Microsoft Considers Slimmed Down Xbox One to Rival Apple TV

Posted by · 11857 views · Translate

Microsoft is considering the release of a slimmed down Xbox One to rival the new Apple TV, reports Brad Sams at Petri IT Knowledgebase.

I have heard from internal sources that the company is considering plans for a lightweight Xbox One that may only be for Windows store games and would compete with the Apple TV, but it’s not clear if these plans have been scrapped. A similar device was rumored around the initial Xbox One launch and those plans were put on hold but this device is said to be from a similar vein. If this device does materialize, it will not launch until the second half of the year and have a much lower price-point than the Xbox One.

The move seems logical as the new Apple TV has generated a lot of excitement among developers and customers. It's cheaper, smaller, and can now run variety of games and applications.

While the Xbox One is appealing to gamers, a slimmed down version would have mass appeal and may help Microsoft in the battle for the living room.

Does the Xbox 360 thin truly have an updated processor thus with the consolidated 250Gb memory it genuinely is a great deal speedier than the world class, in light of the fact that i'm considering purchasing one, if its not so much quicker then I won't get one.

So technically they're making the same thing people could've bought for saving all the extra space as a game condo,Es that's competitions against Apple TV. Not only is that corny, but it's no surprise they didn't do much in mobile markets. What can we expect here?
