You can finally buy the most powerful Xbox ever made: The $500 Xbox One X
The next version of Microsoft's long running Xbox line of video game consoles is named Xbox One X. It costs $500, and launches November 7. You can pre-order one starting on Sunday.
There's even a fancy "limited edition" version of the console - dubbed the "Project Scorpio Edition," in honor of the console's original codename - that will also be available in November. All pre-ordered Xbox One X consoles are part of the "Project Scorpio Edition" production run, at least until supplies run out. Here it is:
To be clear, the Xbox One X isn't the next version of the Xbox line of game consoles.It's considered part of the Xbox One platform, meaning that all games on the original Xbox One function on the Xbox One X (and vice versa). It's a more powerful iteration of an existing game console: the Xbox One. So what makes it worth $500 when a standard Xbox One - brand new - costs just $250?
For starters, it makes most games look far prettier than they already do.
The console is being touted as the most powerful game console ever made, and Microsoft says it's also the smallest Xbox ever made.
Though games and movies will look better than ever on the Xbox One X, Microsoft has a mandate that any games on the Xbox One X must be playable on all other Xbox One consoles as well. This is part of Microsoft's ongoing push toward a unified gaming ecosystem across various Windows 10-powered devices; like millions of PCs around the world, the Xbox One and the Xbox One X are powered by Windows 10.
