2017 saw the long-awaited release of Microsoft’s Xbox One X, and we’ve been diligently testing it out for this review.
Here’s what we loved: The graphics are insane. So impressive; these 4K visuals hit every mark and it made the gameplay even better. We also loved that this gaming machine made essentially no sound. There was no whirring and clicking as it turned on or shut down. No one likes to game when it sounds like your console is having a stroke. Oh, and the One X has a Blu-ray player which is the cherry on top.
What we didn’t love: The price. Maybe because it hasn’t been on the market all that long the price is still relatively exaggerated. However, it’ll likely go down in the following years. The other thing we were actually shocked to discover was that the hard drive was only 1TB. Most games are over 100GB, so you’ll need an external hard drive.
Overall, the Xbox One X was fun to test out and we highly enjoyed playing on this console. Is it the best on the market? We don’t think so.
