Is the Xbox One X actually worth paying for?

Microsoft finally took the wraps off the Xbox One X, formerly known as "Project Scorpio", during its keynote talk at the E3 games conference yesterday.

Beyond being billed as the "smallest Xbox ever", the most touted feature of the Xbox One X is its ability to support "True 4K". So, the PS4 Pro remains the most powerful console right now. Availability will start on November 7 in every market where the Xbox One is available. The new console is slimmer than the Xbox One S, another Xbox One variant which the company released earlier this year. Prices for both of these bundles will be discounted by $50, according to the announcement by Microsoft. Because of these various categories and the decision to provide more options to fans (which we most certainly applaud), the company has made it hard to support its console with what should be a strong library of games. The Xbox One X will launch at a whopping $600 here in Canada - almost twice the cost of the most affordable Xbox One S bundle, and a $100 premium over the only slightly less powerful PlayStation 4 Pro* (though, it's worth noting, Canadian gamers are actually getting a deal compared to their American counterparts once you factor in currency conversion**). Meanwhile, the Xbox One X promises to 4K HDR gaming at 60 frames per second for a smooth and fluid experience.

What Witnesses Saw When Gunfire Struck A Congressional Baseball Practice
An avid sports fan, Scalise distributed commemorative baseball bats to fellow members when he ran for the leadership post in 2014. The Congressional Baseball Game is a charity game between Republican and Democratic Congress members established in 1909.

Caveat for all options: I recommend you have at least a full HD 1080p or ideally a 4K display to gain some graphical benefit from the upgrade. While it's maintaining compatibility with all existing games, Microsoft is clearly using the One X to look forwards though.

So how about hardcore gamers - video game fanatics who are willing to spend thousands on a gaming rigs that will play the latest PC games at 4K resolution and 90FPS? Trade in value on most of the original consoles has almost dried up with options at Gamestop limited to just a couple of console configurations listed on their trade in value page with options ranging from $75 to $110.

And all of it probably made Sessions' boss very happy. "Do you like Jason Bourne or James Bond movies?" asked Cotton. He then pointed out that with the "new evidence", Sessions thought the investigation was "back on track again".

But that narrows down the Xbox One X audience considerably.

Game play on 4K screens, whether they be televisions or personal computer monitors, is expected to be among themes at E3 this week.

Others said they could see people inside using flashlights and mobile phones to try to signal for help from higher floors. I'll be demanding answers", he told reporters. "This is mass murder and these people need to be put into court", he said.

You may have noticed that four of these were announced some time ago and are just now getting release dates, further accentuating the exclusive drought that Microsoft's consoles have been suffering. The new update will introduce 4K graphics rendering, crossplay support and "massive servers". The One X is also 31% faster than Xbox One and offers 4.6x more graphics performance. Looks like Halo meets Titanfall 2, and that should be enough to get you pre-ordering it already.
