Microsoft on Sunday unveiled the next generation of its Xbox One gaming console at an event in Los Angeles.
Xbox One X is being billed as the most powerful gaming console ever and is capable of playing the latest games in 4K resolution.
Microsoft says the GPU on the new console is 4 times more powerful than that on the original Xbox One and it also comes with 12GB RAM, with 1TB of storage and 2.3GHz AMD CPU.
Xbox One X also includes Dolby Atmos sound and is backwards compatible with older Xbox games and accessories.
Microsoft also said there were 42 new titles in the pipeline, 22 of which are exclusives, with well known franchises such as Forza and Halo available on the new console in the near future, while a new Assassin’s Creed title will also feature.
“Not only do we have the biggest cross-platform blockbusters on our platform, we’ve also scoured the world to bring our fans unique content from creative artists that capture the imagination,” said Xbox boss Phil Spencer.
Xbox One X will retail for US$499 and will be released worldwide on Nov 7.
Meanwhile, rival Sony will also hold its own press briefing on Monday June 12 where it is expected to unveil the latest news regarding its PlayStation console.
