Seeing as these textures are quite huge and can wreak havoc on monthly data caps, Microsoft is allowing existing Xbox One owners to pre-download 4K texture updates so they don't spend the whole Xbox One X launch day downloading content.

Back in June, Sony told Eurogamer that the company did not have "a profound philosophical stance" against letting PS4 users play games with those on other platforms.

It was announced today by Grinding Gear Games that Path of Exile: The Fall of Oriath is scheduled to launch on the Xbox one August 24th at 2PM Pacific Time. "It's 'not right now" or 'It's something we'll consider.' That's paraphrasing, but there hasn't been any movement".

With the launch of the Xbox One X only a few months away Microsoft needs an interim win to keep people interested in the console that is now in a very distant second place to Sony.

The Xbox One X will start shipping, and reach retailers' shelves, on November 7.

Microsoft also announced that Shadow of War Xbox One S bundle will be released on October 10.

Before its official unveiling, the new Xbox was known under its code name "Project Scorpio", which Microsoft is now using to market a limited edition of the device to hardcore fans.

On topic of Call of Duty: WWII and Destiny 2 still missing out from the list of Xbox One X Enhanced Game List? As most of you know, Minecraft is now owned by Microsoft and the company is really trying to get as much money as they can with this title.

There's of course the port of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds as well, the most popular PC shooter that's still in early access - and this is a biggie for the Xbox One family - but even that one's only a timed console exclusive. Last but not least, Xbox One X is capable of doing anything that the older console is able to do.
