Inside a filled Galen Center in Los Angeles, California, Microsoft kicked off its E3 Convention with the XBox E3 2017 Briefing and the announcement of the XBox One X. Welcoming in media, developers and other distinguished guests were men and women dressed in XBox gear, most notably a bomber jacket with three different colored controllers on the right sleeve. They handed everyone in attendance a translucent badge that alluded to the power, design and color of the next XBox.

The Washington-based company wasted no time diving head first into revealing that Project Scorpio is actually XBox One X, the next iteration in the XBox family. This new addition is not only the most powerful XBox ever made but also the smallest. Below we break down everything we learned from the Briefing.
