Microsoft unveils 'worlds most powerful' 4K games console

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.

Microsoft has unveiled its new console, the Xbox One X, with ultra high-resolution 4K capabilities and a processor with liquid-cooling technology, claiming that it is the most powerful game console to date.

"We have the 4K blu-ray drive inside the S console".

Games that provide 4K graphics will be noted by the "Xbox One Enhanced" branding, he said.

To show off the capabilities of the upgraded console, developer Turn 10 studios showed off its forthcoming driving sim Forza Motorsport 7 on a vast 4K screen in the auditorium.

If you get a PlayStation 4, you know that you're buying into a console that has ten first party studios all creating games that you can only play on PlayStation that is bolstered by incredibly loyal third party support. Some were hoping that the final choice would be Xbox Scorpio, maintaining the original codename.

"The Xbox One S?".

Both consoles are targeted at the hardcore community, unlike Nintendo Switch which is a hybrid machine, primarily caters to a wide audience of users.

Both the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X represent a new era of mid-lifespan console upgrades. However, the regular "tick-tock" life cycles of major mobile phone manufacturers, with new versions appearing every 18months, have prepared consumers for shorter or simultaneous product lifespans. To that end, the One X has 12GB of GDDR5 (versus 8GB in the PS4 Pro), with a total memory bandwidth of 326GB/s (218GB/s on the PS4 Pro). However, the Xbox One X has to take the title for best design for the simple and elegant nature of the hardware combined the incredible advancements Microsoft has made since the initial Xbox One launch.

Xbox One X comes more than three years after the launch of the Xbox One, which critics slammed because you had to be online to play and because the system was locked. Xbox One X or PS4 Pro. In a report posted by the firm, games director Piers Harding-Rolls stated: "Crucially, we do not believe that, at this stage, Xbox One X is a device to re-ignite Xbox One sales in continental Europe and to gain market share from Sony in key sales territories outside of U.S. and United Kingdom". Gamers couldn't use old games on it or trade their old games in for new ones.

During a press conference, some of the first off these games were previewed, including a new game from the popular Assassin's Creed franchise - Origins.

While the PS4 Pro doesn't have the ability to render games in native 4K, it has the price advantage.
