Forbes: When Microsoft first announced the Xbox One back in 2013, the tech giant was pretty clear that this was meant to be a new kind of console. It was meant to play games, sure, but more importantly, it was meant to serve as the center of the any home entertainment system. That’s what the “One” means: this is the one device you need to tie your whole system together. “Input one,” read the cryptic banners at E3. Things didn’t exactly work out that way: the voice commands never worked as well as people wanted them to, the gesture commands were essentially nonfunctional, and Sony’s ascendant PS4 quickly stole the next-gen gaming spotlight. But at Gamescom, Microsoft finally announced that the Xbox One would be getting a DVR for live TV: a little reminder of the machine’s ambitions.
