Xbox One X Formally Unveiled, Coming This Fall

With all the hype surrounding the new Xbox One X console and its $500 price tag, people would be forgiven to think that Microsoft would be making a killing off of the product. Maybe that's why Microsoft launched the Xbox One in 2013 at the same price the Xbox One X now sells for - it knows players would want to make the jump from the Xbox 360.

The backwards compatibility program has been a huge success on Xbox One, allowing gamers to play hundreds of Xbox 360 games on the new console without having to dig out the old one. It's packed with impressive technical specs: triple the memory of the Xbox One S console Microsoft released past year, graphics that top the PlayStation Pro, a terabyte of storage. "If you just look at the specs of what this box is, it's in a different league than any other console that's out there". It doesn't have to be that pretty, because it's more important that the games do.

Time will tell, but it's hard to see the Xbox One X being a blistering success story right out of the gate.

Trump admits he's under investigation
Rosenstein has been overseeing the Russian Federation probe since Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself. As his tweet Friday suggests, Trump has grown increasingly frustrated over the Russian Federation investigation.

The recent unveiling of the Xbox One X, previously known as Project Scorpio in its development stage, should have Sony worrying by now. Touted as the most powerful console ever, even over the Playstation 4 Pro's own impressive specifications, the Xbox One X will be coming out sometime this year, likely within a few months.

Recently, Ark: Survival Evolved developer also compared the game to the NVIDIA 1070 graphics card but was a little confused on the memory because the console has 12 GB GDDR5 and graphics cards don't have that much.

Without any doubt, Sony's PS4 and Microsoft's Xbox One are now the Market Leaders. Furthermore, Xbox One X may be expensive now, but its price would go down as the cost of developing one drop over time. So in that world, I have to show them an experience that's demonstrably better. We will have been in the market for a year with PS4 Pro, and that thing also is selling faster than we can make them. The framerate is still variable from game to game, but the prospect of a console running games at that truly is a testament to the fact that we've moved into the future.
