The Xbox One X is just a week away from its awaited launch. An important question, though, is how many games will be Xbox One X enhanced on launch day? Fortunately, there is a tweet from the Xbox’s marketing leader that touches on exactly this question.

70 enhanced titles arrive with the new console

It seems that for now, we can expect about 70 games improved by the new console during its first week of life, according to Albert Penello. We will definitely know more details after it’s out in the wild for a few days. We’ll also see if it’s really worth it to spend nearly $600 on the Xbox One X for the enhancements. On the other hand, 70 titles is a great place to start especially because more games will definitely be added along the way.

In case you forgot what to expect from the new console, here are a few features that will refresh your memory:
