'Xbox One X' Console Launches Worldwide

The Xbox One X has a lot of promises to fulfil and the pressure is on Microsoft to deliver them. Eighteen months after the fall of the last human city in "Gears of War 2", the war against the Locust rages on, but a new enemy has emerged.

Microsoft saw incredibly strong pre-order sales of Xbox One X, and expects the new console to be in high demand this holiday season. The craftsmanship in the Xbox One X hardware means it's not only the world's most powerful console, it's also the smallest and most feature-rich Xbox ever.

The follow-up to Titanfall has only been Xbox One X enhanced and unfortunately does not support 4K or HDR.

Xbox One X launches tomorrow, bringing with it a solid number of games that will be available to play, with more on the horizon in the coming year.

The interview, which comes on the eve of the launch of the upgraded Xbox One X console, was brief but wide ranging.

The Xbox backwards compatibility programme is also in play here, meaning plenty of Xbox 360 titles and even some original Xbox games will also work on the new One X, creating an impressive range of content.

"Gears of War 3" is the spectacular conclusion to one of the most memorable and celebrated sagas in video games.

This is a problem.

The other major issue is the £449 price tag.

Assassin's Creed Origins is already stunning on PS4 and Xbox One, but it will look even better in 4K using the full capabilities of the Xbox One X Scorpio engine.

There is no doubt you get what you pay for experience-wise - Xbox says this itself and is keen to emphasise that it sees the One X sitting above the One S in a "family of devices" rather than replacing it - but some may find it tough to part with so much.
