Xbox

The holiday season is always big for entertainment. Lots of big movies come out, and video games, too.

The new entry in the Call of Duty series, Advanced Warfare, came out earlier this month. The series is best known for its multiplayer, but I really enjoyed the single player campaign. The story wasn’t overly complex, but it was compelling, not unlike a big Hollywood action movie. The appearance of Kevin Spacey as a villain in the vein of his character in "House of Cards" was a pleasant surprise.

A few months ago, I spoke about the upcoming PlayStation 4 console. I think there is a law about giving equal time to all sides, so this week I’m going to talk about the Xbox One, Microsoft's new console. It was unveiled Tuesday.

While the PlayStation 4’s focus is on games and the way we play them with our friends, Microsoft’s new console is firmly rooted in the living room and bills itself as the hub for all of your living room entertainment.
