Tech Today: Xbox One X unveiled by Microsoft

Microsoft has unveiled the latest games console in its line-up, a more powerful version of the Xbox One called the Xbox One X.

The tech giant touted the machine’s specs, including its ability to run games in 4K ultra-HD, ahead of the E3 games show in Los Angeles.

To be released on November 7th, the Xbox One X will cost US$499.

One analyst said Microsoft was keen to keep attracting hardcore gamers.

The system, which also runs games at 60 frames-per-second (fps), was labelled “the most powerful console ever made” on stage by Phil Spencer, head of Xbox.

It is also the smallest Xbox yet.

It joins the Xbox One S – a slimmer version of the Xbox One that supports 4K video streaming.

Sony, too, has a console with 4K capabilities – the PS4 Pro – which it released in November last year.

However, the PS4 Pro’s specifications – including memory and processor speed – are lower than those of the Xbox One X.

Both consoles can “scale up” games not made at 4K resolution to enhance their visuals.

The Xbox One X’s name raised a few eyebrows, with some gamers describing it as a “tongue-twister” online.
