Microsoft isn't making a profit with their new Xbox One X console

Microsoft isn't making a profit with their new Xbox One X console

Many hoped that after the successful launch of Xbox 360 backwards compatibility on Xbox One that Microsoft would extend this support to the original Xbox.

Later, when asked if the console would be sold at a loss, Spencer chose to avoid the question with his words.

On June 11 Microsoft revealed in E3 2017 that Xbox One X will cost $499 Dollars. This, of course, made it curious when there was no mention of VR on stage this year.

Ruddy could not say, however, that Trump suggested that to him directly. "There's some real conflicts", Ruddy said. Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, said Ruddy "never spoke to the president regarding this issue".

This comes on the back of several analysts saying that the Xbox One X's price point of $649 AUD is too much. I said. "I didn't answer it that way", he responded, intentionally not offering more detail.

Sure, you'll be able to play original Xbox games on Xbox One soon, but don't expect the library available to be as extensive as Xbox 360's. How does "The World's Most Powerful Console", according to Microsoft, compare to the PlayStation 4 Pro? To what degree, however, is unknown. Throw in the UHD Blu-ray player, 4K streaming capabilities, HDR support, and Dolby Atmos, $499 is lower than anyone thought the console would be when it was announced. From what we can tell, it will offer more power than the PS4 Pro rival. "If you're a high-end gamer and you want the absolute best experience possible there's no place you'll find a better performance to price ratio than Xbox One X", he said. "The money-making part is in selling games". It's a more powerful Xbox One, that will play some games in "True" Native 4K, while others will use methods like reprojection and checkerboard rendering to fill a 2160p framebuffer. "A lot of our games, nearly 20 of them in the show, are going to be on Windows too".

Microsoft showed off dozens of games at E3, ranging from the super-slick racing simulator Forza Motorsport 7 to the rollicking, social pirate game Sea of Thieves to Anthem, an astonishing-looking sci-fi action game developed by BioWare in Edmonton, creators of the award-winning Mass Effect franchise.
