So we imagine you’re after any information you can get about an Xbox One X pre-order? Or maybe you need to be convinced before placing your order?
Why should I buy an Xbox One X?
Just to be clear, this is not what you’d call a ‘next-gen’ console. Instead it’s a powerful upgrade over the current Xbox One lineup. To simplify things, it’s akin to Sony’s PS4 Pro. Both consoles are aimed at gamers with a 4K HDR TV who want the best graphical performance possible on their favored console. There will be modest performance boosts on non-4K TVs too, but you’re kind of missing the point without a 4K HDR TV.
As things stand the Xbox One X will play all Xbox One games and we’re not expecting to see any games released exclusively for the Xbox One X (or so we’ve been told), so there’s certainly no reason to throw away your Xbox One S yet.
The Xbox One X is the most powerful console ever made though, even outshining some of the specs of the PS4 Pro. But given the huge asking price, you’d hope as much. The Xbox One X is making bold claims about true native 4K gaming though with its upcoming titles and if you have a 4K TV with High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology, the Xbox One X is ready to seriously impress with the likes of Forza Motorsport 7, Metro: Exodus and Anthem set to be true jaw-droppers in the graphics department.
What is the Xbox One X price?
You might want to sit down for this one. The Xbox One X will cost $649 in Australia and, naturally, this won’t include any games.
Where can I pre-order an Xbox One X?
As things stand at the time of writing, few retailers are taking Xbox One X pre-orders, but we’re fully expecting the usual suspects to be available soon as well.
What is the Xbox One X release date?
The Xbox One X will be released on November 7 2017. That’s a worldwide release date too. It’s a solid time of year to cash in on the Christmas shopping season.
What if I don’t care about 4K or want to save money?
The standard Xbox One S is a fantastic games console and you’ll easily be able to get one with a few games for probably less than $300 over at our Xbox One deals page.
