Five things to consider before buying an Xbox One X
1. Save money by getting an Xbox One X bundle
Picking up an Xbox One X bundle is a much more affordable route than if you went ahead and picked up the game and console individually. This goes double for Xbox One X bundles that include multiple games, which certain retailers have been known to offer. As a general rule, bundles represent better value.
2. Don’t be a slave to Black Friday
While you’ve likely been taught to think that the best Xbox One X deals only occur on Black Friday, all of the retailers we compare prices for run seasonal sales 365 days a year. We always advise purchasers never to wait. All you need to do is pick up an Xbox One X whenever you see the best deal for you.
3. Xbox One X boasts the better visuals, Xbox One S the lower price
The Xbox One X is the only console capable of running games natively at a 4K level. Most people won’t be able to notice the difference between this and 1080p unless the same game is being played side-by-side on an X and S simultaneously, but they’ll still appreciate the higher framerates and faster load times. Its HDR and 4K working in tandem that results in some of the most lifelike visuals possible on a current-gen console.
4. You only get one Xbox One controller
Regardless of the Xbox One model you punt for, each one will always come packaged with one at least controller in the box. Sold separately they retail for an average price of £49.99 – expensive, but worthwhile for use in Xbox One X’s selection of split-screen multiplayer games.
5. Be smart to grab a bargain
There are so many retailers now stocking the Xbox One X, making it likely that there will always be at least one selling them for less than the standard RRP. If you want to pay the cheapest possible price all you need to do is be savvy and use the filter tools we here at Console Deals provide.
