Microsoft: Xbox One for small businesses is a great investment

This might be on your work desk soon

You might think that having an Xbox One at work wouldn’t be the best idea when it comes to productivity, but Microsoft is trying to convince Small Business owners that picking up the company’s new console is a great investment.

While Microsoft views the Xbox One as “an excellent entertainment device” the company claims that the new console can be so much more. It argues that the Xbox platform is so robust and reliable that it can be a great option in terms of video conferencing and as a networking platform.

Skype, Skydrive, Internet Explorer and Smartglass are some of the apps that come with the Xbox One that could be valuable for SMBs. Microsoft explains that due to such baked in-apps, the ability to integrate with other Microsoft devices via Smartglass, and the possibility of future third party business dedicated apps make the Xbox One and its $499 price tag a great option for small businesses.

Now all you have to do is convince your boss that you need an Xbox for Skype, not for playing games.
