Microsoft bets gaming consoles have a future

E3-2017-Xbox-Media-Showcase-1

While the Xbox One X was the main headline from Microsoft's E3 2017 event, only two new exclusives for the Xbox One X and Xbox One were announced. These games are playable on various consoles, of which the most famous are the Microsoft Xbox, Sony PlayStation, Nintendo Game Cube, and Nintendo Wii.

Earlier in the week during its E3 2017 press conference, Microsoft shocked the gaming world by finally revealing the final name, price and release date of the Xbox One X (formerly known as Project Scorpio). This is across the board whether you're playing on PC or the Xbox One X. This, we think you'll agree, is an absolutely absurd file size, and it's hard to believe that any game would take up that much space, even with all of those ultra HD assets.

He acknowledged that the Xbox One X is more than capable of running VR. However, when Forza Motorsport 7 is released on September 29, the download size will hit three digits. And now with the Xbox One S and the incoming Xbox One X, Spencer is happy with the company's hardware front. For gamers who do not want to shell out the extra cash for a 4K TV and who are not that big on graphics, the $299 Xbox One S and PlayStation 4 are better options. Nonetheless, Sony's Jim Ryan stated that the power advantage of the Xbox One X over the Playstation 4 Pro won't be that evident when it rolls out this winter.

But Penello also argues that having PC-style power tiers for consoles doesn't mean games targeting the One X will be held back by the existence of lower-powered alternatives.

"From a developer's standpoint, [Xbox One X] is the most developer-friendly console we have ever worked with", he said.

Guardians was one of the most anticipated Xbox One game but it launched with a dynamic resolution that had a upper limit of 1080p. The kinds of customers who will be attracted to the Xbox One X tend to be the best game customers of all, Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft's Xbox operations, said in a recent interview with Business Insider. "I think we have to moderate the temperature a bit around where we are and not tell people this is the year of VR. And I think a lot of the other people have a current generation console and are looking for a premium experience and something that really looks different".
