Xbox One X is coming out very soon! November 7th to be exact, and so the hype is at an all-time high. It’s no surprise this new console is coming out November because guess what, Xbox consoles always do. Actually so do PlayStations. It’s probably considered the ultimate time to get it out in stores right before the holidays. It generally guarantees a rush to buy, lines out the door, kids crying on Christmas because mommy and daddy didn’t manage to get the new console–haha. At least this time they are releasing the console beginning of November, instead of near the end. How nice of them to consider a couple of extra weeks for us to try and get our hands on one before the end of the year.

Another essential thing to know about Xbox One X is it is not a whole new console. This isn’t like Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Xbox One X is a high-end version of the Xbox One. That means we don’t have to worry about switching in our consoles because of no more new games. There will undoubtedly continue to be games for Xbox One, as it is the primary Xbox console.

That means there will not be games only coming out on Xbox One X. However, games will be enhanced for Xbox One X. There are already over 100 games that have been enhanced for this new high-end console. The games will have 4k and HDR support. There will be improved graphics and higher performance. Check out Xbox.com’s page about it, which includes the full list of enhanced games.

Now, just how high end is it? Well, it’s considered the most powerful console there is. A big claim is that it runs like a high-end PC. Considering the Xbox One X is $499, that is impressive. You can’t make a high-end PC for that cheap unless you know some people who want to give you new parts for free. Now, let me just tell you the only reason I have for upgrading my PC is for gaming, which I think is valid for a lot of PC gamers. That means spending hundreds of dollars on improving a few essential parts ever so often. With that in mind, $499 for a gaming console with the same power and performance is really, really tempting.

My original gaming experience was on a Sega product. I don’t have much loyalty to that anymore, considering they don’t have consoles these days. My next console was a PlayStation. It carried me through a few good years of gaming, but Xbox changed it all for me. Even though I am now a PC gamer, Xbox will always remain close to my heart, and I’ll still consider buying any new Xbox consoles that come on the market. Which by the way….there is a special edition of Xbox One X called Project Scorpio. What’s unique about it is the cool gradient design on the console. It costs the same and has the same specs. However, it’s a limited edition.

Anyway, how tempting should Xbox One X really be? Well first, let’s look to see how it compares to the PS4 Pro. Here’s a helpful, succinct chart:

FYI, “Project Scorpio” is Xbox One X. Well, from this chart alone it looks like Xbox One X beats out PS4 Pro, performance wise. Though PS4 Pro is a whole hundred American dollars cheaper, currently sitting at $399. Is it worth the extra hundred? Well, the difference in power is pretty big, and for that alone, I’d have to say yes. Also, check out the difference in graphics details between the two:

What I think is also a big question is how does Xbox One X really stack up against a PC. Will this console convert some PC players? Well, price wise it certainly wins. To build a gaming computer with similar specs, you’ll have to spend around $800 at least (that’s including a blue ray drive). Also, a computer at that price will probably have a worse FPS (frames per minute).

However, things are not always so simple as what’s the cheaper one to purchase. The big thing about this new Xbox is it’s got a lot of power going into graphics, but the CPU is not the best. What’s worst is there really isn’t much you can do about that. Right now you can buy a better CPU for your computer, and continue to upgrade it as time goes on. Overall, this is the big difference across the board with Xbox One X versus PC. You can build better gaming experience with a PC. It’s going to break the bank, and all your little nieces and nephews will get a stocking full of nothing but disappointment from you this year.

That is the choice to decide. A better gaming experience on a PC, losing all your Xbox Gold friends, and not paying rent…or an excellent gaming experience for a great deal on an Xbox One X that cannot be upgraded and will eventually need to be entirely replaced. To be honest, I don’t think this is going to convert any PC gamers, but I wouldn’t be too surprised if it turns some people away from PlayStation towards Xbox. I mean, it is the most powerful console yet.

You want this beast of a console? Well, you can still pre-order it from Microsoft, Best Buy, or Game Spot. Better act quick because places are already selling out the pre-orders.

    Getting an Xbox was not really one of my gaming priorities. Probably the closest one would be for the Xbox 360. If more games will be coming out for this new Xbox, then I just might consider!

    Looks like the xbox is really competing with the PS4 now huh? Back then, it was easy to choose between Xbox One and the PS4. Maybe now i can think twice about it.

We wanted something new. Maybe Christmas will come early for us and it will be in November. We’ll look into the Xbox one x.

    Alright this is mighty impressive especially for the performance and graphics of the Project Scorpio. But being a pc gamer myself I must say the price is rather high.
