Microsoft’s flagship Store on Fifth Ave in New York City celebrates their first Xbox One X consoles leaving the shelves as they finished counting down to the midnight hour. This means (at least on the east coast) that it is finally November 7th and they are hot and ready for the purchase (assuming that is you can get your hands on one before they vanish).
The Xbox One X has so many things going for it, as it can play the entire Xbox One catalogue of games, some of which with a giant boost in graphics and performance (over 70 titles in fact, to grow towards 160 in the near future). It can also play all of the Xbox 360 backward compatible games as packs some of the largest hardware improvements we have ever seen.
“We’re excited to offer gamers the world’s most powerful console with access to the largest games lineup in Xbox history — more than 1,300 titles and more than 220 exclusives.” — Phil Spencer, head of gaming, Microsoft Corp
Strap in for superb 4K graphics with HDR (High Dynamic Range) and many more features to quench your gaming thirst. The new console can also play all of your favorite 4K Blu Rays as well as tap into the always growing market of streamable content, from apps like Netflix and Hulu.
With support for Dolby Atmos, you can also prepare to be surrounded like never before by the games you play, as their soundtracks travel both around and above you for total audible immersion.
It is now available via a global launch, in 35 markets around the world–including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, UAE, UK, and U.S.. So let’s home that Microsoft can keep up faster than Nintendo has been able to.
If you’re looking to get your hands on one, it will run you $499 (US) with a 1TB drive. If it is past midnight where you live (else it will still say pre-order only, which still means the order’s in anyway), then the button below will guide you to Amazon where you may be able to jump on it.
