After months of speculations, the Project Scorpio gaming console has finally been revealed by the company and has been released alongside 42 gaming titles from both small and large creators.

The Xbox X supports 4K, enabling game creators as well as players to make sure that their gaming experience is an immersive one, with better textures, smoother frame rates and faster load times — thanks to its 8-core AMD CPU and 12GB of graphics memory.

“Xbox One X was designed to be the best console to create and play games on, putting the greatest fidelity in the hands o the world’s best game creators to create true 4K games,” the company stated.

The good news for Xbox gamers is that the Xbox One games and accessories out there in the market are compatible with Xbox One X.

What’s more, the game titles for Xbox One will not only play better on the Xbox One X but look better too.

Alongside this, the company also announced that they’ll be expanding their Xbox One backwards compatibility library to house more Xbox 360 games as well as a few Xbox classics.
