XBox One – Media Remote To Be Released Early March

 

Xbox Wire have revealed the new Media remote control for Xbox One, which will be released in all regions in early March. The Xbox One Media Remote lets you control video playback for Blu-ray movies and streaming video on Xbox One. Additionally, there are dedicated Back and OneGuide buttons. The OneGuide button provides one-touch, quick access to your TV shows and movies through the Xbox program guide.

The Media Remote can also control TV/Receiver power and volume through Kinect, which uses IR blasting to send signals to your TV and/or 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.

The Xbox One Media Remote will retail for $24.99 ERP in the US and available in stores around the world. (Estimated retail price. Actual retail prices may vary.)

The Xbox 360 was no stranger to a few remote control’s for it’s DVD player and Media Centre, and if you thought the Xbox One had escaped its own remote control – think again! Amazon had listed an Xbox One Remote Control with an image stating a release date for March 2014.

It’s a minimalistic design and will retail for around $25.00, but considering you can control Xbox One functions with voice, gesture, smartglass and a controller – do you really need the remote control for your movies and music? Really?

If this floats your boat, we’ll keep you posted on a European release when Microsoft make any official announcements.
