Today at the E3 event, Microsoft revealed a couple of pretty cool goodies. First up on the list is the Xbox One X, which apparently, is the console we have been anticipating so eagerly over the past few months. And if the Redmond giant’s claims are to be believed, this could well be one of the most powerful gaming consoles currently out there.
The Xbox One packs backward compatibility and is expected to arrive on the 7th of November. The device is expected to carry a price tag of $499, which isn’t bad at all. The device is pretty small as well and indeed, Microsoft is calling it, its smallest console.

On the other hand, backward compatibility means that all of Xbox One’s game will run on the Xbox One X. Same goes for the accessories. Some other specifications of the device are as follows:
- True 4K gaming playback
- HDR video quality
- Premium Dolby Atmos
- 12 GB RAM
- 326 GB Memory Bandwidth
- Liquid cooling powered with vapor chambers
- Thanks to supersampling, titles in 900p will be able to run at full frame rates in 4K.
Games like Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Killer Instinct, Halo Wars 2 and Minecraft have all been upgraded to provide the 4K experience with the Xbox One X. Interestingly enough, Microsoft also took use of the occasion to announce a slew of new titles — 42 to be exact. Each of these titles is also supposed to work with all the consoles released before the Xbox One X. However, they will work best with the One X.
So there you have it: A compelling argument to buy the Xbox One X if you weren’t convinced until now and if $499 isn’t a particularly big deal with you.
