The Internet Reacts to Project Scorpio's Name, Xbox One X

Xbox One X was definitely Microsoft's go to platform for its E3 briefing this year, with just about all titles presented alongside a "Xbox One X Enhanced" label. According to Greenberg, the Xbox One X was "not created to be a low-price product, but a premium product for people that want the very best console gaming they've ever seen".

This approach will see Microsoft invest heavily in easing the production path for games developers to ensure that the device has the largest selection of content possible.

Known until now as Project Scorpio, the gaming giant has shown off the final hardware for the high-powered system for the first time.

Announcing the console on stage at E3, Xbox head Phil Spencer said the new console would have hundreds of games available to play from day one.

With a minimalist design, the "smallest Xbox, ever" is much more powerful than the PlayStation 4 Pro that can run some games at 4K/60 frames per second.

Those are pretty beasty numbers, so here's hoping the fans do a good job of stopping the iMac Pro from an early death. Spec-wise, it comes with the 8 and 10 Intel Processors , along with the 18 cores incredible Intel Xeon processor.

Microsoft has confirmed the Xbox One X will be launched worldwide on 7th November 2017.

Another cool announcement is the fact that the Xbox One will soon be able to play original Xbox video games.

However, as Microsoft points out, super sampling means that Xbox One X games will look better on regular HD TVs. The Xbox One X also has support for AMD's FreeSync technology and can output 4K gaming at 60Hz thanks to the inclusion of an HDMI 2.0b port.

The main question surrounding the Xbox One X, however, how many titles will actually take advantage of its reported ability to push out games at a 4K resolution. As far as pricing for third-party original Xbox games, Spencer said, "we don't control the pricing for third-party games, we never have". As revealed earlier this year, the Xbox One X will have a 6 teraflop GPU, 12GB of GDDR5 RAM, and 326GB/s of memory bandwidth.
