We understand that Original Xbox One library of exclusive titles is relatively smaller for time being. But we’re going to talk about the options that are available from the investment point. The Xbox One X not only provides True 4K resolution, but a wider spectrum of HDR, larger color gamut.

Thing about HDR is, there are different grades of color definition and a wider color spectrum with a brighter clarity looks more beautiful compared to the standard one. Xbox One S offers HDR as well but the 4K is up scaled. The hardware is also powerful than the original Xbox One. This will enable the developers to put in more detail and juice out more performance in a game. Let us know what you think about the discontinuation of the original Xbox One.
