Xbox One has been announced as Microsoft’s next console and will rival the PlayStation 4 when it's released world-wide later this year.

"You and your TV are going to have a relationship", said Microsoft at the Xbox reveal event live from the Xbox Campus in Redmond.

Speaking to a packed crowd at the home of Xbox, Don Mattrick revealed the cloud-powered Xbox One, describing it as a home entertainment system for core and casual gamers, music, sports and movie fans.

They’ll be no more need to log on manually thanks to voice-recognition and users will have the ability to call out commands in order to watch T.V and switch between music, gaming and T.V seamlessly.

They'll also be no fewer than eight brand new franchises within 12 months and 15 console exclusives. Let's hope Sony can top that!

We’ll have more details as they land.
