New Xbox One X Unveiled, ‘The Most Powerful Gaming Console’

In an exciting news to gamers all over the world, Microsoft has unveiled its new console, the Xbox One X ahead of the E3 gaming event in Los Angeles.

The successor to last year’s Xbox One will give stiff competition to Sony’s flagship gaming console, the Playstation 4 Pro.

The new gaming console from Microsoft comes with UHD 4K resolution, liquid cooled technology, and 1TB of storage. The device will go on sale worldwide on 7 November for $499, and will be compatible with all current Xbox One games and accessories.

The new Microsoft gaming console comes with an HDMI-in port and no dedicated Kinect port. Surprisingly, there aren’t many changes in the new console over the older Xbox S model and the new X variant simply gets a little smaller.

The new Microsoft Xbox One X comes with high-end cutting edge graphics processing features like six-teraflop GPU and 12 GB of RAM. The console is also going to be shipped only in the black 1TB variant initially.

Microsoft also has some good news for current Xbox gamers as popular games like Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4, and Halo Wars 2 will receive free upgrades to 4K for their games.

There is no word on when the console will come to India, although we can expect it make it to Indian shores a couple of weeks post the global launch.
