Xbox One X Launches Worldwide This Week

The Xbox One X was only released yesterday, but multiple reports from Reddit and ResetEra have claimed that a very small portion of the consoles aren't working as they should.

So far, the Xbox One X has been quite popular and many games are getting updates which will see them perform better thanks to the new hardware. These will join Assassin's Creed, The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion, Fallout 3, and Halo 3, for a total of seven Xbox 360 games that are getting Xbox One X enhancements. On PC, this is just an on/off toggle, and to be honest it doesn't radically affect the look of the game in Diablo's dark dungeons - only in brighter exterior scenes.

They found one great thing about the Xbox One X: Playing games optimized for the console on the 4K TV (with another fancy visual feature, HDR, or high dynamic range) is an unbelievable visual experience.

If the latter turns out to be true, it could also be a smart move from Microsoft to build up more demand for the console due to scarcity. "We're excited to offer gamers the world's most powerful console with access to the largest games lineup in Xbox history - more than 1,300 titles and more than 220 exclusives".

Thanks to geography, New Zealand customers were the first in the world to get their hands on Microsoft's new console. For those that want a cheaper alternative, you can always pick up an Xbox One S for around $200 or wait it out for special holiday bundles.
