The Xbox One X will be great ... next year

The Xbox One X will be backward compatible will older Xbox titles, which will not only load faster but also look and play better than on older Xbox consoles.

Crucially, Microsoft has decided to make the Xbox One X compatible with all existing games, meaning gamers will not be forced into buying expensive titles exclusive only to the new console.

The gaming company AtGames announced miniature versions of two classic consoles: Atari Flashback 8 Gold and the Sega Genesis Flashback. The Xbox One X is certainly powerful, but it has one major problem - the lack of exclusive games.

As big a deal as Microsoft made this Xbox One X unveiling, it has a tough job ahead of it: Convince everyone that they need a 4K console, even if they don't have a 4K display to put it on.

YouTube/XboxA preview of Microsoft's Xbox One X. The Xbox One X has been confirmed to release this November, and Xbox's marketing boss Albert Penello has revealed on IGN Live (via Twitter) that pre-orders will be available "later this year". I'm not going to bag on Microsoft for pricing the Xbox One X at $500; it's a genuinely good price for what you're getting.

That shoudn't be necessary for the vast majority of Xbox One X games - it's got more than enough power for native 4K.

Microsoft is also shipping the Xbox One X with an Ultra HD Blu-ray drive for 4K movies and entertainment, and 1TB of storage.

Microsoft is clearly making an ambitious push with the Xbox One X. Without pre-order numbers, though, it's hard to determine how the public is reacting to the latest console iteration. The console in itself is a marvel of engineering and Microsoft should be commended for not only fitting such a powerful piece of hardware into such a tiny case but also making it a lot more affordable than many initially anticipated.

The Xbox One X is offers 40% more computing power than its main competitor PlayStation 4 Pro.

Hey, do you still have your original Xbox? But at the end of the day, bragging rights aren't almost as fulfilling as having a mature system with a rich library of games you'd actually want to play.

The same thing could be said about Xbox One exclusive "Forza Horizon 3". Sony will have surprise announcements to make an impact at the E3 2017 and create buzz. If you have a 4K TV then get ready for true 4K gaming which also includes recoding your gaming footage in 4K at 60 frames per second and 4K screenshots to share with your friends.
