Xbox One X Scorpio Edition First Look: Unboxing, Games and PS4 Pro Comparison

On November 7th, 2017, the Xbox One X was released. The most powerful games console ever produced, Microsoft’s new machine enables gamers to experience graphical sophistication normally reserved for top-end PC gamers.

Featuring native 4K and HDR functionality, those who took delivery of the highly-anticipated console on Tuesday will be some of the first to experience true 4K gaming on the small screen.

Currently, the most expensive console on the market, priced at £449, many gamers have been left to wonder if Xbox One X is worth its hefty price tag. FinalBoss’ own gaming extraordinaire Ryan had the Scorpio Edition console on pre-order from since it’s initial announcement and has been taking a closer look at this limited-edition Xbox One X. In his unboxing video below, he’ll be looking to answer that very question!

Keep reading, and watching, to find out more about the Xbox One X.

Xbox One X vs. PS4 Pro

Gaming enthusiasts across the globe will know all about the differences between the PS4 Pro and the Xbox One X. But what if you’re a technophobic amateur, like me?

The PS4 Pro console launched a year ago, supposedly offering gamers 4K experiences and an enhanced style of play. So why has it taken Microsoft so long to catch up their rivals? And what are the differences between the Xbox One X and the PS4 Pro?

The PS4 Pro in its current form is not a true 4K console. Instead, it upscales games for 4K TVs, which means while they look sharper and run better, most games aren’t native 4K, but instead use a clever checkerboarding upscaling technique. The Xbox One X, however, doesn’t mess around on this front. It’s a much more powerful machine, able to not only display true 4K, but run larger games at a smoother pace, giving you better overall gaming experience.

For casual gamers, this isn’t going to change your life. However, for those dedicated to the ultimate in gaming experiences, or people who just enjoy the richest and most immersive of experiences, there is currently little contest between the consoles. The Xbox One X took a year longer to develop because it outclasses Sony’s PS4 Pro in all but one respect: it does not support virtual reality gaming.

Essentially, if you’re looking for the best console gaming has to offer, the X is your go-to machine. However, the PS4 Pro does offer enhanced play over standard Xboxes and PS4s and is a fair bit cheaper than an Xbox One X, so even with the release of the Xbox One X, we can’t discount the merits of Sony’s PS4 Pro.

Xbox One X Games

Not all games available on the Xbox One feature 4K, HDR graphical abilities. While many games will be sharper by default, a product of the Xbox One X’s enhanced features, there is currently only a limited base of true Xbox One X gaming experiences.

So what titles should you be picking up with your new console?

  • Gears of War 4
  • Assassin’s Creed Origins
  • Call of Duty: WW2
  • Halo 5: Guardians
  • Fifa 18
  • Forza Motorsport 7
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider
  • Middle-earth: Shadow of War
  • Mafia III
  • Minecraft

These are just a few of the 4K titles available for new console owners, however. Check out the full list here on the official Xbox website.
