Microsoft drops bombshell at E3 2017

Microsoft drops bombshell at E3 2017

Finally Xbox "Scorpio" Nope, Xbox One X is the brand new gaming console by Microsoft with high-end upgrades for $499.

What do you think of the Xbox One X?

He also spoke to the console's codename "Scorpio" and addressed why that branding didn't carry over to the final name. That's a big hint that we're unlikely to see Microsoft hone in on VR support as an Xbox One X feature for the November launch, nor at least until 2018.

However, unlike the generational leap between the Xbox One and Xbox 360, Microsoft's latest console will remain a part of the Xbox One family.

Spencer also won applause for the announcement that games from the original Xbox era in 2001 will soon become playable on the new machines too.

At E3 2017 today, Turn 10 and Microsoft have announced Forza Horizon 7, coming this year. Well, this E3, head honcho Phil Spencer made it clear what the Xbox team's stance on the concept is.

July 1 'extremely difficult' for GST roll-out: Amit Mitra
Job workers in the leather, diamond working, and textile industries will be taxed at 5% instead of the 18% set earlier. However, it may also discuss the GST rate for the telecom sector, which has been fixed at 18 percent.

"This is the fastest, most advanced processor ever in a games console", said Xbox's director of software engineering Kareem Choudhry, adding that the X was also the smallest Xbox ever. And the Xbox One exclusive Crackdown 3 may have been the sleeper of the presentation.

Alex Osborn is a freelance writer for IGN.

Not only did he make an appearance on Microsoft's stage at the press conference, he announced that Battlegrounds would be making a debut on the Xbox One exclusively this fall. Other titles will take advantage of the new Xbox One X Enhanced program, meaning they will automatically get better when played on the new console.

That doesn't mean that Microsoft won't include Dolby Vision support for Xbox One X at a later date via a firmware update. Despite the Xbox One X being smaller than the current Xbox One S - which will stay on sale - this is far, far more powerful. In fact, Sony recently announced that it sold more than one million headsets globally since it was launched in October of previous year.

Perhaps the most notable feature the Xbox One X has is its backward compatibility. And this wasn't just a vague promise, as Microsoft even had Bethesda announce that Fallout 4 VR would be coming to Xbox One X at that initial introduction past year. The long-awaited animated shooter Cuphead was also highlighted and given the release date of September 29. This easily beats the PlayStation 4 Pro, which should give Sony some concern.
