Microsoft's new console is the Xbox One X

It weighs 7.2 pounds while Xbox One X weighs higher at 8.4 pounds with support for 4K, HDR along with 4K HDR Bluray support.

Now there are no pre-order deals for the Xbox One X, but we expect that a number of retailers will announce deals to save you money or help you score the latest games with your new console.

The Xbox One X is also "the most compact Microsoft console to date", says GameSpot, being 0.2ins (5mm) thinner than the base-level One S. It is smaller than the Xbox One S console. And older games will look sharper and run faster on the Xbox One X. They call true 4K gaming at 60 FPS which is going to be its most selling point from now on.

Under the bonnet is a six teraflop graphics processor running at 1172 Mhz, 12GB of GDDR5 memory and a 2.3 Ghz custom central processing unit.

Sony Interactive Entertainment chairman, Shawn Layden, said "We are selling every single one we can make", talking about PS 4 consoles. There were 42 games shown off in LA, with 22 of these being exclusive to Xbox One consoles.

Gymboree files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
The retailer said it hopes to slash $1 billion of its $1.4 billion in debt and to win approval for its plan by September 24. Gymboree is represented by the Kirkland & Ellis law firm, and filed its bankruptcy in Richmond, Va.

Sales of Xbox consoles now remain significantly behind those of the newer PlayStation models, which rumours suggest may be set to receive a price cut at Sony's E3 announcement on Monday.

Microsoft has been under pressure to overtake Sony, after the current generation PS4 steadily outsold the Xbox One following the launch of the two systems in 2013. Microsoft is calling them as Xbox One X Enhanced.

On the actual gaming front, gamers can look forward to Forza Motorsport 7 on Xbox One and Windows 10.

Announcing the console on stage at E3, Xbox head Phil Spencer said the new console would have hundreds of games available to play from day one. There is no any further information regarding the pricing and availability of this console to other regions, however, it is confirmed that the Xbox One X will soon be available in other regions of the world in the coming days.
