Called Xbox One X (previously called Project Scorpio) Xobox fans will be able to get their hands on the console this November.
Xbox One X will launch on 7th November 2017 and it’ll be the smallest Xbox branded console Microsoft has built. With native 4K one of the biggest features several other additions have also been revealed. The new console will be liquid cooled with a vapour chamber, a first for any home console, a custom AMD chip called the Scorpio Engine and Forza Motorsport 7 has been shown.
Last year Microsoft stated that Project Scorpio (as it was called) would support virtual reality (VR) but as yet the press conference hasn’t made any mention of the technology. It’s expected that the console would be compatible with an existing head-mounted display such as Oculus Rift, but there’s also Microsoft’s new mixed reality (MR) headsets from companies like Acer which might be a compatible possibility.
