Just because the Xbox One X is now available around the world, it doesn’t make the Xbox One S chopped liver.
You’ll still be able to play all Xbox One X games on the S system (which is little more than a year old) and some titles will even get a bump in quality thanks to patches from developers in games new and old.
Also, there’s the advantage of a 4K Blu-ray player built right into the console for those who still get their kicks from physical media.

So news Microsoft is lowering the Xbox One X to its best-ever price on Black Friday will be music to the ears of gamers. Especially those who’re more concerned with enjoying great games than teraflops and frames-per-second.
From November 23 the Xbox One X with one wireless controller will be available from just $189.99, which is a $60 saving on the retail price.
Better still you’ll get a free game with the purchase, a one-month trial of Xbox Game Pass and a 14-day trial of Xbox Live Gold.
Buyers will also be entitled to $10 off an Xbox Live Gold membership (3 or 12 months) and $10 off a second Xbox One wireless controller, should they choose to double down.
Judging by the graphic shown on the Microsoft store, those taking up the deal will be able to choose from Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection, Watch Dogs 2 and Just Dance among others.
We’d hope Microsoft kicks in some higher-end options by this time next week…
