A lot of gamers have been waiting for the pricing and launch date for Project Scorpio. Well, Microsoft revealed that the Project Scorpio is actually called the Xbox One X and it will launch on November 7th for $499.99.

Yes, it’s the same price as when the Xbox One launched back in 2013 with Kinect for $499.99. The major difference is that this time the Xbox One X is coming at the curve instead of behind the curve.

There will be 40 new exclusives coming to Xbox platforms and 22 of them will be console exclusive. One of the exclusives will be Crackdown 3, which is due for release on November 17th later this year.

Microsoft also announced that the Xbox One X is not only the most powerful home console but also the smallest Xbox console they’ve developed to date.

The system is actually smaller than the Xbox One S, despite being extremely powerful.

One of the selling points is that the console will continue to use all of the previous accessories and peripherals available on the Xbox One and Xbox One S, including the very impressive Xbox Elite Controller.

All games will also be backwards compatible with the Xbox One X as well, meaning all of your current Xbox One library will play on the XBOX (clever acronym there Microsoft… avoids the issue the Xbone suffered from). In addition to that there’s also the ability to play Xbox 360 and OG Xbox backwards compatible titles as well.

Branding and marketing is going to be a really big issue because Xbox One X sure does look similar to Xbox One S, and a lot of casuals out there are too stupid to tell the difference between the two. That’s not to mention that the Xbox One X looks a heck of lot like a slimmer version of the Xbox One S.

Then again, if it’s only available in limited supplies and sold as more of a premium upgrade as opposed to their mainline console, then they may be all right.

    World’s most awful console name gets even worse.
    Next version will obviously be “XBox One X Box”.

    Here are the highlights of Micro’s Conference for me:

    -DRAGONBALL FIGHTERZ LOOKS FUKIN AMAZING, AW MUH GAWD! 😀

    -The Last Night looks pretty cool

    -They’re adding Original Xbox titles now to Xbone (don’t know if discs are included in that or not). Your move, Sony

    -Ori 2 looks interesting, will need to try out the first one soon

    -Okay, as much as I want to not like Bioware right now, they’re really kinda selling me on Anthem. Getting to fly around an open world in a badass suit is kind of a big seller to me. 🙂

    -$499 is honestly not too bad especially since I didn’t get the Xbone yet.

    -TERRY MUTHAFUKIN CREWS!!!!

    Honestly, this was one of their best showings in years. They got rid of the boring stuff right away, and then everything was pretty darn good by the second half of it. I’m kinda convinced now to get the XOneX once it releases.

    • DB Fighterz does look amazing. I’m glad more companies are utilizing Arc System Works’ method of using 3D models with 2D-style animations. It just looks really amazing.

        Isn’t Arc System Works developing the game? The point still stands that it definitely looks amazing, more people need to utilize that method, and MvCI suddenly has some extreme competition going on.

        • Heh, yeah it looks like they are developing it. Pfft, I guess that explains why it’s using the GGXrd design.
