Xbox One X news: release date, UK price and specs

Project Scorpio is now officially the Xbox One X, and it promises true 4K gaming at 60fps. Find out the best Xbox One X deals, price, specs and more here.

A year after Sony released an amped-up version of the PS4 in the PS4 Pro, Microsoft is now doing the same, giving the Xbox One S a bigger brother: the Xbox One X.

Here, we discuss all we know about the One X – formerly known as Project Scorpio – including the release date, deals, and some of the key features that you can expect from the high-end console, including full specs. Also read our Xbox One X review, including hands-on video.

When is the Xbox One X release date?

Following months of waiting, the Xbox One X is now available to buy following a 7 November 2017 release date.

How much does the Xbox One X cost?

There’s a high price tag to match the high-spec console: it’ll set you back £449.99/$499.99.

For comparison, the Xbox One X costs £100/$100 more than Sony’s rival PS4 Pro and we wouldn’t be surprised if that saw a price drop between now and the christmas to make the comparison even more favourable for Sony.

Where to buy the Xbox One X

Microsoft announced the launch of pre-orders in August 2017, but only for the limited edition ‘Project Scorpio Edition’ of the console, which includes an exclusive vertical stand and has ‘Project Scorpio’ inscribed on both the console and the included controller. Unsurprisingly, it sold out almost immediately.

If you’re looking to pick up an Xbox One X in the UK, head to GAME, Amazon, Argos and the official store; in the US check out GameStop, Best Buy, Amazon, and the Microsoft store.

You can pick up the console on its own for £449.99/$499.99, or bundled with other games like FIFA 18 or Forza 7.
