Microsoft releases a new trailer for the Xbox One X, adding a few review quotes to the mix of the hype for its new console.
That's typically how new consoles work, lol. It was Pro before it, and it'll be PS5 after it. It's not a new phenomenon. They need to worry about games, because after the holiday sales, it doesn't seem like their new "hardware focused" approach had a very big impact.
Exactly... its like they forgot how on nov 15th 2001 their og xbox was vastly superior to that of the ps2 with some games being able to hit 720i (which is crazy because i didnt even know what 720 meant in 2001) and the ps2 steam rolled it. But then again they prob did forget as the people who ran xbox in 2001 are long gone in 2017 where as with sony and nintendo... 😎
Power is nothing without the games.
Xbox has the best version of every new 3rd party game, and has 3 AAA exclusive games coming in the next 6 months. As you say games are all that matters, How many more does ps have in the same period? All the ps fans said there was gonna be release dates for games at PSX....it never happened. When is the next AAA PS exclusive going to be released?
@prematua, no, that would be PC....
it's the stupidest thing i've ever seen really. It's like MS made the first console to be stronger than the old consoles of all time LOL. WE HAVE THE MOST POWERFUl yea guys it happens every gen and 3x this gen. It's just silly as Fu6k
I remember the first Xbox. It was the most powerful console of its gen out of the gate. It's games looked heads and shoulders better than ps2 games by a wide margin. It didn't do much to sell the console though. Ms wouldn't have gotten the foothold they did if nvidia twisted ms hand into getting a year head start in the US, and if ms hadn't managed to get a few key games exclusive in the 360, coupled with Sony's own start to last gen. Now ms is going back to playing the power card, but had even fewer compelling games than they did for the ogxbox
Its funny with all these "accolades" da x couldnt win npd for the month it launched like so many (xbox dudes) claimed. I really want to know what happens 3 months from now when the xb1x hype completely dies and ppl are buying the xb1s even less frequently than before... because we all know once a new version of an xb1 releases the prior version becomes obsolete This thing needed to be 399 if it wanted to be a real contender like the xb1s was... for 3 months. At 399 id given the xb1x 3-5 npd's but then it would go back to business as usual... da x better be 299 by the time da ps5 launches 🤗
They didnt sell the System at a loss just to push numbers. Now lets all pretend that we care ey
But even at 500 its still selling at a lost.
Powerful console that still runs most games at 30 fps.
@gamebro https://news.xbox.com/en-us... They lump native, dynamic, and checkboard 4K into one catagory of Ultra 4K without defining the difference.
Wait is that the X or the pro?
Checkerboarding is a native 4k format by technical definition. That's how ms defined it in developer papers. Contextually to how most use it around here, it is not "true 4k", as most relate it more to upscaling, which is a different process. Ms did say no compromises though, and seems most took that to mean nothing like checkerboarding since that's what Phil was trying to imply to put Sony's offering in a bad light
The X is certainly the best console money can buy!!
Why just because of graphics lol how about no
Nope just the most expensive you can buy, a golden turd is still a turd
Sure it delivered. It delivered the least amount of consoles in November and the least amount of games I'm 2018.
More like worlds most overhyped console
Stunning well done MS .
"Stunning"..."W ell done"...this is why no one takes you people seriously.
I game commercial that doesn't really focus on the games like it should. Ms really have their priorities messed up and need to fix them.
It's a commercial about newly released powered up console why wouldn't they focus on hardware? That's like releasing the elite controller and showing off new games lol it's a hardware commercial not software. They did that software showoff with the best lineup in Xbox history campaign. Now it's a power campaign after getting lack of power complain lts. When spring hits it'll be a software campaign after lack of games complaint. Business 101
Showing nothing but multiplats that you can get on ps4/pc and the casuals wont even tell the difference. Very sad what phil did to the xbox brand.
The beast feast. I just got my 4k hdr TV a few days ago and man. It's hard going back. I have it in the living and when I watch TV in the bedroom......no comparison. The X on it is mind blowing y'all don't know what you're missing if you don't have em yet. Halo looks amazing in 4k hdr on a 65". Did GTA get an update yet I haven't tried it yet on my new TV. I bet it still looks better even without it. Power of the X
Scorpio is so big news it ultimately confirmed that the original xbox one failed.
Hey at least they talk about it instead of releasing a console and not saying much more about it after that
So what's wrong with that? Please explain.
Sony kept it about games(which i said they would), and that seemed to work for them. MS is keeping it about the power(hardware), and if that's working for them, then good enough for MS. One may not agree with Sony's approach, but it's apparent that it was successful. May not push PS4P sales as much as possible, but whatever, the games are incoming. It's hard to qualify how MS approach has worked for them, because the numbers can be interpreted in multiple ways, and honestly, trying to discuss it with any reasonable interpretation wouldn't go very far before becoming some fan boy idiotic debate around here. We can look at the past 18 months before the X1X launch though, and see that MS approach of talking most about an upcoming new most poweful console has had an affect on their X1 sales overall, as they're on the decline. One month or so of X1X sales isn't really indicative of anything, any more than the first month of PS4P sales are indicative of how well it'll do in the long run. All we can really look at is the overall market between them, which Sony is clearly doing better in. But comparing them can be tricky because MS won't release solid numbers, so it's all between verified numbers and assumed ones.
Under Delivered, just like the PS4 Pro.
The world loves the Xbox One
not when its not selling in japan its a write off
Colbert i have one word for you, delusional😉
Is that you MS? You do know that there is a whole world outside your Redmond campus don't you?:)
I got this video pinned to my facebook page
Why are ms all about buzz words this gen? Every gen has had a 'worlds most powerful console' but I never seen this much bs and hype about it before.
That kind of thing was almost always just playground BS between friends. You might see a comment or two from some company, but never a full 18+ months of it as a major focus of marketing....at least not that I can recall off the top of my head. We had things like blast processing though, but they still showed more games than talked about hardware.
Another one? Come on lol is this it from MS? Every new week? We have a new trailer about the same thing? Over and over and no talk about games? Come on even the exclusives from MS does not have this much of advertisement.... This is one of many reasons for me not to support MS.... More games please....is it so hard? It seams it is not, sinde the fans of MS dont care about games as well.... Im so happy that the world still has Sony and Nintendo
Its hands down the best console ever made. The BC for running Xbox and Xbox 360 games at 4k is crazy awesome. The only thing its missing is first party games and VR. If they supported the MS headsets out the gate and had a half dozen big new games dropping over the next 6 months it would be selling twice as fast. As it is only people invested in the Ms ecosystem or the average Joe blow who just wants FIFA, COD, and PUBG will buy it. If I could only afford one console id buy a Pro so I could play the exclusives and have VR. This was the most anticlimactic console launch since, ever? Sucks because the system kills the PS Pro. VR would be so much better with full roomscale and a way higher resolution. MS is smoking some good dope launching a new system without games and vr in 2017/18.
This is the last xbox in it's current form. After this, microsoft will try another approach. Just streaming. Nobody cares about xbox, and the only reason the 360 did any good was because of the late arrival of the PS3, due to Blu-ray problems and then Price for a new product. xbox got the early start and spent untold millions on advertising, promotions, rrod replacements. All the while bringing the paid DLC DLC DLC Timed DLC movement. and it still finished 3rd,lol. Nintendo understand they fuked up with the Wii u crap, numchucks and grandparents sold the original wii. So with the Swtich they have added portability. Japan loves a portable device.
Nobody cares about Xbox but it sells 10s to 100s of thousands of consoles per month.
Hype hype, tripe
Nice to see everyone not arguing and in the festive spirit haha. This site is basically a warzone 90% of the time.
Warzone is a bit strong. I liken it to the unenlightened, enlightening the unenlightened.
It's a pretty sad thing to boast about. N64 and Dreamcast were once the most powerful consoles ever. Wii U for 1 year was the most powerful console. The best thing to boast about is a lineup of games. PS4 and Switch do that.
Sony also boasted about it. PS4 was their first time have the most powerful/better performing console after all.
And still backed it up with games. Plenty of them.
And that's just it I have PS4/PS3/PS2. Nintendo Wii/SNES/NES. Kids are getting 3DS' this year. If I had to pick between Nintendo Switch and Xbox One X right now it would be Switch because of their exclusives. Hmm do I want to play Assassin's Creed Origins and get and Xbox One X for it? Nope PS4 has me covered. Plus I've got all them Exclusives in 2018 to look forward to. Right now there is no way I can talk the wife into getting a $500 let alone convincing myself. "But it's got Cuphead" she'll just flip me off.
Not at the beginning of the gen. As admitted by its head exec.
These comments are so toxic... What in the world? Seriously. Congrats to Microsoft for keeping their promise and delivering the absolute beast that is Xbox One X! I have never had so much fun, and games have never looked this good!
Why are they toxic? Because they point out obvious flaws with this console, Microsoft, and their tactics this generation? This is a gaming website where people talk about this stuff. No reason to just simply give praise to Microsoft and Xbox because they have the most powerful console a year after its major competitors last console and it's $100 more. Cool...Sony could come out with a more powerful PS4 Pro X in 6 months for the same price that's more powerful. It's nothing special in other words...just hardware doing what hardware does...getting better over time for more money. Power isn't the main factor to a lot of people. Power CERTAINLY isn't the main issue Xbox has. So when this stuff comes out and we're all like "why not spend that X1X money on new games and studios?" or people here are foaming at the mouths "DA BEAST IS DA BEST!!!" while ignoring all the other issues makes for a confusing stance for a lot of "outsiders". So the comments generally turn bad when someone says that this is the greatest console of all time when it's just simply the most powerful console. It's all open to discussion.
Oh please, do you even believe this nonsense you're spewing? What flaws with the console? I have one and it's hands down the best console I've ever owned, and the best graphics and performance I've ever experienced. I'm sure you and others were praising Sony for the PS4 Pro even though it was a half step from the start. If you fancy some reading, go look up the reason people bought a PS4 over Xbox One originally. It was more power and resolution. So don't pretend that narrative never existed. Microsoft has already said they're opening or purchasing new studios. I'd have loved to see "Where's the games?" articles about the PS4 for the first 3+ years of this generation, what we got instead was "PS4 has no exclusives and that's genius". (LOOK IT UP, IT'S REAL). Xbox One X is the least confusing console on the market. It can actually do 4K AAA games, it has the ability to use 4K assets and play 4K movies. If you want a true machine that can do that, it's the best best hands down. It plays EVERY single multiplatform game better. We all play multiplats 99% of the time, and now it's advantage Xbox. If this were truly a site talking about just gaming and what's wrong and right, where's all the talk about Sony ignoring backwards compatibility? Saying no to EA Access? Not allowing name changes on PSN? Not allowing cross-network play? Trying to patent the term "let's play"? Rushing through this past E3 in 52 minutes showing exactly what they showed the previous year? Showing nonstop CGI trailers of games not coming for years and years and years?
That's the truth. Every Console at one point could be the most powerful. But that title expires eventually. So theirs no justification for the last 4 years to say the PS4 or then pro to say it's the most powerful when that's not why I bought it. It was always for the games. I bought my OG PS4 for Knack, Killzone Shadows Fall, and Infamous Second Son. Yes, I played and beat them.
Well quotes is the only thing microsoft can do. There is nothing else after their worst year ever . The final nail was floping another month in the us with the x launch. They will go more then a year without selling more in any market worldwide. Losing market share every month. It doesnt matter power if the console is expensive, sony learned that and thats why the pro is 399. Even having much more exclusives and better they didnt risk going with a higher price. Microsoft was hoping what millions would buy the x at 500? To play multiplats at higher rez? Lol. The average gamer doesnt care about that.
Flopping? By all accounts the Xbox One X had a huge month in sales, and the biggest rumors in numbers is over 700k in the US alone. Microsoft had their biggest month ever in the history of Xbox One this November. By the way, if the Xbox One X "flopped" what did the PS4 Pro do?
yes, huge for Microsoft, but not for Sony or Nintendo standard, thats why it lost again. You dont understand that the PS4 PRO is part of the PS4 sales.... Its not a next gen console. The PRO is doing just fine, because Sony has profit from every single one that is sold, the same doesnt apply with the X, where Microsoft loses money in every single console sold.... More the PRO was never seen like the saviour for Sony, because gamer are happy with the PS4 standard model and thats one of the reasons why its the biggest seller. The PRO is just for some that got money and want better graphics. The X was hype for 15 or 16 months like a gamechanger by Microsoft. Then they started to backtracked, but the idea was power the way for the top. The problem was that on launch month and after 3000 news about how much better and superior old and new games would be, how powerfull it was, 300 enhanced games, how fast it was 4k and 4k and 4k that, it failed to reach 1 place in any market. Again any market. So it floped. Some try to turn the reality and talked about money, but what sold big was the S at 189. Thats a amazing price for a console and they sold tons of S model.
X as new hardware still lost to PS4. Switch is selling out faster than they can stock them. Switch reached 10 million the same pace PS4 hit it's first 10 million. Xbox is still struggling to beat the other 2 consoles. It's supposed to beat them both if 4K hardware means so damn much. Consumers are showing they still rather play where the most compelling games are. That's not Xbox One in 2017.
xbone x = no games
PS4 Pro = Inferior Games
Switch = portable console games
Inferior how? Exclusives clearly aren't inferior, no one I'd hope would think that. I mean, no knocking Xbox exclusives, there's plenty of great ones and some genres PS doesn't have at all (Forza Horizons). As for multiplats the X1X run's most games at a higher checkerboarded 4K and a slightly more solid 30fps on the one year newer and $100 more expensive console. Bravo. Amazing. Can't believe this console is slightly faster for being a year newer and $100 more (even though I was doing 4K and 30fps three years ago with a used $250 AMD R9 290X, but whatever). Cool. Come on man...
LOL. We want GAMES, not bloody trailers of, existing titles!
Ps4 pro games multi have better performance,and not all games have better quality on xbox one x,resolution is not graphics.
While Microsoft touting it's "Lil bit Mo' Better Bros Box X" console as the most powerful console ever through this XMAS into 2018. In truth it will be the most powerful '3rd Party console' due to it's lack lustered 1st party library. After it's few 1st party games launch during the 1st and 2nd quarter of next year. What do xboners have to look forward to? More X360/Orig Xbox Back-Compat games and prettier & and higher rez 3rd party games that the competition & PC can play also? Any un-announced 1st party games MS has made (recently) with unknown developers in the works surly won't be ready within the next 2 or more years. So all you have for next few years is prettier 3rd party games, more BC games. And next thing you know "BOOM" the 9th generation of consoles will launch starting with the "PlayStation RYZEN 5" And once the wide web will be all about the "PS RYZEN 5" specs & capabilities with Ryzen cores, who's gonna care what the "Mo Better Bros Box X" latest 3rd party game that looks sharper and prettier (yet can't run frame-rates any faster) than it's base model XB1 or the Pro. Great 2 or 3 year future I see for you X1X.
That's great for Microsoft,but where are the games when your competitors have fantastic games.
Wow, look at all the deflection about the Xbox X. Never seen so many haters in one comment section. Do yuou really have to hate one console to like the other. I have them all the only part i hate are the PS4 fanboys they are the worst I have ever seen in all my years gaming which is well over 40 now.
I don't hate it but in 40 years of gaming, how many times has a console boasted about power but a console with weaker hardware but a better library won? The answer, almost every time. Atari to Coleco, NES to SMS, PS1 to N64, PS2 to Xbox, Wii to the HD twins, Every Nintendo handheld vs Atari, SEGA, Neo Geo, Sony and more.Now PS4 and a Tablet console are beating it for one simple reason. Games. It's not a hard concept to grab. People buy consoles for games. Power is nice but it's nothing without compelling exclusive games.
