Introducing the Xbox One X – Available November 7th WORLDWIDE

by Matt BleasbyJune 11, 2017

 

Almost a year of speculation! Microsoft has announced its “Project Scorpio” games console today & it’s officially named Xbox One X. Microsoft’s Xbox One X naming comes just days after the company trademarked a mysterious S logo, and started dropping Scorpio hints in its E3 teaser videos. Microsoft is planning to launch the Xbox One X on November 7th worldwide.

 

All existing Xbox One accessories will work on the new Xbox One X, alongside all existing Xbox 360 backwards compatible titles & Xbox One games. Microsoft is even planning to use something it calls “super sampling” in the One X to make new games look better even on older 1080p TVs.

The new console will ship with 6 teraflops of graphical power, more than its main competitor, the PS4 Pro, with 4.2 teraflops. Microsoft is using a custom GPU engine on Scorpio that runs at 1172MHz, a big increase over the Xbox One’s 853MHz and even Sony’s 911MHz found on the PS4 Pro. Microsoft is also shipping the Xbox One X with an Ultra HD Blu-ray drive for 4K movies and entertainment. If you want to see the full official specs CLICK HERE

Microsoft has previously promised that 900p and 1080p Xbox One games should be able to run at native 4K on the Xbox One X, and that existing Xbox One and 360 games will see a noticeable performance boost. The rear of Microsoft’s new console is based on the Xbox One S, with a HDMI-in port and no dedicated Kinect port. Scorpio also features liquid-cooled vapor-chamber cooling inside, a technology that’s used on high-end PC gaming cards like the GTX 1080.

Microsoft says the new Xbox One X is the “smallest Xbox ever,” and the design looks very similar to the existing Xbox One S model. One of the first titles for the new console is Forza Motorsport 7, running at native 4K and 60fps. You can watch exclusive gameplay below, andForza Motorsport 7 will debut on October 3rd.

Microsoft has 22 “console launch exclusives” arriving on the Xbox One X, including Crackdown 3Forza Motorsport 7, and Sea of Thieves. Microsoft’s Xbox chief, Phil Spencer, has been introducing a number of new titles and leaving most of the company’s E3 press conference up to the games themselves.

Microsoft is even bringing original Xbox games to the Xbox One family, starting with Crimson Skies.

The new Xbox One X will now debut worldwide on November 7th, priced at $499, £449, 499 euros, 599 Canadian dollars, and 649 Australian dollars.
