Marc Whitten and Yusuf Mehdi demo the Xbox One’s operating system

Xbox One is just two weeks away!  I know, get excited.  Microsoft has released a video featuring the Xbox One’s OS live, and all the amazing features it offers.  Microsoft’s Marc Whitten and Yusuf Mehdi run the demo, which features Kinect recognizing faces, Skype in your living room, the Xbox Upload studio, and just how quickly you can swap between apps.  One conspicuously absent feature was the snap ability, which has been rumored to cause issues with the OS.

I have to say, I’m overall really impressed by what the Xbox One can do.  Granted, I hope Microsoft will continue to focus on the gaming aspects of the console, but many of these entertainment features seem like very good additions.
