The Xbox One X has finally been announced, and it's a bit of a monster.

The Xbox One X is designed to power 4K gaming and provide access to all sorts of 4K media, including Netflix and UHD Blu-rays. The Xbox One X also supports HDR and wide color gamut for vivid gameplay visuals, in addition to various other technical enhancements delivered by game devs.

All that power comes at a price, though. Not only will you need a pricey 4K TV set to get the most out of the Xbox One X, the console itself is set to cost $499.99, which is certainly in the upper range historically when it comes to video game consoles.

There's a good discussion taking place on the Windows Central Xbox forums about this very topic right now, and we'd like to hear from more of you - do you plan on jumping on the Xbox One X when it launches this November?

I wasn't hugely big on resolution wars until I played Assassin's Creed Origins in 4K at E3 2017, and now I'm quite happy to say I'm converted. It was simply stunning. Picking up a 4K set might prove problematic for my finances, but hey, video games are more important than food and hygiene supplies right? Right?

Hey all, It’s official! The “Project Scorpio” Xbox is called Xbox One X. And it’s pretty, pretty, pretty damn impressive, at least in my opinion. There’s glorious 4K support. It’s powered by eight CPU cores clocked at 2.3GHz, 12GB of GDDR5 RAM and a GPU packing 40 Radeon compute units running at 1172 MHz. (Check out a full list of specs here.) But there’s also a pretty, pretty, pretty hefty...
