Amon current-gen gaming systems, it’s clear that Sony is still in the lead with. On the other hand, Nintendo is about to close the gap soon. Things are not exactly looking well for Microsoft whose flagging console sales are putting it way behind the race. Industry experts pointed out several factors that caused gamers to abandon the Redmond, Washington-based company’s platform in favor of the competition. Just recently, the firm collaborated with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to auction off limited edition Make-A-Wish Foundation Microsoft Xbox One X units that would look amazing in any gamer’s collection.
The original Xbox One did not really make a solid impact when it launched due to some tech constraints. Moreover, Sony apparently worked out a deal with most publishers for console-exclusive features. This gave it a leg up over Microsoft. Additionally, the release of the Nintendo Switch saw its user base dwindle. This led the company to pre-emptively release an upgrade called the Xbox One X. The new system flaunted next-generation graphics and native 4K-resolution gaming. Yet, the lack of AAA exclusives was once again its downfall.
For those who want to own a one-of-a-kind version of the Xbox One X, you can place your bid until October 3, 2018.
