Originally called Project Scorpio, Microsoft’s new console is actually called Xbox One X, following on from the naming conventions of the Xbox One S. We’re sure that’s meant to make things easier, but we can imagine the Christmas parental confusion between the Xbox One S and One X already.
The Xbox One X is what Microsoft is calling the “most powerful console ever”, but what you really need to know is that it’s a gaming PC in a living room friendly box and can play your favorite games in 4K and at a buttery smooth 60fps. It’s the dream.
It’s also adopted the lush design of the Xbox One S, albeit in more of a space gray and apparently it’s the smallest Xbox One ever too. How they managed to fit all that tech into a console smaller than the One S is baffling and a little bit magical.
The Xbox One X is out November 7, priced at $499 in the US and £449 in the UK.
