Microsoft looks to take the lead in the 4kKgaming world with what they are calling the smallest and 'most powerful console ever.' The claim doesn't look to be that farfetched as the system is significantly more powerful than Sony's Playstation 4 Pro and can run some games at an incredible 4k/60 frames per second.
According to the United States technology firm the Xbox One X is officially the world's most powerful console with 40% more grunt than anything now on the market. The Xbox One X will be available on November 7 worldwide, with a $499 price tag, Tech Crunch reported.
Microsoft's announcement Sunday night at the E3 gaming conference in Los Angeles helped kick off the biggest week in gaming, but it wasn't the only unveiling to generate buzz over the weekend.
A year ago at E3 Microsoft hinted that project Scorpio would be a platform for virtual reality gaming, but the company made no mention of VR during the Xbox One X announcement, and no VR games are being launched with the hardware.More news: Triumphant Corbyn declares Labour 'a Government in waiting'
Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer remarked: "Xbox empowers game developers large and small to create different types of games for every type of player". Most titles announced so far are "launch" exclusives, which means they will launch on the Xbox One before expanding to the PS4.
The Xbox One X is here.
The Xbox One X's Canadian price point might be a nice surprise to gamers in the country, but at $599, the console will still be $100 more expensive than its closest rival, Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro, which launched a year ago.
