xbox_one_specs

Earlier today, Microsoft revealed it’s next generation Xbox One. Surprisingly Xbox One specs are very similar to Sony PS4, both using an eight core CPU, 8GB of RAM, and combo Blu-Ray and DVD drive. However, there are some major differences as well: Microsoft has developed its own CPU chip for the Xbox One. Pricing for both Xbox One and PS4 haven’t been announced yet, but both will be available close to the end of the year.
