10 things you need to know about the Microsoft Xbox One X

"Our team of engineers are working hard to bring some of your favorite original Xbox games to today's Xbox One library", Spencer told the Los Angeles Galen Center crowd.

Microsoft has finally revealed what it says is the "world's most powerful console", the Xbox One X. This means the games will still look a lot better even they are using an old TV with a 1080p display.

If you head over to the local Xbox website you'll see a rather vague "coming soon" note but according to The Verge the console will launch worldwide on 7th November.

Although there will be no Xbox One X exclusive games, any game played on the new console will have shorter load times and more crisp visuals.

In another news, Microsoft is expected to finally unveil the Xbox Scorpio console.

In terms of specifications, the Xbox One X features a custom 8-core AMD CPU clocked at 2.3GHz, a 6 teraflop GPU clocked at 1.17GHz that paired with 12GB of GDDR5 video RAM, making it a "world's most powerful console". And one of the biggest-name titles for the new Xbox One X is Forza Motorsport 7, which runs at native 4K and 60fps.

Penguins beat Nashville to take home Stanley Cup
The Penguins captain is the sixth player in National Hockey League history with two career Conn Smythe trophies . Team captain Mike Fisher is an unrestricted free agent, but he seems likely to stay in Nashville if he wants to.

That said, Spencer did confirm that backwards compatibility will indeed extend to both first and third-party games.

"Xbox empowers game developers, large and small, to create different types of games for every type of player", he said.

Microsoft has previously stumbled by pricing an older Xbox too high. The console is priced at $499 (£449, €499, CAD 599, and AUD 649), and will be available for purchase starting November 7. Sony faced similar issues in 2006 when it released the PlayStation 3, which cost $500 to $600. "I expect that will continue, absent some incredible paradigm shift".

"Microsoft is committed to delivering great mixed reality gaming experiences".

When first announced previous year under the codename Project Scorpio, it was suggested the increased specifications of the One X were to enable the device to support virtual reality headsets.
