Microsoft's long-awaited premium console delivers exactly what's been promised, the best console you can buy right now, with a few caveats.
DOPE! The X is definitely a beast of a machine even tho I'm a Playstation gamer
Microsoft kept it's promise and then some with the Xbox One X. Time to get those 4K Tv's yall
That's when i will get mine (along with a Pro). I'm good with the base units on my older Samsung plasma.... for now.
Already have my 4K TV. My One X arrived this morning, can't wait to get home from work! The amount of features the One X offers over its competition...it's not even fair to compare anymore. One X is vastly superior.
They've kept the promise on great hardware, but if there new games, new ips at gamescom and E3 are not showing of the power ie like Sony 1st party games do, then I won't be buying any new 4k TV until nxt gen tbh, the ball is firmly in ms court to impress me to get a x, I'll wait till E3 to make a final dicision.
The hardware is solid, now they just need to work on providing more in house content. I don't care if they continue their plan to support both PC and console... I just want there to be more in house created content. They have a huge back catalog of gems just doing nothing. By adding og xbox support is a nice step but take some of those og titles and give them proper sequels all these years later. Make them cross platform play between PC / xbox.
threefootwang, - Yeah it's great, make sure you get everything properly setup, for some Tv's like mine, you got to go to the settings an manually enable HDR, (X too, check out the short insect demo) plus adjust brightness etc but man once you get it done the graphics just pop, nothing earth shatteringly different but environments are just crisper...its probably all in my head but I think I'm playing a bit better too.
They promised "true 4k gaming without compromise". You think they "kept it's promise and then some with the Xbox One X" Mmmmm
Since Phil and the team came through and promised on hardware. If they gave as much care as they did with hardware I can only imagine the software will be there. Phil said there next focus is on games and first party. Why doubt them now since they recognized they had a hardware problem and fixed it I can only see the same effort being done with the games.
They kept their promise?? The console does checkerboarding and Phil Spencer is an idiot because he thinks checkerboarding is native 4k Xbox fans were on PS4PRO for doing checkerboarding now that the Xbox One X does it its totally fine thats bs. Some games are targeting 4k they might and might not hit it wheres their promise of games that were coming?? I see people losing their minds over the enhanced games big deal they have better graphics but its not worth my time playing a game again just to play it in 4k. I have an Xbox One S it has a 4k bluray player in it nobody rushed out to buy it with a 4k bluray what did it sell a few million and in reality the Xbox One S was the Xbox upgrade to go against PS4PRO. Phil Spencer said PS4PRO is an Xbox One S competitor and vice versa its the same thing so to me the Xbox One X is a new console since Phil is comparing both PS4PRO and Xbox One S and he says that the PS4PRO isn't a true 4k console. Xbox One X is but its only for enhanced games from the original Xbox the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One if it was a true 4k console developers wouldn't have to target 4k they would be able to hit it no problem. Heres the link and nobody can call the Xbox One X a true 4k gaming console because they have 0 games with new engines all the games that have been shown are from outdated engines of course games are going to look great they have 0 exclusives they haven't shown me a game to get me to buy one. If they launched with a Conker 2 game I would have bought one day one but they didn't have any games. Heres the link https://www.theverge.com/20...
Maybe I'll get one when they deliver on all those other promises they made. Or at least the one that matters which was that one billion or so in new games development.
Props for the mature response! It’s refreshing when people just simply recognize the efforts of others even if it’s not their brand of choice. And yes, it’s a beautiful machine. Mine snuggles up right next my PS4 Pro :).
Mine too. Side by Side
Mine too. Not side by side but more like pro on top shelf and X on middle.
Mine too. Sony fan through and through but I must say really well built console. If they bring the games than will have 3 bad butt consoles on the market
They have my curiosity, now I want them to grab my attention
I had an "empty" feeling when I bought the Pro[I don't do VR]. It felt like a waste of money. With the X, it feels like I got what I paid for immediately. Very happy with my purchase(so far).
BEASTLY! "An incredibly impressive console that delivers exactly what was promised." Well done Microsoft.
I picked one up and love the fact it actually upgrades backwards compatible games. Put in Mass Effect 1 and it ran amazing even on the S it was pretty vanilla. Always played it all choppy and glitchy. Gears 2 looks awesome also. It’s better than what the S did. Halo 5 and Gears 4 look incredible too. Overall pretty happy with the Machine and I bought the controller with the rubber grips, nice! AC Origins is a treat on it too. Now I’ve got an even bigger backlog of Pro and X games.
Beastly 9.0! 👍🏼🍺 I am glad I bought it.
Too much water.
I commented 7 days ago. How does an IGN review took a week to be approved? The IGN's PS4 Pro and Switch reviews took about 7 min a piece to get approved. what the heck !?? Anyhow. 👍🏼🍺 27866; to the X. A beastly well deserved 9.
the 9.0 makes it the highest scoring console in this current generation from IGN. MS has created a great console for gamers.
Definitely a great piece of hardware.
Looks like it.
I got mine and it is AWESOME!!
Got mine yesterday morning. Which was also Destiny reset day, so I didn't get to try any enhanced games since Destiny 2 isn't on that list. However, I already saw some improvements even with that game that isn't enhanced at all at this stage. Better frame rates "meaning less drops, still 30fps of course", better 4k upscaling, much faster loading times for the game and events. The menu also works much faster now, loading the inventory and performing tasks. Also the world map loads faster. Although it still has that nasty bug where Audio Cuts out.. fix your game Bungie. Xbox's latest UI was already really responsive on the original X1, but it is even snappier. Adding friends to the party etc feels even more fluid than it already was. All little things but definitely things that made the game better. Can't wait to try out games that are actually enhanced.
Great piece of hardware no matter how you slice it IMO. BF2, TR, and G4 shine like I've never seen in console form. Amazing stuff.
Looking forward to picking this up once they release a white (or soft-pink) version, bundled with a bigger HDD and 1-2 games...
Im waiting for lavender 😃
Completely satisfied with mine. I just now finally finished gears 4 last night. i launched it to check out the enhancements and ended updoing the last few chapters on the X out of sheer fascination right then and there. Holy shit does it look amazing on the x in 4k hdr. Even the character animations look smoother. Forza 7 is just simply badass on the X. There are times it looks real. I literally have never seen console graphics look like this and sincerely believe me when I say seeing it on a 4k hdr screen in person is not the same as watching videos of it on websites. Just stunning. My RIG 800lx gaming headphones that I just purchased also came with a free Dolby Atmos license as well so I put that to use straight away.
Fantastic system. Wait to you see Gears of War 4 and Halo 5. Wow.
Halo 5 is transformed by it
they gave the pro an 8.5 for reference, and that was pre boost mode.
Hooked on mine. Project Scorpio edition looks slick and next to the PS4 Pro, and Nintendo Switch the trifecta is complete
To all enjoying the X congratulations on your purchase it is a fantastic system that compliments your hobby to the fullest.
Microsoft have made the very best here. It's the most powerful console on the market by a good margin. Let's see those devs take advantage of its capabilities.
They gotta fix that blu Ray player and all will be good.
Update: 4k blu Ray playback and netflix has been patched on the one x, no more crushed blacks and dull colors.
Case closed the beast is here to stay now let em get back to feeding 4k textures for breakfast lunch and dinner :)
Good hardware, that's the first step. Next and most importantly, the software. If microsoft can create some must have exclusives than they can maybe start competing with Sony and nintendo but until than, they'll remain far behind. Make the xbox a must have console like the PS4 with exclusive games. It's not like microsoft are short on cash but they lack ambition and creativity.
Exactly, exclusives just aren’t there. I’m sorry MS and MS fanboys but if you’re touting Forza 7 as your must have title then you have major issues. Either way I’m super excited to see the upcoming games in 2018 run on this beast!
Forza 7 should win VGA in the "Biggest Letdown" catagory. Im a forza fan btw, i just bought a X and forza 7 does look amazing but the game itself is just disappointing. I hope MS pulls out the games soon but if not the 3rd party and 360 games will be fine for me. I have a Pro for sonys exclusives. Honestly, Sony has enough games coming out soon that ill be completely busy with what the current line up is.
Great looking machince nice specs but it lacks the most important thing which is a current & future compelling portfolio of XBO exclusive games for the hardware to compliment.Fix that important issue asap & newcomers may bite.
already have 4k tv hdr not planning getting one its a bit late now that the next generation will be out in 2019
Didn’t knw the X supports Dolby Atmos until today,Exited to try it out with my A40tr
Impressive. I am very happy with my purchase.
The X is definitely a powerful machine, and it has some great features to boot. Definitely a lot more capable than the Pro in a lot of ways. Still holding off for the PS5, but looks good.
my xbox one X and PS4 pro are side by side on my desk, am all set
I recognize that the machine has power. It is stronger and performs better than current generation consoles. Microsoft and (IGN)orance, here is the problem, we purchase consoles for the exclusive titles. Raw power is secondary. This is why I chose the PS4 brand. Sony provided a great list of exclusive titles unlike Microsoft.
