The $500 Xbox One X will just do better at playing new Xbox One games, as it will also play some of old Xbox One games at a higher resolution. Several games are slated to receive the free updates for 4K compatibility when Xbox One X launches this November. The update has been announced by Microsoft during its E3 2017 press conference.
"Over 30 titles" are right now said to receive enhanced, 4K updates for the new Xbox One X. The 4K update for games will include "Gears of War 4," "Forza Horizon 3," "Killer Instinct," "Halo Wars 2," "Minecraft," "Final Fantasy XV," "Resident Evil 7", "Ghost Recon: Wildlands," and "Rocket League," as reported by IGN.
The above-mentioned games will be updated for free. Microsoft has hinted at a handful of other games which will be enhanced for Xbox One X at no cost during the E3 event, with much more expected.
According to Polygon, Xbox One X is scheduled to launch on November 7. The highly anticipated console is said to bear a price tag of $499.
The upgraded console will boast a more than a four-fold increase over the Xbox One's graphics capability, a 31 percent increase in CPU speed, and a 50 percent increase in onboard RAM. Microsoft claims that the new Xbox One X is the "smallest Xbox ever," and the black design looks very similar to the existing Xbox One S model. T
The Xbox One X console will ship with 6 teraflops of graphical power, more than its main competitor, the PS4 Pro, with 4.2 teraflops. Microsoft is using a custom GPU engine on Xbox Scorpio which runs at 1172MHz, a big increase over the Xbox One's 853MHz and even Sony's 911MHz found on the PS4 Pro. Microsoft is also transporting the Xbox One X with an Ultra HD Blu-ray drive for 4K movies and entertainment, and 1TB of storage.
