First Look At Xbox One Duke Controller, Will Feature Detachable Cable

Sony 's PS4 Pro console with 4K capabilities that released in November of a year ago, with memory 8 gigabytes and processor speed of 4.12 lower than Xbox One X that boasts 12 gigabytes of RAM and 6 teraflops of graphics processing power, and capable of supporting virtual reality gaming which it was not mentioned of using VR headsets.

All the accessories will be compatible with the Xbox One S as well as the Xbox One X. Apart from that games like Minecraft and Ghost Recon Wildlands will receive 4K support.

Microsoft has unveiled its forthcoming Xbox One X console and announced a November 7 release date for the device, which was formerly code-named "Project Scorpio".

The new console is being marketed as the most post power ever, capable of supporting true 4K gaming. The Xbox One X has been confirmed to release this November, and Xbox's marketing boss Albert Penello has revealed on IGN Live (via Twitter) that pre-orders will be available "later this year". Now, we're not saying that Microsoft had no first-party exclusives on show, but there was nothing special or particularly new that really showcased the power and potential of the One X. Xbox One Elite, for example, didn't convince the heads of the company, as Microsoft had already used that name with one of the previous packages of Xbox One.

This means the X can run games at native 4K resolution along with HDR and Dolby Atmos surround sound.

Inside is a custom eight-core CPU running at 2.3GHz, which is 31 per cent faster than the standard Xbox One. Crackdown 3, Forza Motorsport 7, Sea of Thieves - all on PC. Well, now we all know that this is named the Xbox One X and it is priced at $499.

I haven't had a chance to get my hands on it yet, but I imagine that the Xbox One X is a ridiculously impressive piece of hardware. Given its capabilities, the $499 price tag looks reasonable, although some critics warned that this price could affect sales levels, particularly as the PS4 Pro costs $100 less. 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.

Microsoft and Sony both introduced their previous generation consoles in late 2013. There is no word on different versions of the console in terms of regions or storage models, and also now no word on pre-order availability either.
