Xbox Controller Series X - Is this Worth the Upgrade for the Average Gamer?
The new console generation for Playstation and Xbox like Xbox Controller Series X are a month away from being released but will they be worth purchasing for the average gamer if they already own the previous gen versions? First you need to understand the enhancements that this next gen of consoles are bringing which for most gamers may be some of the most immersive gaming experiences any console gamer has ever seen.
Xbox Controller Series X
The Xbox Controller Series X is a beast of a console with 12 Teraflops of processing power which doubles the power of the Xbox One X. The Series X also has the capability of delivering 120 frames per second for the smoothest gameplay available of any current console which they advertise as “True to Life 4K”. The sleek design of the Series X is also built for performance. Microsoft explains the reasoning for their design as, “The Xbox Parallel Cooling Architecture is built with three air flow channels that evenly distribute the temperatures generated by the advanced internal components, keeping the console cool and quiet”. This allows the console to run at its highest performance settings over long extended periods of gaming. The Xbox Controller Series X will not only out perform every current Xbox console when it comes to overall gameplay but it will look crystal clear on 4K televisions and gaming monitors due to AMD's Zen 2 and RDNA 2 architectures. Microsoft also explains that “the DirectX ray tracing delivers true-to-life lighting, shadows, and accurate reflections to create dynamic, living worlds”. All this power and a sleek design to create an immersive gaming experience…but is it worth the upgrade when it releases? Well for most casual gamers we would recommend to wait and see if your favorite games will be cross gen which you will be able to play on your Xbox One X so there really isn’t a need to upgrade right away. That being said, for those more experienced gamers that want to immersive themselves into an enhanced console gaming world than absolutely get the upgrade.
In conclusion...we think upgrading to the new consoles using an Xbox Controller just depends on what kind of gamer you are. It also depends on which games will be coming out at release and if you are interested in playing them right away especially since some of them will be cross gen. We suggest you do your research on which games you think you would be interested in the most. Do you spend hours upon hours spending as much free time gaming as you can and want to experience the most immersive gaming entertainment systems ever created thus far? Then absolutely invest into these amazing consoles.
