Xbox One X vs PS4 Pro

Xbox One X vs PS4 Pro

Microsoft has revealed the "world's most powerful console", the Xbox One X.

The Xbox One X - which was code-named Project Scorpio - looks strikingly similar to its 4K-capable predecessor, the XBox One S. It's a bit smaller than other Xbox consoles but packs a much bigger punch.

The Xbox One X's biggest highlight is its support for 4K, while the console is also fully compatible with all previous Xbox One games and accessories.

Microsoft will release the Xbox One X on November 7 2017 with an RRP of $499.

The console, originally known as Project Scorpio, is set to rival Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro - which launched a year ago - as the flagship games console on the market.

The Xbox One X is an ergonomic masterpiece. Furthermore, with games such as Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, The Last of Us Part II, God Of War and Days Gone all announced, the PS4 is a shining example that exclusive games matter.

Both the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X represent a new era of mid-lifespan console upgrades.

The Forza showcase also shows that the Xbox One X can run an upgraded version of Xbox One 1080p game at native 4K; if that is possible across the board then it would be a boon for backwards compatibility with existing Xbox One titles. According to Xbox director of software engineering Kareem Choudhry, all Xbox games will enjoy enhanced visual fidelity and faster load times on the console.

The Xbox One X can play Ultra-HD Blu-ray disks, whereas the PS4 Pro can't play 4K Blu-rays.

At the core of the system is its support for ultra high-definition 4K gaming. However, the Xbox One X has to take the title for best design for the simple and elegant nature of the hardware combined the incredible advancements Microsoft has made since the initial Xbox One launch.

Of course, what Microsoft really could have done with was a major first-party exclusive to show off the power of the console.

I suppose this means that game makers will be able to charge for a 4K upgrade.

Games that provide 4K graphics will be noted by the "Xbox One Enhanced" branding, he said. When Microsoft is competing against Sony that has some of the best developers in the industry in the form of Naughty Dog, Sucker Punch and Guerrilla Games creating incredible experiences for the platform, it needs to have experiences that match and even surpass what's available on PlayStation. Market Analyst IHS Digital is predicting Xbox One X sales of 500k this year.
