Xbox One X: Microsoft Releases Official Pictures, Specs, Size and Weight Compared with Xbox One S

June 12, 2017

Today, following Microsoft’s E3 2017 press briefing, the house of Xbox sent in a press release with the full spec sheet of the upcoming Xbox One X, including pretty much everything you may want to know, from the hardware components to the physical figures including precise size and weight, compared with both the Xbox One S and the original Xbox One.

Thanks to the spec sheet we learn that the Xbox One X is nearly the same size as the Xbox One S. It’s 0.5 cm wider, and 1 cm deeper, but being 0.5 cm thinner, it’s indeed just a bit smaller than its predecessor in terms of volume, just as Microsoft claimed.

That being said, Executive Creative Director Carl Ledbetter also mentioned that the Xbox One X is the most tightly packed console Microsoft ever built, and that reflects on the weight, which is 2 lbs heavier than the Xbox One S, and even 0.6 lbs heavier than the original Xbox One (but we have to consider that the first model did not have an internal power source), due to the fact that there is almost no empty room inside the shell.

You can see this and much more in the full spec sheet at the bottom of the post.

On top of the specs, we also get a batch of official pictures, showing the console compared against the Xbox One S, a nice look at the front panel and at the back panel with all the ports, and even a disassembled view showing all the main components of the Xbox One X.

Today, we also learned that the Xbox One X will cost $499, and the console will release on November 7th, 2017 worldwide.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
