The Xbox One X is available to pre-order from certain retailers, although it might be best not to hold off too long considering how quick the Project Scorpio edition sold out a few weeks ago.

More importantly, at least for this article, is that Microsoft has confirmed a few more titles which will benefit from an enhanced performance on the upcoming powerful console. Although PC gamers are unlikely to be impressed, the added power in comparison to the Xbox One S and PlayStation 4 PRO means that the Xbox One X will house the definitive version of these games.

Which games will be receiving the Xbox One X treatment?

"Assassin's Creed Origins" is one of the biggest games set to be released in October, just before the launch of Microsoft's updated console. Ubisoft's latest entry into their massive franchise is set to spice things up with a unique Egyptian setting and combat updated to deliver a more hard-hitting experience.

"Crackdown 3," whenever it is finally released, will receive the benefits of being on an improved console as-well. The large-scale destruction action-adventure is still in development and should be released sometime in 2018.

For some already released games, "Dead Rising 4," "Dishonored 2," "Fallout 4," and "Gears of War 4" are just some titles receiving an enhanced version for the Xbox One X.

This should not mean they need to be repurchased, just that they can be played on the upcoming console and will benefit from its added power.


On Microsoft's site, they proudly quote that the Xbox One X is 40% stronger than any other console. The console boasts an 8-core AMD CPU clocked at 2.3GHz. This is a step above the PlayStation 4 PRO, which houses a 2.13GHz processor.

The vanilla consoles stood at under 1.7GHz, so they do not even compare.

Regarding a graphics card, Scorpio is also a step above the competition, boasting a 6 TFLOPS GPU capable of 326GB/s. The PS4 Pro lags behind at 218GB/s. They are both impressive, for a console anyway, but the upcoming console is the best on the market.

More importantly, Microsoft is aiming to support a full 4K experience at 60fps, while the PS4 PRO only has a handful of titles capable of supporting that type of performance.

Priced at $499.99, the Xbox One X pushes the limits of what is acceptable for a console. At that price, it is almost worth spending a bit more to pick up a gaming PC. Still, 4K support is far from cheap, so this is an option worth considering for those who own a 4K television.
