Say goodbye to the gaming console as you know it.
The days of "Duck Hunt" and "Super Mario Brothers" on your original Nintendo Entertainment System have been supplanted nearly 30 years later with the intense, amazing Xbox One, the sequel of sorts to the highly popular and renowned original Xbox.
This gaming console feels like the smart phone of video games, with tremendous amounts of versatility for something originally conceived to just play video games.
To say it is functional is like saying your smart phone is great for making phone calls. The Xbox One comes equipped with voice activated controls and a myriad of applications that make playing a game just as easy as surfing the internet or finding your favorite television show. In essence, your entertainment wants and needs finally has a nucleus to an extent, a sole console that controls a majority of what you're doing when your television is on.
Xbox One didn't come to their grand opening party alone, of course. They've got some pretty powerful partners flanked on each proverbial arm as part of their unveiling.
Perhaps none of those is quite as powerful as Verizon Fios, the only television provider to be featured as an exclusive application on the Xbox One. Customers of Fios find themselves in quite the enviable position if they choose to buy an Xbox One. Not only do they have a pristine, premiere gaming console at their beckon call but also can enjoy live feed television from Verizon Fios through an HDMI feed. The pairing of Verizon Fios and Xbox One feels like it was born out of necessity for one another, rather than an "Odd Couple" like pairing. Verizon Fios is a fabulous cable television entity that employs vision with its features and the kind of variety and speed that consumers can't help but fall in love with when opting to choose them in a highly competitive arena. Not only is Verizon Fios a major force in the cable marketplace but often usurp its comparable foes with pricing and service that stands head and shoulders ahead of everyone else.
It's only natural that Verizon Fios find a home within the walls of the Xbox One, which arguably is attaining headlines for more than just a sleek design and popularity simply because it is new. Xbox One ironically deserves the "one" moniker given its penchant for positioning itself in the game market as the premiere player, much the same way Verizon Fios is doing in its own field.
Changing the game is nothing new to the brains behind the brawn that is Xbox One or the persons responsible for putting together in the ins and outs of Verizon Fios. Matching these two marvelous powerhouses under one proverbial roof is a team that looks on paper to be nothing short of unbeatable.
