This is the exclusive Xbox One X boot animation

For the most part, the Xbox One X will have the same operating system as the Xbox One and Xbox One S you're used to today, with a few small differences. It will be able to output games in 4K, naturally, but also capture gameplay at 4K with a more powerful Game DVR. It will also get a special boot animation that celebrates the internal system, dubbed the Scorpio engine, in honor of the console's codename.

Xbox's Major Nelson has given us an early glimpse at the boot animation following a few leaks. Here it is in all its high-def glory.
