E3 2017: Microsoft unveils Xbox One X

Microsoft has unveiled the latest games console in its line-up, a more powerful version of the Xbox One called the Xbox One X. The tech giant touted the machine's specs, including its capacity to run games in 4K ultra-HD, ahead of the E3 games show in Los Angeles. To be released on 7 November, the Xbox One X will cost $499, or £449 in the UK. One analyst said Microsoft was keen to keep attracting hardcore gamers. "The Xbox One X is targeted at a specific audience, which is at this stage early-adopting Xbox fans - console gamers that want the best device," said Piers Harding-Rolls, a gaming analyst at IHS Technology. When Xbox One X was announced at E3 last year - then codenamed Project Scorpio - it seemed Microsoft was gearing up to tackle the biggest new area in gaming, virtual reality. These and many others will be available only on the Xbox One, Xbox One S and Xbox One X consoles and Windows PCs. Read and watch more E3 coverage.
