It is Xbox One X week here at OFR and each host received the most powerful gaming console on the planet.

  • 1st impressions, go: with the very small sample size I have to judge it by, the visual upgrades are very real, and the machine runs super fast. One thing I noticed right away: Gears in 4k 60fps is ridiculous, but I noticed how much better the lighting and rendering is, it is amazeballs. Derek’s hot minute
  • Got curious when they said Gears of War 3 got enhanced & damn it’s crazy, it’s a big difference for a 360 game.
  • VG247: Xbox One X Review: does Microsoft’s super machine live up to the hype?
  • Take that estimate and double it


If the X is a little too much console for you here are some other great deals this holiday: pre-holiday Xbox One S deals start at $199wii-470887.phtml
