Microsoft Premieres Xbox One X, World's Most Powerful Console

Microsoft Premieres Xbox One X, World's Most Powerful Console”

The company delivered this E3 when head of Xbox Phil Spencer took the stage to confirm that original Xbox games will be playable later this year on Xbox One. The Xbox One games and accessories you already own are compatible with Xbox One X, so if you're an Xbox gamer, chances are you already have a library of games that will look and play better on Xbox One X.

In an interview with Business Insider, Spencer revealed that, despite the $499 price tag, Microsoft will not be making money for each purchased unit of the console. "The money-making part is in selling games".

Indeed. Much of the money that any platform holder makes is from software sales (that's why console games are more expensive than their counterparts on PC), and with Xbox One X this will be no different.

We've now learned more about the business side for the Xbox One X, and while the company isn't making on profit on the $500 console, it's not exactly clear if Microsoft is incurring a loss.

Xbox One is the only console system created to play the best games of the past, present and future.

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.

It is fine to market your console as the most powerful in the world, IT IS the most powerful in the world. Sony's mid-gen upgrade has four times more GPU power than Xbox One S.

The Xbox One X is all set to come out near the holiday season on 7th November 2017 for $499.

The Xbox Backwards Compatibility for the Xbox One will drop later this year - but it will NOT be as extensive as Xbox 360 backwards compatibility lineup. A host of these titles will be enhanced to run in true 4K, and many will be available at Xbox One X launch.

Xbox One X Price Too Steep?

One of the big announcements from Microsoft at E3 this year was their plans to support OG Xbox backward compatibility on Xbox One.
