Xbox One Media Remote Officially Launches in March

Last Updated: February 20, 2014

The rumored Xbox One Media Remote we told you about is now official—Microsoft revealed it today. It has a simple interface, with standard media and television controls along with Back and OneGuide buttons, so that you can use the Xbox program guide to quickly access your favorite movies and shows. Best of all, the buttons glow in the dark.


You’ll be able to use the media remote with Blu-ray movies, streamed videos, and your television/receiver. If you’re interested in getting one, you’ll be able to pick it up in March for $24.99.

The Xbox One has a strong media focus, and fans have generally reacted positively to this announcement. If you live where it’s too noisy to use the Kinect’s voice recognition, or if you just would prefer a remote, check it out.
