We’ve asked Microsoft’s representatives for local details but they¬†said they would “hopefully be sending out a statement later today or tomorrow”.

Original article: We all know that Microsoft would use its E3 briefing to deliver more Xbox Scorpio details. So what did it reveal?

For starters, the console now has an official name, in the form of the Xbox One X. This goes contrary to rumours of an Xbox 10 S name to bring it in line with Windows 10 S.

The company claims that the new console is the smallest Xbox ever.

Microsoft also revealed that the console will launch on 7 November, with a recommended retail price of US$499.

As for tech specs, we’re looking at a 2.3Ghz octacore AMD CPU, 12GB of GDDR5 RAM, a 4K Blu Ray drive and 1TB hard drive.

It’s not the only news that the firm had to share at the event, with plenty of gaming trailers and the revelation that original Xbox games would be coming to Xbox One.
