Xbox Announces Xbox One X

MICROSOFT unveiled the Xbox One X at E3 on Sunday, June 11.

For the past few days, many respected outlets like CNET and The Wall Street Journal have been pushing out stories how virtual reality or mixed reality devices aren't coming to Xbox One X anymore.

Microsoft gave a big boost to backward compatibility on Xbox One by announcing the addition of original Xbox games to the program during its E3 2017 briefing, but Microsoft may have even bigger plans still ahead.

The new Xbox One X gaming system will arrive with 6 teraflops of graphical power, which is more than its main rival, Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro with 4.2 teraflops.

The Xbox One X will be available to purchase for £449 in the United Kingdom, and has a $499 U.S. price tag.

The company said the Xbox One X also features a "liquid-cooled vapor chamber". The framework will have a six Teraflop GPU timed at 1.172 GHz, and also 12 GB GDDR5 memory, 326 GBs of data transfer capacity, and genuine 4K resolution.

Spencer announced that Xbox will expand the Xbox One backward compatibility library of almost 400 popular Xbox 360 games to include original Xbox classics, starting with fan favourite "Crimson Skies". The new console will also be immediately compatible with existing Xbox One games. "This show right here, it's about consoles, it's about great games". In fact, all of your Xbox One accessories will work with the Xbox One X. Moreover, there will be no titles exclusive to the Xbox One X. That's why we're able to say, over 30 games will have 4K updates for Xbox One X when we launch it. There's nothing technically that would keep any game a console game maker is building who wants to take advantage of the capability here from making Xbox One X the very best version of every one of those games.

Lately, it has been the PlayStation 4 that has dominated the market when it came to the latest generation of consoles. Sony recently announced its PlayStation VR headset sales topped one million units.

The promise of 4k experience on the gaming console is being kept with the help of the feature which the company calls "supersampling" which enables users to experience 4k without a 4k TV. The consoles, which will go on sale in the fall, aim to ride the coattails of the smaller Nintendo NES Classic Edition, which sold out around the holidays past year. Which is more that PS4 Pro which has only 4.2 teraflops.
