3 and filled in some more details – and showed off a ton of new games. Available this November for $499, the Xbox One is more than a way to play Halo and Gears of War: it’s also a set-top box that you can watch and record live TV on, a way to Skype with family and friends, and more. It comes loaded with a Blu-ray player, a 500 GB hard drive, and is bundled with a new and improved version of the Kinect, Microsoft’s motion and voice-controlled camera. Hardcore gamers are upset about the Xbox One, though, as it severely limits used games and requires daily internet check-ins. But if you’re looking for one box to rule them all – and replace most of your living room’s entertainment pieces with – look no further than the Xbox One. It’ll hit store shelves sometime in November for $499 and is available for pre-order now.
