The Xbox One media remote which was earlier leaked from Amazon’s listing, has been announced officially by Microsoft today. The Xbox One Media Remote will retail for $24.99 ERP in the US and will be available in stores around the world.
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 favorite TV shows and movies through the Xbox program guide.
Some select Xbox Live members are getting invitations to preview new features coming to Xbox One in the upcoming March system update and future system updates as they become available, asking them to provide valuable feedback before the updates are implemented worldwide.
Selected participants will receive a message over Xbox Live with a code to register. The next system update will begin rolling out next week to those who will preview the new features. Once registered, participants will be able to test the early features included in the update and provide feedback on a private forum and can opt out of future waves.
