    Microsoft's got some GREAT news - the Xbox One X is officially a success!

    Microsoft's got some GREAT news - the Xbox One X is officially a success!


    [/i]THE XBOX ONE X is the most powerful console in the world and despite a high price, Microsoft has proved that the decision to release a 4K games upgrade of the original Xbox One, was well worth it.

    Xbox One X is officially a huge success for Microsoft.


    The souped-up "world's most powerful console" has gone down a storm with gamers.


    Figures show the firm had a strong last quarter of 2017.


    Growth was up 8% in gaming revenue and it's all being put down to the November release of the 4K mega-machine.


    A report by the video games firm said: "Gaming revenue grew 8 percent driven by Xbox hardware revenue growth from the Xbox One X launch.


    "Xbox software services revenue grew 4 percent from continued momentum in digital distribution, partially offset by prior year first-party triple-A title launches.


    “Xbox Live monthly active users grew 7 percent to 59 million with continued growth across Xbox One, Windows 10, and mobile platforms.”


    It turns the screw on rival PlayStation as, for the first time in years, Microsoft can now definitively say they have the world's most powerful machine.[/i]

    MS and XB seem to be making improvments one service, one system (business related that is) at a time and it seems to be working. Hell I just ignore the PS version of fallout 4 and brought the DLC (creation club - DLC) on the XB.

    They have this pony's ears pricked - I hop E3 2018 has XB announcing games that are not just a bunch of pixel art indies.

    I would buy a PS4 Pro or an Xbox One X, but it's not worth it for me when they don't have any games that I like.

    There's nothing there for you that you'd like to play?
    The PS4 has a decently large library by now.

    There are a few, but I have already played them (Tales of Zestiria and Tales of Berseria)
    I very rarely play single player games anymore, I don't have the energy and attention span for them unless it's a franchise I really care for.

    With any luck all 3 of them will be able to be successful going forward.

    I've greatly enjoyed my X1X! It's a hellova piece of hardware. FORZA HORIZON 3 in 4k running equivalent to PC ULTRA settings boggles the mind!

    This article is a bit overly positive, trying to paint success. There is clearly a market for it, and it did well, but I don't think it met its' targets.

    Great. Competition is great. Good to see all of the big 3 taking steps forward rather than backwards.

    Best time on the xbox was playing with you mate. PUBG. My mate who played with us is getting his own XB1-S so he can play with us mate. Question is do you have a PS4 and BF1?

    I feel that the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro are a step backwards.

    I understand what you're implying, but I love Microsoft as a company and have been rooting for them especially ever since Phil Spencer took over their gaming division

    The article is just bizarre as no other industry analysts or gaming journalists are talking about it in this way.

    And yet, despite such great news, no actual sales figures were released.

    Why doesn't Microsoft release sales figures when both Sony and Nintendo do?

    I was wondering about that too. I think it's ridiculous that Microsoft, of all people, are too shy to share their console sales.

    I am sure they have their reason and I am happy to give them a chance. While I wait to see the E3 2018, which I guess is MS last chance to show all of us they are still necessary. If they fail this year I am sure a lot of folks will write of the XB1.

    They have a lot of great Idea's, and re implementing them one at a time which is good. I think if they bundled Game Pass with games with gold, kind of make it a successor to gold, that would make even more people happy. but since we have PS Plus and NOW I can not see MS combining the services yet.

    hopefully the next thing we see is:

    Oculus rift or HTC Vive support for the XB1-X and actual AAA exclusives, not just 40 odd indie console exclusives. Crack down does not count and Sea of Thieves seems like a niche game to me.

    again I can see them making positive moves. I just hope they keep up the momentum no matter how slow it is.
