KXIP vs KKR Live Score

An updated model with vastly improved hardware, Xbox One X, is set to launch November 7, becoming the third Xbox One model since 2013.

This news follows on from previous reports that original Xbox One consoles were no longer available to buy from the Microsoft UK online store, so the official confirmation isn't a huge surprise.

In a recent interview Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg says he wants a more diverse game lineup in the future for all of the Xbox One consoles. Microsoft struggled to sell the Xbox's "all-in-one" message that emphasized entertainment. Over 100 games will support the console at launch, but its all-important exclusive Crackdown 3 will be missing the launch window after it was delayed until Spring 2018.

The Xbox One X port is being handled by Nixxes, the same studio behind all other ports, including PC, and PS4 Pro. As the console began to get more compact the more praises it gathered.

Bob Puzon, senior vice president of merchandising for GameStop added: "Microsoft has done it again!"

The Xbox One X units were sold out within 25 minutes on Amazon and there are more Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition consoles that fans have pre-ordered in the first 5 days than any other Xbox's that have ever been released.

"As is typical for the console industry, we stopped manufacturing the original Xbox One when we introduced Xbox One S", a Microsoft spokesperson told Eurogamer. "This new system is definitely going to change how video games are played".
