Microsoft is continuing its quest to take over your living room with the introduction of its new console — Xbox One.

The system replaces the Xbox 360 and will be battling Sony’s PlayStation 4 this holiday season for consumers’ cash. The price has yet to be announced.

Aside from cutting-edge video game technology, the new system will up Microsoft’s push into on-demand movie and TV programming, improved Internet functions, including Skype video-calling and the ability to control live TV. It will also seek to capitalize the growing acceptance of smart TV and social TV applications that allow viewers to comment online while viewing.
