The next generation of Microsoft’s home console launches Nov. 7 and the company says the upgrade very much keeps the diehard gamer in mind.
I thought the xbone x is this generation and not next.
It's quite powerful so some assume it is next generation.
The POWER of the BEAST! ♏
Lmfao Sep 😂
It's not meant to be the successor to the XB1 though. Just another member of the 'family'.
There won't be a true successor to the One. Microsoft has eliminated generations, and will simply produce a faster machine every three years or so, potentially ceasing production of the lowest model when it's no longer viable...
@WilliamSheridan "There won't be a true successor to the One. Microsoft has eliminated generations, and will simply produce a faster machine every three years or so, potentially ceasing production of the lowest model when it's no longer viable..." Agreed. They don't think there is a need anymore for generations where you have to start all over. You can upgrade anytime you want like you do in the PC market while still enjoying all the newest games.
No not assume it’s def next gen
@moldybread now if only Microsoft would start releasing some of those newer games. Cuphead was good though.
@seniyah why would a hardcore gamer that wants a more powerful console want an xbox? Hardcore gamers also want the best games and xbox is missing too many of them.
the time will come when a game will get released and you'll have to verify if you have the "specs" to run the game with a console! It'll be simpler than PC on a sense that you won't have to look at the numbers. At retail, we're facing an upcoming problems with parents not aware that the hardware their kids got doesn't run the new triple AAA games but still runs the indie games/sports games. For me it's not a problem at all, I've been dealing with building my own PC since the late 90's, but for younger gamers, parents will get pressured to buy the "upgraded hardware" to be able to play the same games as their friends.
It's a current gen, iterative console. Nothing more. When the PS5 rolls out, you aren't going to see Microsoft put out a marginally more powerful One X. Count on that. They, too, will "jump in" to next gen, no matter how much they claim otherwise.
@LP-Eleven Xbox One's successor will play all games past and present in the Xbox family. That's where MS is headed. Why do you think BC has been such a point of focus this gen? Imagine 20 years from now, I'll still be able to play all my past games on the newest system. No need to break out my OG Xbox or 360.
@BiggerBoss "@moldybread now if only Microsoft would start releasing some of those newer games." Agreed. They have the hardware and the online, support for backwards compatibility and even some titles using Play Anywhere like Cuphead you mentioned . They need to seriously look into more investment within and creating new titles. Something that seems to be secondary when it should be the main focus.
It's power is relative to next gen but is being reserved for current gen. Until MS decides to change things and "flip the switch" and it becomes next gen with dedicated games to call its own.
I don't think anyone assumes that. No one with a brain. Next gen consoles don't release with an obsolete CPU that was nearly obsolete 4 years ago.
This gen that gen...why does it matter so much to you. All future Xbox’s will play the same games. All Xbox’s will be BC and FC. Nobody says next gen PC...dump new CPU and GPU upgrade RAM....it still plays all the same games.
Problen w that is that the older consoles have to be dropped off at some point because they wont be supported.
At that point that hardware would be so long in the tooth it wouldn’t matter. The Xbox One will be 7 years old in 2020. I’m not worried about it being discontinued. I’d be more concerned if I couldn’t play Xbox some games at all.
@343_Guilty_Spark It's a lost cause trying to explain to these Sony fanboys something that is easily recognizable but because it's MS, they play dumb. We all know that in the future, all OG Xbox games will play on one Xbox and in order to play anything OG on PS, you'll have to go digging in mommy's basement for your PS1, PS2, PS3, etc.
You kind of do have PC gens though. Intel just released it's line of 8th gen CPUs, GPUs have generational leaps as well.
Also it's 499 not 599. This article is hardly interesting and it's main points are wrong... so much for fact checking
As much as people dont say its next gen here is the definition of next gen " A common label applied to a major upgrade of a hardware or software product".....sounds next gen to me
Xbox 1 x is next gen or not?
Thw specs made it seems next gen compared to all the other consoles on the market but like the PS4 Pro, it plays all the same games of this generation.
Well that is how M$ plans to do upgrades going forward. The game on the X will be able to be played on its successor.
Nope next gen sorry try to spin it however u want, this is a next gen console
its comparable to the pro, about 40% more powerful on paper.
No they don't, lol. The leap from last gen to this gen was massive compared to the "leap" from X1 to X!X, much smaller yet is the leap from PS4 Pro to X1X.
Not until there's an exclusive title for it.
@XiNatsuDragnel it's hard to say. before the PS3/X360, the jumps in hardware performances were tremendous. PS1>PS2>PS3 or Nes>Snes>N64>gamecube were big jumps in hardware performance!, but PS3/X360 to PS4/X1 and then to PS4Pro/Xbox OX, the gap just wasn' that big lately. That's why I wouldn't consider "generation leaps" anymore. Upgrades, sure.
Microsoft has stated they want to eliminate generations. Does anyone classify PC by generation? Maybe possibly by graphics card but no. It seems like even in 4 years if there is an Xbox 2 it may be designed for then current and previous generations to play on it. All it is is hardware upgrade much like a PC.
Definition of next gen - A common label applied to a major upgrade of a hardware or software product
Depends as to whether or not MS continues to support the original Xbox 1 down the road. If they eventually abandoned it and only make games on the Xbox one S and the X, then it will be some sort of next gen console
Yes it’s next gen ms is trying to spin things like it’s not.
Lol the smear campaign against x1x on n4g is in full swing. Sorry x1x is coming baby 😂
What smear? Until Microsoft actually becomes a gaming company, what is there to fear? A monopoly perhaps.
I think your the one who’s going to be crying after u spent $500 for a system with no games...
In 2007 where Xbox fanboys bashing Ps3 and games left and right in N4g!
Xbox One X is about to blow up those charts, they're effectively obsolete
Interesting things about those charts. * pro is expected to outsell the X this holidays. Which doubt it will * Xbo and Xbo S are separate entities when in fact only one is on the market and their added share exceeds the PS4 Slim, when in fact we know it doesn't do so well. And then a million false claims from MS, but nothing what we haven't seen before
Not according to the article it isn't. The research suggests the amount of people interested in buying X1X is nearly identical to the people interested in buying the Pro. This is less impressive when you consider the Pro has been out for a year already.
It is exactly impressive because it's been out for a year. And it's slightly ahead 22% vs 20% or something. Usually new platform releases take the cake. I still believe this will happen. Unless the price is indeed a bigger motivator. I'm just surprised market evaluation puts the Pro ahead
Lol with what?lol you have me dying over here
Looks like I can't say. I posted facts about the Xbox One X that were covered in many stories on this very site, yet that post was marked as spam. Guess some of the mods are into console wars. I love my PS4 Pro, but it's a fact that my Xbox One X will play most games better than the Pro will. I'll still be using both for various games though. Shoot I may have said too much again and could get banned for saying facts like this.
The part that's going against the grain I think is tailoring to a higher-end gamer with a bigger budget. The part that's not is essentially doing what Sony did a year ago.
Gotta love the pie chart that has the Original XB1(not for sale anymore) selling as much as the XB1S. Hmmmm.... Also, there almost definitely will be a sale on Pros this holiday. Will a $500 console sell as much as a $350 console that, even though we obsess about native 4k, most consumers will consider to be pretty similar? Should be interesting...
And then having those numbers accumulated. If true, XBO would actually outsell the Slim 2:1 and we know it isn't I'll be even more impressed if the Pro will actually outsell the Slim. I doubt that, too.
Wish I could brag about ps4 pro but I cant..... https://m.youtube.com/watch...
The xb1x is a mid gen console refresh... And a mighty fine 1 at that. But i disagree that its going against the grain, that genre belongs to nintendo. Its like sony announced their pro and then it forced ms's hand and they announced/released the x 1.5 years later... Where as I feel that if sony never made/announced the pro... We may have got an xbx (next gen) instead of a xb1x (current gen). Even tho the xb1x is pretty powerful... I still assert it should have been 399 this year not next... Because lets face it... Sony is going to shave off 50$ on the pro and the slim making their boxes still 50-150$ cheaper THIS YEAR.
I doubt that. The Pro is a very simplistic evolution of the PS4 while the x physically doesn't have much in common with the XO it must have been in development much longer than the pro. Sony OTOH didn't need the pro. MS was desperate to replace the (failing?) XO. I rather thing the Pro was (quick) reaction to the Scorpio. They must have started at around the same time. Sony opted for the smarter business decisions with the cheaper but faster time to market release.
It doesnt really matter who did what first but, if the xb1x was further along like you think it wouldnt have released a whole year later... Simple facts... Id rather they started a new gen than release a "mid gen refresh" almost 5 years into this one... Doesnt that seem a tad late to the party?? While ms is trying to establish its own footing with the xb1x sony will be fast at work slashing prices on the base ps4/pro, shrinking the pro, and announcing the ps5
Its just using amd's polaris chip which got a die shrink. I think 14 or 12 nm. (It was announced a little after polaris was announced) AMD already released their next gen gpu chip which is better and their cpus are much better now too (ryzen threadripper), and xbox 1x still hasn't released lol. Many thought xbox1x was going to use ryzen lol
xbox one x is going to sell horribly, Microsoft is trying so hard to hype people up for it but barely anybody is getting excited unless Microsoft pays them.
It is going to sell well in the first three months (maximum), then it will be gone.
You pay $500 for the 1X wear the games?
A game console with no exclusives is super against the grain.
Both Ms and Sony need to follow Nintendos trend of more sp games, local coop games and family games. Nintendo outsold both consoles - seriously!
Aside from the level of tech included, what makes Xbox One X any different from PlayStation 4 Pro & New Nintendo 3DS?
Games. XB have none.
