Ultra-Powerful Xbox One X Unveiled

Whether or not this means the game is truly open-world is yet to be seen, but we'll hear more in the run up to its 2018 release.

Inside the core chip housing the Scorpio Engine is cooled using a liquid-cooled Vapor Chamber and the new power management system that uniquely optimizes power for each individual console at the system and component level.

Microsoft's latest console is part of an effort to gain ground against Sony's PlayStation 4. The Xbox One X will ship with 1 TB of storage, and an exterior that looks a lot like the Xbox One S, albeit with an even smaller footprint. I came out of the Xbox One X press demonstration saying, "Okay", not "Wow".

According to Mike Ybarra, corporate vice president of the Xbox and Windows gaming platform at Microsoft, the new console is being built with the "premium customer, the gamer that expects the absolute best versions of the games". Are on-paper specs enough to attract buyers? "A consumer can buy Xbox One S and PS4 for the same price", he said. The Sony's PS4 Pro manages 4K HDR games at 30 frames per second.

One of the reasons why the console market continues to thrive is that it offers an affordable entry point into the world of high quality games. Well, it might have been, but virtually every Xbox One exclusive from here on out will be available on both Xbox and PC. Those who already own those console-specific versions will be able to download the new game for free.

Some of the console launch exclusives on the way include Crackdown 3, Forza Motorsport 7, and Sea of Thieves. You'll also need a 4K-ready monitor to enjoy true 4K UHD playback on One X. Microsoft knows that not everybody owns a 4K monitor.

What has been codenamed Scorpio for the past few years was finally unveiled in full at Microsoft's E3 press conference, setting the tone, and the vision, for the rest of the proceedings.

The racing auto fans' racing vehicle game, we imagine the photo-realism of this on the Xbox One X, matched to the right TV, will have viewers questioning if you're watching the real thing or not. The Xbox One X is certainly powerful, but it has one major problem - the lack of exclusive games. And since original Xbox emulation has been slow-going, this move from Microsoft will make it much easier for retro game fans to play some real classics. Probably not. Microsoft's exclusive gaming library is minuscule compared to the PlayStation 4 library. If you want a console that is $100 cheaper and available right now for purchase you can spend your cash on PlayStation 4 Pro. Peripherals such as game controllers are also cross-compatible.
