First Xbox One Commercial Focuses On Entertainment


The first Xbox One commercial focuses on voice control, Skype, and NFL streaming. The commercial opens with the “Xbox on!” power-on voice command and shows a football game of the Seattle Seahawks vs. the Dallas Cowboys. After showing a touchdown, it then showcases another voice command where the user says “Xbox, Skype…” and the name of the friend you wish to Skype with. Then the commercial continues on to replay the features.

It’s not entirely surprising that the first commercial released for the Xbox One focuses heavily on the entertainment aspect as opposed to showing some gaming features. Since the reveal in May, Microsoft has made sure to push the point that the Xbox One isn’t solely a gaming console; it’s an all-in-one entertainment hub. Given the heavy push for the console’s capabilities beyond just gaming, it makes sense that the first commercial would focus on these aspects.
