The Xbox One is the third video game system in the Xbox family created by Microsoft. It was released on November 22, 2013, one week after the release of the Sony PlayStation 4, one of the two competitors to the system, with the other being the Wii U.
Used Game Controversy
Initially, Microsoft had put security features in place that would not let Xbox One games be played on more that one console, effectively eliminating used games. However, when Sony announced the PlayStation 4 would be able to play used games, Microsoft scrapped this plan.
The Xbox One launched on November 22, 2013 for $499. It also came with a Kinect camera. On June 9, 2014, Microsoft released another edition of the Xbox One without the Kinect camera, lowering the price to $399.
