Watch: Digital Foundry's Rich and John on Xbox One X and the future of consoles

On stage at EGX.

By Oli Welsh. 22/09/2017

Yesterday at EGX in Birmingham, I took to the stage with Rich Leadbetter and John Linneman from Digital Foundry to chat about Xbox One X and the future of console technology. We'd held a similar discussion at EGX Rezzed in London back in April, but back then we couldn't reveal that Rich was just back from Microsoft's HQ in Redmond for our exclusive specs reveal of the new console.

Since then the DF boys have had several more opportunities to get hands on with the X and see what it can do. Does it live up to expectations? How will Sony respond? Is the rate of console development slowing down, and what does this mean for gamers? Are we moving to a new iterative model for hardware or will generational leaps survive? And where do Switch and PC fit in?
