Making good on its previous X018 promise, Microsoft has made the Xbox One X $399 in the US for Black Friday, available now on both Amazon and the Microsoft Store.

The Xbox One X is a monstrous gaming console, powering visuals far beyond its Xbox One S counterpart, and often beyond more expensive PC gaming rigs. Even without a 4K set to compliment it, the Xbox One X will produce faster loading, better details, and better frame rate performance across the board in all games, when compared to the Xbox One S. This is owed to the change-resilient architecture Microsoft created for Xbox platform game development.

It even enhances many backward compatible Xbox 360 titles from yesteryear including Fallout 3 and Final Fantasy XIII, giving classic games a new lease on life.

The Xbox One X has enjoyed a ton of support from game developers since its launch, with titles like Fallout 76, Battlefield V, Red Dead Redemption 2, Forza Horizon 4, and many, many more sporting improved detail, 4K resolution, and more stable frame rates. Some titles even offer alternative modes, such as 60 frames per second, for those of us without a 4K TV set.

If you've been on the fence about putting your aging base Xbox One out to pasture, this is the lowest price the Xbox One X could see for a while, and it comes highly recommended from us.
