All of the video game consoles I have covered on this blog so far have been older systems. Today that changes, since I’m beginning a series of posts covering the Xbox One revision 1540 console that I purchased last October.
After the success of the Xbox 360 Microsoft was optimistic going into the launch of the Xbox One. They ended up making a lot of bad decisions that allowed the PlayStation 4 to outsell the Xbox One. At $499 the Xbox One was expensive. The focus was on it being an all in one media device, which people didn’t want. This of course mirrors the launch of the PlayStation 3 which focused a lot on media instead of games, and cost a lot more than the Xbox 360.
