E3 2017: PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Coming to Xbox One

Those without 4K TVs will still benefit from the One X's horsepower: where possible it will supersample 4K assets down to 1080p.

Microsoft has announced a supercharged version of its Xbox One console, as well as a diverse collection of new games and features coming to the platform, at an event ahead of the E3 expo in Los Angeles. Likewise, all Xbox One accessories (including, presumably, the Kinect motion detector device) will work on the Xbox One X.

On the techy side, it's powered by a 4 teraflop GPU, with 12GB of GDDR5 memory, and 326gb/s of memory bandwidth.

Microsoft has been under pressure to overtake Sony, after the current generation PS4 steadily outsold the Xbox One following the launch of the two systems in 2013.

The "Xbox family" now comprises the One X and the One S, with both being sold simultaneously at different price points.

More details will be revealed later this year.

Like Xbox 360 games, original Xbox releases will be given a small performance and visual boost. Microsoft claims the upcoming Forza Motorsport 7 will run in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second, and preliminary research performed by Digital Foundry indicates that it's very possible. Phil Spencer, who leads Microsoft's Xbox unit, said it will cost $499, and will be the most powerful game console ever built.

The new Xbox can play the same games as the Xbox One but with better graphics - something the rival PlayStation 4 can do.

Later today, we will finally get the information we desire about the Scorpio such as the final name, release date, and most importantly, games.
