The Xbox One X seems legit

The Xbox One X represents the start of Microsoft's fight back in the evolving console war, which, so far this gen, has been dominated by Sony's PlayStation. Multi-platform games moderately outperformed the Xbox One versions on PlayStation 4, but that should no longer be the case with the Xbox One X, which is 50% more powerful even than Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro.

With the largest line-up of console games, now spanning generations thanks to backwards compatibility, the Xbox platform is an amazing place to play, and with the X, it should become the best place to play, as games will look better and run faster.
