Microsoft Xbox One X to have a difficult time in 2018, here’s why

Published on December 20, 2017

Microsoft recently took the wraps off its highly-anticipated gaming console, the Xbox One X. The Redmond giant placed the new piece of hardware at the same position as PS4 Pro. However, they claimed that it is one of the most influential gaming consoles to date. The Xbox One X has done pretty well in its first outing itself. However, Forbes notes that Xbox One X might face some severe struggles next year.

Microsoft’s most powerful gaming console is going to face two primary challenges next year. The first possible problem is that the luster is eventually going to wear off. The excitement that can be seen right now may or may not last until 2018. Therefore, Microsoft will have to try and make most sales within the initial excitement period.

The Redmond giant will have to put individual effort into pushing the momentum forward by convincing a larger group of people to purchase its highly-expensive Xbox One X gaming console. The second problem, as noted by Forbes, is Sony. The Japanese company is planning on launching many new and exciting gaming series in 2018, including Spider-Man, The Last of Us (Part 2), God of War, Death Stranding and Days Gone to name a few.

These are some exclusive editions only limited to Sony’s proprietary gaming consoles. This is the sole advantage that Sony has over Microsoft for many years now. Therefore, it is going to be extremely difficult for Microsoft to compete with Sony when it comes to the latter’s 2018 line-up.

Microsoft too is gearing up to introduce some of its favorite exclusive titles. The list includes gaming series like Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3, PlayersUnknown’s Battleground and more. However, will that be enough for Microsoft to deliver a fierce competition to what Sony has to offer? The answer lies in the future.
