Mi­crosoft re­veals the Xbox One X

Computer Shopper - - NEED TO KNOW -

MI­CROSOFT IS BOAST­ING that its new Xbox One X con­sole is the most pow­er­ful con­sole in the world.

The prod­uct, for­merly known as Project Scor­pio, will cost £449 and will have at least 42 games back­ing it on re­lease. Mi­crosoft pro­claimed that the new Xbox One X is de­signed to give the best ex­pe­ri­ence to both gamers and devel­op­ers.

“Xbox em­pow­ers game devel­op­ers large and small to cre­ate dif­fer­ent types of games for ev­ery type of player,” said head of Xbox, Phil Spencer.

“Not only do we have the big­gest cross­plat­form block­busters on our plat­form, we’ve also scoured the world to bring our fans unique con­tent from cre­ative artists that cap­ture the imag­i­na­tion.”

Back­wards com­pat­i­bil­ity is a big deal, and Spencer said that the con­sole is retro-proof, mean­ing that gamers can draw on their ex­ist­ing col­lec­tion of games, as well as the 4K ti­tles de­signed for the Xbox One X.

A num­ber of ti­tles are ex­clu­sive to the con­sole, in­clud­ing Deep Rock Galac­tic, a first-per­son shooter with dwarves, and some are ex­clu­sive to the con­sole and Windows 10. These in­clude Forza Mo­tor­sport 7, which Mi­crosoft seems par­tic­u­larly proud of.

“The best-sell­ing rac­ing fran­chise of this con­sole gen­er­a­tion re­turns with Forza Mo­tor­sport 7. Ex­pe­ri­ence the dan­ger and beauty of com­pet­i­tive rac­ing at its lim­its with the most com­pre­hen­sive au­to­mo­tive game ever made,” the firm said.

“Driv­ers will ex­pe­ri­ence gor­geous true 4K graph­ics at 60fps and true res­o­lu­tion in HDR within 30 fa­mous en­vi­ron­ments, with race con­di­tions that change each time you re­turn to the track.”
