But Sony has an equally, if not more excellent lineup, which includes heavy-hitting titles such as God of War 4, The Last of Us II, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, Death Stranding, Detroit: Become Human, Days Gone, and more. Many out there have been rallying behind the Scorpio, now the X, for a year now saying it will be a huge Microsoft comeback.

Compared with its main competitor, the PS4 Pro, the Xbox One X appears to have a computing advantage - it should be noted that the PS4 Pro was released in September 2016, more than a year later, the Xbox One X will be released. I thought State of Decay showed up really well. In terms of RAM, the Xbox One X easily wins again with its GDDR5 12 GB configuration, against its competitor's 8 GB. That said, however, one question remains: exactly how much power will translate into any meaningful improvement in performance? "Scorpio' has officially been named the Xbox One X and will debut on November 7".

He did say that it will be compatible with games developed for the original Xbox One and Xbox 360, many of which will play faster and look better, the company said. This means that gamers can buy the new console if they want the greater processing power to run newer games, but they don't need to (exactly like with PCs).

The Xbox One X is a full £100 more expensive, at £449. It got stuck on 28nm chips for far too long, after failures to move to new designs, but finally AMD recently announced its new Polaris architecture. The Xbox One X will also be available with an Ultra HD Blu-ray drive for 4K movies, and 1TB of storage.

Monster Hunter: World is also coming to Xbox One contrary to popular belief.

Microsoft is set to release a new small gaming console, the Xbox One X will go on sale in Australia It's expected to cost around $699 which is more than Sony's high-end PlayStation 4 Pro.

But as E3, the video game industry's annual trade show, gets underway, Microsoft and Nintendo are both looking to unseat Sony - and they're bringing new hardware to do so. According to Julien, the game runs at a dynamic resolution on Xbox One X that adjusts resolution depending on the rendering load.
