Inspired by the sleek design elements of Xbox One S, now in black, Xbox One X is not only the most powerful console we’ve ever created, it’s also the smallest. Like the Xbox One S, it includes a 4K UHD Blu-ray player, built-in power supply, three USB 3.0 ports (one in the front and two in the back), and IR blaster. It can be placed horizontally or vertically with an optional stand. For those who already own an Xbox One S, all the cables you own will transfer over, with port locations designed to be an easy plug-and-play swap in your existing gaming setup.
Microsoft touts the new Xbox One X as having 40% more power than its rivals. It features a 6-teraflop Scorpio engine, 4K graphics, built-in supersampling for more visible detail and smoother edges, and more efficient loading times.
Xbox One X is built for true 4K gaming, which combines 2160p frame buffers, High Dynamic Range and Wide Color Gamut into a pristine visual package. It also offers an immersive audio experience that puts you in the center of spatial sound. Your 4K experience includes recording game clips in 4K at 60 frames per second and 4K screenshots.
All existing Xbox One games are compatible with the new device; however, Microsoft will be offering Xbox One X Enhanced versions of existing titles including Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Minecraft, Resident Evil 7, Final Fantasy 15, Rocket League, each upgraded to take advantage of Xbox One X’s additional performance. In addition, some of this year's biggest blockbusters will be launching in true 4K including Forza Motorsport 7.
Pricing and Availability:
Xbox One X will start at $499 USD / 449 GBP / 499 EUR / 599 CAD/ 649 AUD and begins rolling out to all Xbox One markets starting Nov. 7. Every Xbox One X unit will come with a 1TB hard drive, a matching Xbox Wireless Controller, HDMI cable, power supply, a 1-month free Xbox Game Pass subscription and a 14-day free Xbox Live Gold membership.
