If you are looking for a spectacular gaming experience, think no further, the X-Box One X is here and it is 40% more powerful than any other gaming console. Microsoft's X-Box One X offers a power-packed box with loads of features which makes you realize that it is worth every penny. I got a chance to experience X-Box One X at a demo event and I am really impressed.
The box houses an 8-core AMD CPU clocked at 2.3 GHz and provides faster processing and a very smooth gaming experience. I really felt the speed and smoothness during the demo and also realized that the loading time for the games were very quick. All thanks to Microsoft for packing a 12 GB of graphic memory inside the box. Gone are the days where you need to wait for ages for the game to load.
The main ingredient of the One X recipe is the 6 Teraflop GPU which offers 4K experience and very realistic detailed animations which will blow your mind. The details of the game were truly amazing and those gorgeous 4K visuals can't be described in words. Also, do not forget that X-Box One X is the only gaming console which plays games in native 4K resolution.
Having said that, with an increasing rise of games in 4K, I feel that the 1TB HDD won't be sufficient if you are an hard-core gamer. The average size of a 4K game would be around 100GB and you might need to invest in external HDDs if you will play many games.
The X-Box One X has a 4K blu-ray player which means that it can play 4K discs. It can also stream 4K content, deliver picture in 4K Ultra HD and HDR. In simple words, High Dynamic Range offers high contrast and enhances the depth of colors. I played Forza during the demo and the colors were impressive. The different seasons like autumn, winner and summer in the game were so realistic and even fine details like mud around the wheels and tire tracks on the ground were excellent. The gameplay and the control of the car was impressive and easy. This is because of the One X controller which is so ergonomic and comfortable that you won't feel any uneasiness even after hours of play.
One X delivers spatial sound technology in DTS and Dolby Atmos formats. It has also got streaming service apps like Netflix, Hulu in-built and also TV service which makes One X a complete entertainment package. If you are a parent and planning to get a gaming console for your kid, I would highly recommend X-Box One X over PS4 because this box is not only for your kid but also for you or anyone in your family who wants to enjoy theatre quality experience at home.
The game library for X-Box is very vast and in-fact the top trending games like Forza, PUBG, Gears of War and Halo are exclusive to X-Box. One X offers backward compatibility which means that if you have an old game purchased for your X-Box 360 you can still play them on X-Box One. When you signup newly with X-Box, you get a 14-day free trial for Xbox Live Gold, the console's premium online service, as well as a one-month trial of Xbox Game Pass. Game Pass is a subscription model by Microsoft and it gives access to a collection of Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles for a monthly fee. You can also gift games to your friends, stream games live to Twitch, Windows 10 laptops or tablets easily.
X-Box One X offers cross platform play which means that you can play certain multiplayer games with people on PCs or vice versa. X-Box's play anywhere feature allows game owners to choose where they want to play the game, either X-Box or PC and you can continue the game from where you left irrespective of the platform.
I would highly recommend X-Box One X for anyone who is looking to buy a gaming console or even gifting it to someone for the holiday. It is the most powerful console you can ever buy and I am sure that you will have a wonderful gaming experience. I am writing this review as part of a contest.
