"Yes there is an optional stand for vertical!"

Microsoft's brand new Xbox arrives on November 7th for $499. Given that the Xbox One X is smaller than the S, it might be that there is a new stand specific to that device, though there does not appear to be a product page available for it yet on Microsoft's website. The company analyzed all recent conversations about E3 2017 on the Internet, revealing that Microsoft was the most talked about company with 26.04% of all online mentions about the annual trade show. Global pricing is £449, €499, CA$599, and AU$649. "Most of the people will say, "I want a console that plays the games I wanna go play, and I feel great about the experience".

Today is the last day of E3 2017, and Microsoft is probably feeling good about its latest participation to the annual game industry's trade show. Crimson's one of my favourites from the original Xbox - I thought it actually looked really good, it was one of the things, putting it on a 4k screen, I was a little anxious about how some of the old games would look. "However, one of the most exciting announcements was the upcoming port of Psyonix' top-rated vehicular soccer video game, "#Rocket League", for the #Nintendo Switch. The game didn't exactly look like blockbuster sales material, but increased integration between console and mobile platforms is an interesting development from the company and worth keeping an eye on. Maybe next year will see a bigger blockbuster year...though this one isn't half bad.

In related news, Xbox boss Phil Spencer has told Metro that he knows the Xbox One S will handily outsell the more expensive Xbox One X, because most people don't care about teraflops.

Sony's exclusive software lineup continues to look stronger than what's coming on Xbox One consoles.

If these specs don't do much for you, think of the Xbox One X as a powerful console that's built more like a PC than a regular Xbox One.

When investing geniuses David and Tom Gardner have a stock tip, it can pay to listen. I suspect Microsoft is going to be making a loss on each sale rather than breaking even. The Motley Fool owns shares of and recommends Activision Blizzard.
