It’s currently lighting up at various retailers around the world.The Xbox One X will cost $499, and will launch on November 7th 2017.
It also comes with a lot of juice under its hood (at least for a console), including a CPU/GPU combo capable to deliver 6 teraFLOPS of computing power, 12 gigabytes of GDDR5 RAM, a one terabyte hard disk drive, and a 4K ultra HD Blu-ray disk drive. Microsoft promises that it will deliver true 4K gaming experience to the console space, even if developers have been left free to decide whether to aim for 4K resolution, or use the power for other elements, like frame rate, additional details and more.

On top of the pre-order details, we also got the official announcement of a special edition: It’s called the Xbox One X “Project Scorpio Edition.” and it comes with a special color and “Project Scorpio” branding on the front plate and on the controller.
For those of you who aren’t aware, “Project Scorpio” was the original code name of the console back when it was revealed at E3 2016. One year later, at E3 2017, Microsoft announced the official name for the console, intended to be a nostalgic callback to the origin of the brand.
However, many people have grown fond of the “Project Scorpio” name, which is the reason behind this special edition. The good news here is that It will cost USD $499.99, just like the standard console.
Of course, only “very” limited quantities will be produced, so if you want to immortalize your status as a hardcore fan, or you simply like the name “Project Scorpio,” book one quickly before it’s too late.
The Xbox One X won’t have exclusive games, as it will fully share its library with the original Xbox One, which means that it will also be backward compatible with specific Xbox 360 and even original Xbox games down the line.
