Users Are Reporting Xbox One X Problems

"Sony launched PlayStation 4 Pro last year and Microsoft Xbox One X this year, we think we still have a minimum of two years in front of us before something new is coming". Over 100 games, including Forza Motorsport 7, Assassin's Creed Origins, and Middle-earth: Shadow of War have released (or will release within the week) Xbox One X Enhanced updates to support the new 4k resolution. Players can pick up the World of Tanks X Edition Starter Kit for free in the Microsoft Store.

Nearly completely selling out of the Xbox One X on launch day could be an impressive accomplishment for Microsoft and the retailers who helped distribute that console, but that hinges entirely on how many consoles there were to sell in the first place. As with any new hardware, there will be failures, so it's impossible to know the rate of consoles bricking after just two days.

The less expensive (and less powerful) Xbox One S will remain on sale and Spencer has said he believes this is the console that will appeal to a wider audience.

You may have heard that a little something called the Xbox One X launched on Monday. The games being available on all of the console lineup makes it hard for devs to focus exclusively on the more powerful console, much more like how optimization works on PC.

There's a much more subtle nod to Xbox history on the box itself - that is, the packaging for the console - but you might not have caught it.
