It’s been four months since Microsoft finally revealed what Project Scorpio was all about during the annual E3 event. As it turned out, it was actually a massive upgrade to their current generation gaming consoles that came in a tiny package: the Xbox One X.
We’re only a few weeks away from the scheduled launch of this premium version of the Xbox, which is touted the world’s most powerful console. Now might be a good time to think about whether it’s worth getting.
So far, the true 4K gaming that it offers sounds sweet, but there are a lot of things to consider before gamers decide to part with their hard-earned cash this Christmas to get one. If you’re still on the fence, we’ve compiled relevant information on this extreme gaming hardware to help you decide on whether you want to jump on the Xbox One X train or pass.
Beat that, PS4
The Xbox One X boasts over-the-top features like 4K Ultra HD, HDR technology, and Spatial Audio that allow gamers to enjoy an immersive experience while gaming. It’s also equipped with 6 Teraflops of graphical processing power and 12GB GDDR5 of graphic memory to ensure there won’t be any unwanted hiccups as you play your favorite games in full 4K glory. With these kinds of specs, even the PlayStation 4 Pro doesn’t come close.
Old games get a makeover
Another major announcement that Microsoft made about the Xbox One X aside from its monstrous specs is backwards compatibility. This means you can enjoy all your old Xbox games right off the bat. But that’s not all since some games were also graphically enhanced for the new console. The best part, they're free of charge.
Here’s the full list of enhanced games.
Value for money
So how much is a true 4K gaming console worth? Apparently, Microsoft thinks it costs
$499 or roughly P25,600. Not bad considering that the less powerful PS4 Pro launched with a $399 price tag.
