Xbox One X in 2020 – worth it? (Review)

by birtanpublished on November 2, 2020

I recently bought the xbox one x specifically the cyberpunk 2077 model for the great price of 380 canadian before tax which translates to a bit less than 300 us dollars for a console capable of 4k gaming which is very important for me because i have a fairly large 4k tv this seems to be a great deal but the next generation of consoles is right around the corner and so that does bring up a difficult question hey how's it going i'm josh from 91 tech and today we're taking a look at the xbox one x is it still worth buying in 2020

so to answer the question right out of the gate here generally i'd say no the xbox one x is no longer worth buying you should wait for the xbox series x and put your money towards that however with deals and discounts being more common than ever it might be tempting to just go ahead and grab it especially if you've been itching to get into 4k gaming as it stands the xbox one x is technically the most powerful console available to buy right now the ps4 pro is no slouch but the xbox

One x is able to play the majority of newer titles in 4k often at 60fps whereas the ps4 pro to hit 60fps usually needs to stick around 1440p or 1080p just in general it's not as capable as the xbox one x but that doesn't really matter so much with the next generation of consoles coming around what does matter is that all the new games coming for the xbox series x at the end of this year are going to still be available on xbox one and microsoft intends to keep this

The case for their own games for at least the next couple years that means halo infinite will be fully playable on xbox one this is a very consumer-friendly decision on xbox's part and one sony isn't following there's going to be a lot of ps5 exclusives from day one that's actually a big reason why i bought the xbox one x i plan on buying the ps5 later this year when it comes out not only do i prefer their exclusives but xbox games will be also available on older hardware as well as pc i do own a pc and it's a fairly beefy

One with a 9900k and rtx 2700 super but i wanted something easy to use with my tv so i could game from my couch a position i find much more comfortable than hunched over my keyboard for any games where frame rate matters like shooters i'll stick to my pc but otherwise i enjoy playing it on xbox i did have an xbox one s but i really had an itch for some 4k gaming couple that with the spectacular in my opinion design of the cyberpunk xbox one x cyberpunk also being included and of

Course the whole package only being about 300 bucks and i was fully on board and just uh pause for a sec here look at this design it is gorgeous i love the aesthetic here even though i don't really know what to expect from cyberpunk i'm not sure if it's a game we'll really enjoy i tried the witcher 3 and wasn't huge on it which is a very unpopular opinion but i only played a couple hours of it so that's probably why regardless this console looks gorgeous and the general design of the xbox one x is very sleek as well it's really not

Much bigger than the xbox one s and i was actually surprised by that considering how much beefier the hardware is now yes i am kind of dumb for not just waiting for the ps5 especially because i already have the one s and my pc can play any new xbox games coming out but this video here does ensure that the xbox is a tax write-off so there's that and i've been enjoying playing the console a lot i was very disappointed to realize something i should have researched beforehand

A lot of games that came out before the xbox one x in 2017 haven't been updated to take advantage of the hardware recently i was going through a bit of assassin's creed unity again a game i haven't played in years and it was quite disappointed that i was stuck playing in 1080p although generally performance should be better than the original or 1s thanks to the stronger hardware where am i going with this well the xbox one x or any xbox one really shouldn't be worth it for most of you but for those who just can't wait to game in 4k or

Don't care about the next generation or want to get the ps5 down the line instead and has a lot of money to spend with a good discount the xbox one x is an enticing option as we get closer to the next generation launch as well as afterwards prices are just gonna keep going down it might even be worth it to pick up the one x after the series x comes out as prices likely will get slashed even further this is all right and fun but to buy it right now you actually need to find an xbox one in the first place and that

Might be more difficult than one would expect current amazon listings are almost all overpriced and pretty short in stock and even the microsoft website doesn't have any available best buy doesn't seem to have it either and the limited selection may only get worse as time goes on here the cyberpunk system was the final special edition xbox to be released so it's really tough to say where you can find and buy an xbox one x gamestop does have it for 360 bucks used or refurbished and that's

Pretty bad i would expect to see it advertised more as we approach black friday and the holiday season as stores are going to want to clear out inventory but right at this moment of nearly august 2020 it's pretty darn difficult to get a hold of one but have no fear the used market is here turning to ebay.com we're seeing some absolutely absurd prices apparently it's a good thing i got the cyberpunk xbox when i did because it already seems to be worth about double what i paid for it that's ridiculous and while some of this price

Gouging may be due to current world defense right now it looks like buying a console in general is much more difficult than it should be mind you there are some reasonable prices but if you're not getting it for around 300 bucks i'd say it isn't worth it especially if you have to go with used or refurbished and to be clear if you look around or take some time to participate in some bidding wars you might find a deal the best place to look is probably your local online marketplace such as craigslist or facebook marketplace

Oftentimes people just want to get rid of stuff and get cash quick and with the new consoles coming out a lot of people are going to want to sell their xbox so that they can afford that of course with the current situation of you know the world ending and all uh you might want to be careful with doing any local transactions so just be smart about it ultimately while the xbox one x is absolutely worth what i paid for it in 2020 it isn't worth what i'm finding it for right now funnily enough i went into this review planning on fully recommending the xbox

One x after all i've really enjoyed it and the price i've paid for it seemed very fair but the price you might have to pay from the places i've mentioned isn't fair and so you'd be better off putting that money towards the xbox series x and actually you'd probably be better off doing that anyways the xbox series x hardware is going to completely outclass the xbox one x this is a very exciting time to be into video games the next generation of consoles for once aren't going to be just underpowered pcs packaged and sold for 400 bucks

They're basically going to be high-end pcs if not better and that is pretty awesome i think a lot of us if we did put our money into something like the xbox one x and you know they're not a youtuber like me they'd probably regret not just putting that money towards the next round of consoles and of course if you already have an xbox one just get the series x don't pull a me and get the 4k system despite already having a perfectly fine 1s i don't regret the purchase but if i wasn't a tech youtuber who can spend his

Money a little bit more loosely than others when it comes to tech it definitely wouldn't have been a smart move i'm pretty much about done here there's not a lot to say the xbox one x as much as it was worth what i paid for it in my opinion unless you can find it for that and even if you can you're probably better off waiting for the next generation but what do you think any of you own the xbox one or 1s or 1x let me know in the comments down below oh also what game are you most excited for

That was announced at the xbox conference let me know for me it's definitely halo infinite even though it looks uh controversial to say in the least if you found this video interesting or even helpful maybe hit that like button and consider subscribing for more content just like this you can follow me over on twitter and instagram 91 underscore tech if you'd like to for some reason and without all being said thank you so much for watching i'm josh from 91 tech and i will see you

All next time you
