Get inside the making of Xbox One X, Microsoft’s most compact and powerful console yet

The youngest member of the Xbox One family arrives Nov. 7 as a powerful prodigy, absorbing the benefits and advantages of its older siblings but in a much more compact package loaded with performance perks built for true 4K gaming.

With its 6-teraflop Scorpio engine, the Xbox One X is 40 percent more powerful than any other console and also boosts its memory, speed, storage and more. And it does so in a housing unit inspired by the giant extraterrestrial stone in the film “2001: A Space Odyssey” (with a new color called Infinite Black) with a subtle shift in sections that’s as much about aesthetics as functionality.

The console broke records in pre-order sales of the Project Scorpio limited edition, which sold more in five days than any other Xbox before it.

This is the company’s first foray into true 4K gaming, giving players high-end clarity and resolution that shows up best on the increasingly popular 4K TVs consumers are adding to their living rooms. It’s a device that has innovation baked in, from a water-vaporizing technology to the Scorpio engine that makes gaming more satisfying than ever. Owners of Xbox One consoles are also going to see an updated experience when they turn on their devices – a new home screen and carousel that gets them faster to the apps and games they want. There’s also a new method of personalization that tailors the console to each user.
