What You Need to Know From Xbox's Massive E3 Show

The $500 Xbox One X, 'Anthem,' the return of 'Crackdown', backwards compatibility and more


Xbox One X

It's not Project Scorpio anymore, it's the Xbox One X and it will set you back $500 once it's released on November 7. That's a chunk of change when you consider that the PlayStation 4 Pro currently costs $399, and Sony could twist the knife with a price drop anytime, and probably will do during its own E3 stage show tomorrow. 

The box itself is a mat black, reminiscent of the PlayStation 2s of old, and the emphasis was on the visual power – the real 4K capabilities that will make Forza an even sweeter piece of eye candy.
