Xbox reveals the Xbox One X or Project Scorpio

Xbox One X also comes with 12GB of 6.8Gbps GDDR5 memory, 384-bit memory interface and a memory bandwidth of 326GB/s.

Microsoft on Sunday unveiled Xbox One X - billing it as the most powerful video console ever made, and escalating a battle with market king PlayStation 4.

The company said the Xbox One X also features a "liquid-cooled vapor chamber".

Well for a smooth $499.99 you can step into the world of 4K gaming which is pretty expensive. The added kick in specifications is meant to increase the gaming experience for the users who are waiting for the next gen products. Developed under the codename "Project Scorpio", the console be released on November 7 on all Xbox One markets.

The new gadget's chief rival, Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro, is arguably a better deal, costing $100 less than the Xbox One X. And analysts over at gamingindustry.biz are already predicting the price tag on Microsoft's new box will make it a "tough sell" with consumers.

Project Scorpio has been revealed to be another xbox with a bit more power. The company did announce 42 new games to go with the console, however.

The system will also be backwards compatible and be able to play other Xbox games.

The X has 22 "console launch exclusives" including Crackdown3, Forza Motorsport 7, and Sea of Thieves.

Sony wants to continue outselling the Xbox, and dropping the price of the PlayStation 4 Pro is an easy way to keep its lead. In fact all previous Xbox games should be playable on this machine if you have the original disc. The Xbox One, while highly regarded by many, is estimated to have undersold the Sony PlayStation 4, its biggest competitor, almost two to one. Both Sony and Microsoft have now released two new versions of their PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles in the previous year, presumably in an effort to continue driving sales even when new, generation-defining hardware isn't quite ready.

Every Xbox One X unit will come with a 1TB hard drive, a matching Xbox Wireless Controller, HDMI cable, power supply, a 1-month free Xbox Game Pass subscription, and a 14-day free Xbox Live Gold membership.
