Rumors of the next generation of Xbox have been swirling for years, confirmed by Microsoft as Project Scorpio last year and then as Xbox One X a few months ago.
Xbox's Gamescom event today revealed a ton of new information about the console's imminent launch. Here are the answers to a few questions you might have:
What's the big deal?
Xbox One X has been repeatedly described by Microsoft as "the world's most powerful console". As such, the big deal lies in the company's ability to deliver on that promise, which has a lot to do with specs.
The console's Specs are - on paper - more impressive than the Xbox One and Sony's Playstation 4 Pro. The main places the Xbox One X shines is in its CPU speed, GPU cores, and memory amount/bandwidth. The console also boasts "true 4k" and an HDR mode for videos and games.
When does it launch?
The Xbox One X will launch November 7 of this year, almost exactly 4 years after the launch of the original Xbox One. Back then, many said there would never be another full-fledged console generation. It could be argued that's still the case, as this is more an iteration than a new product line.
What does it cost?
$499.99 is how much the original Xbox One cost when it launched in 2013, and $499.99 is what Microsoft's brand new Xbox One X will set you back. Though this time, you're paying for extra specs rather than the Kinect everyone everywhere totally loved.
What's in the box?
The Xbox One X ships with a 1 TB hard drive, wireless controller, power cable, a one-month Xbox Game Pass subscription and 14 days of free Xbox Live Gold.
Where can I get it?
Here are the retailers currently accepting pre-orders. Microsoft says it's the only way to get the limited 'Project Scorpio' edition.
