Yes, this was previously codenamed Project Scorpio, so you already know quite a bit of background to this console, which was originally teased at E3 a year ago. What's there instead is an adapter that lets owners use the peripheral with one of the console's USB ports and an extra external power supply.
Revealed (kind of, but not really) at last year's E3, Project Scorpio was the codename for Microsft's next game console that they're describing as an upgrade to the current Xbox One.
The Xbox One X releases November 7, 2017 and will cost $499.
The Xbox One X, powered by its much-touted 6 teraflops of processing power, is capable of playing games in full 4K ultra high-definition.
BioWare Announces Their Newest Game Anthem: Although Anthem's teaser trailer dropped during yesterday's EA event, this was the first time we saw any gameplay.
Microsoft held its E3 2017 press conference earlier today and a ton of new things were revealed.
One X versions, therefore, will be far better graphically than their Xbox One S counterparts - with greater resolution, draw distances and the like. Games confirmed as being given support for the Xbox One X's improved hardware include Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Resident Evil 7, Final Fantasy 15, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands, and - surprisingly - Minecraft. Xbox One X also happens to be the most compact Xbox console ever made.
This is a game well-suited for the Xbox family, with a multiplayer only style of design that requires patience, and communication if you decide to queue up with friends.
From the footage we've seen, games running on the Xbox One X look absolutely spectacular. The Xbox One X will be available November 7 worldwide. It will have liquid cooled vapor chamber cooling, and the smallest form factor of any previous Xbox. The Xbox One S also has eight cores, which run at 1.75GHz.
Microsoft showed off several notable upcoming games for Xbox One, though the extensive compatibility between Xbox One, Xbox One X, and Windows 10 means none are exclusive to the newest system. There's HDMI but no Kinect port.
