Microsoft is preparing to introduce the company’s most powerful console, the Xbox One X.
On a visit to the Microsoft Campus in Redmond, Washington, the Xbox division led by Phil Spencer opened a number of ways to appreciate the entire process of building the widely rumored Project Scorpio, finally known as Xbox One X over the past E3 from Los Angeles.
The Unocero YouTube channel recently revealed not only the tour of Microsoft’s facilities, where you can see the whole process of planning, designing, molding and testing the different versions of the console and its controls, but also an impressive easter egg dedicated to the franchise more dear to the company in the hands of 343 Industries. Of course, we are talking about Halo.
As a tribute, it is curious to discover that the motherboard of Xbox One X includes an image of Master Chief riding a scorpion, which can only be seen when disassembling the console and losing the warranty.
An unquestionable wink to Project Scorpio, whose special version of the console with the title demarcated of that codename, also includes the number 01051317, in reference to the years where Microsoft released editions or revisions of the Xbox consoles (2001, 2005, 2013, 2017).
It is not the first time that the small Master Chief has made a cameo on the board of an Xbox console, because in the lightest Xbox One S it can also be seen, of course without the galloping scorpion.
Xbox One X is significantly enhanced by a more powerful processor, increasing graphics performance as well as increased CPU speed by 31% and 50% more RAM (12GB total, 9GB available for gaming). The console features 4K Ultra HD & HDR technology for compatible TVs, running on all games, controls, and peripherals of the original Xbox One (already discontinued model).
Xbox One X will be released on November 7 worldwide, for a price of $499. Although the pre-order of the system is already available in different parts of the world, the units will be delivered from November 17.
