Microsoft's unveiling of its first new console in seven years has created plenty of buzz. Cool features like voice and gesture control over TV viewing could excite consumers, while the potential for establishing a foothold in the living room that beats Apple to the punch has many Microsoft investors salivating.
But key questions remain about the Xbox One. In the video below, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos highlights two of the biggest: (1) price, and (2) digital rights management.
Demitrios argues that, because the Xbox One comes bundled with the Kinect motion sensor, prices for the console could get too high for many consumers. And a tight digital rights management scheme that regulates the resale of used games might turn off gamers, the console's core audience. Altogether, the details on these two issues could make for a less-than-exciting launch for the device.
It's been a frustrating path for Microsoft investors, who've watched the company fail to capitalize on the incredible growth in mobile over the past decade. However, with the release of its own tablet, along with the widely anticipated Windows 8 operating system, the company is looking to make a splash in this booming market.
