Microsoft Defends Xbox One X's $499 Pricepoint


Having said that, if you are a budget gamer, you can run the same processors, GPU and RAM for more than 3 to 4 years easily.

In an Interview with Vice's Waypoint, Phil Spencer said that the company had a focus prioritized towards hardware and after that, Xbox Live.

After several months of anticipation, Microsoft officially announces the key details of its upcoming Xbox Project Scorpio, with the console's official name, the Xbox One X. The tech giant touted its highly anticipated gaming system as the most powerful console ever created. Players can also see farther within the game's world at any given point and can add shine and texture to the blocks in their game that really pop in the 4K resolution.

Once again, Microsoft has chose to slap its latest console with a $500 starting price.

Xbox One X is the elite professional console of the two.

According to the rumor mill, Grand Theft Auto 6 from Rockstar Games will be the first game to be released for the PS5.

"We're gonna sell more Xbox One S consoles next year than we will Xbox One X", he said.

Apparently though, there's a method to Microsoft's madness.

Whenever a new games console is designed and manufactured it requires a huge amount of upfront costs. Is it just an overpriced, overhyped console that takes advantage of a display technology not everyone has access to? The original Xbox One was simply stretched too thin. I found, not only from a Microsoft perspective but an industry perspective, I don't know why that has to become the dialogue. I'm gonna bet a large percentage of those people have a current-generation console already. While I can appreciate bling like anyone else, the idea of dropping over double the price on a console to feel like I'm the "best of the best" isn't going to make the cut for my household. The One S comes in white variant only, meanwhile, more likely the One X will be available in black only for the time being. But one, let's really usher in true 4K where developers don't have to think about, 'Wow, how do we stretch this and make it really work?' We needed to deliver that to consumers.

For the starters, PC games are played on one's personal computer, while the consoles games are manufactured by another company specifically to play intense games. That's because the components required to power the level of graphical fidelity the box offers are expensive. The question at hand was, "Will the backward compatible original Xbox games come with achievements, even though achievements were introduced on the 360?".

But that's not unusual.
