Xbox One X: Microsoft's Gaming Comeback or Just Another PS4 Pro?

Microsoft has announced its next game console Xbox One X. Touted as

"I look at Pro as more of a competitor to S than I do to Xbox One X", Spencer told Eurogamer. 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.

"This is the world's most powerful console, aimed at your gaming customer who's looking for the premier experience", Spencer said.

In an interview with BusinessInsider, when asked if the Xbox One X will be making Microsoft a profit, Phil Spencer has flatly answered "No".

The Xbox One X will arrive on November 7 with a $499 price tag, which is $100 more than the PlayStation 4 Pro. It is the most powerful console ever made, and Microsoft never backed away from saying it would have a premium price point, but still, some are feeling sticker shock given it's $100 more than PS4 Pro. The console is the most expensive of this generation for its capabilities, however, it seems that the company has not contemplated making money with this system.

The Xbox One X will be backwards-compatible with all existing Xbox One games and accessories, meaning players won't need to replace their collections should they decide to jump on board. He revealed that streaming on Xbox One X is limited to 720p/1080p at 60 fps since 4K requires a lot of bandwidth.

"The money-making part is in selling games". "The focus I had on this show was games you're going to get to play in the next year".

"Frankly, I loved the fact I didn't have to bring out "Gears" and "Halo" just to say, hey". He was also asked about the UI for Xbox One X and whether it will be the same as the standard Xbox One. Upcoming Xbox games, and many older games, will run smoother and look noticeably better when played on the X.

"I could stand up and show some videos of things I think might come in the next three years".

"Halo and Gears are both in good hands, and I'm going to pick exactly the word you used: I don't want to tease anybody", Spencer said.
