Xbox is the brand Microsoft has established for its game console. The brand also represents the device the company is set to put on every living room to play games, streaming services, and use the Xbox Live service. The first console was introduced on November 15, 2001, which the company simply called Xbox. Then on November 22, 2005, Microsoft released its second console generation, the Xbox 360. The successor is the Xbox One, which was introduced on November 22, 2013.

The company has introduced the Xbox One S, a new slimmer version of the Xbox One with support for 4K video and up to 2TB of storage. The console is set to release on August 31, 2016, and pricing starts at $299.

Along with the Xbox One S, at the E3 2016 game conference, Microsoft also announced the Xbox One X, a brand new more powerful console with 4K gaming support, rendering at 60Hz, 6 teraflops of GPU power, and more. Xbox One X is available starting November 7, 2017.

Xbox has now grown significantly and it’s no longer tight to the game console. Since November 12, 2015, the game console has been upgraded to Windows 10 bringing the experience closer together to PC and phones with the Xbox app for Windows 10 and the SmartGlass app available in different mobile platforms.
