The Xbox One X also has a superior optical drive, as the new unit comes equipped with a 4K/HDR capable Blu-ray drive, compared to the PlayStation 4 Pro which comes with an older Blu-ray/DVD drive. It has eight custom x86 cores clocked at 2.3GHz, 6 teraflops of graphics performance and 12GB of GDDR5 RAM. "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".
Even at E3 the games that most of us got excited for are all 3rd party, and you cant help but wonder if the Xbox One X will still be playing second fiddle to PS4 Pro come the holidays. "It's the same with Xbox One X. We've been meeting with developers, you heard EA on our stage saying they're going to optimize this because they want to show consumers the most incredible version of their games, and the Xbox One X is going to deliver that for them". It seems clear that Microsoft isn't anxious about that price gap between the two consoles since the company doesn't see them as direct competitors. Unsurprisingly, Microsoft isn't making money each of those consoles sold. He revealed that streaming on Xbox One X is limited to 720p/1080p at 60 fps since 4K requires a lot of bandwidth.
Along with these announcements, the division's head Phil Spencer confirmed that the original Xbox games will be coming to the console under its backwards compatibility program.
"So that's the point that I love to say, 'What kind of gamer are you?' and let you decide what's best for you".
Spencer also added that he's been focused on hardware innovation, and that the Xbox One S and One X are the great products of that work.
"Halo and Gears are both in good hands, and I'm going to pick exactly the word you used: I don't want to tease anybody", Spencer said. Upcoming Xbox games, and many older games, will run smoother and look noticeably better when played on the X.
