Xbox One: Whether it's a game, Blu-ray movie, or streaming video, the Xbox One tops out at 1080p Full HD resolution.

The Xbox One X is an ergonomic masterpiece.

So the Xbox One X is going to cost a fair bit more than the PS4 Pro, but will you get more for your money? Running in native 4K resolution at 60 frames per second, the visual fidelity of the game was impressive, with highly detailed vehicle models and scenery - the latter apparently using 4K photos to create the texture maps.

Despite the inclusion of that shiny new plumbing stuffed inside, Microsoft also confirmed that the Xbox One X is the smallest Xbox to date.

Some gamers might already know they're planning to own both consoles, but that'll be too pricey for a lot us.

Where the Xbox One does launch a killer blow on the PS4 Pro is on the content front; the Xbox One X comes equipped with an Ultra HD Blu-ray drive that allows you to experience 4K content without having to worry about the strain on your internet connection.

As you might expect, the Xbox One X is superior to the PS4 Pro due to the increased GPU power and better memory performance.

The Xbox One X trumps the PlayStation 4 Pro in nearly every category; the hardware provides the best content viewing experience thanks to its Dolby Atmos support and Ultra HD Blu-ray drive and blows the Pro away in the spec department. We can not guarantee whether Microsoft will bring the Xbox One X to India or not.

Both the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro are technical behemoths that boast incredible amounts of power.

Xbox One has also fallen behind PlayStation 4 in sales terms, so Microsoft is looking to boost its brand by releasing the most powerful console of the generation. However, the Xbox One X has to take the title for best design for the simple and elegant nature of the hardware combined the incredible advancements Microsoft has made since the initial Xbox One launch. That's similar to the octa-core setup in the PS4 Pro, but that only runs at 2.1GHz, giving the Xbox a slight edge. Obviously when we think about UWP and the ability for games to run across console and PC, we're getting closer.

During a press conference, some of the first off these games were previewed, including a new game from the popular Assassin's Creed franchise - Origins. By contrast, the PS4 Pro offers upscaled 4K, and doesn't typically offer a smooth 60fps. Aside from Forza Motorsport 7 nothing was revealed in this calibre. As it stands, it may prove a luxury purchase until - inevitably - the price tumbles.
