Microsoft E3 2017: Xbox One X Can Stand Vertically

Share

Up till now, there are only two original Xbox games that have been confirmed for the backwards compatibility library for Xbox One and they are Crimson Skies and Fuzion Frenzy.

Now that the Xbox One X has been unveiled, there's no doubt gamers everywhere are comparing it with Sony's premium console in order to decide which is more deserving of their hard-earned dollars.

The Xbox One X launches on November 7, priced at $500 in the US. Crimson's one of my favourites from the original Xbox - I thought it actually looked really good, it was one of the things, putting it on a 4k screen, I was a little anxious about how some of the old games would look. Big, triple A console games, I hear that and I'm committed to that. There are even small visual touches that add to a game's immersion, including shaking windscreen wipers on cars in Forza Motorsport 7.

Britain said on Friday that no deal could be struck on exiting the European Union unless the future relationship with the bloc was taken into account.

If there is one hardware product that has starred at E3 2017, this has been the brand new Xbox One X. Microsoft has made sure to have the most powerful console on the market while it has evaded the most controversial debates raised when Sony made a similar move with PS4 Pro. We'll have to wait a few more months to find out just how popular the "most powerful console on earth" becomes. We don't know how many classic Xbox games will be playable from the start, but we already know which games we want the most.

"So if they think it's 60fps and that's gonna help them, in terms of selling more copies of the game, they're gonna be all in". In a recent interview with Business Insider, Xbox boss Phil Spencer admitted that the company stands to make no money out of the sales.

"The original Xbox, OG Xbox, is a little bit easier, because that was an x86 chip it was running on". Microsoft had confirmed that from there on out the only 2TB systems would be special editions, like the Gears of War 4 edition Xbox One S. Thanks to this I've very rarely uninstalled games, building up a collection of over 70 that are now installed. As a reminder, Gears of War and Halo were completely absent from Microsoft's Sunday press briefing (and it looks like fans noticed), though the company announced earlier this week a new DLC for Halo Wars 2.
