When Microsoft revealed the Xbox One X at this year’s E3 event, it was a shot across the bow of Sony. PS4 Pro fans might not see it that way, but make no mistake about it, the console war got a lot more competitive than it has been in the last few years.
There’s nothing wrong with competition, though, and that brings us to today’s question of which console is better: the Xbox One X or the PS4 Pro?
Unfortunately for the PS4 Pro, the fight doesn’t get off to a great start, as the Xbox One X is objectively a more powerful piece of hardware than the PS4 Pro. It has a more powerful CPU, GPU, and it has more RAM. The Xbox One X also has 4K/HDR Blu-Ray Support, which the PS4 Pro does not.
