The Xbox One X: Initial Impressions

The Xbox One X: Initial Impressions

According to the U.S. technology firm the Xbox One X is the world's most powerful console with 40% more grunt than anything now on the market. And now it's responding. The company claims it is the most powerful console ever created due to its strong features.

Aiming at the hearts of gamers, Microsoft also showed off 42 coming games, with 22 of the titles being tailored for exclusive play on Xbox One consoles. It also has a liquid-cooled vapor chamber inside. The device, which had previously been known by its codename Project Scorpio, comes with faster components than its predecessors.

The system will also be backwards compatible and be able to play other Xbox games.

Microsoft ultimately lifted the restrictions, but the console failed to keep up with the success of PlayStation 4. "We are selling every single one we can make", Sony Interactive Entertainment worldwide studios chairman Shawn Layden said of PS4.

Microsoft announced Sunday it will launch a higher-powered version of its Xbox One video game console this holiday, as it attempts to catch up to the sales of Sony's rival PlayStation 4. Barring Forza Motorsport 7, there were no big AAA games from the company to prop up the Xbox One X at launch.

Although the Xbox One X will indeed outperform the PS4 Pro, Microsoft kind of lacked some major first-party AAA titles during its E3 2017 announcement. The PlayStation Pro with 4K gaming support went on sale last November, giving Sony a significant head start.

So I highly doubt people will try very hard to get their hands on a $499 console that offers better processing power and visuals over a $249 and even cheaper equivalent that has all the same features and games in nearly unrecognizably different quality.

We realize that while Nintendo Switch might not support 4K specs, it has that one thing, that one "it factor" that Xbox One X and PS4 Pro do not have. However what wasn't confirmed regarding the game was that whether it will run at "true 4K" resolution or a different rendering solution. PS4 consoles from the outset could power virtual reality, and Sony sells headgear for those experiences. Microsoft is even bringing Original Xbox game to the Xbox family, starting with Crimson Skies.
