It unveiled it amongst a flurry of "console launch exclusives" and impressive (albeit wordy) specs. Thankfully for Xbox fans everywhere, the new console, Project Scorpio, will officially be revealed at the Xbox E3 Briefing Sunday. The price being $499 American. Also, the Xbox One X can support virtual reality. The hardware highly pitched to deliver seamless 4K output supported by various graphic enhancing technology.
Interestingly, this news came out just after the release of a (semi-debunked) report that the existing backward compatibility program on Xbox One isn't very popular. We did not build this to be a low price box. The game will feature over 700 cars, ranging from Ferraris to Lamborghinis.
"I didn't really see anything else which was oriented at the family", Mr Harding-Rolls noted. At $499, that's a big additional cost when - to its credit - the Xbox One is still a graphically brilliant console.
The challenge here is slightly different, and the variables aren't as aggressively in PlayStation's favour, even if the rules have changed. This means that any player looking to upgrade to the new console does not need to repurchase anything.
Boasting Xbox's custom-built Scorpio engine the Xbox One X will be able to play video games in full 4K resolution with HDR at 60fps.
"Our team of engineers are working hard to bring some of your original favorite Xbox games to Xbox One today", Xbox boss Phil Spencer announced at the company's E3 2017 keynote. And while the price is indeed premium, it should do well with hardcore Xbox fans.
PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS has sold more than three million copies since its Early Access release on March 23, 2017 and is now the third most played game on Steam, with peak concurrent users (simultaneous active players) exceeding 200,000.
