Sony can't compete with the Xbox One X

Sony can't compete with the Xbox One X”

For now, though? If you want the most bleeding edge Xbox One experience possible, there's a console for you - it's just gonna cost ya. Recently Corporate Vice President at Xbox, Mike Ybarra talked a little about the upcoming features and updates planned for the Xbox One X in his tweets.

As for the PS4 Pro, it comes with an AMD Polaris graphics with 4.2 teraflops of performance and 8GB of GDDR5 RAM. The software will keep getting updates across all platforms for the Xbox One.

The controller is compatible with the Xbox One, Xbox One S and the upcoming Xbox One X. It is now unknown if it will be compatible with PC upon release.

The Xbox One X has a graphics processing unit (GPU) that is about 40 percent faster compared to the PlayStation 4 Pro, Spencer claims. It seems clear that Microsoft isn't anxious about that price gap between the two consoles since the company doesn't see them as direct competitors.

KitGuru Says: While I'm not a fan of the original Xbox controller, I can appreciate that it'll bring a lot of nostalgia for original Xbox users. He admitted there's "no doubt" Microsoft will sell more $379 Xbox One S consoles next year than they will Xbox One Xs.

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.

At that price, the Xbox One X does not come with any accessories or any games. "The money-making part is in selling games", said the Xbox boss. "People know we have "Gears" and "Halo" in our portfolio, and we're working on other things that aren't on this list..."

The fact that Microsoft is not making a profit on the Xbox One X now, however, could not be considered surprising at all.

According to Spencer, Microsoft's mindset is that the hardware component of the video game console business is not that part that will make money for companies.
