What Microsoft Actually Got Right With The Xbox One

8. Xbox One X

The Xbox One X is a complicated beast of a machine in the sense that, for all its merits, it’s a tough product to recommend to someone. Touted by Microsoft as the most powerful console ever made, the One X does indeed live up to that title thanks to its impressive hardware specs. Essentially, the One X is a pretty powerful gaming PC masquerading as a console and takes full advantage of a 4K gaming experience. Unfortunately, while there’s a lot to like about the hardware itself, Microsoft has done a poor job supporting it, as there is still a dearth of exclusive titles available to really take advantage of it.

Undoubtedly, the One X is superior to the PS4 Pro in terms of technical specifications, but Sony has a lot more games to offer players and in the end, software wins out. That being said, I still think the Xbox One X is something Microsoft got right from a hardware point of view, as it is a significant step up from the base model Xbox One. I just wish the company would allow the X to reach its full potential by, you know, releasing some must-have games for it. Source: PC World

7. Stat Tracking

Maybe I’m alone in this, but I adore the stat tracking features built into the Xbox One dashboard. Building upon the Achievements system introduced on Xbox 360, the Xbox One has detailed stats for every game you play, from total time played to things like matches won if it’s a multiplayer title. Better yet, you can see how you rank against all your friends in each category (I have nothing on the amount of weeks – yes, weeks – some of my friends have sunk into Destiny) and there’s a running tally ranking you against your friends in achievement points earned each month.

Overall, this isn’t an important or even necessary feature, but it’s still interesting nonetheless and I’m surprised neither Sony or Nintendo have introduced something similar on their consoles (the Switch tracks your play time, but it’s nowhere near as comprehensive as the Xbox One’s system).
