Microsoft officially unboxes Xbox One (video)

I guess Microsoft couldn’t wait until November, today Larry Hryb, Xbox LIVE’s Major Nelson, showed up in a new YouTube video unboxing the Xbox One game console.

The video simply titled “Unboxing Xbox One” features one of the first 20 units in existence. This particular bundled is also the so called “Xbox One Day” edition that includes a liquid black game console, of course, with a slot loading Blu-ray drive, a 500GB hard drive, IR blaster port, HDMI input and output connectors, a S/PDIF port, three USB 3.0, wireless and wired network support.

The HDMI Microsoft is shipping with the console is rated to support 4K resolutions and 3D (according to the HDMI 1.4 spec). The wireless adapter on Xbox One support A/B/G/N, also has dual-band 2.4ghz and 5ghz frequencies support. Microsoft says that the Xbox in the video has the graphics processor with the new 853mhz frequency, which has been bumped up from 800mhz for better gaming performance.

The bundled also include the power brick which still pretty big like the one in Xbox 360 (I just hope it doesn’t overheat and melt), a Xbox One controller branded “Day One 2013”, Kinect sensor, and a Xbox One Chat Headset. It is worth noting that Microsoft will include the headset on all Day One and standard edition of the game console. Something that the company has previously said will be sold separately, but with battle going on between Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft, it’s understandable that both companies are trying hard to convince gamers which console to buy next by adding some extras.

Larry Hryb also posted some close up images of Xbox One controller and the Chat Headset that you should definitely check out.
