Xbox go to Hulu Plus. Xbox go to Netflix. Xbox go to friends. Xbox go home. No, you're not drunk, but you're pretty freaking awesome.
Microsoft finally released a video providing a live look at the Xbox One in action. And while switching in between apps on-the-fly isn't quite as quick as shown in the promo video released last week, it's still pretty darn fast -- at least way faster than I originally thought.
Today, Microsoft revealed the first wave of TV and entertainment apps that will roll out on the Xbox One between November 22 at launch and spring 2014. They also showed the user interface in action in a video they released. Among the apps available in the United States are Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video and Twitch -- stalwarts of the video streaming business.
We're just a week away from the release of the PlayStation 4 and Sony is still throwing in added value. When you unbox your lovely next-gen console on November 15, you'll find three special promotion vouchers that give you a taste of some of the PS4 features.
