Microsoft’s new Xbox model is named Xbox One X and will ship on 7 November with a $499/£449 price tag

Microsoft has finally revealed its plans for Project Scorpio, the new generation of Xbox one consoles that have been rumored for far too long. And like the GTX 1080, the Xbox One X features swanky vapor chamber cooling technology.

Microsoft rolled out several games with the hopes of selling its fanbase on the need for Xbox One X, including Ubisoft adventure game Assassin's Creed Origins and the Electronic Arts game Anthem, developed by Mass Effect studio BioWare. A few others are new games altogether.

If you want the Xbox One X in 2017, you need to pre-order.

A lot will depend a lot on the graphics performance of new games heading to Xbox One. Obviously when we think about UWP and the ability for games to run across console and PC, we're getting closer.

As it now stands, there are few reasons to buy the Xbox One X especially considering the fact that it is more expensive - and offers fewer games - than the PlayStation Pro. On several occasions during a press briefing ahead of the Electronic Entertainment Expo, Microsoft pointed out how their new home device is the world's most powerful console.

Game play on 4K screens, whether on televisions or personal computer monitors, is expected to be among themes at E3 this week.

One thing that wasn't talked about during the conference is how folks will be able to play local multiplayer for original Xbox games through system link. While Sony does have the price advantage with the PS4 Pro, the Xbox One X is substantially more capable graphically.

What is the release date for the Xbox One X?

They also announced a sequel to an exclusive with "Ori and the Will of Wisps" and showed more off exclusive survival RPG "Ashen". The Japanese video game company has been riding high on its numerous, high-quality exclusives for years and it is set to reveal more.

There are many games that come with Xbox compatibility in future. You don't need to wait or buy a special version for the Xbox One X. There is a very good chance that the Xbox One X Black Friday deals will not show up. At the most, you may see some bundles that pack in a bunch of Xbox One games, but most won't be new AAA titles. It's biggest arch rival, Sony's PlayStation 4 has been outselling the company's Xbox One for months now.
