Xbox One X preview

Microsoft unveils new gaming system as Xbox One X

Yes, we are referring to Project Scorpio which now has an official name: Xbox One X.

Xbox One X won't be out until November this year.

During an interview with Business Insider, Phil Spencer, head of Xbox division, gave a simple "no" when the media asked if sales of Xbox One X will generate profits for Microsoft. With a 2.1 GHz 8-core AMD chip, the Sony console is slightly behind the 2.3 GHz 8-core AMD CPU that Microsoft's newest console uses. "If you just look at the specs of what this box is, it's in a different league than any other console that's out there".

"The money-making part is in selling games", he said, showing that Microsoft will rely on titles to drive up its profit from the Xbox One X. "I'll tell you, I've never heard a developer say publicly or privately that somehow they're held back".

Speaking to Giant Bomb (via Gamespot), Spencer said that supporting original Xbox games on Xbox One is more technically challenging than Xbox 360, and touched on the rights issue as another bump in the road. Even though the Xbox One X can pump out true 4K, high dynamic range visuals and Dolby Atmos audio for the growing number of TVs and sound systems that support these cool technologies, who is this sleek, expensive beast aimed at?

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.

Currently, the PS4 Pro sells for $399 while the Xbox One will cost $100 more.

"I've said I want to bring Game Pass to the PC". Destiny 2, Call of Duty: WWII and Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 are all games that haven't yet been confirmed to look best on One X.

Microsoft showed off dozens of games at E3, ranging from the super-slick racing simulator Forza Motorsport 7 to the rollicking, social pirate game Sea of Thieves to Anthem, an astonishing-looking sci-fi action game developed by BioWare in Edmonton, creators of the award-winning Mass Effect franchise.
