    IF you have a 4K HDR tv & need 4K HDR, then go X

    Ungraded from a One Elite counsel to the X. (TV4K HDR Sony XBR) All games were digital copies no discs involved. The X does seem to load a little quicker, but not $500 quicker. It does upscale all games to 4K. Can you tell the difference in a non optimized games. No they look exactly the same, if there's a difference I can't tell. There is a list on the XBox website that tell you what games are Enhanced for the X and what games are in the works. So I picked up Forza 7 and CoD WW2. Those are games made native at 4K HDR , not upgraded to 4K. Forza looks INSANE!!! You can see the shadows from the grain in the leather on the "A" Pillar in the Porsche move in real time !! The red stitching in the dashboard leather!! CoD also looks great, but not as high res as Forza. HDR looks good but initially everything looks darker, because HDR allows Full black right next to brighter colors. So need to get used to that. The X is very quiet and the Air is drawn in thru the sides and pushed out though the lower back. Blows very warm air but nothing I would call HOT. All of your One, and One S accessories will carry over, (NOTE this counsel ONLY comes with a controller, power cord, and HDMI cable. IT DOES NOT COME WITH A MIC) if all of your games are on an external HDD its almost plug and play. If you have a "One", You get the FULL 4K HDR upgrades, 4K BluRay HDR, and Native 4K HDR game capability. If you already own an "S" then you only gain native 4K gaming. The counsel size is almost identical to the S. If you have a 4K TV AND it's HDR capable, then you will see visual improvements in games that are "ENHANCED for the One X". Games not enhanced will look and feel virtually identical to a One S counsel. According to Msft the X is meant to be a bigger brother to the S, not a replacement. So if your Happy with you S. I would recommend saving your $$$ until more goes are native 4K and you also have a 4K HDR set to take advantage of them. Almost forgot, the X only comes with a 1TB HDD. 4K games are HUGE !!! Forza 7was over 100GB to DL the Ultimate Edition. CoD WW2 was around 7GB. I have Full DL of the following games and my HDD is 49.2% full. Forza 7, Cod WW2 (Dig Deluxe Ed), Halo Master Chief Col., RB6 Siege, CoD Infinite Warfare, Cod MW Remastered. Yeah if only 396.1GB is free we are over 50% full but apparently the OS is huge if 396 is considered 51% of whats avail to me. That roughly means my space total avail is sliver over 800GB.and the OS is close to 200GB !!! WOW!! Get a few map packs and such and space could get tight quick. Thankfully you can always all an ext HDD later. I would have stayed with my One Elite and been completely happy with it and saved the $500. But I got $XXX for my birthday and Christmas so gifting my Elite to my nieces for "MineCraft" duty.

    Great console, but not worth the extra $

    I bought this console to replace a One S I had bought back in March to utilize the HDR capabilities of my 2016 Vizio M Series 4K TV. The difference HDR makes in gaming and movies is breathtaking and I was very pleased with the One S, having upgraded form a launch XBox. After mulling over the decision to upgrade the visuals a bit further to HDR AND 4K, I finally decided to spring for the One X and plunge into true 4K gaming. This machine is a BEAST, but I must say that the difference in visuals, while noticeable, is not as drastic as the leap from SDR to HDR. For the additional $300 dollars I find it hard to justify the upgrade. The increased visual fidelity is nice, but without switching from the One X to the One S and back to compare, I didn't find my experience actually playing the games to be much different. If you've got $500 dollars burning a hole in your pocket and a 4K HDR TV that will make this console sing, go for it. It just didn't make enough of a difference for me to justify the $300 difference. I'm going to return the One X, and continue enjoying my One S until they start either making One X exclusives, they cut the price, or move on to the next generation console.

    Best console for 3rd party games

    This console is great for multiplatform games. Coming from a PS4 Pro and having never owned an Xbox before there are a few hidden gems worth playing on this systems eco system. That said, the one thing this console lacks as far a new games goes is exclusives(and I don't mean Halo, Forza, and Gears of War). While I am enjoying GOW4 im not really into Forza or Halo which leaves me with nothing else to play other than newer 3rd party games and some old BC titles. PS4 has exclusives such as BloodBorne, Horizon Zero Dawn, The Last of Us 1 & 2, Nier, Nioh, MLB 17, Infamous, Spider Man, God Of War and many more that the Xbox simply can't compete with. However, the fact of the matter is that 3rd party games are what we end up playing/spending the most money on and that is where the power of the Xbox One X is used best. Also Microsoft has taken the power of the One X further by enhancing old 360/Xbox games for FREE WHICH THEY DON'T HAVE TO DO and is a fantastic use of its power and sony could learn from them in this regard. Games like Assasins Creed Origins, Rise of the Tomb Raider and almost all 3rd party simply look/play better on the Xbox One X than on the PS4 Pro wether you have a 4K/HDR TV or a 1080P TV and this trend will continue for the rest of this console generation until the PS5 comes out. This console is worth it if you are already heavily invested into the Xbox Ecosystem or if you want the best looking 3rd party games so make sure you are conscientious of this before purchasing.Lastly, the included 4K UHD Blu Ray drive is FANTASTIC and is the reason why it the console costs $100 more than the PS4 Pro(which I would have paid extra for to have since it is a must have on a 4K/HDR and streaming just does not compare.)

    Pros and Cons of this Console

    Hi everybody! I am going to be commenting on what I like and don't like about the upcoming Xbox One X console. It's unfair to say what I don't like, considering that the "likes" outweigh the "dislikes". I have always been a console gamer. I do have a few games on my PC, but I do like the advantage of console gaming. All I have to do is put the disc in the tray and press start. I know that it will run it each and every time without having to worry about system requirements and whether or not my hardware is powerful enough to run the games I want to play. That is a big pro to any console out there. Not just the XBox One X. I think that's one of the big reasons that people choose to be console gamers. The graphics may look better on PC, but it's nice that Microsoft is releasing the XBOX One X so that console gamers can have close to the same graphic beauty as a PC player. It definitely makes me happy. I also like the fact that there is a 4K Blu-Ray player in the XBox One X. There is one in the S model as well. I don't know what Sony was thinking when they left it out of the Playstation 4 Pro. The only thing I can think of that would be a con to this system is the 1tb Hard Drive. Not so much the space, considering that I have a 5tb external hard drive that I would be plugging into it to use, but the fact that it's a standard Hard Drive. The XBOX One Elite that came out a few years back had a SSD drive in it, I do believe. They called it a Hybrid Drive. Not sure if there's a big difference or not. But I know it ran a lot quieter on the Elite than it did on the standard XBox One consoles. Probably less moving parts. I dunno. Anyway, that's really all I wanted to say about it. I am really looking forward to November. Can't get here fast enough.

    Powerful Console!

    I've been a dedicated Playstation owner since 1996. However, I recently decided that it was time to upgrade my gaming console to get better textures and smoother images. Unfortunately, PS4 Pro just doesn't quite meet the competition with PC gaming and Xbox in terms of graphics. The Xbox One X promises and absolutely delivers noticeable increased power and absolutely stunning graphics in 4K, but also 1080p (I've tried using it on both tv platforms). However, there are some disappointing features that Xbox does not provide. (1) Controller comes with NON-rechargeable AA batteries. If you want rechargeable, you'll have to buy a recharge kit from Microsoft for $25. (2) I'm a fan of Playstation's option to put the console to sleep or to fully shut it down. With Sony, this choice doesn't require changing settings in the settings menu. XBOX these few seconds add up over time, and do disappoint. (3) Playstation store offers lower prices on all games, including cross-platform games. AND you're NOT required to have a Network Subscription to receive the discounts (Shame on you, Microsoft). (4) User interface is just not as clean and easy to navigate on the Xbox. (5) UNLIKE with the Playstation, Xbox also doesn't allow saved games to be backed up on flash drives. Instead, everything is backed up to a cloud server, which is obviously a way for Microsoft to control what gamers are able to do. TISK TISK In conclusion, if you're interested in getting amazing graphics without upgrading a PC GPU, well Xbox One X is a no-brainer. HOWEVER, if you want something just for casual gameplay and you're not bothered by image and gameplay quality, then Playstation is probably better.

    Great piece of entertainment, but is it needed?

    The Good: 1st off the graphics with a 4 K television is great, the speeds are fast for loading, and navigating through menus. I often find myself already loaded into the game before my teammates are a quarter of the way loaded. Some of that could be due to connection but hey, I'm enjoying it. The finish on the Xbox One X is nice, I enjoy that the brick is now internal, and I like the new external designs. Oh and not to mention the larger storage as well. Now the bad: The controller that comes with it is junk in my opinion, I have an Elite controller and other ones that are better. A week after my purchase Best Buy was giving away free games with Xbox one X purchases and I was told I didn't qualify for a free game (Lame). The Ugly: Well it's not too bad of a price actually, however with the lack of 4 K games right now, and no extra features online, there is no real reason to get this system unless you want that high resolution or you're a professional gamer who needs to have every advantage over the other players (self-defeating in my opinion). I just don't feel it's that worth the price tag at the moment. Will I game on this instead of my other Xbox One.... well duh, but for those who are on the fence about buying one, you might want to consider waiting at this point. At least until they get a few more games or perks to go with it. If they included a free game or choice or even just an Elite controller I would say this is 100% worth it. Until then, maybe wait. Hope I helped.

    Powerful and Crisp

    Posted
    Scott

    This is a nice upgrade from my first gen Xbox one. I was playing on an actual 40 inch 4k Monitor not a TV. But the crisp colorful video was an instant upgrade from the old one. Madden 18 loaded into a game from franchise FAR FASTER than my old box. The old one would show goals for all the top guys at least 2 times this one loaded up before I could see more than 3 or so team goals. The controller was a upgrade for me also, I had the old controller that are slick and prone to sweating and slipping in the hands. The new controller is textured very nicely and feels great, an upgrade there also. I am not sure if there is a 4k upgrade for Madden 18 out there I didn't check so I couldn't really judge the hype on 4k. But at 1080p on a 40inch 4k Phillips monitor it is improvement and beautiful graphics. The game was far smoother also! I am glad I upgraded from my old console and it was worth it. I do not play a lot of games at once but I believe the first 24 hours owning the X shows it will be a tremendously lot of fun playing with this console for the next several years. There is only good stuff coming early next year in 4k enhanced games that look like they are going to rock the Xbox One X. If you are on the fence go for this one.

    Everything bout the Xbox X (Scorpio) is amazing, starting up the box you're already exposed to a specialized intro that just looks cool! I decided to try out a few games, first off with Smite to see how it compares to the regular xbox one and the feeling is incredible. Everything feels smooth, fast, I found myself playing more efficiently within minutes of testing the game out. And for more research i had my brother -a fellow beta tester- and my uncle -who is a few months into smite- to test out for themselves and they both recognize the notable change in performance from just one game! The physical console itself is great, big fan of how it was modeled and removing that tedious brick was a bonus. This console deserves the 5 star rating, unfortunately the tv i purchased years back does not support 4k at all so I'm unable to use the xbox one x to its full potential, but this a strong 4/5 and those who truly respect gaming needs to buy this.

    Great console. It's smaller, but heavier than my original Xbox One, which I'd consider is a good thing. It's also much quieter. I've only played forza 7 so far and it looks amazing on my 4K t.v. Load times are a little bit faster too compared to the Xbox One. I also like that you can put all your games on an external HD and they're ready to play and don't need to be installed. I've only had a couple issues since owning it. First issue was my controller lost connection. The xbox button on the controller was still lit up, but nothing was working. Had to take the battery pack out and put it back in to get it to connect. Second issue is I've had it kick me back to the home screen while it's loading a track on forza or backing out the main menu in the game. Not horrible issues just annoying at times. It's a great console and would definitely recommend it.

    First true 4k gaming console

    If you're thinking about buying the $500 xbox one x you probably already know all about it. By far the most powerful home gaming console ever. Plays 4k blurays (but so does the xbox one s). Playstation Pro doesn't play 4k blurays and isn't powerful enough for true 4k gaming like the X. How noticable is the difference? Well... Your mom for sure won't see the difference in games. Maybe the HDR and 4k in movies is a recognisable improvement but it's not as drastic of an improvement as the jump from standard def on a crt to 1080p on a flat screen.You really can't buy a gaming pc that can do 4k for $500 though so this thing is a great deal for the money but you kinda have to be a techie to get it. Cons? Wont play 4k blurays out of the box. You have to download the xbox bluray app ajd adjust your tv settings which can be a bit of a pain. Not all games are 4k or have a 4k update.

    Great IF You Have A 4K TV And Play HDR Games

    The Xbox One X console is certainly a powerhouse! The new Xbox One X enhanced games like Forza 7, Madden 18 and FIFA 18 look absolutely incredible on a 4K TV with HDR! This is the true selling feature of the console. As far as load times being shortened, I have not experienced that at all. It truly appears games load in the same amount of time as the Xbox One S I had. Now, if you don't have a 4K TV or you have an older 4K model without HDR, I'm not sure I would recommend this console. In addition, I didn't see any visual improvement when playing the non HDR enhanced titles (Rocket League, Ghost Recon, etc.). Many of these titles eventually will get HDR enhance updates, but I think it's important to know these about these games before making a decision. Myself, I'm pretty pleased with my purchase but I can't give it five stars until there are more enhanced games.

    Better CPU and Storage

    Today, I game on the Xbox one and the Xbox one X, so I feel that I have a good comparison between the two. Both are great boxes and worthy of consideration depending on budget and need. The first thing that was noticeable on the Xbox one X was that it was missing the polished features of the Xbox one. Love the Xbox one with its non-mechanical power button. Feel that is one feature the Xbox one X should have kept but didn’t. The CPU and storage are better on the X, but unless your game and TV can take advantage of the better GPU, this doesn’t feel like much of an upgrade, especially for the money spent. Still, the Xbox one X is a great way to future proof and if your old games needed better CPU or if you need more storage, this is a great solution.

    Basically if you already own a Xbox One and don't really want high end graphics when playing, then this is not for you even stated by Phill himself. This is not a new console, but more lan upgrade that won't have exclusives and the same games will be able to be played on Xbox One and Xbox One S as well. It's a powerful console, but that's all you are buying here, is it's power. It's for someone that wants an upgrade or someone that hasn't bought an Xbox One yet. Also keep in mind not all games will feature 4K, they will have to be patched and supported by the developers first. Do your research before buying, to make sure this is something you want. One con is it only has a 1TB HDD, even if it supports external HDDs. 1TB is still not enough especially if you are pushing a 4K console. So add that extra money for more HDD space, if you don't already own one.

    So I've had the Forza 6 Edition Xbox One playing on my 2016 Vizio P Series for past year and half now. Vizio is a 65" 4k with Dolby vision, HDR 10 etc.. Everything looked great upscaling to 4k before. I bought this expecting it to blow me away and take full advantage of my 4k display with native 4k gaming... Honestly it's not that special. Maybe it's because my tv looked awesome already, I just wasn't amazed. Don't get me wrong, its a phenomenal deal for what it is, I just wish it was something more. Also note the hard drive could be bigger as 1TB is not much with today's standards. Actually on here to order a 2TB external HD. Overall, is it an awesome system for a great price? Yes Is it mind blowing? No

    I bought the Xbox One X for a variety of reasons. Gaming, Entertainment, and Communication. Although the Kinect seems to be getting phased out, it is amazing that there is no real voice control integrated into the X Box One X. So in the year where Alexa and Google seem to be getting ahead of Siri and Cortana... why was a camera/mic not added as standard for the X Box One X? Also the 4K settings do not seem to be compatible with my 4K TV. Although the video output is still pretty good, this was one of the main reasons for bumping up to the One X. Why 4 stars? The gaming is amazing and the One X does amazing at streaming... The family is happy that it fulfilled the reason for buying it... just wish that when it came to speaking to loved ones, we didn't have to go to the room with our old Xbox.

    I picked one up on 12/14/2017. To be honest it does look good but is it worth the $500 price tag? I really don't think so. I think the game being so new and developers not having a full year to develop for it leaves a lot to be desired from the console. I am using it on a brand new 4k TV but it just is not where I would think we would be from a graphics standpoint with video games. I was thinking that it would be closer to what we see in some of the high quality animated movies but it is not there yet. Is the power there to do graphics in that way? Yes, but at this point and time developers just have not had it long enough to push the limits of what it is capable of. Many have said go for the Xbox One S instead and I would agree with that until developers show that this system is worth the $500 upgrade.

    Don't get me wrong, the XBOX ONE X is a good system. Especially when paired with XBOX Line Gold and the XBOX Game Pass services. But sadly I've noticed quite a few spots in games where frame rates drop to a crawl when gaming in 4k. This was really surprising for a systems that's suppose to be the worlds fastest console. I really really love the 360 backwards compatibility as I was able to play many of the games I'd purchased in the past. Playing my older 360 games on the ONE X was a tremendously great experience. The titles run super smooth and look beautiful. No frame rate problems out of the backwards compatible games at all. I'm not upset I bought the ONE X but I am a little disappointed that many of the same title runs better on the PS4 Pro than on the ONE X.

    Always been a Playstation guy but their lack of 4k movie playback finally swayed me. So I bought the OneX. Amazing. I think I picked the right time to switch because the all around Xbox experience I believe is a little better. (it pains me to admit this.) One problem though. This thing has a horrible issue with connecting with wifi at times. Yes I trouble shooter'd it till my brain hurt and I found the problem. You have to keep resetting the MAC address on the Xbox. This breaks down to a firmware issue not an issue with my or anyone else's wifi. Once they update and fix that (hopefully not a hardware problem) this will be as close to a perfect unit as you can get...

    I played Xbox on the One S platform because that is the one my roommate had. When he moved out I decided I would get my own but by this time the One X had been released. The high price point was my main reason for hesitation (the reason I am giving 4 out of 5 stars) but, after much research, I decided to get the One X. With the advancements of technology it doesn't make sense to invest in older tech. While the One X isn't being put to full use...yet, it has the technology for where everything is going. After using it I can see the upgrade in graphics but the main thing I notice is in processing times. Loading time for games is cut in half. So I am happy with the purchase.

    The Xb1x is an awesome machine and the visuals are stunning. The upscaling actually works and the overall speed of the machine is outstanding. There is one concern that I have. Why did they downgrade the storage of the machine? We went from 500g/Xb1 which I currently own to 2tb with the S and back to 1tb/Xb1X the most powerful console on the market today. I have all three and it doesn't make sense to me especially with the games becoming larger in size. Ex. DVD, Blue Ray and now ultra disc.The graphics demand more storage and will use that drive quickly.......I would have given it a ten but without the 4tb that I feel should have been placed in this console we will settle for the 4 star rating.
