I Don't Understand the Xbox One X and Microsoft

I Don't Understand the Xbox One X and Microsoft

Microsoft is touting a launch lineup with breadth - it showed off 42 games at the Xbox One X's launch news conference, 22 of which are exclusive to Microsoft at launch.

With 40 percent more power than any other console, experience immersive true 4K gaming when paired with a 4K display, such as Samsung's flagship QLED TV.

The console will also be immediately compatible with all existing Xbox One games.

As for design, the One X is smaller than the One S and it is also thinner with a smaller footprint according to reports.

That's why Microsoft's Xbox One X, retailing for $500, appears to be a risk for Microsoft.

Britain eyes Brexit deal 'like no other in history'
Brexit minister David Davis will be in Brussels for the first day of formal negotiations. Also up for discussion is how big the so-called "divorce bill" will be.

Announced during the Xbox E3 2017 Briefing, Original Xbox games are going to begin being added to the Xbox One backward compatibility program later this year (2017). Xbox head Phil Spencer believes that the PS4 Pro (or PS4) can not compete with the Xbox One X. The executive told Eurogamer: "I look at Pro as more of a competitor to S than I do to Xbox One X. This is a true 4K console". Even if you don't have a 4K television, the console will use a technique called supersampling to enhance the clarity and color of whatever it's showing. Even more surprising was that the team was actually testing the game out for Switch past year!

The PlayStation 4 Pro was released in November 2016, which means that it is still a baby by console standards.

If one ignores the price, however, the Xbox One X appears to be fitting for this era. Games included in the Xbox One X are "Metro: Exodus", "Dragonball Fighter Z", "Assassin's Creed: Origins", "Deep Rock Galactic" among others. And I think that's because Microsoft hasn't necessarily been reinventing, they've been refining and making it more powerful.

So what they're basically getting at is a strategy whereby selling a lower number of consoles initially really isn't a big deal, just as long as these select gamers then go out and buy a ton of games. "I don't think that's the way consoles are going to go". The upcoming game is created to be made available on all platforms including the newly announced Xbox One X as well as PC. Hopefully we'll see more Xbox 360 games make the cut as well - some Radiant Silvergun and Split/Second would do us a lot of good.
