Xbox One X review: This is the ultimate Xbox | TechCrunch. I don't play video games much; however, I have an XBox One S that I purchased last year as a lark. I was surprised when it became the core of my home entertainment system. My TV cable connection runs through it and all my Internet entertainment is accessed through it. There are apps for Netflix, Amazon Video, and much more. For non gamers, the system is valuable as an entertainment hub. Now, the new One X delivers all that and 4K gaming as well. I don't need that, so I won't be spending $499 for it. But, if you haven't tried the system, you should check it out. I do play one game occasionally. It is a great golf simulation that is quite relaxing. 18 holes and no perspiration. I used to try to justify my occasional video gaming with a quote from Star Trek's Captain Kirk: "The more complex the mind, the greater the delight in the simplicity of play". Now, I am at an age where I don't feel the need to explain myself to anyone. Game on.
