Xbox One X won't turn a profit for Microsoft

Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft's Xbox division, said the console would be able to play games at 4K resolution while the system would run games at 60 frames per second (fps).

Some experts say £449 is too much for what is basically a more powerful version of the existing Xbox One S. "We had 42 games, 22 of them with console exclusivity that I could put on-stage that all are games where you could see the dates for them and when they're coming", Spencer said.

A new game called "Metro: Exodus" takes advantage of the Xbox One X's processing power to dazzle with 4K visuals (alongside a mountain of visual detail).

It should also be noted that the price of the components used in manufacturing hardware eventually comes down, which means that the manufacturing cost of the Xbox One X should decrease after a while.




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. How does "The World's Most Powerful Console", according to Microsoft, compare to the PlayStation 4 Pro?

During the presentation, Spencer also announced that the device has 12GB of RAM, compared to 8GB of PS4 Pro, and 6 teraflops graphics processing power compared to Sony's 4.12. And, as a result, he sees the PS4 Pro as "more of a competitor to [Xbox One] S than I do to Xbox One X".

At that price, the Xbox One X does not come with any accessories or any games. That's £100 more than Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro which was released a year ago.

"That is a hell of a lot of money to fork out, for what would be for some an upgrade, rather than a brand new console experience - especially if you're trying to get new people on to the platform against PlayStation or against PC". With a 2.1 GHz 8-core AMD chip, the Sony console is slightly behind the 2.3 GHz 8-core AMD CPU that Microsoft's newest console uses.
