Xbox One X release date announced: Pre-order information

This is something gamers have wondered for the past couple of years, and to Microsoft's credit they have never been closed off to the idea.

The Xbox One X is expected to be released on November 7 with an estimated retail price tag of $649.

There's also a UHD Blu-ray player, a component missing from the PlayStation 4 Pro.

"Xbox enthusiasts will pay significant sums to get hold of the latest and greatest", he said, forecasting Microsoft will sell 500,000 Xbox One X consoles during the fourth quarter. Memory Bandwidth is 326GB/s versus 204-219GB/s on the Xbox One. This is good news for a console market that is already ahead of PCs when it comes to employing HDR, which goes beyond resolution.

Xbox One X has a custom AMD CPU with eight x86 cores, which are clocked at 2.3GHz.

Keighley presses further, asking if we can expect dedicated VR devices to use with our Xbox One X consoles in the future. But now that the deal has ended, Porsche cars are making their way into many other video game franchises. The first title that will be coming will be the multiplayer shooter Crimson Skies. The way it works is that you insert your original disc to get a digital copy.

Some existing games will be updated to take advantage of the extra power in Xbox One X.

Among the exclusive titles is Crackdown 3, the most recent release in the over-the-top open world action-adventure game franchise.

Kareem Choudhry speaks about the new Xbox One X at the Microsoft Xbox E3 2017 Briefing, June 11, 2017 at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, California. Example titles include Final Fantasy XV, Resident Evil 7, Rocket League, and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

"Xbox One X, the most powerful console ever made, sets a new standard for gamers and game creators", said Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft's Xbox division. Meantime, accessories such as wireless controllers and stereo headset adapter are also available.

The news is timely too, given that Microsoft announced earlier today that it would be adding backwards compatibility for the original Xbox to the Xbox One at its E3 keynote today.

Thankfully, with the likes of Assassin's Creed Origins, Anthem and Metro Exodus on the horizon, it's got the ideal games to flex its muscle. Microsoft gave the first glimpse at the game, which will launch on October 27, across platforms. Nonetheless, one of the things that I felt that stood out is the company's strong, cemented footprint in ensuring that their ability to do "true 4K" with these games was one of the highlights of every reel.
