Xbox One X Reviews Are In, Here's What The Critics Think

The unpatched Xbox version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt can run at 60fps on Xbox One X Xbox One X Nearly Sells Out At Gamestop

"For the release of the Xbox One X we wanted to revisit the game one last time and try to push the metal as hard as possible, something I think we've achieved pretty well!"

CNET also rounded up their thoughts about the console, saying that on paper it blows the original Xbox One away, but that the downside is the $500 price point and lack of exclusives...

Eurogamer's Digital Foundry just uploaded their Origins Xbox One X vs PS4 Pro showdown, and while some might argue that there appears to be parity between both platforms, one shouldn't forget that the Microsoft's new console offers a 44% to 96% resolution increase over the PS4 Pro.

The reason for this is that The Witcher 3 originally shipped on Xbox One with an unlocked framerate, but had the caveat of rendering the game at 900p.

Techno Buffalo rolled out similar sentiments in a tweet that didn't require 140 characters to characterize Microsoft's latest high-end console offering. It received mostly positive reviews including our own.

Buying Cannabis-Based CBD Medicines Online Is A Gamble
The study found 43 percent of the products had more cannabidiol and 26 percent had less cannabidiol than was noted on the label. Product labels were replaced with blinded identifiers within 2 weeks of receipt and sent for analysis of cannabinoid content.

A Reddit user, EyeBraveheart confirmed that buying a new cable and plugging it into his new Xbox One X caused the console to start working normally.

"Demand for the Xbox One X is really high".

So there you go - Destiny 2 is all set to enter the true 4K era, and the game will look better than ever as a result!

A Destiny 2 HDR update is on the way. NX Gamer, who's been following the game's Xbox One framerates since launch, created a video demonstrating how the faster hardware affected the unpatched game.
