Microsoft launched its Xbox One X last week and the company was successful in selling 80,000 units in the United Kingdom in the first week of its launch. The Xbox Marketing Chief confirmed the number of units sold and the company is expecting it to increase the sales in other parts of the world as well.
However in spite of the encouraging sales of the Xbox One X the company plans not to include the console in its Black Friday Deals since the company expects the device to show positive results in the coming holiday season.
Microsoft announced the Xbox One X at its E3 2017 on June 11, 2017 and is said to be the most powerful gaming console ever built by the company with a 4K resolution display.
It also has 12 GB of GDDR5 RAM of which 9 GB can be used by developers for their games. Microsoft will be using a custom GPU engine for Xbox One X which runs at 1172MHz. Xbox One X also has an Ultra HD Blu-ray drive for 4K movies and entertainment and 1TB of storage.
Microsoft also announced that existing Xbox One accessories will also work on the new Xbox One X. Microsoft is expected to use “super sampling” for the One X that will make new games look much better on 1080p TVs.
