The Xbox One X is Microsoft’s fastest selling console. The device sold out quickly shortly after Microsoft officially announced it.
Fans can’t wait to get their hands on the Xbox One X
Many were not expecting that the Xbox One X would manage to sell that well. The sales of the premium console are insane, and they’ll probably continue to remain like that for a while after its release as well.
Microsoft is also trying to consolidate all the digital and physical Xbox products on the Xbox Store. As a result, Insiders are now able to order peripherals for the Xbox from the Xbox Store, and they can also get digital games and subscriptions. This is the first time since Steam’s launch of the Steam controller that a digital store also becomes physical and the whole thing opens up great future possibilities.
Consequences of Xbox One X’s success
Unfortunately, the success known by the Xbox One X may have a downside for the rest of the Xbox One family. The sales for the Xbox One have dropped since the Xbox One X entered the scene. But, probably Microsoft had seen this coming, so it’s not a surprise.
An Intelligent Delivery system for game storage is in the works
It became apparent that 1TB is not enough to hold all your games and the 4K texture upgrades that are required by the Xbox One X. It looks like Microsoft is currently working on something called Intelligent Delivery which is a system that would be able to send parts of a game to the cloud after you are done with them. But this is something that may materialize only a few years from now, but it’s exciting and great to know that Microsoft is working on something like this.
Taking all these advantages into account, we think it’s fair to state that the Xbox One X could soon become the most popular gaming console in the world.
