With Sony’s PS4 announcement in February and Microsoft’s Xbox One announcement last month, the once cold console war has begun to heat up! However, despite gamers’ anticipation for this holiday season, both press conferences left something to be desired. While Sony showcased games, neglecting the actual look of the PS4, Microsoft went the other way, demonstrating nearly everything the Xbox One could do aside from play games. Microsoft’s press conference also came with a few, downright confusing strings attached. So, being the gracious podcasters we are, we flop, face-first, into the pool of perplexing mystery that is the Xbox One.
