Xbox One X Can Only Make It If There Are Enough Games That Take Advantage Of The New Hardware
Regarding the Xbox One X Microsoft’s recent 90 minutes conference was an opportunity to convince the world that this console is the next best thing, gamers need. But as soon as the pre-orders went live at the end of the show. It was pretty evident, the situation was otherwise. The sales pitch had fallen somewhat flat.
The most important part of a gaming system is its games. Gamers thrive on games, not the bundles, not the upgrades or the promotions. It is actually the quality and quantity of gaming content that drives all of these factors. Xbox One X might be the most powerful console with all the latest features like 4K resolution and HDR. It lacks the exclusive AAA grade titles that gamers thrive on.
Xbox One X even after the premium features still need more exclusive titles like Sony has Uncharted, Or Nintendo came up with Breath of the Wild. Yes, Forza Motorsports 7 look delightful but doesn’t quite cut it. Similarly, Gears of War and Halo feel like yesterday’s news.

One can always argue that PS4 Pro didn’t have its own big showcase games either, but considering Sony’s AAA rated exclusive library of gaming franchises like God of War, Uncharted, Metal Gear Solid etc, it doesn’t really need a showcase.
For Xbox One X games like Cuphead look astounding as ever, and the early months of 2018 look relatively packed with Ori, Crackdown 3, Sea of Thieves and State of Decay all flying the flag. But at this point of the console’s life cycle, MS needs more AAA rated exclusive titles than a handful of games. Because gamers thrive on games for consoles. Without the right games, there won’t be a need to buy X editions and Y bundles of the same console.
