Xbox One X Launches Worldwide This Week


The Xbox One X released just yesterday, but eyes have already begun turning towards the next generation of gaming consoles.

It is very early days to be thinking about the next PlayStation or Xbox as the new iterations of these consoles are quite new.

Xbox's other Kiwi superfans - Ian, Kate and Searle - also received their Xbox One X before midnight in "supercar style", making them the first gamers in the world to get an Xbox One X. They were selected via competition to find NZ's most passionate Xbox fans by Mighty Ape Games. As with any new hardware, there will be failures, so it's impossible to know the rate of consoles bricking after just two days.

You didn't think Microsoft's console would be free of launch errors, did you? Xbox One X is retailing for $499.

Twitter said that the employee responsible was working their last day with the company, in the customer support sector. Twitter is committed to transparency and keeping people informed about what's happening in the world.

But nearly everything else about the console is exactly the same as its much more affordable counterpart, the Xbox One S, which also rings in at half the price: $250.

Retailer GameStop sold almost all of its Xbox One X stock on launch day, November 7, the store has announced, according to The Wall Street Journal. The games being available on all of the console lineup makes it hard for devs to focus exclusively on the more powerful console, much more like how optimization works on PC.

Top-end resolution and improved effects wouldn't count for much without stable 60fps performance, but the fact is that Diablo 3 has yet to show any significant dips below that number on Xbox One X so far.
