Xbox One X at E3, in moving pictures

Instead, Microsoft made a decision to focus on highlighting the device's powerful hardware: The Xbox One X, which was previously known under the code name "Project Scorpio", features a 172MHz graphics processing engine capable of processing 6 teraflops.

You can argue that the Xbox One X is more powerful - and you'd be right! - but it's tricky to show that difference to players who don't have a 4K television. Microsoft introduced to the gaming world its latest addition to the Xbox One console family.

There are apparently concerns that all that power packed into a slimmed-down device could increase the risk of overheating, as the console comes complete with a "vapor chamber" to help regulate temperature.

Sony wants to continue outselling the Xbox, and dropping the price of the PlayStation 4 Pro is an easy way to keep its lead.

Given the final reveal of the console's specs, it is fair to say that the Xbox One X is going to be something of a graphical powerhouse in comparison to its competitors. Is there some merit to VR on the Xbox One X in the future? Microsoft also revealed that several major titles like Minecraft, Gears of War 4 and Resident Evil 7 will be receiving upgrades to take advantage of the new console's capabilities. We'll have to compare games when they're released to see just how judiciously this badge is applied. However, for that small bump in resolution, customers will need to pay $100 more for the Xbox One X. However, there were a few notable exceptions including Forza Motorsport 7, which will feature native 4K on Microsoft's Xbox One X.

It can play 4K ultra-HD Blu-ray discs, unlike the PS4 Pro, but while it can support VR gaming there was practically no mention of Virtual Reality during Microsoft's presentation.

The backward compatibility support will basically work the way the Xbox 360 emulation now works on the Xbox One. This meaning that it's computing power is much faster than the Pro, allowing things to load faster and for more to load at once.
