Xbox One X, Microsoft's new and most powerful console for gaming, has finally been revealed at the E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) 2017 at a press conference in Los Angeles.

Microsoft's latest console, the Xbox One X, has been making the headlines for the past couple of days.

Xbox One X dispatches worldwide on November 7 for $499. The no-nonsense black box of gaming power is about as simple as it comes where the hardware is concerned, but based on the gameplay we saw at the Microsoft presser yesterday, the Xbox One X is now the most powerful console in the world, in terms of specs. In addition, the Xbox One X is marketed largely towards tech junkies, many of whom already have powerful computers. The new console is slimmer than the Xbox One S, another Xbox One variant which the company released earlier this year.

The Xbox One X's name raised a few eyebrows, with some gamers describing it as a "tongue-twister" online. The product is being advertised as being capable of true 4k gaming playback that comes with an HDR quality video and Premium Dolby Atmos which will surely make you living room a gaming experience. Well, much like the PS4 Pro, it's still built on the same platform as the older hardware, so it'll run all the same Xbox One games - both old games and new ones. Just look at the many obscure PlayStation VR titles announced at Sony's E3 2017 briefing or even games like Doom VFR, Fallout 4 VR and Skyrim VR. Most of these have been about console and PC games, but there are some that involve the mobile market too (such as the upcoming South Park game). The ones for the Windows 10 are in fact Xbox Play Anywhere games. Even incidental details, like a rattling windshield wiper on a shaking vehicle in Forza Motorsport 7, speak to how much extra processing overhead developers have to play with on the new system.

Alongside the announcement Microsoft have added backwards compatibility with Xbox 1.

With a better memory and processing speed, the new Xbox One X is certainly more advanced than the PS4 Pro in terms of configuration. The console went on sale previous year and is priced at $399 (or approx Rs. 25,856).
