"During this weekend's E3 events, Microsoft revealed the name and price of its secretive 'Project Scorpio" game console. Microsoft says the new Xbox One X is the "smallest Xbox ever", and the black design shares similarities with the existing Xbox One S mode. The Project Scorpio code name is gone and the new console will be called the Xbox One X. Price is $499 and the new Xbox will be available worldwide starting November 7. Twenty-two of these games are Xbox One X exclusives like "Assassin's Creed: Origins", "Forza Motorsport 7", "Life is Strange" and EA's brand-new game "Anthem". Microsoft's Xbox chief, Phil Spencer, introduced a number of new titles and left most of the company's E3 press conference up to the games themselves.
Another interesting announcement was the inclusion of more backward compatility for the console with original Xbox game support coming later in 2017, starting with Crimson Skies.
Microsoft was quick to note that the 4K support stands in stark contrast to the PlayStation 4 Pro, which technically offers a 4K-like resolution, but not actual 4K.
Formerly known by the code-name Project Scorpio the console will be completely backwards compatible with other Xbox games and peripherals, potentially endearing it to current Xbox One gamers.
Meanwhile, rival Sony has released a beefier PlayStation 4 and unlike Microsoft Sony has said all models of the PlayStation 4 combined have sold more than 60 million units world-wide to date. In fact, all of your Xbox One accessories will work with the Xbox One X.
Through the official site of Xbox we find out that "With 40% more power than any other console, experience immersive true 4K gaming". There are much more games to be played on the PS4 than the Xbox, the games also look better on the system in general and the video games seem to hold more diversity and story.
Apparently, the Xbox one X is a monster on the inside. It's going to be there on launch day for Xbox One X, which will be a great showcase for the box. If you're in the market for an Xbox One S console, now is the time to grab yours before the price reverts back.
