Back in the beginning of May, I published an article previewing Project Scorpio, the newest console to come from Microsoft. At their E3 briefing on Sunday, Microsoft showcased the Xbox One X (Project Scorpio was a code name). When doing my research for my previous article, I was blown away by the tech specs for this console, I wanted to get my hands on how the graphic aspect with this console, and boy did the E3 showcase give it to me.
I was in awe watching this showcase, especially with one of my favorite titles to be released this October, Forza Motorsport 7. This game plays in Native 4k with 60 frames per second, I thought I was in paradise when I played Forza Horizon 3 on my Xbox One with my 55″, but this takes the cake (totally fine I don’t need the extra sugar).
With 4k HDR graphics, a faster processor, and more memory than the Xbox One, the Xbox One X is going to take gaming to a whole new level. I feel like this is going to benefit those who play fighting games or shooters the most. There is so much more detail than I have ever seen in game graphics before. If you have not seen the E3 briefing from Microsoft yet then you need to watch it now! I swear you will not regret it one bit.
One of the more interesting things I find about the Xbox One X, is that titles for the Xbox One X will come labeled as “Xbox One X Enhanced”. According to Microsoft this means that “A developer has done special work to take advantage of Xbox One X’s 6 teraflops of power. Specific enhanced features will vary by game” this even goes for existing Xbox titles.
On top of existing titles being given the update for Xbox One X, we have a few new titles to look forward to playing in the 4K HD! Some of these titles include; Assassin’s Creed: Origins, Forza Motorsport 7, Ashen, Black Desert, and much more!
The Xbox One X will release November 7th, 2017 at a price of $499 USD. The system features a 1TB internal storage, along with 8GB Flash Memory, and 4K UHD Blu Ray capability, along with its many other technical features.
Who plans on getting this system? Sound off in the comments with what you think about the newest console in the Microsoft line up!
