Vic chats with Aaron Greenberg about the Xbox One X and what it provides over its competition. Thank you for SHARING and SUBSCRIBING!
If you don't see a Reason by now just skip it
Other than 4k, what other reason have they given?
Honestly, i wouldn't believe a word out of that guys mouth, for me, he embodies everything that is wrong with MS and how they conduct themselves.
https://youtu.be/0wFFfeVpMo... skip to 21:34 and watch till 41:10 or keep going up to you but I found more reasons than just 4k
It's certainly not games.
4k is simply a resolution and it's not graphics. it's simply a visual enhancement for clarity. the xbox one x has a lot of power to make games graphically better than any console on the market. this will entice devs to want to use this console to showcase their games and being that it's the easiest console to develop for, they will use the xbox one x as their leading console to program for.
I doubt that. they'll choose the platform they feel will sell the most copies as their primary. Why make sure your X1X version is the one that runs perfectly when that'll only account for such a small percentage of the people that bought your game?
"Other than 4k, what other reason have they given?" Just a quick question, when you load up a PC game and go to settings and then to graphics settings how many options do you have OTHER than resolution? No joke, that is a serious question. THAT is why people want to get a One X, 4K resolution is great but lets not forget about AA, draw distance, lighting, particle effects, shadows, and amount of objects on screen at the same time. What about the boost in performance overall with load times, and OS response times? I remember people were comparing the PS4 vs PS4pro version of FFXV Sky and the amount of clouds. There is a lot more than just resolution that gets increased.
@Gh05t: Quick reply: What if I never bother looking up or correcting the resolution on my PC? As someone who's been gaming since before the SNES it may be hard for me to comprehend the idea that there are commenters here born after such a time, but possibly even more so when the PS2 was criticized as the least powerful system of it's gen, yet it sold more than the Xbox and Gamecube combined. A couple more times over in fact. Graphics weren't that much of a key factor back then, and no one's really given valid reason why they are now. Edit: If the whole of the "Console War" argument isn't about the best selling or most popular system, then why this BS goes on needs to be explained to me. Cause when you roll out a console that's $100 more than it's competition, mid that console generation when it's apparently largely dependent on 3rd party, I have a hard time seeing how its going to do well on the general consumer market. Much less how such a move will increase brand popularity.
"What if I never bother looking up or correcting the resolution on my PC?" Then the One X isnt for you, its not that hard. this console isnt for EVERYONE. "Graphics weren't that much of a key factor back then" (Preface: I do know bits refer to processor but back in the day it was used to demonstrate the ability to output colors on the screen) Yes they were, its always been a console selling point. Nintendo had 8bit so Sega ran 16bit, then SNES came out at 16 bit. then Saturn and Playstation went 32bit. Hell the N64 is NAMED because of it, to seperate its ability for better graphics. Why all the articles of games at 900p Xbox and 1080p PS4 if it doesnt matter? Why was this used as a reason during the beginning (emphasis on beginning, since it has changed to no exclusives) of the generation for buying a PS4? Why is it now not important when Xbox X is coming out that will be more powerful, with the ability to have higher resolutions? You can remember history however you want but when they were running ads purely based on the ability to have better graphics (SEGA) and naming consoles after the graphics capabilities (NINTENDO) and then trying to say that graphics dont mean a lot now is ridiculous. The whole point of the One X is for people like me who bought a new generation of machine that was so weak it couldn't do 1080p with every game!!! Dont get me wrong the games looked good but it wasnt what it should have been. This console will change that for people like me. People like you who dont care, dont ever look at the settings of a game... If you want an Xbox, that is what the "S" is for. If you dont want an Xbox, thats OKAY too.
@Gh05t: Why bother quoting me if you don't bother to actually read and understand what I'm saying? Sega always hyped having the better graphics yet continually came in second to Nintendo. The N64 may have been 64 bit - hint, it wasn't. Neither was 32 bit - but that didn't save it from the PS1 which had good games with decent graphics. Would say horrid then as now, but then, Atari Lynx and the like were the only things to measure it against. So better to say graphics looked better than the competition's. Then as now however, graphics remain a somewhat empty PR talking point. Horizon Zero Dawn or Last of Us may be considered great looking titles, but its their stories and game play that earns popularity. Quantum Break was also good looking, but because the story was so poor and the game play broken, its only the hardcore gamer who even thinks of it nowadays. And not fondly. My whole point is that I don't want and Xbox. Gave the OG one a shot, had to get it for Panzer Dragoon, but after that lost interest. Especially after the COD mentality took over. And given that the brand's relevance is slipping, purposely weakened by MS focusing on the wrong things, not seeing how talking up graphics which - especially without honestly good games, has never helped sell consoles. It only makes for bloated ads.
best version of console multiplatforms plus the best exclusives. I can understand if you want the latest and greatest hardware, but dollar for dollar XBOX is the best money can buy. No joke, this system will give the PS5 a run for its money, though I'm sure the PS5 will be 8-10 teraflops, and then the next gen XBox is looking at 20-30 Teraflops. XBOX is basically an early jump on next gen, next gen won't truly start until Microsoft says it does.
2 reason for me .... 1 Like the brand 2 why not .
Microsoft could release a painted turd and you'd buy it.
Yes I will . come November i will be buying two of them and they are better than that turd from Sony . Sorry mate just prefer the brand.
To waste money.
If you want the most powerful console that will have the best versions of third party games as well as 4K uhd blu ray built in to the hardware as well as running all MS games at their best than it's a no brainer unless your a hater fanboy or to stupid to realize any better than it's not for you.
Maybe don't call others stupid when you yourself don't know the difference between "than" and "then".
"as well as running all MS games at their best" Sorry but that's on a Windows 10 PC not Xbox.
“If you want the most powerful console" Did Xbox fans bought the PS4 when it was the most powerful console? Nope. So, that's not a good reason. More power does not equal better. That's a lesson that MS and its fans are going to learn for the second time.
I don't know, this video still doesn't convince me to spend 500 dollars. The games aren't. I'd rather be catious and wait until the typical hype that surrounds a new home console disappears. Not criticizing everything, because I own a Xbox One controller for Pc gaming. I like that controller, the position of the analog sticks and the robust overall build of it, but that's not enough to become a committed Xbox gamer.
Another useless article ... shows Sony people are scared if you need to keep posting this rubbish.
Why scared? If the product is really that good like Microsoft and many Xbox brand slaves say, one could always save the money and purchase the "beast" (haha). It's not like you can't own both (the Pro and the ... "beast" => I'm always a little bit ashamed of this rather embarassing definition). The hardware "beast" that is the Xbox One X and the software (and hardware) "giant" that is the Pro. No need to be scared ...
Nothing against you personally. I'm not attached to a certain brand. If a product is good, then there's nothing against a purchase. For now I prefer to wait.
Hey, is that the Electronic Playground/Judgment Day guy from G4 back in the day?
Same reason I bought a PS4 pro, I'm a gamer. 37 year old and going strong.
“Well, I’d say if you want true 4K gaming, it requires 6TFLOPs of power, we have 43% more graphical power, over 60% more memory we make available to developers,” Yet 3rd party games are using checkerboard rendering.....

«Why all the articles of games at 900p Xbox and 1080p PS4?» Some still dont understand why. Let me explain!!!!!!!! It was the start of a new gen, after the longest. Microsoft and Sony were launching a new console almost at the same time. One console was sold at 499 and another at 399. The problem was that the 399 console got better specs then the 499 console and games look better. All Gamers wanted to buy a new console, but now thats not the reality, gamers arent all seeking to buy a upgrade. For those who still dont understand. Just imagine that the PRO, at 399, was more powerfull then X, at 499!!!! What is sad is that if Microsoft ditch Kinect and made the Xbox One at 499 but used the 100 on upgrading the specs, Microsoft could have crushed the PS4 in term of specs!!!! Games would run better, higher frame rates, better AA and so on and they could have sold much more consoles, games and didnt lose so much Marketshare.
