Microsoft unveils 4K Xbox One X

Both the Xbox One X and the Playstation 4 Pro are marketed as sequels to their respective consoles, both of which were originally released in 2013, rather than successors. However, many fans were quite sad about the price, which is $499, which is around Rs. 32,000. During the Xbox E3 briefing, Microsoft sweetened the feature by including compatibility with original Xbox games.

Even those who don't have a 4K HDR television will benefit from the Xbox One X, which Microsoft says will provide better graphcs because of a feature the company calls "supersampling'".

Microsoft looks to take the lead in the 4kKgaming world with what they are calling the smallest and 'most powerful console ever.' The claim doesn't look to be that farfetched as the system is significantly more powerful than Sony's Playstation 4 Pro and can run some games at an wonderful 4k/60 frames per second. As previously announced, the Xbox One X will contain a 1 TB hard drive.

You see, the Xbox One X might be the most powerful console now on the market but it still falls squarely into the 8 generation of consoles. Sony will aim to hype the PS4 Pro, but not through talk about hardware, but through games that look stunning on the PS4 Pro.

The new console runs games at 60 frames per second (fps) and is equipped with 12 GB RAM and a graphics processor capable of carrying out 6 trillion floating point operations per second. All Xbox One embellishments and games will take a shot at Xbox One X, with Choudhry promising that the current amusements library will likewise get a refresh, including speedier load times and that's just the beginning, even without a 4K TV. It is also worth noting that Xbox One X will be directly compatible with all existing Xbox One games. However what wasn't confirmed regarding the game was that whether it will run at "true 4K" resolution or a different rendering solution.

Microsoft first revealed that the Xbox One X was under development a year ago, giving it the code name Project Scorpio.

It joins the Xbox One S - a slimmer version of the Xbox One that supports 4K video streaming - in the roster of consoles that make up Microsoft's latest console generation. The list of launch titles include games like Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Resident Evil 7, Final Fantasy 15, Sea of Thieves, Minecraft, Rocket League, and more, all of which will offer enhanced experience on the new console.

It is smart but shady marketing of their new platform.

Sony wants to continue outselling the Xbox, and dropping the price of the PlayStation 4 Pro is an easy way to keep its lead. Sony recently announced its PlayStation VR headset sales topped one million units. Xbox boss Phil Spencer was interviewed about the new console, saying the PS4 Pro is an Xbox one S competitor, not an Xbox One X. The console went on sale a year ago and is priced at $399 (or approx Rs. 25,856).

However, while the Xbox One X is capable of supporting virtual reality gaming, there was nearly no mention of this during the presentation and no demonstrations of games that use VR headsets. The Xbox One X is hailed by the company to be the "smallest Xbox, ever" lending to its minimalist design.
