Xbox Black Friday Price Predictions
The current retail price of the One X is $499. The Black Friday deals are expected to be around $50, making the total price of the system for Black Friday 2017 around $449. Additionally, you may find some major retailers that offer substantial gift cards for sales of this item in order to entice customers into the store.
The Xbox One S has been on the market for more than a year now and will see bigger discounts despite its lower starting price. Xbox One S bundles are expected to see price savings of between $70 and $120, bringing the cost of bundles for its 500GB and 1TB packages to between $179 and $229.
Xbox One X
The Microsoft Xbox One X will be the hottest video game system this Christmas. It has an octa-core CPU with 40 compute units and 6 teraflops of power, as well as 12 gigabytes of GDDR5 memory. Games run at 60 frames per second (in first-party titles) both in native 4K resolution as well as HDR.
The Xbox One X was nicknamed Project Scorpio. Microsoft is currently taking preorders on this video game console with the release date set for November 7, 2017. Microsoft says online pre-orders will ship by November 30, 2017.
One X VR
In the past, Microsoft has said that the Xbox One X will have the ability to run lag-free virtual reality gameplay via VR headsets. However, it has been dodging questions about its VR capabilities according to media reports and it hasn’t released a VR headset for it yet. The system has more than enough power to run one according to at least one expert. So you will have to stay tuned for developments on this front.
One X Games
Xbox One games and peripherals, including controllers and Kinect, will be compatible with the new system. Existing games are expected to see a slight performance improvement. There will eventually be optimised updates for several first party and third party games, including Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Minecraft, Halow Wars 2, Kilelr Instinct, Final Fantasy 15 and Rocket League.
Xbox One S
The Xbox One S was the 2016 upgrade to this video game console by Microsoft. It is 40% smaller than the original Xbox One and 1.4 pounds lighter. It includes an Ultra 4K Blu-ray player and slightly more power for gaming (although not a true 4K gaming setup). Its power supply is built-in to the machine so it eliminates the need for the bulk power supply cord. The color is a white finish with black accents rather than the traditional patchwork black. It can stand vertically or sit horizontally, allowing for flexibility in its location. In 2016, Microsoft offered the Xbox One S starting at $249.
