Microsoft Explains Why Xbox One X Is Worth $100 Premium

At around £100 more than the PS4 Pro, some feel the price of the Xbox One X is too high, but this price will still not make a profit for Microsoft.

When asked by PC Gamer whether this could also extend to PC, Xbox boss Phil Spencer suggested this could well be the case. Not to mention, the Xbox one X will work with all existing Xbox one accessories, games, which will run on 4k even though they only ran at a maximum of 1080p on the console predecessor, and backwards compatible Xbox 360 games. The system will be capable of 4K/HDR gaming with Dolby Atmos Support as will feature a 4K Blu-Ray Drive. So we'll be taking a look at Microsoft's push with the Xbox One X (the official name of what was formerly known as Project Scorpio) and Sony's attempt at keeping the focus on their own consoles and their upcoming library. So, in terms of the hardware inside the console, you're getting your money's worth, especially if you consider you're benefitting from Microsoft's negotiating clout with the suppliers who provide the parts for the Xbox One X.

This beastly console will launch with six teraflops, 12GB of memory, 326GB of bandwidth and constant 4k resolution.

Microsoft showcased 42 titles at E3 which will be available at the same time as the console, including 22 exclusive games. "So I'm putting a lot of pressure on the team to go get enough content lined up to do something on the PC, and then make sure we have a long-term commitment to build".

"My friend Khadjia lives on the 20th floor of Grenfell Tower . we can't get through to her", reads one, posted on a bus stop. Standard versions use plastic such as polythene for the core, while more expensive variants use fire-resistant material.

For his part, Spencer believes the Xbox One X is on an island all its own in the console market and doesn't actually have a competitor.

PC Gamer will be putting up the full interview with Spencer soon, but you can read the original article, plus a few extra quotes, right here. Xbox Game Pass lets you install select games directly to your Xbox.

The Xbox One X is all set to come out near the holiday season on 7th November 2017 for $499.
