Xbox One X: Australian Hands On

Presumably, as original Xbox games become available for Xbox One, you'll be able to download them from within the Xbox One console's store.

Speaking at Xbox's E3 briefing, live streamed around the world, head of Xbox Phil Spencer said, "The Xbox One X is the most powerful console ever made... it sets a new quality standard for gamers and game creators".

If the Kinect wasn't already dead, we can safely assume it is now.

Interestingly, this news came out just after the release of a (semi-debunked) report that the existing backward compatibility program on Xbox One isn't very popular. There was no mention of Kinect for the second year in a row, and the Xbox One X doesn't have a port for the motion-controlled, voice-recognizing camera. If you want to watch the entire show you can do so by watching the video down below.

Given the buzz received by the console since the official announcement past year, it certainly wouldn't be a bad idea keep the name, even considering the fact that Xbox executives have played with the scorpion imagery every since. "Super Lucky's Tale" was one of the many games shown, which was a VR launch title for the Oculus Rift, but again, no mention of a VR component. Nvidia's latest card, the 1080 TI, cranks out almost double the teraflops as the Xbox One X (and costs about $600). The Xbox One X, formerly known as Project Scorpio, is coming out on November 7. If the answer was "yes" to both of those questions you should definitely be interested in "Anthem", Bioware's answer to "Destiny". Think of it this way. It's biggest arch rival, Sony's PlayStation 4 has been outselling the company's Xbox One for months now.
