The Xbox One X works right out of the box with the Xbox One and Xbox One S accessories, controllers and games.

Nonetheless, as the company continues to trail significantly behind Sony in the console marketplace, it will be essential for the Xbox One X to attract consumers rapidly.

When the Xbox One launched, the company had a stellar first-party lineup which Sony couldn't touch. Microsoft has been working on changing that in past couple of years with its Cross play and Play Anywhere initiatives and making a larger effort to include PC compatibility for Xbox exclusives. "The PS4 Pro strategy has been successful with around 20 per cent of new sales of PS4 being the Pro edition since the launch of the new console". The same outlets didn't discuss gameplay mechanics or how innovative it was-they made it a focus to highlight how it ran at only 900p on Xbox One.

What is the release date for the Xbox One X? Next up, it's time for our second platform holder showcase in the form of Sony's PlayStation Live event. There will also be updates for recent titles like Final Fantasy XV. "There's nothing technically that would keep any game a console game maker is building who wants to take advantage of the capability here from making Xbox One X the very best version of every one of those games". But what will happen as games consoles become more powerful? We would be much more excited for the Xbox One X if Microsoft announced that the next entry in the Halo franchise, for example, was an Xbox One X exclusive. Microsoft commenced its profound plunge into Xbox One X's abilities with the offerings of Forza Motorsport 7. It will also have 7 billion transistors, liquid cooling and is the smallest console Microsoft has ever created. It will ship with 6 teraflops of graphical power, more than its main competitor, the PS4 Pro, with 4.2 teraflops. In comparison, the PlayStation 4 Pro, which can handle 4K movies, but only a fraction of games run in native 4K resolution. $500 has slightly confused its mandate; part premium device, part gamble to restore parity between Microsoft and Sony.

Many Xbox One gamers will want to upgrade to an Xbox One X because of this. This is their opportunity to purchase a truly extraordinary device-a device the Xbox One should've been to begin with.

Microsoft has finally revealed its plans for Project Scorpio, the new generation of Xbox one consoles that have been rumored for far too long. This should've been their approach to begin with. The game is expected to be on the floor by the early months of 2018. A few are compatible with both Xbox and PlayStations, also, additionally, they can be played on PC.
