Xbox One X, the first true 4K video game console, is launching worldwide today. While the Xbox One X is an expensive box, from a hardware standpoint, you're getting a very powerful and capable machine. You'll be hard pressed to build a comparably powerful PC for $500. On top of that, you get a 4K HDR Blu-ray player, wh

I can make a 500$ PC that will run 4K @30fps with low/med settings. Just like that ShitBox One X

edit: I can't put BRPlayer inside though, but if you insist on having redundant tech, I could put a CDRW and a floppy drive.

Man you two are so superior! One using a tired old cliché proven wrong theory he can build a gaming pc of quality for 500 and the other that is so dumb he doesn't realize 100's of stores selling console games on disk.

Well can consoles:

- Make you money via productivity s/w or do day-to-day tasks a PC can?
- Have remotely the same inventory of games a PC has?
- Be modular/scalable so when new tech comes be upgradable like a PC?
- Have almost any kind of removal media connectable like a PC?
- Be repairable so you can garnish parts if required quick like a PC?

Consoles have their place as mundane entertainment boxes (at the cottage on a rainy day) but I can do 10x more on a PC/Laptop which means REAL WORLD WORK AND CASH for me while also being a mid/high-end gaming experience. Consoles don't remotely have that flexibility: never will.

A console is great for my kids, myself is having a PC. :)

But honestly XboX one X? I imagine how desperate the people at MS were, when trying to find a name for this thing.

"Sony is doing PS1,2,3,4, that's shit! We are better, so we will have a better name! Who would name a console X1,2,3,4? *sniffing a line of cocaine* We need more X! XBoX One X! That's it! Great!"

Poor. Stay simple, skip that stupid naming marketing annoyancy. But MS is having fun with that kind of shit.

Indeed... let the "grown ups" have the PC and use the console for mindless brain-fart entertainment during a snowy day.

Now if only they'd dev the game FIRST for the PC then dumb-it-down for the consoles. Pretty gawd damn insulting seeing the supposed UP-PORT from console->PC when its quite evident the game should have been shown much better first on superior specs THEN drop it down for the mini-PCs.. err.. consoles. Very Happy
