How The Xbox One X Factors Into Everything
When does the next generation Xbox become the current generation of technology? The Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 have taken console gaming on a great leap forward, but what will their next generation look like? The PS4 Pro and the Xbox One X are wildcards for the gaming industry. We’re not used to seeing consoles that exist within a generation. An Xbox slim, sure, but not a new console with more power.
The Xbox One X is Microsoft’s first attempt at an iterative console. It’s not the Xbox 2, but it is something new within the same generation. Microsoft calls it the Xbox Family. Your games will play on any version of the Xbox One, backwards and forward compatible.
The Xbox One X versions will offer 4K resolution and various enhancements that the developers can choose to add based on the extra power the system has over the standard Xbox One. It plays the same games, just a little better.
At some point we are expecting VR to be an exclusive feature of Xbox One X. We also can’t rule out the HoloLens that Microsoft has been working on for years. This new iterative console proves that were are at a point when technology is progressing too quickly for standard generations.
If Microsoft sat on the Xbox One hardware for another 2-3 years, they would be incredibly far behind the curve. The Xbox One X is meant to close that gap a little, but ultimately, there will be an Xbox 2.
The Xbox 2 Release Date: Microsoft’s Next-Gen Console
The Xbox One X released in holiday of 2017, so now we begin the wait for the next generation Xbox Two. How much longer do we need to wait? Microsoft will need to let this new console breathe and test these new waters before they take the next step.
They are fully aware that this is a leap of faith, but change is healthy in an industry like this one. If the Xbox One X does well for itself (early sales numbers look promising), then we may not see the Xbox 2 until 2020 or later.
As much as they don’t want to admit it, Microsoft will also be keeping an eye on Sony. If the PlayStation 5 is released sooner than later, it will force Microsoft to adapt accordingly. Our Release Date Page is the ultimate place to keep track of the ongoing news and rumors.
Whether it’s a look at the past, or a glimpse into the future with quotes from major industry players, we’ll keep you up-to-date here.
Xbox 2 Concept Art: Form Meets Function
While the design of a console may not seem like much, today’s consumer has a very open living room with entertainment centers designed to show off their gadgets. Beyond the overall look of the console, we’ll also need to consider the functionality of its design.
How will it stay cool when the insides heat up during long gaming sessions? Will the controller change to match the new console? These are the big questions we’re asking on our concepts page.
Talented artists like Danny Haymond and David Hansson will bring the future of Xbox to life for all to see.
Xbox Two vs PS5
Console wars are a given when it comes to the game industry. Microsoft and Sony traded some serious blows during the months leading up to the Xbox One and PS4 release. There’s not doubt in my mind that they will come to blows again when the next generation consoles are on the horizon.
Our Xbox Two vs PS5 page is the place to find out how this epic battle will take place, and what it means for gamers. Come find out how the battle will go down!
Xbox 2 Specs: GPU, RAM, Hard Drives and Much More!
Are you the person who goes hunting for specs when a console is announced? Does the sound of teraflops get your disc drive spinning? You’ve come to the right place. Our Xbox Two specs page is where we dive into the details.
We’ll look at the Xbox One X and its insides first, then we’ll look at industry trends to find out what the next console could have under the hood. If it’s coming down the pipeline, we’re going to talk about it, so come join the conversation!
Xbox 2 Games: New Experiences and Old Friends
Microsoft has made it very clear that they want gamers to keep their games when they move forward. The big push forward with backwards compatibility on Xbox One is a sign of that. Whether you own an Xbox One, an S, or the new Xbox One X, every game works on all three now and going forward.
It’s an environment very similar to PC, where generational lines are blurred. The Xbox 2 will hopefully continue this trend and bring us a mixture of experiences both new and old.
We’ll have incredible new experiences and entries in our favorite franchises, but we’ll also have everything that came before. Find out more on our Xbox Two Games Page.
The End of The Xbox One Family
Microsoft refers to the Xbox One, the S, and the X as part of one Xbox Family. This means that you can play your games on any one of these consoles and use your accessories on each of them too. No one gets left behind.
It’s pretty exciting, especially when you look at the effort Microsoft has put into backwards compatibility. With a huge selection of Xbox 360 and original Xbox titles available to play on the current generation, the plan is to keep this compatibility moving forward.
Can they do it? Will they be able to transition to the Xbox 2 and still keep everything backwards compatible? If anyone can do it, it’s them. With Phil Spencer at the head of the charge, the possibilities are endless.
Come check out our page on The End of the Xbox One to see how we believe Microsoft will make this important transition into the future.
