However, priced at $499, it's a bit of a tough pill to swallow, especially in light of cheaper alternatives. All that is about to change as Rakuten is currently offering the Xbox One X for $399.99 via coupon code "ALT85". (The coupon can only be used once per account). After coupon, that's one of the best deals we've seen for the Xbox One X. (It normally drops to $419 on sale).
When paired with a 4K TV, the Xbox One X delivers glorious 3840 x 2160 gaming. If you're not sure which titles are optimized for the system, Microsoft has even created a helpful webpage of games that support 4K Ultra HD, HDR, and Xbox One Enhanced featured. (By comparison, the PS4 Pro mostly upscales content to 4K and doesn't always hit that 3840 x 2160 resolution).
However, even if you don't own a 4K TV, the Xbox One X can still upscale games to a higher resolution for a better gaming experience.
When you're not playing games, you can use your console to view UHD Blu-rays, another feature unique to Microsoft's console.
Rakuten's deal won't last forever, however, and the coupon is set to expire May 16 at 11:59pm.
