Default Xbox One X

Xbox Scorpio was revealed as "Xbox One X" and will cost $500 in the US.

Microsoft also revealed at the end of their confrence they would be bringing original Xbox backwards compatibility in some form (for all XB1 hardware), but no specific list of games was given other than Crimson Skies.

Yes, it's too expensive. But like the PS3-camp would have argued back in the day, this is what the tech costs. It's got a lot of horsepower with a lower footprint than even the xbox one S (which is pretty small) and has "liquid cooling". It's a good looking piece of kit for sure.

Exclusives, etc. Yeah you know what you're getting at this point if you buy an xbox, a forum that worships the works of Akitoshi Kawazu and Yoko Taro obviously aren't going to get a lot of value out of it, but frankly these days I'm a huge Forza nut and that alone is enough for me to stay on board considering GT takes a bazillion years to lurch out the gates at this point.

I was hoping it'd come in at 449, but alas. If they have an aggressive trade in program at gamestop, I'll probably pick one up.

OG xbox backwards compat was a shock for me, I hope it works out but they're going to have to come up with a solution to original xbox live not existing anymore (I'd just say too bad). I think it's going to end up just being limited titles being released which is a shame: as there is no original xbox digital marketplace they would not be held to the same laws about reselling that 360 titles are subject to.

At some point in the future, the Xbox name is going to be all X's.

Nothing but X's.

Actually this is an even bigger fuck-up of a name 'cuz the Xbone X will be on store shelves alongside the Xbone S, the cheaper non-upgraded model. This is surely gonna lead to some ruined Christmases this year. =/

I presume someone has already made the joke that it's pronounced X-Box One Ten.

Did they show any Crackdown footage? Otherwise I'll stick with my giant rev 1 Xbone that is exclusively used for Rock Band and Twitch streams.

As the Xbox Zero continuously questions what it's fighting for.

Mega Man X and Zero were summoned to receive their new video game consoles, and were excited to see who would get Microsoft's new console, and who would get Nintendo's.

Zero was given his console first, "Zero, one Nintendo Switch."

Mega Man X got his console second, "X, one Xbox One X."

I wonder how much longer Microsoft will hang around in the console game? The 360 was the only one so far with mass appeal. The other two ended up being for h4rdc0re g4merz only, which is not a reliable customer base at all.

Yeah, I don't really see anyone picking this up that isn't already onboard with the Xbone. True Gamers™ will already have a PC with better specs than this that can play the vast majority of its library.

The Xbox 360 was a success because Microsoft beat the PS3 to launch by a year, had the money to throw around to get support for it, and the 360 was a platform that was designed to be more accessible to PC devs than past consoles were.

Also Sony and the game industry in general (especially the Japanese side) underestimated just how pricey game development would end up being with the leap to HD. When Final Fantasy goes multiplatform you know something's up.

Yeah, a lot of the Xbone's 'exclusives' can already be purchased on PC. One of the reasons why I went PS4 over it was 'cuz I knew which platform was more likely to have games that might not jump ship to computers.
