Engadget Review

As promised, the Xbox One X is the most powerful game console ever. In practice, though, it really just puts Microsoft on equal footing with Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro. 4K/HDR enhanced games look great, but it’s lack of VR is disappointing in 2017.

Pros
  • Most powerful hardware ever in a home console
  • Solid selection of enhanced titles
  • 4K Blu-ray drive is great for movie fans
Cons
  • Expensive
  • Not worth it if you don’t have a 4K TV
  • Still no VR support
