Update 16/01/2018: We're chugging along through January now and if the winter winds are getting to you a little bit, maybe you ought to treat yourself to a shiny new console. Here are the very best deals we've found this week.
Whilst it initially seemed to be on the losing side of this console generation at launch, Microsoft's Xbox One console has seen a significant resurgence over the last couple of years, with more and more systems being sold and some high-profile exclusives headed to the console before any other platform. All of this has been achieved through some very good decisions behind the scenes as well as a few revisions of the console's overall build.
The launch Xbox One was one of the more bulky systems available but thankfully, this was beautifully fixed with the introduction of the Xbox One S in 2016, which was positioned as a slimline version of the console equipped with a 4K Blu-ray drive to boot. This year, Microsoft introduced its competitor to the PS4 Pro, the Xbox One X, which the company swiftly billed - accurately to this day - as the world's most powerful gaming console.
The Xbox One X boasts massive horsepower as well as a jaw-dropping 12GB of RAM, built specifically to play all Xbox One games as well as they can possibly be played. Newer games (and all games going forward) also benefit from full native 4K support, making titles like Assassin's Creed Origins and Gears of War 4 look absolutely stunning. If you're in the market for a new console and happen to own a big shiny 4K television, the Xbox One X, which pricey, might be the way to go.
If you're yet undecided on which of the big modern consoles will be your kind of thing, you're welcome to check out our guides to the best PS4 deals, the best Nintendo Switch deals or even take a look at our best 4K TV deals, while you're in a shopping mood.
