I failed to mention I don't have the console lol. I'm streaming from my PC.

Hmm yeah, moving the PC over is a lot more hassle. I had it all in the same room back then. I did move the PC over to play ETS2 on the projector a couple years ago, which was very annoying as every time I turned it off to move it it had to finish installing updates.  Streaming is definitely more convenient from PC.

Really?  Didn't know anything about that

That X1X/Pro patch came about a year ago though. At this point I imagine they addressed some bugs.

I also haven't heard complaints outside of this really, so I imagine its a mostly bug free experience.

I hope so but I can tell you, it feels really good playing the witcher 3 at 60fps.

An X1X is a good move for more PC visual fidelity without actually changing platforms.

When the Xbox One launched it was roughly equivalent to a mid-range PC in terms of graphics output... However, the PC didn't stop progressing (it never does) and of course it fell behind.
The Xbox One X just brings the Xbox platform back up to parity with a mid-range PC.

If you have already invested in the Xbox platform as a whole, then the Xbox One X makes sense, just like if you are invested in the Playstation 4 platform, the Pro might make more sense.

I would actually argue the X1X made a bigger leap forward in GPU power than the base X1 attempted to do. Maybe its just the difference between low-mid GPU versus high-mid GPU.

I mean the X1X might do a better job hitting 4K than the base X1 does hitting 1080p. Although, I get impression developers are putting less effort in base X1 optimization these days.

Its nice, kinda like next gen polish in the same gen. Espeically if you're playing a game that improves visual assets for X1X.

Well I bought the xb1 X last week and I am bit disappointed as well because I don't see that much d8fference between the pro and X. I am still glad I will be able to play some games at 60fps such as gears 4 which IMO looks better at 1080p 60fps than 4k 30fps. It is my bad because I expected more on native 4k or maybe my eyes got used to higher resolution. I bought the witcher 3 to play it at 60fps as well since again, native 4k doesn't look that impressive to me.  I do have a 4ktv with hdr.

Well that always depends how far you're sitting away from the screen.
When I play a 4k game, I usually sit directly in front of my 70" TV. (just a bit over 1m). For anything else (FullHD content) I sit on my couch which is roughly 3m away from screen.

even then, don't expect the difference to be massive if you compare 4k to whatever PS4 Pro usually renders at.

I have a 60" samsung ks8000 and to be honest, I am not sure how far or close you have to be to the screen to see 4k but I think it is a me problem.  I think I am not able to distinguish resolution past 1440p.  I don't have any problem distinguishing from 720p to 1080p or 1080p to 1440p, but 1440p to a h8gher resolution? Very hard time.  Quantum break looks very good on the X especially if you played the game on the S first  like me.  720p to 1440 made a huge difference to Qb.

This is exactly why I try to be real when I talk about gaming hardware and software. I know what I want out of my gaming experience and I know what's most important to me. If I go on forums saying things to make some other gamer jealous, there is always a chance that somebody will spend hard earned money based on a lie. I couldn't do that to someone.

 

Not saying that's what happened to you but I would hate to make someone waste money.
