Xbox One X will not generate profits for Microsoft

We didn't get get any hint on how numerous original Xbox games would be coming to the program, but Spencer said to Giant Bomb after the show that "It won't be as big as Xbox 360, I'll tell people that".

By comparison, the PS4 Pro has 4.2 teraflops, the standard Xbox One has 1.31 teraflops, and the standard PlayStation 4 has 1.84 teraflops.

Xbox One X has been unveiled at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2017, shedding its previous name as Project Scorpio.

The confusion also comes because earlier this week, The Wall Street Journal had reported that Xbox Marketing Chief Mike Nichols told them Xbox One X would not be able to work with VR headsets.

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.

Supreme Court strikes down sex offender social media ban

It is fine to market your console as the most powerful in the world, IT IS the most powerful in the world. "But I also know that in the gaming space, having a premium experience for the customer that wants that is critical", Spencer said. "If you're on PC you're going to be about $1500 or so, so that's another area", Ybarra said. "Put the disc in, downloads game, play".

I wondered, though, if the fact that games must be created to run on any Xbox One console - whether the original Xbox One released in 2013, the current Xbox One S or the upcoming Xbox One X - might limit the potential of the new console's incredible raw horsepower.

"Developers will build (games for) PC, they'll build PlayStation, they'll build Xbox, they might build Nintendo". The company did announce "Sea of Thieves", "Crackdown 3", "State of Decay 2" and "Forza Motorsport 7", but all of those were already known about prior to E3 2017. 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.

Still, not even a little Halo 6 tease?
