BOX OF TRICKS. Avid gamers rejoice! This holiday season, embrace the latest gaming phenomenon: Xbox One.

An all-in-one entertainment system brought by Microsoft, this game console delivers more than just a fun gaming experience. It has sophisticated features including Kinect (movement recognition), online gaming, and gameplay video recording and sharing. Nongamers may alternatively enjoy other functions it serves, such as a built-in Skype application, live TV programming (supported with voice commands), and cloud computing. Xbox One, as a matter of fact, has been deemed as a competitor for modern TV network devices, namely Apple TV and Google TV.
