Microsoft unveils new gaming system as Xbox One X

Spencer then went on to say that the Xbox One X feature 40 percent more GPU and a larger, faster RAM. Sporting six teraflops of processing power-two more than Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro-the Xbox One X (X1X?) pushes 4K gaming to the living room for a hefty £450/$500.

"The money-making part is in selling games", he said, showing that Microsoft will rely on titles to drive up its profit from the Xbox One X.

When asked about how this difference will have an impact on multiplatform games and whether they will perform significantly better on Xbox One X, Spencer added: "The capability is in this box to make the difference extremely significant".

During said event, we were told the price of the console at launch, with it set to cost £449 / $499 / 499 euros when it launches on November 7.

The announcement which was made by Xbox chief Phil Spencer at a press briefing ahead of the E3 Gaming Expo in Las Vegas. Unlike the Xbox One S, the Xbox One X will come in black - although it looks very like the white console in shape and design, as you can see above. How does "The World's Most Powerful Console", according to Microsoft, compare to the PlayStation 4 Pro? The console also supports 4K games, which is now at the top edge of video game technology.

Microsoft has finally revealed its plans for Project Scorpio, the new generation of Xbox one consoles that have been rumored for far too long. The new console is slimmer than the Xbox One S, another Xbox One variant which the company released earlier this year. It upscales every game to 4K UHD unlike the previous version Xbox One S.

However, hardware just isn't where console manufacturers make money anymore: Microsoft will instead be focusing on games and services like Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass to get the cash rolling in.

Xbox One X has 1 TB of storage and games which were compatible on Xbox one will still work so we need not purchase them again.

Microsoft used Xbox One X Enhanced program to update 30 third party titles to match the awe of its newest family member.
