Project Scorpio Becomes Xbox One X. Here's Everything We Know

Microsoft kicked off its E3 media briefing with the final unveiling of its highly touted Project Scorpio console. Christened Xbox One X, the "world's most powerful console" hits store shelves November 7 and runs for $499. 

 

In addition to reviewing the technical specifications Microsoft has spent months hyping (6 teraflops of GPU, 326GB/s memory, 12 GB of GDDR5 memory), the console's form factor was shown for the first time. Resembling an Xbox One S in design, the unit is also the smallest Xbox Microsoft has ever assembled.

Xbox One X supports native 4K gaming, demonstrated with stunning demos of games such as Forza 7. Microsoft detailed the list of titles that will receive free 4K updates later this year: Gears of War 4, Halo Wars 2, Minecraft, Killer Instinct, and Forza Horizon 3.

 

Xbox One X "enhancements" will allow better performance for standard Xbox One titles, such as improved load times and improved visuals for 1080p displays. Microsoft promised enhancements for existing and future titles, but only specified the following: Final Fantasy XV, Rocket League, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, and Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

 

All previous Xbox accessories, controllers, and games will work with the Xbox One X, Microsoft confirmed. From early photos released from E3, it looks as if there's no plugin for a Kinect, but reports suggest that functionality will be added in later via a dongle.

 

What do you think of the Xbox One X? Are the features and price point enough to justify and upgrade from your existing Xbox One?
