Following the high profile debut of the Xbox One at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, Microsoft Australia recently showcased the console at a media event in Sydney.

The console on display in the photos has the final hardware, though the operating system and dashboard are currently being tweaked by Microsoft leading up to the launch.

The classic fighting series Killer Instinct was playable, bringing the long dormant franchise into the modern age with a graphical upgrade and free-to-play distribution model.

Forza Motorsport 5 was also shown, adding a whole new level of detail to the immersive driving experience the series is known for.

Capcom's zombie survival title, Dead Rising 3, was playable on the floor, with more interactive items and characters on-screen than in past installments.

In the casual space, the rock climbing mini game from Kinect Sports Rivals was on hand to demonstrate the improved capabilities of the Kinect sensor.

Xbox One, as well as the above titles, will be available in Australia on 22 November.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
