    Let's get this out of the way, this is still a console, and it won't give you the same gaming experience that a high end gaming PC will. That being said, no gaming PC priced under 750$ is going to be able to run modern games at 4k, much less play 4k Blu-rays, and even PCs priced under 1000 are going to be limited in the 4k department, unless you're a builder who knows how to find parts cheap. If you've got better things to do than fiddle around with PC settings, on a budget, or just don't game enough to justify a 1000$+ rig, but still want to make the most of your new 4k TV, this is the best choice for you. 4k Blu-rays: There's not much to say here, it has a 4k Blu-ray player, and it will play them back in 4k/HDR10. You'll have to install the free Blu-ray app from the Xbox store, but I can't complain about it too much. Only real downside in this department is a lack of settings to fix audio lag, but most TVs and receivers that you'll be plugging this thing into will already have those settings anyways, so it's not a big deal. 4k/HDR gaming: This is the feature that sets the X above its less expensive sibling (the S), which also has a 4k Blu-ray player. The 4k resolution's impact on gameplay is subjective, as most games don't have a huge difference outside of more crisp edges and some antialiasing improvements, but the real game changer is the HDR, and good Gandhi does it change your experience. Keep in mind, I have a Samsung MU8000, so your model of TV may produce difference experiences from mine... But on my TV, the HDR is incredible. Colors are more vibrant, blacks are deeper, whites are brighter, but more importantly... The details stick around. In both bright and dark spots, rather than creating black and white "blobs". This feature has ruined me forever, and it's hard to go back to SDR now that I've seen how amazing it can be. Keep in mind, not all games support 4k/HDR, but the library is pretty big, and it keeps growing, with most big games having 4k/HDR updates. Don't have a 4k TV? If you don't have a 4k TV, I would still recommend this for a few reasons. For one thing, even if you're running a 1080p TV, the extra power under the hood will be dedicated to running the game smoother, with most games hanging out around the 60fps mark. You're going to notice a big improvement in game performance, in fact I run many games in 1080p with HDR just to get those 60 frames. Also, in some cases, games will have better graphics than the standard Xbox one or Xbox one S. A good example of this is Ark survival evolved and the Xbox one X only "enhanced graphics" mode. Another benefit you get even without 4k is some degree of future proofing yourself. 4k Blu-rays will play in 1080p if not hooked up to a newer 4k tv, so you can start stocking up on your media before you decide to invest in a 4k TV. Another great thing about this console is its size, and how quiet it is. It's not only tiny, but thanks to it's vapor chamber cooling system, it's almost silent. The only time I ever hear three thing is if I leave it running in game, and everything in my apartment is dead silent, and even then it's just a light pulsing hum. Bottom line: Contrary to what the PC master race knobjobs will tell you, this is a fantastic piece of hardware, and will give you a gaming experience that similarly priced PCs can only dream of. If you don't care about the 4k HDR gaming, or boost in game performance, and you just want a 4k Blu-ray player, save yourself a few bucks and get yourself the S, which also has a 4k Blu-ray player.

      Hey Jake,

      Thanks for your thoughtful evaluation of your new Xbox One X! You made a great point in calling attention to how versatile it is -- it's powerful enough to play games in true 4K with fast framerates and load times while also being a good 4K UHD Blu-ray player. And we agree, people who haven't upgraded to a 4K TV yet will still see big benefits in their overall gameplay experience.

      We hope you get a lot of use out of your new Xbox One X.

      Happy gaming,
      Chuck

    Original Review: November 9, 2017 I love it. It’s taking its place over my PS4 Pro in the first HDMI slot that’s for sure. I’m pretty sure you already know what the Xbox One X does otherwise you wouldn’t be here. Project Scorpio Edition is that same Xbox One X console just with a pretty coat of paint. It has polka dots on the top and goes to a gray color tone. The X really does look good with the black and hint of green lettering on the front. This is a dense system very heavy but not difficult to move; You can tell Microsoft put their heart and soul into this product. The system has a lot of power in it and perfect for showcasing your 4K TV. Xbox One X is quick with the UI and it does open apps insanely fast. 4K HDR looks phenomenal Gears 4 and Forza 7 really shine on the system just wish they had more new first party games that took advantage of the system at release. The family loves using it and they love the 4K Blu-ray built in. In my opinion, it really is and remain an all in one box; that was Microsoft vision and I believe they promised on that. $500 is a steep price to pay at first but I feel like the investment and value is there just not “unlocked” And the X is sure to come down in price with retailers in the next 6 months. Xbox 360 games look better but don’t expect a massive improvement. All in all, it’s the perfect streaming box and the most powerful console in the world right now. Spend the extra cash on the Xbox One X and have it all. (Note: Get an external hard drive. It is a MUST. No really, AAA games now take up nearly 100GB of space or more. I get it with the massive 4K textures but this takes the cake. I now have 214GB left from the 1 TB and keep in mind that not all of these are UHD games but imagine 1-2 years from now. 1TB is not going to cut it.) Update 11/23/17: I’m already out of hard drive space not even a month away. So yeah I would highly recommend a 2 - 8 TB HDD if you certainly going to download a lot of games. Destiny 2 will get a 4K HDR patch next month. As it stands it’s 33 GB, the 4K textures on this game are going to be massive I’m sure. I notice someone else said you shouldn’t be shocked by games eating up space and questions people if they are gamers who are stunned by this. That is beside the point, I’m not “shocked” by the space being so overblown. I’m simply pointing out that these companies can’t get away with such small storage for much longer going forward and for YOU to get an HDD as soon as possible. They are already working on improvements to how storage is handled. For example, Devs can cut out things that don’t matter to the local country games and giving you the option deselect language packs. This is what is needed going forward and at least glad they are going to do something and I’m proud of that. Update 2/28/2018: Mircosoft has remained to deliver promises on the Xbox One X. The system is stellar and has a strong lineup of games. The monthly pass service is on $10 a month and well on its way to being the Netflix of gaming. There is an App for PC that allows to the streaming from Xbox...and an iOS app called OneCast which works amazing. this is by far my favorite system since the Sega Genesis and the Dreamcast. Keep up the great work Microsoft.

      Hey there,

      Thank you for the very thorough review of Xbox One X! We're glad to hear that you're still enjoying it now as much as when you first got it. And good call on the recommendation to invest in an external hard drive if you plan on installing a lot of games -- it'll definitely come in handy in the long run. We hope you continue to have a lot of with it!

    The X Box One X is one of a kind. You will feel fully immersed in the game as you play. With 4K resolution, the colors are brighter, whites appear whiter, blacks appear blacker with great contrast, and you can see differences in detail that truly bring the image and experience to life. I raced cars with the X Box One X and could see even the tiniest detail, such as the reflection on the car windows that made it even more realistic. If you don’t have a 4K resolution TV, the X Box will conform to 1080P resolution or lower to still give you that amazing experience and bring out the most from whatever resolution you have. At 2.3 GHz, the game can bring you even faster and smoother response times and interactions that feels almost life-like. You will even notice that the games load even quicker. With 12 GB memory you will be able to quickly load your games and experience even greater performance. As I was playing I even noticed that the animations were extremely realistic, from the lighting to the people animations, everything was crystal clear and realistic. The gaming momentum is so quick, that it can reach up to 326 GB per second which is so seamless you will notice the difference between other gaming platforms. What I love most is how great the design is. It has a rich black color, is slim and sleek. It is super innovative and stylish. Now you can pick up your 4K (2160P) games and truly experience them the way they were meant to be experienced. The contrast really comes out with games, offering you greater visual depth. I definitely recommend picking up X box one X enhanced game to experience gaming better than ever. Driving the Forza 7 motorsport game I was able to immerse myself into the game. It feels as if you are really driving a car. The crashes, the movements, the sounds, the lighting, the feel with the controller was all extremely realistic. Dolby Atams and DTS:X offers 3D spatial sound that really puts you in the center of it. You will experience sound as if you are in a 3D Imax movie. The crashes really come alive from the sound and imagery. It is definitely worth splurging on this product for the experience. It is an experience like none before. Add the Microsoft x box x wireless controller, or even the Winter Forces special edition, to enhance your experience. This controller is for the ultimate gamer. The wireless controller offers amazing control as you play the game. The controller is unique and has a super cool color scheme, which is Arctic Camouflage. It functions just like the xbox one x controller, but has a unique look and is wireless. It is amazing quality, with a textured grip, button mapping, and smooth feel. What I like most is that it has Bluetooth technology, so I can move around without worrying about the cord bumping into anything. It even includes 3.55 mm stereo headjack set to connect to any compatible audio headset. With Bluetooth technology, you can play with any PC windows 10 or tablets. My younger brother loves xbox and is super excited to play with this one and by having the wireless controller my parents won’t have to worry about wear and tear, and tangling of his current controller. My brother and his friend are pretty energetic, so they tend to move around a lot and tangle up the controllers. It seems like the life span of this controller will be much greater and they will have twice the distance to move around. This Xbox is a must for any gamer, and even a beginner. I do not play much, but l. With speed and reliability, you can compete, share and connect with others. Purchase Xbox Live Gold and you can get 2-4 games per month! For someone who doesn't have a ton of experience gaming, I loved this console and found it easy to navigate and learn. As you move the throttles, the motion in the game is smooth and not jerky. As you push the throttle faster, it will move the object faster as intended. Very easy for a beginner! You can even join Xbox Live and join the xbox network It is definitely worth the price, and worth it to splurge on this to get the best quality around. I...

    A Product Worth Appreciating

    Posted
    CapMax

    I've tried to be a PC gamer before but consoles have won me in the last few years as a cheaper and fun way to enjoy games. I chose PS4 as my first PlayStation buy ever a few years ago, and it has been a most valuable purchase of mine. One must admit that the content for PS4 is really competitive and that the system is a slight step above the Xbox One. But nowadays, the Xbox One and even the PS4 are showing their age. I honestly think the Xbox One was underpowered when it came out, and today, evermore so. Microsoft finally comes to the fight and overcharges the heck out of the Xbox One with Xbox One X. I am talking about a system that really impresses. This system is finally ahead of its time, and should last at least a few strong years. I have only played COD WW2 on my One X but had been playing on my Xbox One S prior. I have a 4K tv in which to harness the benefits that both systems offer. Both systems play the game quite smoothly, but the One X has some features that constantly make me smile. Comparatively, the One X runs even smoother, runs in native 4k which is awesomely pleasing to look at, exhibits seamless draw distances, and loads everything quicker. Running around The Third Reich in Zombie mode with the One S, I'd notice that signs within the game have a fair ressolution. But on the One X it is like being there because the signs are perfectly crisp. More than that, they remain clear even at far distances. In the One S, I would walk up to a sign to read, and I could always notice the sign jump up in resolution as I got closer, eventually actually becoming readable, but still not even close to the fine detail that the One X's 4k was chugging out. Draw distance is something that bothers me in games. It destroys the realism when objects start popping up as the user approaches new areas in a game. It feels great to see stuff not only clear from far away, but hyper clear all together. The One X, was a hefty purchase for me, but it is truly a high quality machine. It's unquestionably more powerful than any console before it, and if you're someone who appreciates quality visuals, then the One X is going to really going to satisfy you.

    Microsoft Nailed The X - Beast of a Console!

    Microsoft really delivered on what they promised with this thing. It is whisper quiet and doesn't really get hot even under heavy play load so far. There will be no better console out there to play all of your Xbox games and all of the awesome multiplatform games that consume the majority of most game sales and gamer play time over the course of the year. Assassin's Creed Origins looks absolutely jaw dropping on this thing and plays best due to the much greater 12 GB memory and power to load the worlds more quickly (e.g. when returning from your eagle's viewpoint to your player's viewpoint) and show the detail more consistently during gameplay. I can't wait to play Star Wars Battlefront 2 on this thing, will be amazing too. And I can't even imagine what Red Dead Redemption 2 will look like next year on this thing, wow. Microsoft has gone all in on game updates to help games such as Halo 5 look unreal in native 4K 60FPS now too, and their efforts on backward compatibility have some 360 games such as Halo 3 looking unbelievable now too. Even their newly released backward compatible original Xbox games such as Crimson Skies and Knights of the Old Republic look and play great on this thing. This is worth every penny of the asking price compared to paying way more for a comparable PC that still requires a controller, likely 4K/HDR gaming monitor instead of the TV you already have or plan to get, and the overall ease of use of a console and access to the leading Xbox Live online network for multiplayer gaming and such too. Great job, enjoy ALL of your games looking and playing better on this thing.

    Most powerful gaming console ever

    I am really impressed with the Xbox One X. The first thing that struck me was how well the console was built. It's a little heavier than my PS4 but just feels like it is higher quality. The Xbox One X is a huge improvement over the Xbox One S or PS4. Virtually all multi-platform games run significantly better on the Xbox One X. Many games such as Red Dead Redemption 2 and Forza Horizon 4 run natively in 4K. This is something that no other console can do. In fact, this was previously only reserved for high end gaming PC's. There are advantages for those playing at 1080p as well. Many games will run with additional graphical detail at a full locked 60 fps in 1080. This is the absolute best console on the market for playing multi-platform games. Games like Call of Duty, Madden, NBA 2K, Battlefield, Doom, Red Dead Redemption will simply look better and run better on the Xbox One X. An additional benefit to Microsoft's platform is the backwards compatibility. My back catalog of the Xbox 360 games were immediately available for download and play on the One X. (Note: not all 360 games have been made compatible yet, but Microsoft is constantly releasing more) Last, one of the biggest complaints for Xbox One has been the lack of exclusives. I don't think this is completely valid. Microsoft has several awesome exclusives on the console including Halo 5, Gears of War 4, Halo Wars, Sunset Overdrive, Forza 7, Forza Horizon 4, Sea of Thieves, Quantum Break, Rare Replay, etc... In addition, they have several new exclusives coming out next year. Overall, I would highly recommend the Xbox One X to any gamer. It is the most powerful gaming console ever released.

      Thank you for agreeing that Xbox One X is the most powerful gaming console currently out. It's great to hear that you've had an opportunity to check out graphically intense games like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Forza Horizon 4 in true 4K running with steady frame rates. And extra thanks for recommending Xbox One X as the best console for playing multiplatform games.

    The best media/video game system out

    Posted
    theCrash
    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    I have a home theater with a 65" 4K HDR Samsung TV and Dolby Atmos surround sound system and have been waiting for the X since it was announced. I held off playing Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, and other exclusives completely until this thing came out and it was completely worth it. Although a little hesitant with that price tag, I decided to try it and if I didn't find it worthy I could always return. The X allows playing some older 360 games at 4K so the first game I tried was Assassin's Creed from 10 years ago. My mind was blown. It looks like a brand new game. I know you can do this my hooking up a powerful PC to a TV but being able to play it on an Xbox using the original 360 disc is one of the best customer-friendly features I've seen in a while. It makes me want to replay some of these 360 games. Onto the Xbox One enhanced games. I tried a few. Halo 5 looks awesome and is smoother and more detailed than ever, 4K and 60fps. Diablo 3 is running at a native 4K and is super sharp/smooth. Hitman plays great in 4K and HDR. This console proves 4K is a bigger deal than its been made out to be after HDR has released. Even though it bumps some games to 4K and/or 60fps with HDR, not all games are enhanced that way. Other games like Injustice 2 are enhanced visually (more details and better shadows, lighting, rendering) but with no large resolution bump. It still looks better than ever. If a game hasn't received an X update, it will still run with higher or more stable frame-rate than it ever has on the OG Xbox One or even the PS4 Pro. It will also load faster, Witcher 3 is at times a whopping 1 minute faster during load screens. A better experience regardless what game you are playing. After testing a few of the X-Enhanced games, I realized most of them I already played and am not keen on going back for visual upgrades so felt a slight disappointment. Then I remembered there are a good chunk of new releases I can really enjoy this console with: Injustice 2, Wolfenstein 2, Forza 7, Assassin's Creed Origins. The console has launched in the middle of the same old Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty, EA Shooter season so whoever is underwhelmed by those games may think "I'm going to buy an Xbox One to play those games? No way." To that I say, have some patience and remember that the following games are coming and will play best on this console: Red Dead 2, Kingdom Hearts 3, Monster Hunter World, State of Decay 2, Sea of Thieves, Cyberpunk 2077, Anthem, Far Cry 5, Metro Exodus, Kingdom Come, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Code Vein, Darksiders 3, A Way Out, Skull & Bones, and many more. Onto the machine itself. It's matte black, small, sleek and quiet. The controller is the best this generation for me, but the Elite Controller (sold separately) is on another level. I still am mind-boggled by the fact that so many people still use a controller without back paddles for shooter and 3rd person action games. Xbox One X is fantastic value for its cost. You cannot build a PC more powerful than this for the money and include a 4K blu-ray player as well. Bottom line: It looks phenomenal on my setup and I think it will give even 1080p TV's a huge boost. If you want the best graphics of for yesterday's, today's and tomorrow's games, you won't go wrong with the X. If you have my setup or something similar and are not sure yet if you should get it, just do it, you won't regret it.

    I've owned the XB1X for just a couple weeks and I'm lovin it!!! I was a PC gamer who entered console gaming with the Sega Genesis. From there I bought a PS1, PS2, and then jumped ship when SONY ditched backward compatibility. I bought a 360 and then a One AFTER backward compatibility came onboard and now I've purchased the X. FYI - I don't hate Sony—only Sony Fanboys :) Just saying if there's no backward compatibility then I'll buy whatever console looks good at the time. Keep backward compatibility and I'm a loyal customer even if the "other" console looks better. Reason is I still play Freelancer on my PC! I don't throw out old games that are good. I archive them and play them over and over. I'm still annoyed about not being able to play my old PS2 games since my PS2 died. So I only buy consoles with true backward compatibility and not Sony's rent old games you already own system. DON'T listen to Microsoft haters! The X is an amazing console and all those negative folks need to get over the fact that Microsoft put out an amazing product and actually cares about their fan base with features like FREE backward compatibility. Also, if you think the X is overpriced and the PS4 Pro is a good value you need to reevaluate. The price difference is $100. That's it. $399 for the Pro and $499 for the X. Isn't that worth NATIVE 4K (yes, the X does native 4K despite the lies PS4 fans spread), an additional 4 GB (12 GB total) of DDR5 memory at 108 GB/S faster than the Pro, 1.8 more teraflops than the Pro, faster CPU, AND a physical UHD player? All that for just $100 more and almost every review I read says the X is overpriced. The difference in hardware between the two is worth far more than $100 (Cheap UHD player alone is around $140) so if the X is overpriced then the Pro is over-priced too. Can't have it both ways folks! Let's keep a level playing field and not just say whatever we want to paint one console in a better light over the other. I also hear the X has an underpowered CPU. I never hear that about the PS4 Pro and the X has a more powerful CPU than the Pro. Seems like the gaming media LOVES anything PS does and questions anything Xbox does even if Xbox gets a win over PS. Hmm. Media bias??? I think so! BIG TIME. So throw out all the reviews, even mine, and go play the two in a store display (while we still have physical stores) and decide for yourself. Boils down to what YOU value most in gaming and not anything anyone else says or feels. What games do YOU like? What features do YOU like? Are YOU capable of streaming 4K movies where you live or would you rather buy physical media? Remember, you can stream 4K media with the XB1X too. The UHD optical drive just gives you OPTIONS that the PS4 Pro does not and, as a gamer, OPTIONS are extremely important to me. And IF you're type of the person who MUST have the "best" console or your feelings get hurt, then, right now it's the XB1X. Plain and simple. When the PS5 comes out the best console will be the PS5. And so forth and so on until consoles become self-aware and merge together to form one super-console to take over the world.

    However, after playing COD WWII on my One S and realizing that I wasn't unleashing the full potential of my LG OLED, I decided to pick this up. I don't regret my purchase but I will say that I think Microsoft is a little too early to "the game." The box itself is very quick (start-up, loading, etc) and responsive which is nice. But there aren't any exclusives, nor are there incentives for developers to put in the extra effort for 4k yet. Multiplayer has also proven to be laggy because these servers cannot handle processing 4k content yet. I was also disappointed that Microsoft decided against VR/MR. I was stoked at the prospect of flipping over my couch and shooting around corners in my living room and when they ignored it, I cancelled my pre-order. Microsoft had a huge opportunity to bring VR/MR into the mainstream and stick it to PS once and for all. But I knew all this going into the purchase so ultimately I was bummed but not swayed. If MS doesn't address this with an update next year, this will probably be my final Xbox and I will return to PS grudgingly. To me, 1 TB of memory is bush league as well when its $500 and 4k games could theoretically be 200 GB a piece. 2 TB should have been standard with a 4 TB premium option. Finally, I think MS has made a huge mistake by allowing cross-platform play with Windows. Essentially you can buy or build a computer with better graphics, processing, memory, VR/AR/MR, and know that you can upgrade it easily w/o voiding your warranty once a new technology comes along unlike an Xbox. Pros: 4k content, processing speed, boot times, works with all previous games, convenience, familiarity. Cons: Price, 1 TB hard drive, no VR/AR/MR, no exclusive 4k titles, no rechargeable controller (its 2017 MS! PS has had this since the PS3!), not future proof, heavy, laggy multiplayer. Overall, I know that it seems as though I am being negative about the device and I want it known that I'm not trying to be. There are just some obvious missed details that should have been addressed prior to release. I would say buy the console if you have a high end tv and enjoy gaming. If you don't have a nice 4k tv, I would say stick to the One S or you're just wasting your money. Be aware, content is slim right now so perhaps this may be a purchase that you might be better off holding out on until they finally release a VR headset or get some more content out to unleash its potential.

    Not going back to PS4

    Ok so it may seem extreme but I will be upfront, there are few PS4 exclusive titles for ME, that make it worthwhile to keep using my PS4. I purchased this for 4k capabilities and the added bonus of crossplay with a few titles that I can play with friends. PS4 and PS4 pro do not offer true 4k. And definitely does not offer crossplay... (I am sure we are all aware of #BlameSony at this point) The graphics are spectacular. I have a 50" 4k tv with HDR and this look awesome. The OS is really smooth 99% of the time... at times the store bugs out but that is all. Chatting, gaming and overall navigation is smooth. PS4 has a similar problem (you'd think they would want their stores to be the smoothest experience) Download speeds are insane. So my internet plan is 100/100 but PS4, wired caps at 50mbps downloading... if lucky. Xbox 1X uses the full 100mpbs when wired. I get 95-130 mbps. It is amazing to download an 50-90Gb game in an hour or less. Literally one of the most amazing things I have seen. (This is for a digital download from the Microsoft store. Discs are always fast) Side note: Game Pass is the best thing if you do not have an Xbox library. It gives you access to hundreds of games for just $10/month. I was skeptical before I box the Xbox, but coming in with no library, it really helps you while you are building your library.

    Xbox One X is God's Gift to Gaming

    Posted

    I've owned them all this generation. From the launch PS4 to the Fat Xbox One, to the Xbox One S and the PS4 Pro. When it comes to the two heavyweights in gaming... it's a non stop battle for supremacy. However, after a 12 round title fight, as the final second ticked away; Microsoft threw a Haymaker that landed and knocked Sony out. The Xbox One X is a superior console to the PS4 Pro in every way. Now, that's not to say that the Pro doesn't look great, have an amazing line up of games, or should be overlooked. However, if you want the best of what console gaming has to offer, Microsoft has the trump card. The PS4 Pro looks great on a 4K screen, but the power lacks the ability to customize your experience. The Xbox One X provides the opportunity to do so should the developer desire. (Prioritizing graphics vs frame rate) The PS4 Pro for some reason, unbeknownst to fans, left out a 4K Blu Ray player; something even the weaker of Microsoft's two offerings contains. (Xbox One S) The Pro doesn't offer gamers an improved experience when simply utilizing on a 1080P TV; the Xbox One X provides gamers supersampling, which enables high fidelity graphics on the older technology. The PS4 Pro cannot handle, true 4K gaming. Instead it offers Super Sampled 4K, similar to what a Blu Ray player does for a DVD, and what the X does on a 1080P TV. The X has true 4K gaming experiences when implemented by the developer. In the end, Sony jumped and found out the hard way that paving the way to Gaming's next big experience is tough to do. Microsoft learned when they launched the original XB1 console. Instead Microsoft separated themselves, offering a console that is more expensive, more powerful, and fully-featured than the competition. Even despite the price tag, the money is well spent. You cant buy a PC with this power that offers what the X does. In my opinion, making it the best value in gaming. They learned that sometimes waiting isn't actually the hardest part. I will always love the PlayStation 4 for its exclusives and unique library and my Switch is not even on the same track as these two... and that's ok. But Microsoft has taken my money this time around; until the next big battle begins; Microsoft has stole the show.

    I am going to skip all the technical jargon about teraflops and GPUs etc. I've owned every home console to date, I agree PCs may be the best option for game performance because I know how technology works, however I will review the Xbox One X for people who don't care about building a behemoth and just want something out of the box to plug and play, if you will. I played my original Day One Edition Xbox One daily, but I found myself running out of room on the 500GB and I would swap out my digital games deleting and re-downloading left and right. I decided to upgrade to the One X instead to maximize my 4K TV experience. The first thing I noticed from the original Xbox one was the removal of the power brick. The Xbox One X system itself was a great deal smaller than the original. Simple hook up with nothing new from any other device hook up. The real difference came after I got my profile and setting pulled over. After the initial setup the system load time was a good amount less than the old system. The fan is super quiet, and the optimized games look amazing. A few games that I play frequently had added detail and different rendering. I will agree that the price is a bit steep for casual console gamers, but if you are a fan of the Xbox One and have a 4K TV it is definitely worth it.

    XBOX ONE X is a steal for the price

    The Xbox One X is a steal for $499.99, any naysayers saying the price is too much or the PC fanboys saying "why don't you just build a PC?" are dead WRONG and misinformed. An NVidia GeForce GTX 980TI costs today $399.99, this GPU runs at 5.6 TFLOPS, the Xbox One X runs at 6 TFLOPS, so these two are comparable so that is why I am using that GPU as a reference point. The card alone costs $399.99, you still need the RAM, HDD, CPU, MOBO, GSYNC Monitors, add all that up and you can't build a computer for the price you can buy the new Xbox One X for...... Sadly the GTX 980 TI only has 6GBs of GDDR5 memory as well, the Xbox One X has 12 GBs of GDDR5 memory and all of this for $499.99.... People need to really research before they become SJW (social justice warriors) and misinformed FANBOYS putting down something they really don't understand. On Top of all of the this, the Xbox One X has a 4K UHD Blu Ray drive as well, go price out a 4K Blu Ray player, yeah.... See what I'm saying now? Stop listening to fanboys, especially SONY PONIES who are just hating that their PS4 PRO console is a joke compared to XOX.

    Great Console, value for the price

    The Xbox One X is a well engineered machine and fulfills its promise of being the most powerful console in the world. The X1X is remarkably compact, it looks so small next to the original Xbox One console that it is hard to believe it is 4x more powerful. Gone is the power brick from the original console as well. All you have is a sleek unassuming device that hides away with your other AV devices. Hides at least until you power it on for the first time. You are greeted with a special loading screen that shows everyone that you don’t have a typical Xbox. Under the sleek exterior is an interior that houses amazing power. Many people will talk about the considerable teraflops performance for the price of this device, but what really sets it apart is the huge amount of RAM for a console. 12GB of high performance GDDR5 mans the Xbox One X has more RAM for games (9GB) than the PS4 PRO has for the ENTIRE system (8GB). This means higher quality textures and more of the game can be loaded into memory, resulting in faster load times. It’s a key difference that makes the One X stand out. That combined with a 4K UHD Blu Ray player make this console have quite a lot of hardware for the price. Games are incredible on the console, the detail that true 4K and enhanced quality textures can bring out is striking. Mine is alone on a pretty large shelf in an open front entertainment center and has never made more than a whisper, even when pushed with the most demanding titles. The large fan and the vapor chamber heat sink keep it running quiet, at least in my setup. It is expensive, but it is a good value for the money. I would also look at the library of enhanced games and make sure they are ones you have or are willing to play. Also with the size of 4K games the 1TB HDD can be small and an external is kind of required if you want to have a large library loaded. For the cost a 2TB would have been nice. If you want the best, and either want access to the Xbox library of games or upgrade to the best the platform has to offer, then this is the console for you.

    My first xbox console and I don't have nothing but great things to say about it. Coming from a long time PlayStation console player, I can see this console is the most powerful console out there now in the market. I really like the performance it brings to the table, it's really quiet and a bit heavy like a brick. Smaller than the xbox one s and more powerful in graphics. This is well worth it if you have a 4k hdr tv as you will get true native 4k resolution. The game Red Dead Redemption 2 realky looks amazing on this console, but i have to say the HDR is of no use here as it makes it looks washed out when hdr is turn on. So I turn if off. Overall i dont have much negative to say about this console besides i don't like the new home screen layout and the fact that you can't delete some apps on the console like mixer app. I wished Microsoft would go back to the older layout they had before back in 2016 i think. Would i recommend, yes if you have the cash to spare and a 4k. Depends on your opinion and investment in the system, this is a great console to play games on. I waited for black Friday sale to go on and was worth it for the price. You get built in 4k ultra Blu ray player and it nice that you get a none brick power adapter. Another con is I don't like the fact the controller is power by batteries, so with in due time you have to go buy more double AA batteries. I had the console for a week and half now and the batteries lasted me about a week and half maybe. I been constantly playing on the console. In conclusion, this is well worth your money and your time.

    Amazing Upgrade

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    I’d been on the fence on purchasing an Xbox One X as I`ve had the special edition gray Xbox One S for a little over a year and was hesitant to upgrade due to the quite high price of the X and the possibility of a new console on the horizon in 2020 (possibly 2019). However, I ended up making the jump while the X was on sale during E3 week and I can definitely say that it is worth it and that I definitely don`t have any buyers remorse. Having recently just gotten a 4K tv I didn’t understand the difference from 1080 to 4K and didn`t think it was that big of a deal, but those in a similar situation I`d suggest going on YouTube on your 4K tv and looking at the xbox s vs x comparison videos as there is actually an extreme difference. Then with the hardware being upgraded the loading times actually have been reduced and prior to the X I had assumed that a couple seconds here and there didn’t matter, but with the X I`ve become accustomed to not sitting and waiting constantly during loading screens. Then the other thing I do have to mention is how amazingly quiet this thing is, I mean there is legitimately no sound that this thing puts out and every time I think about it I am just amazed with truly how quiet it is. Overall, I am amazed with what Microsoft was able to do with this machine from a cosmetic state, but also from a performance standpoint. I am at the point right now that I probably won`t even upgrade to the new console instantly when it comes out as with how smooth the X runs and how it looks I am extremely happy with this console.

    Definately buy one but not for the TFLOPS rating.

    I played this system at a friends house and I was so impressed I have to go and buy one now for sure almost as fast as my PC. I also have to say something about a previous comment that is somewhat true but not accurate so here I go. First off PC TFLOPS cannot be compared to a gaming console TFLOPS they are two very distinct platforms to begin with and will measure differently and not have the same outcome if compared to one another even though the numbers are great for the console itself you can only compare it to other consoles and if you don't know what were talking about it means a trillion floating-point operations per second just to put that out there for those who don't know what it means. Second you can build a really great PC Gaming system for way less than you think just depends on what your wanting to do with it as far as games, video editing, streaming and so on. I built my custom Gaming system for less than $900 with 500gb SSD drive, 2TB hard drive, Intel i7 770k 4.20Ghz processor, 16 gigs of memory, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 8GB Video Card and a lot more including an LG Monitor with all the bells and whistles if you shop around and everything is new including my gaming keyboard and mouse. Final note if your going to buy this console make sure you understand one thing don't buy it cause we are using geek lingo no actually buy it cause your looking for a great system that can truly handle fast pace games, movies and deliver excellent graphics on your TV screen a must have.

    The most powerful console TODAY!!

    rglaredo

    I waited and waited for Team MS to respond to PS4 Pro. All I can say is ; Project Scorpio DELIVERED !!! 4k play, more RAM, More GPU power. What is not to love. Well here is what is not to love about it , Not enough game diversity. The need for a 4k TV with low input lag to take advantage of this incredible machine. What is to love about it is that it includes a 4k player that alone is abut 140 dlls option, can connect the cable box to it saving one HDMI port, all of this plus a plethora of apps that you can use, makes this machine worth more than 499.99 . In order to complete this system you just need a 4k tv (recommend tcl for low input lag either the P series or the best bang for the buck is the S series. Xbox1x+TCL 4k S series will cost you about 1.1/1.2 k depending of you want the protection plans and taxes of your state. You can not build a COMPLETE 4k PC system including 4 k monitor and at least a medium grade GPU for less than that. Besides a 4k pc system will not have a small factor form ...because the good GPUs will not fit on micro or mini ITX boxes the size of the Xbox. All in all love the xbox1x It just needs to drop at at least 100 dlls to make it more aggressively competitive on price point ...
