Whoa, if you like the letter X, you’ll be excited for all the new products coming out in the next seven days. Remember when X just meant porn?
So today the iPhone X makes its debut, followed by the Xbox One X next week.
I haven’t received my console for review. Something about “not doing reviews as my primary job” makes me have to buy the consoles these days (getting old sucks), but let me paraphrase all the reviews I’ve seen in an IGN-way:
The best Xbox One ever. If you have a 4K TV, you should get an Xbox One X.
There, that was easy, and Microsoft didn’t even send me a console. The nerve.. LOL.
I still prefer PC gaming. I don’t have as large of a monitor for my PC gaming as I do for my Xbox, but it is nice to
be able to play games I bought eons ago on Steam without having to go through a massive process. My monitor is a 1440p one with 1ms refresh…and on a GeForce Ti card, frame rates are never a problem.
The nice thing about my PC is that I can just keep expanding with another drive or two or three. I think I have 10TB of space now.
Because of the 4K games on my Xbox One taking up an insane amount of space (100GB+ per game), having a console with only 1TB of space is almost criminal, especially since they have released 2TB consoles for the Xbox One S.
In order to prepare, I did buy one of those aftermarket Xbox specific drives. The one I bought is an 8TB (!) drive with 2 USB ports..but for some reason, even though it requires it’s own plug (not just usb) for power, you can’t charge your controller with it…that is a whole lot of weird.
Okay those are my ramblings for today. I hear there’s some new game out today — call of something or other..that I need to play.
