The company says that the new console provides a four-fold increase in graphics performance over the original Xbox One as well as a 31 percent increase in CPU speed and 50 percent increase in onboard RAM.

Despite the high power of the new console and its built-in power supply, the Xbox One X is smaller than any previous Xbox.

There are now 300 backwards compatible titles and no Xbox One X exclusives have been announced yet.

As the house lights dipped for the start of the Xbox press briefing last night at E3, there were so many questions circling around Xbox's Project Scorpio: What did it look like?

According to Microsoft, the Xbox One X reveal was all about how the system could do more, from 4K visuals to a larger back catalogue.

Instead of developing VR for the Xbox One, Microsoft sees more potential in the PC market.

As Kotaku notes, the Xbox One X is indeed a powerful gaming console and one that hardcore fans might absolutely love.

The Xbox One X boasts a 6 teraflop graphical processing unit, 12 GB GDDR5 of graphic memory, and an 8-core custom AMD central processing unit.

Mr Spencer confirmed the Xbox One X will cost £449 when it goes on sale on November 7.

Among those included in the price cut is the Xbox One S "Battlefield 1" 500 GB bundle, as well as the Xbox One S "Forza Horizon 3" 1 TB bundle. It's biggest arch rival, Sony's PlayStation 4 has been outselling the company's Xbox One for months now.

And while Sony started to sell its PS VR headset as an accessory to the PlayStation 4 a year ago, Microsoft kept mum on VR Sunday. However, one concern for many commentators and players alike was that this new console would only serve those people who already own a 4K television.

Microsoft has unveiled a new version of the Xbox One at this year's edition of video game trade fair Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).
