Xbox One X announced at @E3. Backwards compatibility confirmed!

E3 kicked off in full swing yesterday with an onslaught of announcements. One such revelation is the unveiling of the next evolution of the Xbox One console, known as the Xbox One X…

The Xbox One X immerses you in 4K graphics for the latest Xbox titles! It draws upon an 8-core custom AMD CPU, a 6-Teraflop GPU and twelve gigabytes of GDDR5 to maximize graphics, performance, stability and more for the best gaming experience possible. Although it’s a new console, it actually comes at a smaller size while drawing upon more resources for functionality.

Even better, players can now take it back to the classics by utilizing the Xbox One X’s backwards compatibility to play titles originally designed for the original Xbox and the Xbox 360! As this has been one of the most highly requested features from the Xbox community, the company is ecstatic to finally grant this request using their latest advancements in software.

It’s important to note that a majority of the games revealed for the Xbox One X are meant to be played only in 4K graphics, such as Forza Motorsport 7, Crackdown 3, State of Decay 2 and so on. Such games will be indicated by a logo that reads, “Xbox One X Enhanced.” Should you be planning to grab any of the titles revealed at E3, you’ll want to consider placing a pre-order for the new console.

The Xbox One X comes to retail stores on November 7, 2017 and will be priced at $499. For more details, visit the Xbox website.

E3 is currently ongoing at the Los Angeles Convention Center throughout the week until Thursday, after which CEO 2017 kicks off in Orlando to celebrate the FGC’s second-largest event! If you happen to be near Los Angeles and want to attend, visit the E3 website and purchase your ticket now!
