E3 2017: Xbox One X Will Indeed Support VR

Indeed. Much of the money that any platform holder makes is from software sales (that's why console games are more expensive than their counterparts on PC), and with Xbox One X this will be no different.

"I don't want to get into all the numbers, but in aggregate you should think about the hardware part of the console business is not the money-making part of the business", Spencer said.

Speaking to Giant Bomb (via Gamespot), Spencer said that supporting original Xbox games on Xbox One is more technically challenging than Xbox 360, and touched on the rights issue as another bump in the road.

"No", Xbox leader Phil Spencer told me in an interview this week, after I asked him if Microsoft makes any money selling the Xbox One X at $500.

Microsoft has been keen to include its PC user base in future gaming plans as shown by the Xbox Play Anywhere initiative, which debuted a year ago.

The controller is compatible with the Xbox One, Xbox One S and the upcoming Xbox One X. It is now unknown if it will be compatible with PC upon release.

Seven teams opted for the latter approach; one of them, the New York Islanders , were the only team to protect five defensemen. After a hectic Friday morning, the first round of the National Hockey League entry draft was taking place later that evening.

Over time, as the cost of making the console goes down, Microsoft's profit margin on each console sold will rise.

When it comes to the central processing unit (CPU), the PlayStation 4 has a slight lag compared to the Xbox One X as well.

At that price, the Xbox One X does not come with any accessories or any games.

While Spencer did not provide any timeframe as to when this emulation feature might happen, he did state that this is in their future, so it looks like we'll just have to wait and see.

In addition to a more powerful GPU, the Xbox One X offers higher bandwidth compared to the PlayStation 4 Pro. On paper, it's clear that the PS4 Pro is competing with the Xbox One S, rather than the Xbox One X.

Alongside the prominent reveal of the Xbox One X, it was announced at E3 this year that original Xbox games will soon be supported on Xbox One.
