Some annoyances I have had:
* No 1440P support.
* Console isn't telling me what updates are available for games unless I attempt to launch the game.
* Still hate the UI. It's just not convenient to use with the UI scrolling left, right, up and down, hidden menu's, sub-menu's and so on.
* No Kinect Port. (Yeah yeah, I know. I enjoy using the voice commands to launch apps though.)

Otherwise... It's still very much an Xbox One, with all the good and the bad baggage that goes with it.
The External Hard Drive support is still amazing, Sony and Nintendo needs to catch on... Just plugged my drive in and... Up comes 250+ games already installed.

Also... Not sure I like the texturing on the new Xbox One controllers... Or if I am just used to the launch Xbox One controllers more uniform feel, see how I go over the next few days I guess.

 

PS4 has had external HDD support for quite some time now.

Didn’t MS just state the X1X will support 1440p displays?!

Edit: Seems to be coming at a later date.

The One X will eventually have native support for 1440p (2560 x 1440) monitors, as confirmed by Microsoft’s Kevin Gammill on Twitter. Gammill later clarified that 1440p support won't be ready immediately but is “coming soon.”



Predictions (Made July 2019)

LTD: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m       2019 : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m        2020: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)

I can confidently say... The Xbox One X doesn't have 1440P support right now.

Tried it on two different 1440P displays, different HDMI cables (Including the one that came with the console.) and took the splitter out of the equation. (Which I shouldn't have to anyway as it handles 1440P 60fps from my PC just fine.)

No go.

Digging into the issue and doing some research... Apparently it's coming in the future, just like a bulk of the enhanced games (There is only a handful right now), rather than on release. Which sucks.
https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2017/11/2/16597100/xbox-one-x-1440p-support-confirmed

So I am stuck using peasant 1080P. At-least I can use 10-bit colour though.

Apparantly the user interface is also stuck at 1080P regardless of your resolution, which also sucks.
The bright side is... The Xbox One's UI uses allot of sharp and clean lines, so it doesn't upscale badly, but it would have been nicer if it would have been at native res.

UI was initially supposed to be at 4K, but they decided to make it 1080p to free up a bit more ram (8gb --> 9gb) for the developers to use, which is a great move imo.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Will be getting mine early next year. I want to hear some thoughts on games.

did not expect it to be quite so hard to get one, I am on backorder now with delivery in December :(

Yep the demand is even big in some of the countries in Europe who usually don't even like Xbox, the demand is deffenitely greater then expected. Lets hope you get it a bit earlier, Microsoft did say many times they will do heavy-duty resupplying 

Retailers even in the UK were reporting they were getting much less stock than at the X1 launch though.

Xbox One's drive support seems to be more intuitive and Sony should take note. - It's treated as part of the system, It's essentially transparent once you have it set-up. Heck... Even once you fill the drive up it seamlessly starts using the next without any intervention.

The Playstation 4 you can have two external hard drives, but you can only use one for games, apps and add-ons.
You are also limited to 8 Terabytes.
Also... And I quote directly from Sony: "You cannot save application saved data, themes or screenshot/video clips to extended storage."

https://www.playstation.com/en-au/get-help/help-library/system---hardware/storage---data/ps4--external-hdd-support/

So whilst you are correct the Playstation 4 has had drive support for awhile, it's still not up to par with the Xbox One.
Nintendo should also take some serious note, especially with the Switch.

No it shouldn't. Because the update for that hasn't been rolled out yet.

Not only does it not work on my Xbox One X and 1440P panels (If my word isn't sufficient evidence). But Microsoft itself said so.

Well. It's a good thing the UI is using such sharp clean, bold lines and colours as they upscale to higher resolutions better. - Text and images still look soft though.

Just gave Halo 5 a quick run through to see how things stack up.

The graphics issues like short shadow and object pop-in still persists in the campaign.
Things do look cleaner and sharper as it's being rendered at a much higher resolution though.

Halo 3 looks sharper and cleaner. (Although could still be better if I could *actually* display the game at 1440P).
But it's still clearly a 7th gen title. The controls feel much improved as it's a locked 30fps now.

In my opinion Halo 3 in the MCC is still the better release as it's sporting a full 60fps, if it gets Xbox One X Enhanced @ full 4k +60fps then it might end up being the definitive version outside of a remake/remaster in the future.

One word of warning though... Games are increasing in size, Halo 5 is almost 110GB.
The internal storage is 780GB free out of 1 Terabyte once you first plug the Xbox One X in, so it's not going to last the distance.

Are you trolling by any chance?
