Phil Spencer wants to extend Xbox backwards compatibility to PC

Microsoft executive Dave McCarthy wanted to defend the increase in the price of Xbox One X, reassuring customers that the hardware specs of this latest console warrant the $499.00 price tag.

As for the PS4 Pro, it comes with an AMD Polaris graphics with 4.2 teraflops of performance and 8GB of GDDR5 RAM. It's expensive compared to other game consoles, and it's expensive when you're not comparing it to anything.

So if you pre-order Xbox One X you get to not only enjoy a 1 month Xbox Game Pass trial, but you also get to get your hands on a 14 day Xbox Live Gold trial as well. Then Sony released the PlayStation 4 Pro, and around the same time PlayStation VR.

The system, which runs games at 60fps (frames per second), is "the most powerful console ever made", Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, told the BBC.

Microsoft has come under fire from some critics who worry the company's new Xbox One X is overpriced.

Do you think Xbox One X will help Microsoft win the holiday period?

The Xbox 360 backwards compatibility program is a huge success which allowed gamers to experience the most awesome titles from the past. The company has officially named the product the Xbox One X, after revealing it at the E3 games show in Los Angeles before the official opening.

"We don't have the deep catalog of games on PC that we do on console, so I've had some pushback from the marketing team that, well it wouldn't necessarily be the best feature right now, because we won't have enough games, but I just want to start". He was also asked about the UI for Xbox One X and whether it will be the same as the standard Xbox One.

Instead, Microsoft chose to focus on highlighting the device's powerful hardware: The Xbox One X, which was previously known under the code name "Project Scorpio", features a 172MHz graphics processing engine capable of processing 6 teraflops. It's a more powerful Xbox One, that will play some games in "True" Native 4K, while others will use methods like reprojection and checkerboard rendering to fill a 2160p framebuffer.

Xbox One X will launch on 7 November 2017 alongside Xbox exclusive action game Crackdown 3. Xbox one X supports 4K gaming.
