E3 2017: Microsoft unveils Xbox One X

The law of diminishing returns plays a role here, an argument which states that as more innovation is introduced, the chances to innovate further become narrower.

Geoff Knightly, host behind The Game Awards, announced today via Twitter that the Xbox One X will be priced at $499. If major new titles such as Assassin's Creed Origins, Anthem and Metro Exodus look significantly better on Xbox One X, the machine could establish itself as the premium choice for the "hardcore" audience.

The Minecraft "Super Duper Graphics Pack" update launches this fall. In addition, the Xbox One X will ship with 6 teraflops of graphical power - higher than the PS4 Pro - and a custom GPU engine on Scorpio that functions at 1172Mhz, a huge increase over the Xbox One's 853MHz.

Xbox One: Whether it's a game, Blu-ray movie, or streaming video, the Xbox One tops out at 1080p Full HD resolution. Simply put, while the Xbox One X bears a lot more power than the PS4 Pro, Sony's machine is pretty powerful already - the Xbox One X in theory can easily surpass the PS4 Pro, but in practice? The console will launch on the 7 of November 2017 and will retail at the price of $500. "There's nothing technically that would keep any game a console game maker is building who wants to take advantage of the capability here from making Xbox One X the very best version of every one of those games". The X will have even more trouble, because the S is at $249 and so is the PS4.

Spencer also mentioned that fact that all the first-party titles supported by Microsoft (such as Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4 and others) will be getting free upgrades to the Xbox One X console. This console will be backward compatible that doesn't mean all the games would be working but only few which will be digitally rendered and can be downloaded from the store.

Microsoft's latest console is part of an effort to gain ground against Sony's PlayStation 4. Isn't "the most powerful console ever" right up their alley? As it stands, it may prove a luxury purchase until - inevitably - the price tumbles.
