DISCLAIMER: THIS ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN BY A PC GAMER THAT USED TO BE A CONSOLE GAMER!
According to WCCFTECH, their Editor had a chance to speak to Jesse Rapczak, the Co-Founder and Co-Creative Director at Studio Wildcard (developers of Ark Survival Evolved) and he claims that the new Xbox One X has the power equivalent of a high end PC (NVIDIA GTX 1070 + 16GB RAM) which is huge for consoles! A few Reddit users have been trying to come up with a PC spec list that comes close the Xbox One X however it seems they can’t get it to the same price point, usually holding in the $700-$800 range.
Looking at it from a price point of view, this new unit is a steal and a much needed leap forward when it comes to console gaming. Since the dawn of time, PC Gaming has dominated the playing field in terms of power however, if consoles keep evolving like this, it may not be that way for much longer!
Ark Devs have also confirmed that the game is set for full console release on the 8th August 2017, and will come with enhancements for the Xbox One X, no fully confirmed details on exactly how it’s going to be yet.
