The Xbox One has a game-centric operating system, too. But it also has a stripped-down version of Windows 8, designed to be more flexible and optimized for non-gaming applications like Skype and Hulu.

And consoles are stripped down PCs optimised to get everything out of their resources because there is only one configuration

Wow, is TC for real? It's like he didn't think about it for even half a second. He just instantly correlated some flamebait once he heard 'Windows 8'.

Well yes, they are now stripped down versions of a pc. The good news is with a stripped down version of Win 8 it should be easy to update. What I am seriously wondering is if an update gave us Win 8.1 and we don't even know it. MS isn't advertising Win 8 on the X1, I don't know why, I have it on my laptop and I like it.

The Xbox One can fit a ton of.channels into its 362ghz disk drive. That's why.
You belong on the blizz D3 forums, it was built for people like you. Like how some barns are built specifically to contain filthy animals.

Who is buying an Xbox One because it has Windows 8? Is that a selling point for a lot of people?
