Powerful Console: Xbox One X vs PS4 PRO

XBOX ONE X. That’s the official name Microsoft has given to Project Scorpio, the upcoming 4K-ready Xbox One successor that took center stage at Microsoft’s recent E3 2017 press conference.

It will, in Microsoft’s words, be “the most powerful console ever.” That was Microsoft’s main message for the show, repeatedly emphasizing the Xbox One X’s advantages over the competing PlayStation 4 Pro (without ever mentioning its rival console by name, of course). And it sure is a powerful console. During its E3 press conference, Microsoft touted a “worldwide” release on November 7 for the Xbox One X, but the company has so far listed prices in only five currencies: $499 USD, £449 GBP, €499 EUR, $599 CAD, and $649 AUD.

Microsoft also has yet to allow pre-orders—presumably because FCC approval of the console is still pending. That hasn’t stopped some US retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, and Walmart from having live listings for the Xbox One X, of course, but you can’t currently reserve a system. According to an IGN with Microsoft’s Albert Penello, the company has planned a special pre-order program for later in the year.

In addition, the two are similar in how they'll treat existing and future games; both aim to be as inclusionary as possible. But the PS4 Pro costs $100 less than the Xbox One X, so what's causing the discrepancy, and is it worth paying for?
