With the launch of Game Pass, Microsoft's subscription game initiative that gives you access to brand new exclusive titles the day they release as well as a back catalog of 240 games, the Xbox One X has recently become a much more attractive option. This includes both Xbox 360 as well as original Xbox games, growing numbers of which are playable on the Xbox One through backwards compatibility.
And then there's the horsepower. The Xbox One X packs 6 teraflops of computing power (for comparison, the PS4 Pro rate at 4.2 teraflops), so it's got more than enough under-the-hood performance to manhandle even the most technically challenging of games at 4K, 60 FPS, with HDR enabled. It runs Red Dead at native 4K (unlike the Pro, which upscales it from 1080) and after more than 100 hours I can report it's ridiculously, staggeringly beautiful, and I've seen nearly zero dropped frames.
