The Xbox One is the successor to Microsoft's Xbox 360 video game console. It was officially unveiled on May 21, 2013. The system was released in North America and several European countries on November 22, 2013.
One of the first consoles of the eighth-generation era, it competes with both the PlayStation 4 and the Wii U. As it is built from a similar hardware base to the PS4, many game titles are released concurrently on both units. Unlike the PS4 or the Wii U, however, it does not run a custom UI, and instead runs a modification of Microsoft Windows as its main firmware. In so doing, the Xbox One has access to a library of "universalized" Windows application software as well as the ability to manage a virtual machine (VM) for games played on the system. Like the PS4, it offers the ability to record and stream live gameplay. Like the Wii U, it provides backward compatibility with its direct predecessor.
As with the Xbox 360, the Xbox One is supported online by Microsoft's Xbox Live suite of services. Some games' online features require a Gold subscription.
In the Fall of 2016, the Xbox One S was introduced. This version of the console competes directly with the PS4's Pro model in that it also supports emerging 4K Ultra HD (UHD) standards. A further enhanced variant, the Xbox One X, is due for release in the Fall of 2017.
Final Fantasy titles on Xbox OneEdit
- Final Fantasy XV
- Final Fantasy Type-0 HD
- Crystal Defenders (via Xbox 360 backwards compatibility)
A special-edition Xbox One console with Final Fantasy Type-0 artwork adorning the case and an Ace Play Arts mini-figure was offered in a December 2014 Square Enix drawing to players who preordered the game.
