Xbox One X review: A console that keeps up with gaming PCs

Once I was done backing everything up and loading my games on the hard drive, all I did was plug my hard drive in the Xbox One X. Within minutes, I was playing my first game. If you happened to not buy any games, your Xbox One X console should come with a 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial, so you can download some games from that. With amazing textures and smooth 60 fps gameplay, Gears of War 4 almost felt like a new experience. We played Forza Motorsport 7 and the experience was the perfect showcase of what the X can do - cars look pristine, dynamic weather cascades across the screen and there's a pin-sharp attention to detail that you can't get on any of its competitors. Already tired and haggard after a long day at PAX AUS, a handful of Stevivor crew stayed up until 3.00am watching episode after episode of Planet Earth II, crazily lifelike in native 4K.

But it's not just games, you can also play 4K Ultra HD Blu rays as well.

According to The Telegraph interview, one in five new PS4s sold is a Pro, the Sony answer to the rising demand for 4K gaming. Unlike the PS4 Pro or the Xbox One S, we're talking native 4K and HDR. Otherwise, you can take advantage of the one-month Xbox Game Pass to download some games (again, mind the download quota).

The hardware on which games makers can now develop is likely to mean the games we see in the coming years are a significant jump forward on what we have currently. Before I plugged in my Xbox One X, I saved all my games from my Xbox One S to an external hard drive. It's got that you-are-there feel, of course, though still with the current generation of gaming's general level of detail - that is, the characters still move with the same stiffness and overall "game-like" motion, but you can already see that as 4K becomes the new standard, we'll very quickly reach the uncanny valley with human renderings and game environments. It is available for free from Nov. 1 to Nov. 30.

Gizmodo's Alex Cranz spent a lot of time in her review placing the Xbox One X and the PlayStation 4 in head to head competition, and found that the more-powerful Xbox simply is the better 4K machine.

The company are calling it the most powerful console ever made, with hardware specs that'll send shivers up PS4 Pro owners' spines.

When not running enhanced games, the Xbox One X functions much like last year's Xbox One S, upscaling 1080p graphics to 4K.

About Helzberg Diamonds Helzberg Diamonds ®, a retail and online jewelry store focused on customer service, was founded in 1915 and has more than 200 stores nationwide, featuring a wide selection of fine jewelry, including diamond engagement rings and wedding rings, precious gems and watches. Perhaps this speaks to the quality of the components. And although the Xbox One X improves games' framerates and resolution even on 1080p TVs, it doesn't seem like a significant enough leap to warrant the price if you don't have a 4K TV. Just Cause 3 and Fallout 4 are two recent examples of AAA releases that had considerable framerate issues on console, despite working lovely on powerhouse PCs. Owners will also have to study their console and television settings carefully to ensure that all systems are go and optimized, whether it's HDR activation, proper picture mode, screen settings, etc. It might take several passes on either side to ensure that you've truly maximized the image quality. Helzberg Diamonds is based in North Kansas City, Mo., and is a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. It is mandatory that all of you will be well aware of the popularity of the Microsoft Xbox in this field and many of you might also own them. Even though it has a heavy power range, its console is one of the sleekest you will ever find. Once known as Project Scorpio, the new console has finally been released onto the world under the title Xbox One X.

This boots the Xbox One X in (admittedly ugly) 640x480 resolution.

It has an internal power supply, so there's no need for the large power brick. There aren't many non-PS4 exclusive titles from major third-party developers that you would miss if you owned an Xbox One. We think the XBOX One X can change that.

There is no denying that the Xbox One X is an incredible console.

The Xbox One X is available Nov. 7 for $499. "When I performed a Shadow Wind Kick, I could see the dark purple energy emanating from the attack in waves". Microsoft now really need to back it up with a strong series of stand out exclusive to make people want to come and play. The best thing about the Xbox One X lies in its backwards-compatibility.

FIFA 18 too is taken to new levels by the enhancements - scuffs on the pitch are clearer, and player likenesses are much starker.
