Xbox One X: What a tease! (The 3:59, Ep. 238)

With the Xbox One X (formerly Project Scorpio) getting its full unveiling during Microsoft's E3 2017 conference, the pressure was on for the company to really sell it to players. However, the console's specs - including memory and processor speed - are lower than those of the Xbox One X, and it is does not play 4K Blu-rays.

Xbox One X launches November 7 at $499/£449/€499, and not only will it improve all games made for it, but all already released Xbox One games will see a performance increase as well.

Xbox chief Phil Spencer said the goal of Xbox One X was to deliver a device that would "empower developers, delight gamers and deliver true hardware and technical innovation". The technical upgrades support the ability to run video games in native 4K resolutions, while also allowing games to run faster and pack a lot more detail. Sure, it's the most powerful console in the world, but power means nothing if you've got no exclusives to really show it off.

Microsoft has announced the Xbox One X - the latest premium addition to its Xbox family.

Past year at E3 Microsoft hinted that project Scorpio would be a platform for virtual reality gaming, but the company made no mention of VR during the Xbox One X announcement, and no VR games are being launched with the hardware. That's a whole $100 more than Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro.
