Something big is coming, something innovative and revolutionary, something that’s sent the online world into a frenzy – and no, we’re not talking about Stranger Things Season Two.
It’s the new Xbox One X we’re really excited about, and by the sound of the growing chatter and buzz in the gaming community, we’re not the only ones.
Boasts about the enhanced console’s speed and unrivalled power have sent anticipation levels soaring.
Here’s a quick rundown of all the rumours, facts and releases we’ve heard about the new Xbox One X so far – check it out.
A blast from the past
The Xbox One X, introduced to the world back in July during E3, is almost with us. To keep us going, Microsoft have maintained the hype with the announcement of one awesome addition – original Xbox backward compatibility.
Some of the original games entering the Xbox marketplace include:
- Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
- Fuzion Frenzy
- Dead to Rights
But Microsoft hasn’t just been turning back to the past for inspiration, no sirree. The future is looking bright, fast and crystal clear for the Xbox.
The most powerful Xbox yet
Determined to blow rivals out of the water, Microsoft has created a high-powered, high-res console the likes of which we’ve never seen before.
The specs really speak for themselves: games that play in native 4K resolution, custom AMD GPU for boosted clock-speed, AMD Free-Sync technology for stronger visuals, 12GB of GDDR5 memory and a 1TB hard drive, plus an upgraded audio processor.
Hopefully all that extra power will also mean that the browser – which has long opened up the console to browser-based HTML-5 games, such as the casual games on Miniclip or real money games found on Slot Sites, will also see a big improvement.
A whole host of features
But 4K resolution isn’t all we’ve got to look forward to. The Xbox One X will also support virtual reality gaming and boasts a UHD Blu-ray DVD player within its slimline, stylish black console.
And, thankfully, the games don’t disappoint either.
Similarly to the PlayStation 4 Pro, no exclusive titles are being released. It will simply support existing Xbox games and allow developers to add 4K support. Some of the games that will benefit from this support include Red Dead Redemption 2, Call of Duty WWII and FIFA 18.
A big publicity drive
Of course, there’s really only one question we’re all interested in – how long do we have to wait to get our hands on the revolutionary Xbox One X?
Well, the good news is, not long.
In just a few weeks (the 7th of November) the new Xbox will finally be released. You can also place a pre-order for the special Xbox One X Scorpio Edition and, if you’re too desperate to wait for the shops to open on the day, retailers like Argos are now offering one-minute-past-midnight delivery.
So there you have it – a quick rundown of the biggest facts, specs and exciting announcements surrounding the Xbox One X so far. Roll on the 7th of November.
