Microsoft unveils new gaming system as Xbox One X

Xbox One X Lead

This means that the Xbox One X has a roughly 40% power margin over the PlayStation 4 Pro. This is particularly important for rendering high res textures, since both consoles aim to offer 4K quality.

Like most consoles before it, The Xbox One X will be a loss leader, with Microsoft taking a hit on the hardware, so they can make it up later on software sales.

By comparison, the PS4 Pro has 4.2 teraflops, the standard Xbox One has 1.31 teraflops, and the standard PlayStation 4 has 1.84 teraflops. This is true as the Xbox One X does feature a customized AMD graphics capable of 6 teraflops of performance alongside 12GB of GDDR5 RAM.

Although you can capture videos at 4K/60 fps on the Xbox One X.

Retirement isn't on Jimmie Johnson's mind
Seven-time NASCAR Cup champion Jimmie Johnson signed a three-year contract extension to remain at Hendrick Motorsports through 2020, the organization announced Friday.


Spencer gave two reasons for the smaller library of compatible original Xbox games on the Xbox One. When asked if each unit sold would result in lost profit for Microsoft, Spencer stated "I didn't answer it that way". On paper, it's clear that the PS4 Pro is competing with the Xbox One S, rather than the Xbox One X. Spencer claims that the Xbox One X is on another level compared to Sony's top end console to date.

The Original Xbox Backwards Compatibility was announced at E3 2017, but to less fanfare than the 360 Backwards Compatibility reveal at E3 2015.

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. While that's a lot of money for a machine that plays games, it's a lot less than you'd pay for a similarly specced PC. We didn't get get any hint on how numerous original Xbox games would be coming to the program, but Spencer said to Giant Bomb after the show that "It won't be as big as Xbox 360, I'll tell people that".

"The money-making part is in selling games".
