From Now And To The Future
Before you guys start throwing some good words about this article, you better see what i am about to tell you, about why Xbox One X will be superior to the Playstation 4 Pro.
For those who don’t know, today is the launch day of Xbox one X. According to the Officials of Microsoft, Xbox One X will bring a huge change to the gaming console and will become a favorite console for the gamers as stated by Xbox marketing executive Albert Panello when he is asked about “what exactly is the Xbox One X for?”
I would say the Xbox One X is for people that want to play the best versions of the games that are available. That’s really, in my opinion, the simplest way to describe it. We saw 4K internally and it really energised us and excited us. The quality of the image, the wide colour gamut, the high dynamic range, it really energised us. We were excited about the tech. We saw the industry reports and talked to TV manufacturers, and knew that that was the direction that displays were headed. We saw PC developers really embracing 4K rapidly, and creating the assets required. But, you know, 4K capable PCs are pretty expensive, and so we decided that we wanted Xbox players to be able to play the best versions of games; we want to be the device that shows off a 4K TV, which is why we have 4K Blu-ray and 4K streaming; and we want to put enough horsepower in the box to take all those amazing PC assets and bring it to your living room. At the end of the day what that means is – and I’m knocking on wood that the reviews will bear this out – but we believe that the best versions of all the games that you can play are going be the Xbox One X versions. That’s probably the simplest answer I can give.

So the point is, if you want to get the best gaming experience on console, you will only get it on Xbox One X. Before we continue, lets check out the specs between Xbox One X and Playstation 4 Pro

After looking at the specs of the two consoles, it is clear that Playstation 4 Pro were left behind compared to Xbox One X, in term of delivering 4K gaming quality on the console.
“It is useless having a high specs but there is no game in it” you might say, that is right. In term of exclusivity, Sony won a landslide from Microsoft. This is one of the biggest factor why Playstation 4 have a bigger sales compared to Xbox one. Other than Playstation 4 having a lower price than Xbox One.
Especially after Paris Games Weeks yesterday, Sony released their exclusive game trailer that makes fans more happy with Playstation 4 as their gaming console choice, like The last of Us 2, Detroit Become Human, and God of War, while Microsoft exclusive game looks lethargic.
How to make Xbox One X the choice of gamers when Sony keeps giving exclusive games? back to the answer from the Albert Panello interview when he says “I would say the Xbox One X is for people that want to play the best versions of the games that are available”
When Xbox one X is low on exclusive games there will be other games that come out on various platform, on the console, and PC, and those who were lazy to build a PC, or doesn’t have a lot of budget to upgrade their hardware every year, have to choose which console is the best that is not far from PC in term of FPS or graphic, and looking from the specs i am sure that Xbox One X can beat Playstation 4 pro. There is one example of game that is better played on Xbox One X, Assassins Creed Origins on the Xbox One X have an update to play the game on true 4K graphic, 1080, 60fps. This could happen to the newly released games or to the game that has been released, and as reported The Witcher 3 will get a graphic update on Xbox One X.
It’s not impossible that gamers will choose to buy Xbox One X because of this factor, exclusivity? we can wait right? it is impossible for Microsoft to let their monster console get dusty with the lack of exclusivity.
