It's no secret that the Xbox One X was looking to gain traction with consumers - analysts in the United Kingdom have increased sales forecasts, after strong interest in pre-orders for the device globally. You'll also see adaptive 4K resolution on the PlayStation 4 Pro and 4K on the Xbox One X.

Of course, stock shortages of both PS4 Pro and Switch will have impacted the performance of those machines.

To begin with, Call of Duty: WWII looks great on both Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro, offering a perfectly fluid gaming experience that keeps the 60fps fixed in every situation.

Beyond that, it was revealed that the Second World War inspired Call of Duty game, which launched last week, was the best-selling title on Xbox One, beating out games such Assassin's Creed Origins, and Federation Internationale de Football Association 18.

With the release of the Xbox One X, we are getting 4K patches for multiple games and Destiny 2 is one of the games that will feature the One X enhancements.

Reliance Jio offers upto 100GB free data on Oppo smartphones
The Mukesh Ambani-led firm has also tied up several e-wallets to bring instant cashbacks of up to Rs 300 during recharge. For Oppo F1s, A33F, A37F, A37Fw, A57 and A71 model phone users, Jio is offering 10GB of free 4G data for six recharges.

Retailers note that the most popular version of the console was the special edition Project Scorpio variant.

More than 70 games supported Xbox One X at launch, with that number set to increase each week.

However in the graphics department, this is where the Xbox One X has the lead with more TFLOPS and also more memory with 12GB of GDDR5 RAM versus the PS4 Pro's 8GB of GDDR5 RAM.

Due to its large £450 price tag it's unlikely Xbox One X will continue to sell well like Nintendo Switch did, but the week one figures are still a strong start for Microsoft.

In many ways, Xbox One X is the culmination of years of trying to fix the Xbox brand.
