The Cyberpunk Xbox One X console looks sexy and it even glows in the dark

Come September, it’s going to be increasingly difficult to recommend anyone buying a current-gen system this late in the console game. We’ve had a goo run with the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the new kit on the way looks fantastic and the future of gaming looks set to be nippier than a Chihuahua strung out on cocaine.

If you can’t wait for the PS5 and Xbox Series X era to begin, then there are options for machines that can deliver some 4K hotness directly to your eyeballs right now! The PlayStation 4 Pro is a neat layer cake of design, but in terms of power the Xbox One X has it beat in that pissing contest. That, and custom versions of the Xbox One X tend to not look like godawful designs slapped on at the eleventh hour. Never forget the Call of Duty World War 2 PS4 Pro. NEVER FORGET.

Anyway, here’s one variant of the Xbox One X that looks smashing. After teasing some hacking, Microsoft showed off a custom bit of kit that looks both wonderfully futuristic and retro. Kind of like far-future technology in 1980s sci-fi films. The Cyberpunk 2077 Xbox One X Limited Edition console has laser etched designs, an LED light, custom panels, a custom controller and it glows in the dark. Neat!

It’s a fancy-looking piece of hardware, technological peacocking taken to the extreme and chances are it’ll probably be snapped up within a day by thirsty Cyberpunk 2077 fans dying for a sip of that hype juice, once it goes on sale. As for Cyberpunk 2077? Fret not! It’s still on track for a September 2020 release date, incredibly dangerous viruses be damned. Wake the hell up Samurai, we’ve got some social distancing to observe!

  1. Who would consider purchasing a One X so close to the release of the Series X?

      Here’s the thing: Usually with a new console generation, you’ll see a spike in last-gen hardware as more people find it affordable to adopt older tech and benefit from an established library.

      I also think, together with the more connected Xbox ecosystem, that grabbing a Xbox One X is still a good buy. May not have SSD tech, but the hardware is nothing to sneeze at.

        If they made an SSD edition of the One X I may take that instead of the Series X. The only issue I have with the One X is the horrifically slow 5400 RPM harddrive.

          The Series S will be ideal for you then!

      Are you implying that the game is complete and the studio executives are happily delaying their income of millions or Euros?

        Enough rumours going back to January suggesting only the Series X will be supported on launch day, so is it inconceivable? As for the millions of Euros? The game is already pretty much selling itself so a delay wouldst really hurt them and if they did get something upfront from Microsoft it would certainly soften the blow.

      I SERIOUSLY doubt CDPR would do that. Almost any other company, sure. That said, more money to them I’d say hell yeah. They legit deserve it and it would be silly to argue against extra content. Not sure what you’re on about with the launch day support though.

        So far CDPR refuses to comment on PS5 support, hence the reason so many believe a deal has been struck with Microsoft. I’m happy to be proven wrong

          Hang on a sec, I can pre-order Cyber Punk on my PS4. I really doubt that will be the case. The leaked story was it was delayed because they couldn’t get it to run properly on the original Xbox.

            Since then several publications have asked about PS5 support since the Series X owners will get the game if they purchased it on Xbox One, but CDPR is not giving any answer. It may be that Sony is the issue not wanting to allow the same, but still its odd that they are avoiding even confirming a PS5 edition at all.

            Fair enough. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

          Yikes ! If that’s true, it will be really bad press for them.
