AllGamers has spent a good amount of time with the Xbox One X, and feels like the graphical edge will become significant over time as 4K becomes more widespread.
No it can't. We all know without top quality exclusives the xbone& bone x isn't capable of taking any leads this gen. Let's be real.
Ya need games. It’s simple. It’s a great machine, but why drop $500 on something I can play all the software elsewhere.
Actually, that is just called an option of where to play. The fact that everything else proves Microsoft is not a gaming company is what should raise concern with investing in a $500 console with only two years left on this gen.
Simple, because not everyone can, duh!
Hahaha sure it can.
I'll say this time and time again. These mid-gen upgraded systems are not gonna outsell the standard consoles (PS4 Slim and Xbox One S). Because a lot of casual gamers / parents will not drop the $400 - $500 on them. The Switch will sell well because it's in a different category and has a unique selling point.
Switch has the software.. Most people I know who have a switch don't care about "on the go", but love their games.
@Mr-Dude, there was an article earlier that stated that only 20% of Nintendo switch owners play with the Switch docked at least 80% of the time. You may not be interested in handheld or tabletop mode now but you may be quickly realize how convenient it is. And if not, well you'll be in the 20%.
Haters gunna hate
Just being a realist. I own a Pro because I wanted games to look as good on my platform of choice as they can be. Just like anyone planning on buying a One X. But, you shouldn't kid yourself into thinking that casual gamers are gonna drop that kind of money on a console. Maybe after price drops but not at full price.
Delusnions will be delusions.
Not this generation
Easily one of the dumbest articles by far. Microsoft can't retake a lead it never had in the first place.
It won't take the lead but it definitely improves the Xbox's image dramatically. That will also help with sales. It still has a chance to catch up or come close. This gen won't be over for another 3 years. The only thing PS4 has on the Xbox One is first party games. Xbox has better services like EA Access and Game Pass, PS Now is a joke compared to those, its almost a scam really. Better online infrastructure, Player created tournaments, Xbox play anywhere, cross play with Switch, Backwards compatibility, built-in streaming, cloud storage for save files, 4K UHD which will become an even bigger selling point by next year when the majority of people have adopted 4K. PUBG will also help sell systems.
PS4 had crossplay first with games like FF XIV and has play anywhere between PS3, PS4 and Vita for awhile. Those services don't change the fact that PS4 has significantly more games to play. Its a GAME system, so Xbox has their priorities wrong when that is the last thing they are concentrating on. Other than 4k gaming all those features have been around for while now and NOTHING has changed. Why would those features tip the scale now?! Xbox has won what 2-3 months in 4 YEARS of sales. Let that sink in.
@Chevalier "Xbox has won what 2-3 months in 4 YEARS of sales" if we're talking worldwide, NO, the xbone never won a month this gen. any deficit the PS4 had monthly in NA is easily overturned by sales from other countries by several folds. the PS4 is over 30mil units ahead for a reason
Xbox One does have good exclusives though (the ones that weren't cancelled anyway--yes, Scalebound is still a sore spot for me). It had a couple of disappointing ones, sure, but I really enjoyed Ori, Sunset Overdrive, and Forza Horizon 2. Let's not say Xbox One doesn't have great exclusives. It does. For me (and maybe many others), it just doesn't have them in spades like PS4 does. But to be fair, Sony is just godly when it comes to that kind of thing. E3 was mediocre, but PGW was something else. For the record though, I agree. Xbox One X is not going to help Microsoft retake the lead (they never had it) UNLESS One X stands in as their device for a while and skips the next generation where they'll be competing with PS5 and Sony just stops selling PS4. Microsoft seems to be the first to have moved onto subscription numbers as opposed to hardware sales, so it's certainly possible. What we don't know is what Sony's plans are.
PlayStation has a handful of great titles. So does xbox. That's real for me at least
Absolutely. It would take two things to get them into the lead again, things which may never happen again and which luckily for Sony both did in 2013. The first is that MS has to release a truly new generation of hardware. The second is that Sony also has to release a new generation of hardware at the same time. Only by resetting both platforms to zero is there a chance MS can catch up. People like to point out that PS3 eventually caught up to XB360, but that's because Sony has the global market tied down. Xbox does not. Even with XB1X there is no way that can even catch up let alone take the lead.
SONY IS DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMED!!!!!!!! 111 1
That will definitely be the media’s cry for the next year. Yay! 2005 all over again.
I think he is being sarcastic. Haha
Doomed to have amazing Exclusives and being number one this gen What a terrible curse /s
What's doomed is my wallet, with all these upcoming Sony exclusives.
Only 450 billion dollars behind Microsoft....but they can do it
450 billion more dollars, yet they're still struggling to make Xbox exclusives. Sad!
By your optics, XOX is better because ms is wealthy, what?!?! You have a serious problem when you look at someone richer than you. I think there are some kind of treatment for your case.
LMAO!! WOW you believe that...?? Let's see who sells more during the Holidays
they will gain ground, probably, but they are too far behind to take the lead.
This far into the gen, it is not about units sold on an existing gen.. it’s about install growth. Since they are down 12 million vs 2010... they will only hide behind pr spins. They are so far down from their own numbers, there is nothing to compare to Sony’s numbers
MS won't reveal their hardware sales. That because MS afraid being humiliated.
Hey you remember the spin about xb1s 'best selling console' adverts last year? You ll see the same spin even if they sell more just on launch. It will be all over the news if they do a few good months.
They won't even gain ground. Look very closely at how the math works,. They'd have to outsell the PS4, worldwide, for months, and months, on end. Gaining ground means just that, not outselling the PS4, in just a few territories, during a packed holiday season only.
Notice media "Only" announce X1X sales during Christmas holidays, or Black Friday sales. rest of the year is dried, nothing is heard unless MS pay n4g editor to promote lies. ..... When, what year was Xbox in the Lead??? they still using that classic lie to promote sales.
How will it gain ground, are people like you ignorant to the fact it would have to outsell the OG PS4 not just the Pro for it to gain ground........I'l spell it out for you, NONE of the mid gen upgraded consoles will outsell the OG PS4 on a month to month basis. The OG PS4 is better value for money at a more affordable price and has a larger games collection of games, its simple maths, causal console buyers go for value for money not resolution count.
It's mostly Xbox owners who will upgrade. Probably like the Pro, but it won't get anywhere near Playstation sales, or exclusives.
Wow, even gaining ground is unacceptable now? Sony fans are high on their own group think dopamine rush.
How much LOST ground was their on Xbone sales the last 9 months with the looming X too? Its just common sense when you take the time to think about it for 2 seconds.
Crazy talk... New exclusive ip plus hardware may help but Europe and Asia are too far in Sony camp to be taken this gen
After the next E3 ask me again.
It's already too late. MS can't take it back.
Is what you fanboys say year in year out. Yet nothing has changed. I'll be looking forward to psx
The hell you say.
***may*** be the straw that broke the camels back too...
Yup if they cant recoup the money they are spending on advertisements articles and celebrities.
+ rd on the "beast" couldnt have been cheap
The lead? they are in far away 3rd place and the X will make them get to the lead. In what videogaming World?
Don't fool yourself all gamers.com Is this going to be one of those "between the days of November 12 and November 21, Xbox outsold PlayStation." While excluding the rest of the year? Come on!
retake the lead? They never had it
Not at that price - it'll sell well due to the marketing push but has no incentive for most to upgrade. It's like the Pro, not worth the extra pixels when I can have a similar experience on the standard machine. I say that as someone who bought the Pro.
If they bring some good exclusives they can definitely shorten the gap. Not take the lead
Bringing good exclusives wouldn't be enough, either. The gap's not changing. The generation is lost and Xbox doesn't have the worldwide appeal to get the job done.
Wow, no it can't. I bought one and its a fine console, however, I know what i was buying. A 4K upgrade to my EXISTING library. I still know that the exclusives will sell the console (PS4, and Switch) better. I saw a bunch at Target, Walmart, and even amazon (Scorpio editions included). The reason isn't the price, its what you don't get when you buy it. I am amazed how good Halo 5 looks in 4k, and how good Gears does, however. I want new IPs worth playing along the lines of The last of us, Horizon, Infamous, God of War, etc. I am giving Microsoft the benefit of the doubt, but i am concerned the original xbox one (s) will hold back the X because the game has to work on BOTH platforms, imagine if it didnt however, what they could do with this machine.
Retake the lead? First of all, xbox was never in the lead to begin with so there's nothing to retake. Second of all, xbox taking the lead when It's 40m units behind? Really? Who the heck writes this stuff?
Allgamers.com should be arrested they just killed me with this article and their credibility
LOL, just stop.
This article is painful to read, mainly because the author truly thinks that power is the main reason the PS4 has the commanding lead that it does. On top of that, Microsoft hasn't ever won a generation, and thus, hasn't ever been on top. And this is why the console has many of the critics that it does. Instead of just being a better machine than the Pro, it has to be accompanied by these continuous hyperbolic statements. Since it seems to fly over heads - I've got the simple best explanation: The Xbox One X won't ever help Microsoft "take any leads" and most multiplatform games (if not all) will continue to sell better on PS4. It's as simple as that. Stop looking for "changing tides", because once that fails, it will be only the faults of hyper-fanatics that people will be pointing and laughing. Just as they did when many Xbox fans and supporters claimed the Kinect was a game changer.
There's no lead to take. It's about maximizing profit and getting the best out of the products potential.
people must have flunked history class or something if that was the case the og xbox should have beaten ps2 but instead the ps2 trounced the og xbox
As PS4 owner I am not losing sleep over it. I'm happy MS had a successful launch. The worst thing that can ever happen to Sony is for them to become complacent. It's great that Switch and X are doing well, not only for their fans and supporters, but for Sony and the industry in general. It's much more difficult to be on top and stay on top. You need a constant reminder that you may lose that top spot at any moment and have to completely change your strategy. Personally I'm looking forward to Playstation Experience next month and a release date for God of War. Who knows what else Sony will unveil. Maybe nothing. I'm happy with the current known, upcoming roster of first party games.
*reads title of article... Lol
Of course not
"retake the lead" you need to lay of the crackdown
LOL not in a million years!
"Retake" intimates that they once had a lead, lost it, and could take it once again. The XB1 was never in front at any point in time. When all is said and done, the Switch will be in 2nd with the XB1(X) in 3rd. Not to mention, MS is hoping for 1 XB1X sold for every 5 regular XB1's. They aren't going to make up a 35 million gap like that.
Here's some other headlines - PS4 pro could lead to a massive surge in 4k TV sales. - PC gaming could go the way of the Dinosaur in the future -Could the Wii U come back from the dead
Certainly possible. There is no power greater than X.
Y and Z > X
