Microsoft Offers Huge Xbox One X $200 Discount to Fans

The Verge

In the spring we looked at the current state of Xbox One's games and declared the obvious: that they really need bigger exclusives this year to combat the hot streak of exclusives Sony had for the PlayStation 4.

Fans now have the chance to secure an Xbox One X, previously known as Project Scorpio ahead of the launch on Tuesday 7 November 2017 at a retail price of £449.99.

There are more than 100 games that feature Xbox One X enhancement but all 100 games will not have these enhancements at launch.

"Get Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition before it's gone forever", reads the teaser from the company. Preorders for the Xbox One X should become available again sometime during the fall, but if you were holding out for the special "Project Scorpio Edition", it seems you've missed out. The device comes with more powerful hardware than the original Xbox One, including a 172 MHz graphics processing engine capable of processing six teraflops. In a Twitter response posted over the weekend, Ark lead designer and programmer Jeremy Stieglitz said that cross-platform play between PS4 and Xbox One is "working internally, but now Sony won't allow it". Buyers also get a Blu-Ray drive in the packaging.

Submarine owner says missing reporter died in accident
Kim Wall, a 30-year-old reporter, was aboard Madsen's submarine on assignment when she disappeared more than a week ago. The first launch of his 40-ton, almost 18-meter-long (60-foot-long) UC3 Nautilus in 2008 made global headlines.

If the Xbox One X is the only console that you have then you will need to download files and textures.

In an interview with Game Reactor at Gamescom 2017, Head of Xbox Games Marketing Aaron Greenberg responded to a question about cross-play by saying that they are "absolutely" talking with Sony about the subject.

Unsure of which games you should pre-order alongside the console? Last but not least, Xbox One X is capable of doing anything that the older console is able to do. It will support 4K video, with 8 million pixels and high-dynamic range (HDR). We want to align with their messaging and what they want to say when they want to say it.
