Xbox One X

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty out of the loop these days, compared to when i got a 360 and XB1 launch day.  What's the deal with the Xbox One X?  is this an entirely new console?  I see that it can play XB1 games smoother and graphically better.  Does this require a 4k TV?  are there any games that are exclusive to the XB1X vs the XB1?

This explains it far better than anything else. It is still an XBox One. It will just make all your games run better and certain games will get Enhanced patches to look even better! Will look amazing even on 1080p TV due to Supersampling.

I have played a few enhanced games so far and I am super impressed. Load times are better and some of the games are just jaw dropping. Titanfall 2 and Madden just look so, so good. I even tried out Oblivion for about 20min. even that 10+ year game looks so much better.

The quick review...

 

If you like better VISUALS and SMOOTHER frame rates even on 1080p Super sampled than the XB1X is for you!!

16x Anti-Aliasing and Hardware V-Synch do a lot even on unpatched games!

 

Love this thing!!

Agreed! Super sampling is the real deal, and games running at max res (dynamic res games) with no frame drops and no more fucking shimmering and jaggies, awesome!

Halo 5: almost like a new game

D3: no frame drops in the most hectic action

Gears 4: incredible

BF1: max resolution, increased texture clarity and no frame drops - unpatched ta boot

Destiny 2: rock solid frames, better tex filtering - also unpatched

I still need to fire up The Division on this bad boy.  Looking forward to its X1XE patch.

Same here, it's already a good looking game, can't wait.

Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, holy shit is this game awesome! Easily one of the best looking, and plays really good too, enhanced games yet.

looks like just a performance upgrade at this time with 60 fps and faster load times.  I'll wait and see until the new games coming out get better.  While some games that have come out are rushed or very buggy.

I’m in the same boat. Pretty pricey for a visual upgrade but once bugs are worked out and maybe price drops a bit I’ll reconsider.
