Guide to Xbox One Consoles
Xbox One consoles are the eighth-generation console by Microsoft. Released in 2013, the Xbox One is the third console in the exclusive Xbox family after the Microsoft Xbox 360. It's known for its multimedia features, sleek controller design, as well as voice navigation.
Why Use Xbox One?
Microsoft Xbox One comes with a TV integration feature for those who already have satellite or cable set-top boxes. The console allows easy setup via the HDMI ports, and you enjoy hands-free control of your TV via the Kinect voice control. It also comes with a Blu-ray disc drive that you can use to play all your favorite DVDs and Blu-ray movies.
Xbox One has one of the best lineups of next-generation games, including racing, fighting, sports, adventure, and action games. Even better, you can go for bundled consoles that come with free games, such as the Minecraft Xbox One consoles.
The Xbox One stores all its games on its hard drive that offers up to 1TB of storage capacity. This is enough storage for any avid gamer. The 500GB models such as the Xbox One S 500GB are more affordable and allow you to add an external USB hard drive in case the built-in storage isn't enough. There's also unlimited cloud storage for all Xbox One users, whether you're an Xbox Live Gold subscriber or not. These consoles come with their own Xbox One controllers for cost-effectiveness.
Xbox One X vs. Xbox One S
In terms of performance, the Xbox One X has a custom 2.3GHz processor with eight cores, while the Xbox One S console bundles come with a 1.75GHz AMD CPU with eight cores. This means that the One X offers a 4K visual experience. The One S provides full 1080p HD, which is suitable for less graphics-intensive games.
When it comes to storage, the One X is only available in the 1TB model, which is enough to hold several high-intensive games. The One S, on the other hand, comes in 500GB and 1TB options, to offer you more versatility according to your gaming needs. Both consoles have high-performing RAMs for lag-free gaming. The Xbox One X has a 12GB GDDR5 RAM, while the One S has an 8GB DDR3 RAM.
