We're less than a day away from when you will be able to pre-order the Xbox One X. Read on for 5 reasons you might want to wait to buy it.
Bunch of stupid reasons. The girl says the X should be played on a 4K tv, despite the fact the X supports supersampling. Then next, she recomends the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X as alternatives. WTF? Bugs/Glitches With the Software - Yeah, because both Xbox One and Xbox One S was plagued with lots of it. Price - Good luck at getting a PC with the X´s specs for 500 bucks! Small and Less Than Stellar Launch Lineup - "Small" LMAO!
The author is female.
Fixed. Thanks for the heads up!
no matter what people or fans like the author says, I'm getting an x1x day one just like I did with the pro. no games? check 500dlls? check bugs/glitches? check 4k tv? check
Point she is making is that you should have a decent 4K TV to really takes advantage of the hardware. Otherwise, why get the X1X? Forza 7? That is literally the only decent launch game that truly takes advantage of the hardware. You'd be wise to hold off a bit.
@MRBIGCAT I understand you point man, but the same reason applies to PS4 Pro as well. Wipeout, Rise of Tomb Raider and Horizon Zero Dawn are the best 4K games on PS4 Pro. And you NEED a nice 4K TV for it just like Forza 7 on Xbox One X.
You forget that we are going to see a list of titles that will be 'patched' for 4K support that does take advantage of the hardware (ReCore, Gears, and various 3rd parties). And what about the 'supersampling' that the X1X will offer for those with 1080p There is a lot of tech that a lot of people can enjoy without a 4K TV, as that is not the only reason to buy it. Just sayin' In the end though, people should be cautious as I don't think the X1X will be for everyone, that is for sure.
In order to take full advantage of what people are going to buying the Xbox X for (all its specs) you'll want to have technology that supports it within your house. This is where the 4K TV comes in. You make a point in response to Mrbigcat that the PS4 Pro needs a 4K TV as well, and while that's true, the Pro doesn't have a $500 price tag attached. The article never even states the PC as an option, because everyone knows a $500 PC is crap. The point there is pretty invalid. And just because the Xbox one and Xbox one s weren't plagued with tons of software issues, doesn't mean they didn't exist. And lastly, as for the lineup, it's not exactly exciting since most games are available on the previous consoles. No exclusives are available at launch with the Xbox one x. That in itself is disappointing.
It has quicker load times; better resolution; Supper sampling at 1080P; Dynamic Resolution games which run below 1080P will run natively at 1080p; Steadier frame rates; If the framerate is unlock it will run at the higher framerate. The only missing feature is 4K. so that is 7 features of which only 1 is missing. Is not like you'll never be able to afford a 4K TV. They get cheaper by the day. I mean she is actually not talking to me. I have a 4K TV. But it I didn't I would get the X before a 4K TV because it just runs games much better and I know that I would eventually upgrade anyway.
Wait if the water cooler will work
well she only needed this one reason not to buy an Xbox1X: you can get a ps4 and a switch with games for each for essentially the same price problem solved. you're welcome
Well it does say a ps4 pro and an Xbox one s for the same price 😜
I would wait it out because of the price. The Xbox One dropped a lot in price very quickly.
I doubt you would buy one anyway.
It's hypothetical. But yeah, I would be hesitant to buy an interave console anyway (didn't get a PS4 Pro either).
number one reason: it's an Xbox.
Theirs not a reason in all world that will get me to wait or put off
You're all missing the biggest reason-doesn't release for another 3 months.
1 reason. Games! Though including PoE and Black Desert has peaked my interest.
Bunch of stupid reasons.
When the ps pro was coming out I nevered seen so many options on why not to buy lol
You didn't pay enough attention then, it was crazy... This crap happens all the time when something new comes out, I never understand these types of articles, like people can't decide for themselves what to spend their own money on...
Why are there always articles trying to decide for others what one should do with your own money? Want it and can afford it? Grab it!
It's an opinion piece for why you should wait to buy. It's usually a consumer-smart idea to wait and see how the launch goes anyways. The article doesn't say 5 reasons not to buy it at all. And of course, it's unspoken that even after reading the article a lot of people will still pick one up at launch if they were planning on it already.
I have a 65" Sony 4K HDR television. I want a XB1X.
What a sacrilege! Your heretic. 🤣
Lol! well... i tried to find a Nintendo and Microsoft branded 4k HDR tv but I was unsuccessful...
#1 no games
1-Supported Games 2-VR Contents 3-Batches 4-Reliability 5-Value
My top 5 reasons- 1. -Price- The xbox1x could very well could be 399 by holiday 2018 and possibly even lower if its not well recieved after holiday 2017 to stay competitive with a possible $349 pro this year or a $299 pro by holiday 2018. Ms have a history of slashing prices (+$100) on their consoles 6 months-1.5 years after release. Look to the launch xb1 ($499 holiday 2013) and how fast it dropped in price, and the xb1 slim ($399 2 tb Aug 2 2016, $349 1tb and $299 500 gb both launching Aug 27 2016) for evidence of this claim. 2. -Games- There will most likely be bundles but expect them to hit your wallet even harder than the asking $499 pricepoint. So if one was to wait 6 months to a year later gamers not only would get a cheaper pricepoint for admission but they would also get some free must have newer games as well. 3. -Kinks of being an early adopter- My launch ps4 had a controller issue where the analogs sticks would fall apart, my L2 and R2 triggers would stick, and my ps4 would crash on some games without warning (this most likely was a dev issue but not sure). My ps4 pro had a fan issue that would vibrate the whole console after 6 months of having it. Good thing i had a warranty on both issues and they were both remedied but for those that dont expect to be fukt sending your console or whatever back to recieve a refurbished 1 or worse when all this could have been avoided by waiting and being patient. Basically why i decided skipping getting a switch with some issues it has had over the course of 6 months (warping issues, joycons not synching, the dock scratching the screen, and the glitch where the switch had charging issues). 4. -Support- If the state of the xbox1 slim as anything to go by, 2017 has been the WORST year for MS by far as far as sales, games, ect are concerned. Since early 2016-present the xbox1 has seen more cancelations and delays on ms 1st partys than ANY 1 year stretch prior. Canceled games include fable, scalebound, and i think one more, and delayed games include quantum break, recore, and recently crackdown 3. If we were to examine all these negative impacts on the xb1s the future does not look bright for the xb1x. So taking the wait and see approach on this as well could prove beneficial. 5. -AAA 3rd party support/1st party (all games) being "uncompromised 4k- If this console is not well recieved devs are not going to take full advantage of the x's power. When most 3rd party devs have flat out said while the x will see more 1800p-native 4k/4k textured games than the pro, none of these experiences will be 60 fps because of being tethered to older 8th gen weaker consoles (which have +90% install base as of now). If all the x is doing is 1800-4k 30 fps on mutiplat games i dont gamers by the 10s of millions buying 1. However, i do believe most 1st party ms **single player games** halo, gears, forza, hitting 4k 60. I honestly hope the xb1x is a huge success because yall xbox dudes have been getting a raw deal in 2017 and this has got to be the dryest year for ms 1st party games in all of xbox history. I mean damnit if this is ms's last machine (even tho rumors state otherwise) that would be shitty because that would leave nintendo vs sony which is no real threat. I at least commend the shit out of crapgamer and mooch for finally stepping up to the plate and putting the word out that things are in fact fukt. Saying ms upper execs need a huge shakeup, more 1st partys, and more 3rd party bdd's to get content exclusive to ms. I only metion these 2 dudes because their podcast is the most successful and heard podcast by most xbox only diehard fans. END RANT
