Xbox One X review

 

Xbox One X is a premium 4K HDR console with a storage issue

Native 4K HDR gaming ; 4K Blu-ray player built-in ; Improves 1080p experience

1TB HDD fills up fast ; Games aren’t always 60fps ; Skewed price-performance ratio

With a gaming PC's worth of graphical horsepower housed inside a deceivingly small package, the Xbox One X does what no console has done before: Native 4K HDR gaming. However, while games look absolutely stunning, with a fantastic level of detail...

Xbox One review

 

The original console is still worth considering

Excellent game selection ; Great online service ; The best controller going ; Unmatched media features ; Able to evolve constantly

Inferior graphics ; Confusing UI without Kinect ; Poor sharing options ; Ugly unit design

It might look big and bulky next to its slimmer version, the Xbox One S, but these days the older Xbox One can be found for some temptingly low prices. If you're willing to sacrifice the 4K functionality of the Xbox One S, then the Xbox One is still a...

Xbox One review

 

Considering what a success the Xbox 360 has become since its 2005 launch, with its groundbreaking network play and ever-growing media portal/hub functionality, the Xbox One's journey to shop shelves was surprisingly uncomfortable.

Kinect delivers a true next-gen interface; graphics are a bigger step up from the Xbox 360 than you might think; robust online platform

Key TV functionality currently limited outside US; currently no 3D playback, no USB multimedia playback and no memory management; Kinect makes it expensive

Xbox One review

 

The two factions of the next-gen console war have laid out their lines, Sony PlayStation 4 on one side, Microsoft Xbox One on the other. Only the lucky few, or very dedicated, will be able to afford both, continuing the gaming stand-off that's been...

Voice controls are comprehensive, games are incredibly smooth, Blu-ray player included, new controller design more refined, Kinect offers lots of clever features, turns your TV into a smarter TV, Skype experience is excellent, switching apps is smooth...

Gets hot, separate power brick needs accommodating, you need to have the console on to watch TV using pass-through, voice sometimes ignores you, parents will need to keep a closer eye on kids

The Xbox One marks the start of a new generation of entertainment, one that's centred around your big screen and one that wants to give you everything from gaming to music, to movies and more. It rolls in the internet, it brings apps and you get Skype...

Xbox One review

 

The Microsoft Xbox One is the brand's bid to win the next-gen console wars

Robust internal specs ; Oodles of potential ; Improved controls

Hulking brute of a machine ; Lack of killer launch titles ; Eye-watering price tag

Xbox One Kinect review

 

Numerous enhancements should improve the motion controller's functionality

Tracks a larger room area ; Gesture control is more versatile ; Better in uneven or no light ; improved video-chat

Kinect must be connected to console ; Not built into one ; Gesture control still a novelty to many ; "Xbox, go home" voice command

Xbox One X review: Microsoft's 4K console gets some BIG Black Friday discounts

 

A great console, but it's expensive – Black Friday is helping, though

Incredibly powerful ; 4K games look great ; 4K Blu-ray player included

Not enough 4K titles ready to play at launch ; Expensive compared with PS4 Pro

As ever, your final decision should really rest on the games you want to play. If you’re a big fan of Forza, Halo or Gears of War then, by all means, buy an Xbox One X. It’s a great piece of hardware and 4K games look great on it. Everyone else,...

Xbox One S review: Check out this great Black Friday 2017 deal

 

The Xbox One S is even cheaper this Black Friday

If you're not sure which side of the console fence you sit on, I'd recommend waiting a couple of weeks to see what Sony has to say about its highly anticipated PS4 Slim. However, if you're dead-set on getting an Xbox One, then the Xbox One S certainly...

Xbox One X

 

Xbox One X review: We look at the new 4K console including graphics comparisons and performance analysis. Is it worth the price?

Gorgeous 4K visuals ; Quiet running ; Improves performance in some games

Quality of graphics enhancements vary by game ; Small and slow hard disk ; Relatively high price

The pinnacle in console hardware, but not yet a must-buy.

Xbox One

 

Xbox One review: With the Xbox One S available now and Project Scorpio and Sony's PS4 Neo on the horizon, how well does the original Xbox One stack up in the current climate? Stuart Andrews takes another look at the original hardware, and finds that it...

Great exclusive titles ; Superb controller ; Improved software and apps ecosystem ; More strong games on the horizon

Struggling to match the PS4 on raw performance ; Big and bulky ; Superceded by the Xbox One S with Xbox One X on the way

Times are difficult for the old Xbox One. It’s facing even stiffer competition and has been superceded by a smaller, more desirable 4K-friendly update. Yet if you’ve got one or you can get one on the cheap, it’s still a very desirable games machine,...
