E3 2017: Xbox E3 press conference Recap, Xbox One X, Crackdown and more

Xbox One X will be the “smallest Xbox console ever,” and comes with a lot of horsepower under its hood (at least for a console), including a CPU/GPU combo capable to deliver 6 teraFLOPS of computing power, 12 gigabytes of GDDR5 RAM, a one terabyte hard disk drive, and a 4K ultra HD Blu-ray disk driver. It’s said to be able to deliver true 4K games to the console space.

As revealed earlier today, the Xbox One X has an RRP of $499. Analysts are cagey on whether the expensive, 4K-ready console will be enough to bring back Xbox One owners who have shoved the console in the cupboard, get Xbox 360 fans to make the generational leap, or lure anyone away from Sony’s domination of the generation.

Minecraft 4K Trailer E3 2017
Minecraft isn't just getting unified online play this year -- it's also receiving a huge image quality boost. Microsoft and Mojang have unveiled a Super Duper Graphics Pack (no really, that's the name) that will give the building game a major visual upgrade, including 4K resolution, high dynamic range, sharper textures and loads of special effects (including light rays and fancier water). Logically, you'll need an Xbox One X or a beefy Windows 10 PC to get the 4K HDR experience. The add-on is free when it arrives this fall, and the developers are quick to stress that it's strictly optional -- you can stick to the regular graphics if the Super Duper pack feels blasphemous to you.

Well hands down Xbox won this E3 this year as they revealed loads of amazing this, of course, the Xbox One X, but also some really cool games that got me excited such as, Assassin's Creed Origins, Crackdown 3, really think they did an amazing job with their conference.


The Crackdown 3 Trailer looks sick. This is also gonna be a great console. It looks insane. I hope sony will have a good console.


The Crackdown 3 Trailer where the man was going crazy and laughing, made me laugh a bit to be fair. Who else was laughing at him the crack head.


This is a seriously powerful console, I'll wait until the price drops a bit as I don't have that much to dish out. Games look phenomenal!


Metro, AC, Anthem, Crackdown and PUBG all look amazing. So hyped for this !


I'm really hyped for AC ORIGINS! Love the AC games!


I'm excited for Minecraft, State of Decay, AC and the Backwards Compatibility! Great conference really enjoyed it


This line up of games does look decent, some not my cup of tea but still a sick line up never the less.


I was pretty pleased with what Microsoft showed off, really excited for the X and all these new games.
