Microsoft unveils new Xbox One X console

Head of Xbox Software Engineering Kareem Choudhry examined the new framework toward the begin of the Xbox question and answer session.

Microsoft has announced all the details about its new Xbox One X. All Xbox games will have improved visual fidelity, and they will load faster on the console.

With 6 Teraflops, 326GB/s of Memory Bandwidth and advanced, custom silicon, the Scorpio Engine is the world's most powerful console gaming processor. Microsoft launched a plethora of games along with the new Xbox one X out of which 22 games are exclusive to the Xbox line of consoles.

Though the Xbox One X has same age old box type design but has some decent specs under the hood and also has a hefty price tag of $499.

The console, originally known as Project Scorpio, is set to rival Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro - which launched previous year - as the flagship games console on the market.

34 treated after carbon monoxide forces evacuation of NYC building
New York City's fire department says about three dozen people received medical treatment after a basement fire in Lower Manhattan. Of those, 17 had injuries described as minor while two had serious injuries and two more had critical injuries, the FDNY said.

Every Xbox One X unit will come with a 1TB hard drive, a matching Xbox Wireless Controller, HDMI cable, power supply, a 1-month free Xbox Game Pass subscription, and a 14-day free Xbox Live Gold membership. That's a whole $100 more than Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro. How much does it cost?

Microsoft's new Xbox One X will work with all existing Xbox One accessories, as well as Xbox One games and all existing Xbox 360 backwards compatible titles.

While the Xbox One X certainly appears to be an exceptional console, very possibly even the best ever, it remains to be seen how well it sells, and the games coming to the console will be a big factor here.

You can also visit GAME and Amazon before the Xbox One X is stocked. At this event Japanese games maker will be showing off multiplayer games such as Splatoon 2, Arms and Pokken Tournament DX.

That being said, I think it will do better than PS4 Pro mainly because it's more powerful and because it has more features like true 4K gaming and 4K Blu Ray disc support.
