Xbox One Media Remote Launching In March

Xbox One Media Remote Launching In March(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – The newest remote for Microsoft’s latest console, the Xbox One, will be launching in March, confirms the company via Xbox Wire.

The $24.99 Media Remote gives users the ability to control their video content from Blu-rays and streaming video from the Xbox One.

Also featured on the remote is the OneGuide button, an easy way to access TV shows and movies through the Xbox program guide.

Through the Kinect system, users can control power and volume for the television and receiver.

“The easy-to-use remote control has a familiar design with a soft, silicone finish that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. As soon as you pick up the remote, the motion-activated backlit buttons illuminate, allowing it to be used in the darkest of rooms while playing games, watching TV shows, movies and more.”
