Xbox ONE X United Kingdom release date, price and technical specifications

We know that Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3, and State of Decay 2 are coming to Xbox One, but will they come to Scorpio with enhanced versions? And to help facilitate that effort, they are updating their Xbox One Backward Compatibility program to now include original Xbox games.

What's worse is that Microsoft didn't really do much to subvert people's expectations for the Xbox One X. It's priced at $499 which is a little above the optimal console price and a little below a complete disaster.

On the techy side, it's powered by a 4 teraflop GPU, with 12GB of GDDR5 memory, and 326gb/s of memory bandwidth.

So while Microsoft's new console will hit the markets only in November, Sony will counter the Xbox One X with the PS4 Pro, a 4K-capable console.

A handful of Xbox One games will get patches to take advantage of the Xbox One X's additional power.

Shockingly, despite being the most powerful Xbox console ever, it is also the smallest.

Announcing that original, first-gen Xbox games will be added to Xbox Backward Compatibility later this year was nearly as well-received as the Xbox One X. The fact we'll be able to play Crimson Skies once more is a great feeling. The 4K gaming scene is entirely new and will likely blow our minds with pixel filled detail.

While Microsoft ultimately made a decision to call its new console Xbox One X, other names were considered and Head of Xbox Phil Spencer shared with IGN a few of those alternate names.

Microsoft first revealed that the Xbox One X was under development a year ago, giving it the code name Project Scorpio. And existing Xbox One games will be compatible with the new hardware. While that's hardly the end of the world, you can't help but feel like the Xbox One X is just a little too ordinary.

Forza Motorsport 7 have formed a 6 year partnership with world renowned auto manufacturer, Porsche and in a spectacular first ever unveiling at the Microsoft E3 briefing the new 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS made its world debut.

The Ubisoft prequel has an October 27 release date.
