News: New Xbox Revealed - Xbox One

Today, Microsoft revealed their new console, officially called Xbox One, at a press event.  The information presented is by turns illuminating and frustrating.  Some basic system information has been released about the console itself: an eight-core processor with 8GB RAM, built-in Wi-Fi, a 500GB hard drive, and an integrated Kinect with a 1080p camera.  The actual release date has not been announced, however, with Microsoft promising the console "later this year."  More information will be revealed at E3 in a few weeks.

Correction: The Kinect is a separate unit, but the intimation is that each Xbox One will be paired with a Kinect.  Further clarification on this will likely be forthcoming.
