Xbox One X vs PlayStation 4 Pro: The console wars level up with powerful new hardware

Hardware specs jump again, but it's really about the games.

With the E3 announcement of the Xbox One X, the console wars are revving up again. Microsoft's newest console will launch on November 7, almost exactly a year after Sony began selling its 4K-capable PlayStation 4 Pro.

Microsoft's Xbox One X is $100 more expensive than its rival and doesn't support virtual reality at launch, but it's a far meatier, more powerful console.

For full details on the console, specs, launch date, price and upcoming games check out PCWorld's full coverage of the Xbox One X. Of course, PCs have been able to pump out 4K visuals and run games at 60 frames per second at 1080p resolution for a while now.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
