As one of the most anticipated announcement of this year’s E3 event, Microsoft finally shed some light what is the most powerful console in gaming history, entitled the Xbox One X.

Ditching the previous name of Project Scorpio, the Xbox One X will be available for purchase on November 7th, for a rather steep $499, which is around $100 more than the PlayStation 4 Pro.

We’ve heard quite a lot of information about the console since its initial reveal at E3 last year, and we now know it boasts more graphical power than the PlayStation 4 Pro, and proving a worthy successor to the Xbox One. The new machine will support true 4K gameplay, whilst using super sampling technology to improve graphics running on 1080p TVs to compensate those without 4K televisions. It will also support existing Xbox One accessories, whilst supporting backwards compatibility for Xbox 360 games.

We were also treated to plentiful gameplay footage that showcased the likes of Forza Motorsport 7, Crackdown 3, Assassins Creed Origins and more to demonstrate the true power of the Xbox One X.

All in all, it was quite an interesting offering from Microsoft, who also revealed that original Xbox games from the debut console would be coming to the backwards compatibility program later on this year.

What were your thoughts on the reveal of the Xbox One X? Are you likely to be picking one up at launch, or will you be waiting until the price goes down? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
