Xbox One X is Microsoft's powerful new game console

After months of speculation, Microsoft has finally unveiled its latest games console, a more powerful version of the Xbox One called the Xbox One X.

Known as Project Scorpio since the console's debut a year before at E3 2016, the Xbox One X represents Microsoft's focus on providing the most powerful home console experience to date. 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.

And Xbox One X supports Ultra HD Blu-ray disc playback and it will stream 4K video with HDR.

On other news, Microsoft's new Xbox One X will be made available on November 7, 2017, and these are the games that are confirmed to be exclusively playable on the Xbox One X.

BioWare's new universe, Anthem, was revealed to be a shared-open-world, action role-playing game along the lines of Destiny, and Ubisoft premiered Assassin's Creed Origins, a new game in the franchise set in Egypt during the time of the pharaohs and pyramids.

Imagine yourself, if you will, an uninformed parent /consumer standing in front of a shelf stacked with PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X consoles.

One of the announcements that delighted fans at the E3 was the one about extending the backward compatibility programme for Xbox in order to include the original console too. However, it looks like it won't be able to run all games in true native 4K resolutions as the company claimed. Sony has sold more than 60 million units of its PlayStation 4, thanks to a robust games library including Uncharted 4, Horizon: Zero Dawn and Bloodborne.

While that graphical processing power will see the console compare very positively with gaming PCs in the same price range, it may struggle to help Microsoft win market share from Sony. Also you will find 12GB GDDR5 of graphic memory that adds speed and power to game performance.

Some current Xbox One games will gain a boost from the Xbox One X's horsepower.

In case you have missed the unveiling of Xbox One X by Microsoft, here is a recap. "A consumer can buy Xbox One S and PS4 for the same price", he said.
