    An XBox for the Avid XBox fan

    The XBox One X, IMO, is a great console for the avid XBox fan. I have been using the console since it launched, so I have a few months with it now. First what we know. It is the most powerful console at this time. It can play games in Native 4k with HDR, where compliant, but even those games that are not XBox One X enhanced will look better and have shorter load times, on the whole. Honestly, there are so many variables involved when it comes to 4k, 60 fps and HDR, that it goes beyond my understanding. I researched 4k and HDR standards a couple of years ago when I was looking to upgrade my TV. There was so much on the topic and yet, I never truly felt like I understood everything that made it all come together. I can quote some numbers I read about, but honestly it would be hollow rumbling and spewing of garbage since I am by no means an expert on the topic. What I can tell you is that my experience will almost certainly not be exactly the same as someone else. However, it might be similar. I have an LG OLED65B6P with an LG 300w Soundbar and 10" woofer. Even if you have the same exact setup, anything I write about my experience, with my TV, might not apply to you. I often leave my TV in game mode for most normal TV watching and of course gaming. I recommend the gaming setting if your TV has one. What I can tell you is, with this XBox, and my setup, I have noticed a significant improvement in my gaming experience. Games load so much faster on the One X Scorpio than my Day One Edition. The most dramatic improvement I noticed was in the load times for Battlefront. On my Day One Edition it would take an average 5-8 minutes to load a map and get to gaming. On the Scoripio, it takes maybe a minute and a half, at the most. Likely bandwidth issues on my end contribute to this, but it is still so much faster on the One X and looks better overall. Most of the time I can select the A button to load the next map while stats are still tallying from the previous game. I am normally one of the first on the Map and waiting for the game to start and my teammates to join. It might not matter that much, but I was impressed. Other games like Shadow of War, Assassin's Creed, and Forza, play so much better and load so much faster on my One X. Those games are enhanced from the developers already, so it only makes sense they would be better than on my Day One Edition. Older games look better too. Halo Reach, Halo 4 and Halo 5 definitely look and play better on the One X. Colors look better. Frame rates are more stable, and load times are less than on my Day One Edition. I can't attest to whether I am gaming at or near 60 FPS. I have no means to measure this myself, but the look and feel of games is improved overall. Lastly, this thing can play 4k Blu Rays. I only have two 4k blu ray DVDs, but they look and sound awesome. Now for the negatives. First the cost. At $500.00 it is expensive, and I honestly can't say it would be that much of an improvement over something like an XBox One S, to justify the cost. I don't have a One S, but I had not bought an XBox since 2013 and I wanted something that could play on my 4k TV. I also had $200 in gift cards, so my Scorpio only cost me $300.00 and some change after taxes. Second, the memory. Sure you can plug in a portable drive, but that sucks. I have two 500 GB Drives and one 1TB drive, and it is a pain to figure out which one has the title I want to play. I likely just need a better labeling system on the drives, and this could be a moot point. Still, why in the world would you have a 4k capable console, with as much memory as the enhanced games take up, and not include a 2-5 TB drive option. I think games like Forza7 and Halo 5 take up around 40-80 GB with the enhancements. Another issue I have is with loading the games to the console. I get it, this prevents the disk from constantly spinning and leads to shorter load times and can help to prevent heat issues, etc. But it is still annoying. It just sucks having to wait for an hour to play a game you are eager to get into. That being said, downloads are faster on the One X. Third, no input for the Kinect! I didn't own a One S but this issue persisted there as well, because Microsoft did not include the input for the Kinect. This is inexcusable and I joined a bevy of fans that are sending formal complaints to Microsoft. Those complaints have fallen on deaf ears though as Microsoft discontinued support for the Kinect and adabpter just recently. I was super annoyed that I could not hook up my Kinect. Yes, I know I can buy the adapter from a third party and it will be fine, but in light of Microsoft's move to stop making the adapters, markups on these adapters are soaring. This is complete and utter BS and I am disappointment in Microsoft over this. Now that I am done whining like a baby, I can say not using the Kinect hasn't really been that big of a deal for me and it hasn't affected my gaming. It was cool being able to turn the thing off and on with the Kinect, but honestly the controller is probably quicker when navigating the XBox. If you have titles that require a Kinect though, I feel bad for you. As a result of the issue with the Kinect on the One X, I only give it 4 stars. To sum up, I am extremely pleased with my One X Scorpio Edition. It plays games better and faster, as advertised. It is sleek, small and whisper quiet. I do wish the Scorpio was a little more distinguishable from the average One X. Other than the pattern on the console, the Scorpio tags on the controller and console, and the stand, these limited editions don't bring much to the table, except bragging rights. Despite this I highly recommend the One X, however, it may not be for you if you do not have a 4k TV, or if you already own a One S.

    No reason for this system.

    People place to much importance, and hype on graphics, and power these days. Remember back when games use to be all about fun? I'm 42 and I certainly do. I've been gaming since Atari 2600 and building gaming rigs for a long time, so I've pretty much experienced everything I can or want to, for gaming. Even though I'm not even hardcore. The Xbox One S is the better option, because people fail to realize what they're paying 500$ for. 1. Games that are only slightly upgraded graphically, the majority of them "old" games which either play(ed) fine, or played better on PS4 anyway. 2. The frames per second won't increase that drastically and if so, they won't push true 4K. And the average person doesn't care, nor can they see a huge difference anyway. I'm not average and I can BARELY see a difference, So there ya go. 3. Dropping 500$ on a system with more power is just foolish. The Xbox One S does a fine job of upscaling, if you own a 4K TV, and also has the cheapest UHD player on the market. As I say, if you're into this kind of thing. 4. Xbox One Fat, and S play the same games, they all turn out the same in the end, and they have the same fun factor as any higher end gaming platform. 5. Even though this console has sold out I predict a LOT of buyers remorse when the "fans" don't get what they expected, or this small system fails/bricks because of to much power. Remember 360 upon release? Also when they see very few "Exclusive" titles just for the X, they will really be disappointed. And lastly I'll admit I was curious and honestly thought about a pre order, but then thought whoa, wait. This is just another marketing ploy. And usual, to get people's hard earned cash, or ones that have disposable income. Also I'm not a fan "man" but you have to admit the future of games belongs to Sony, as do sales. With games like UC4, Uncharted Legacy, others on the way, Spiderman, God Of War, Days Gone, Death Stranding, The Last Of Us 2, Detroit Become Human and many others on the way. The PS4 is still the best place to play. Why? Because they have the content, and still some of the most amazing playing/looking and fun games on the market today. And I can play them on the Slim. You don't "need" a pro to enjoy them. Though it's nice. So remember, it's not how much power you have, it's what you use it for. And the Xbox One X is just using this to try and increase sales in a battle they lost a long time ago. The Xbox One (that I own is used as a multimedia device), nothing more nothing less. And I'm sure many people agree with me. All the 3rd party titles will be on all platforms. Are you really going to drop 500$ plus tax to get slightly better performance? Or maybe you won't get it. Also more power to you if you want to use all of that power to play OLD games. Or enhance them. Just makes no sense to me. Just like all of these pre-reviews. Even mine. lol But to each their own. If you have it, waste it. I'm saving mine for "games".

    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.

    Great Upgrade, Especially for 4K HDR TVs

    I'm really happy that I ordered the Xbox One X. It brings a noticeable improvement in quality and speed with all games, especially so with those that have been patched to take advantage of the better hardware. It also comes in a package that's smaller still than the Xbox One S. I think Microsoft has a game problem right now, but if you've been on the Xbox wagon like I have and you have a 4K TV you won't regret this decision. The Project Scorpio Edition is the same as the normal Xbox One X, but it adds some slightly different patterning and logos on the console and throws in a vertical stand. The packaging is reminiscent of the original Xbox, which is nice little nod for long-time fans. In the box you get the console with a 1TB hard drive, a special edition controller (buttons blacked out and with Project Scorpio printed across the center), the vertical stand, and the power cord. Those coming from the original Xbox One will be pleasantly surprised to see there's no more power brick to deal with. The ports across the back are in the same arrangement as the Xbox One S. Gaming on the Xbox One X is pretty great. They system starts up fast and loads games and apps quickly. Forza Motorsport 7 looks incredible in 4K/HDR and runs buttery smooth. Older games like Halo 5 look brand new again thanks to patches from Microsoft. There's already a pretty long list of games that either have or are set to receive a patch for the Xbox One X, so you won't be short on games that take advantage of the new hardware. Even games that haven't been patched yet still look much better. I noticed that the overall interface seems a bit quicker to navigate as well. Microsoft keeps changing up the Xbox One dashboard, but I think they finally got it right this time. As a bonus the One X also doubles as a 4K Blu-ray player - something the PS4 Pro did not include for some reason. If you weren't a fan of the Xbox One before I'd hesitate to say the One X will change your mind, but if you already on board I think it's a worthwhile upgrade.

    Could not be happier upgrading my XBOX ONE S (not trading or selling my X1S) to the XBOX ONE X Scorpio Edition. It's the only console along with the S that can play Ultra 4K physical disc. It's backwards compatible with many XBOX 360 & select OG XBOX games. I bought a Sony 4K OLED A1E 55'inch to take advance of the X1X's 4K & HDR capabilities. I've never seen a game look so visually amazing as Assassin's Creed Origins taking full advantage of X1X's 4K & HDR features. Even older games like Mirror's Edge on 360 is Enhanced and looks beautiful. I don't think I would recommend the X1X unless you own a 4K tv w/ HDR. You won't be able to take advantage of all of its benefits. I would stick with the X1S, which is no slouch. I would also recommend purchasing a external hard drive with at least 4 TB of memory. The games that are XBOX ONE X Enhanced take up A LOT more space on your HDD. The internal 1 TB is not enough to retain but a few titles that are large in storage requirements. One more note. I would highly recommend 4K tv owners with HDR to keep HDR set to "Auto". If turned on it may make non supported HDR titles look weird with the colors. Speaking for my Sony 4K it automatically recognized my games that were HDR compatible and turn it on when they were in play such as AC:Origins, FF XV, & Dead Rising 4.

    I'm a big multiplatform gamer, I have all the systems even a gaming PC and I will say that I'm really happy with the Xbox One X. Not only with the beastly power that it offers but the myriad of improvements that they've made to the software and platform. First, the dashboard is much quicker and responsive compared to prior iterations and they've done a ton of improvements to how quickly you can maneuver around the menu to find what you're looking for. I've also noticed that there's a general improvement in stability. Impressed with what they've done with it. Now as far a the hardware, It really takes seeing it in action to really appreciate what this powerhouse can do. You want to make sure you have a good 4K HDR to appreciate the performance and graphical improvements but even on regular displays, you can still have an upgraded experience with supersampling resolution and upgrade textures and effects. If you want to see examples, look up the Digital Foundry comparisons on YouTube just to see the jump in quality. In my opinion, it probably offers the definitive experience for certain games like Assassin's Creed Origins, Wolfenstein 2, Forza 7 at a more accessible price. Another thing to add is Windows Sonic and Dolby Atmos sound standards. Whiles most people love gaphics, audio is also an important part of the experience. Whether through a home theater or headphones, it take audio immersion to a whole new level. It adds elevation to the equation so it really gives a new level of immersion. I got the Project Scorpio edition and I love it. It really pays neat homage to Xbox history and makes the console stand out with the finish like it should. I would highly recommend this for anyone who is an Xbox fan and anyone who loves games. Great job Microsoft!

    Bought this for my son's 18th birthday (late Nov). Picked this up from the store, took home, plugged in and all looked good. Turned off, came back an hour later to set up, and it wouldn't turn on. After 20 minutes of troubleshooting, spent 40 minutes on the phone with Microsoft support and the result is that (because the Scorpio is sold out) I have to: - go buy a box and bubble wrap to ship this to their repair facility (couldn't send me a shipping box?) - drive this to a FedEx facility for shipping (couldn't arrange pickup?) - wait until the unit is repaired, which very likely won't be until after my son's birthday in 2 weeks (MS don't keep stock for replacements?) So I paid as much as everyone else that received one that works, but I don't get to use it for weeks, I have to pay in $$ and time for the privilege of getting it repaired, and I get *nothing* in return for this. As a counterpoint - when I bought a subwoofer several months ago, it stopped working first day out of the box. The company shipped a repair part and had someone come to my house to install it. I didn't have to ask, and it was fixed within 48 hours of the call. This tells me that MS has to repair so many Xbox units that they cannot afford to spend a penny above the absolute minimum. So I'm very dissatisfied with this purchase, before even having the chance to use it for one minute. I lined out all of my points above to the support person at MS, and their response was, "I'm sorry, I agree this is not a good situation, and Microsoft should do better by you." Thanks, buddy, you nailed it. I'll have several weeks to enjoy those meaningful words as compensation for making the mistake of paying for Microsoft's hardware.

    A Console To Grow Into

    I've been a Microsoft console owner since the original Xbox, so I've consider myself something of a connoisseur. I've bought "Launch Day" consoles in each generation and the XB1 was no exception. I was thinking about upgrades and was ready to move on towards the S model. Then the rumors started coming out about "Scorpio"...so I held off...and I'm glad I did. The best way I can describe the XBox 1 X is as a console you can "grow into". If I'd bought the S, I know I would have been disappointed, even angry when the 1 X came out. I don't have a 4K TV yet, but we will. I know the extra power in the console will be used in the near future. It certainly has made Sony look over their shoulder. I like the new controller. It's just a touch smaller than the Xbox One, but it feels tighter and more responsive. The interface is zippy and feels tight also. One of the things I've VERY happy about...and this may not seem like a big deal...but not having to clear out space for a power BRICK is FANTASTIC. Overall, I'm happy with the console and look forward to really putting it through the paces.

    Microsoft Makes Great Gear Now like XBOX 1 X

    Everyone Has Heard The Gaming Is As Good As It Gets. Forza 7 is worth the price alone. That can be played for a year every day and it will just get better because you will get better. When you finally finish first in a race WARNING YOU WILL BE ADDICTED. Not many saying how easy it is to make XBOX 1 X your entertainment console Plug 1 cable in from Cable & 1 cable to TV. Can't be any easier. 4 K's are cheap now. The XBOX 1 X improves ANY TV even non 4k. You can add NFL & NBA Tickets via XBOX and then it is as easy as watching TV. Just click the app and select your game. Can it get any easier? Your Movies, Music, Twitter, FB & Edge Internet Browser are right there all in 1 place and it is the Ultimate Living Room Experience. Why would you not want to use an Internet Browser on a large 65 incher. You can hook a wireless Keyboard in the USB. The Gaming and Pure Entertainment are so Good on this device that I can honestly say that it is almost impossible that anyone would not love this device. It takes away the lag time with streaming or waiting on the kinds of things you had to in the old days. This device has so much power and the machine provides such unbelievably good pictures you would have to fight me to take mine back. Microsoft makes great, sleek gear now. I do not know what happened but Man did they ever figure out how to make some great Hardware not just Great Software. Run to get this device before they are sold out for the Holidays. This thing is going to be the Hot Holiday Product.

    I'll admit I have been an Xbox fan since the first system and I personally think the Xbox 360 was one of the best systems put out and was and still is my most played system out of all the other game systems I own since 1986! I've been hearing about Project Scorpio for a long while and finally glad it came out and love it, but TBH the 1T HDD is just not gonna do if you have a lot of games that are X enhanced. GOW4 is now 100 GB and Halo 5 is like 97GB now? I am not a fan boy and I have a PS4 Pro which I love too and have it solely for the exclusives on that system, but bought this system for a few exclusives and to be able still play a good majority of xbox 360 games and even a few OG Xbox games!!! Plus this is the only system with true 4K support!! one last thing, this system is ridiculously quiet compared to the PS4 Pro. I am only giving the rating a 4 due to file size of some of these X enhanced games and I ran out of HDD space in 3 days!!! Well I do have like 100+ games I was installing, but still! lol Now I have to buy and external HDD so that will cost additional $$.

    If you are an avid gamer or a tech nerd then this is the one for you! I pre-ordered this and picked it up at midnight launch and would like to first Thank the Best Buy employees who ran a great launch and even handed out some free Xbox stuff including a backpack! I was ready for the transfer and the software that Microsoft provided enabled you to transfer all of your game data to the new Xbox One X via an external HD. The transfer took minutes instead of hours if you had to re-download all of the game data online, well done. The system is much smaller than my previous Xbox One Elite edition. The Scorpio controller looks great and I will use in the future. I am currently using my Elite controller just because I am used to playing with it and like the extra controls on the bottom. The X version launches very quickly and I haven't experienced any issues that weren't connection related. I haven't had any game freezes to date and games and apps both function great. The new COD WW II game is 4K ready and it looks great on this system. Highly Recommended.

    Amazing Amount Of Power In One Little Box

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    First thing I've noticed was the weight of the console. It is surprisingly heavy. Only explanation I can think of why it's so heavy is the amount of power this console has once I turned it on. It's like night and day when comparing a few of my games I have for the original Xbox One and S to the X. The graphics are amazing and the system is extremely quiet also. I'm so glad this day finally arrived and very pleased with my purchase. Can't wait to see what Microsoft has in store for Xbox coming 2018.

    Remember360

    Over-promising and under-delivering this generation for MS. I remember the good ol days of the 360 with all its great exclusives. It wasn't even the most powerful console on the market either. Now they flipped and followed the PS3's business model...more power and pray the developers come back. Losing Scalebound, Crackdown pushed back, Cuphead consistently pushed back, Halo being subpar...all they have now is Forza and PlayerUnknown but they can't hold a console by themselves. All of this is just Microsoft themselves. Now they want people to pay for a $500 upgrade just so you can see a couple of first party titles in higher resolution and then some multiplatform titles with GBs and GBs of patches. Seems like a pointless upgrade at this point in time. Same with Sony. Why not give us the next Xbox and PlayStation instead of more pointlessness. Just keep your Xbox S or PS4 and wait.

    Awesome console, terrible UI

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    The Xbox One X is pretty dang good at playing games. I have been playing Assassin's Creed Origins in 4K and the game looks amazing. If you have the money, and a 4K TV, by all means take the plunge. My main complaint is the UI. It harkens to the dark times of Windows 8's Metro UI. Put simply, the UI is bad. Back in the days of the PS3 vs the XB360, Microsoft had pretty decent UIs. One did not need to perform several actions to get to anything in particular. However, now it seems like a chore to get to the console settings, my friends list, notifications, etc. At least 3 or 4 actions and various menu navigation. Dealing with the Xbox One X's UI, I just think of how simplistic the 360's UI and the PS4's UIs were/are. There are also times when navigating the UI where there will be a very small hiccup. It happens rarely, but when it does, its annoying.

    Excellent hardware let down by lack of games

    Without doubt Xbox One X is the most powerful console ever and fixes all the short coming of the original Xbox One that was released few years ago. Microsoft has finally created a console that prioritizes on the main functionality of a gaming console i.e. games. With that said, Microsoft forgot that no matter how good a hardware is, it is useless without excellent games to showcase the power and that's where Xbox One X falls flat because other than Forza their is not single exclusive game that shows the true potential of the hardware. Sure there a lot of games that have been "enhanced" for the console but you don't pay $500 to play pretty version of old games. The reason why I bought it is because of the UHD Blu-ray play back otherwise in current state PS4 Pro is better value due to being cheaper and having tons of A+ exclusive games.

    The Xbox One X is advertised as the most power console ever made, and Microsoft really delivered. The console is much smaller than the normal Xbox One, and looks great on a vertical stand. I wasn't too sure about 4K gaming and if it would really be that big of a difference. When I started playing some 4K games, I couldn't believe how big the difference truly was. The graphics are amazing, and everything is so much more crisp. Movements of characters and environments seem more fluid than anything I've ever seen on a TV. The 4K Blu Ray drive is also a huge bonus. This Xbox simply performs every task at an extremely high level. Nearly two weeks into owning my Xbox, and I couldn't be more satisfied. I would recommend that you get this product to see its true power for yourself.

    Long/short. I bought this on pre-order nearly a year ago in 2017. (Scorpion edition) It's the same thing as a standard one. Just paint and a vertical stand as a bonus for pre-ordering. It boosts everything a gamer wants. Load times, graphics, FPS, no screen tearing during fast paced games, sound, etc. etc. etc. Old games look much newer, with much smoother FPS, and no tearing. We use it hard and it doesn't slow down. The X makes my old 2013 day one XB1 and PS4 Pro look like two dinosaurs. True 4k glory! No regrets. It bumped up our old 1080p 60" T.V quite a lot as well. Instantly noticeable. FPS was much smoother, graphics looked a lot closer to 4k. Using it with our new 4k HDR 10 set is even better!

    I am very please with the quality of the new Xbox One X. The speed of load times are greatly improved. The games that are Xbox One X enhanced run so smoothly. I am very disappointed that they took out the Kinect Sensor plug and require you to buy an adapter to use it that will take up one of the 3 USB ports. I can't do that due to my external HDD and the microphones I use for Rock Band. Microsoft wants you to spend another $30 for that after you just spent $500 on the new X. This is my third Xbox One. I've had an OG Xbox, 3 Xbox 360's and now 3 Xbox One's and yet Microsoft refuses to do anything for me. I think that is horrible customer service and shows they really don't care about you and are only in it to make money. But over all I am happy with the new system. Now I just need to upgrade my TV to a 4K.

    I am so pleased with the Xbox One X. It's a powerhouse machine that turns good looking games into beautiful works of art. AC Origins is stunning on the One X with an accompanying 4k tv. Dolby Atmos support is a first in the industry and very thankful it is here to match a great sound bar. It runs very cool and is very pleasant to look at. Super speedy and improved everything about the original Xbox one or the One S. The only downside is the extra adapter needed for the Kinect. Our family definitely uses in our household and just wish it was supported out of the box. Only other thing I would add is you don't need a 4k TV to take advantage of the X. It still massively improves your gaming experience on a 1080P TV. Buy it now, you won't be disappointed.

    Giant leap for gamers

    I had always been a PlayStation guy and ridiculed the original Xbox One (deservedly so) when it was released. But I also pay attention to the gaming industry and things started changing for the better when Phil Spencer took charge of the Xbox division in 2014. I later picked up an Xbox One S to pair with my PS4 and have been impressed with the commitment Xbox has towards its users, something I've never really felt with PlayStation. I've found the Xbox ecosystem is superior to what PlayStation offers, which is why I've traded in my PS4 towards the new Xbox One X. Even at $500, it's a bargain considering what you'd have to pay to build a comparable PC setup. If you want the best, cutting edge technology then this is the console for you. If you are a casual gamer, then the S is a great choice at half the price.
