So are your interested in the latest Xbox One X? Let’s check out what reviweres around the world saying about the latest console of Microsoft.
According to PCGamer, the One X not that silent, has a confusing dashboard and has amazing Blu Ray playing capabilities.
The Verge termed the One X as “sleeker, smaller and faster” console. It lavished praises on the console terming it even more powerful that the PS4. However, it warned that the back of the One X could get very hot and thus the device should be kept in an open unit. It too praised it for its superb 4K abilities but rued that there are not much 4K content in Microsoft store.
In One X, Verge said, that users will also feel the space crunch as most of the games are quite big such as Halo 5 and Gears of War 4 which are about 100 GB in size. Needless to say, you need pretty good internet connection too.
The Guardian however wasn’t that kind on the One X. It termed the console as expensive, bulky and with a cumbersome UI. It said that the console has limited functionality for full HD TVs.
Trusted Reviews too criticised it for high price as Engadget. Techradar also rued that the console is expensive and its 1 TB storage still fills quite fast. Like others it too praised its 4K abilities but cautioned that it makes little sense for someone with 1080p TV to buy this.
So what you think? Tell us whether you would like to buy the One X and for what.
