Will not make any money with $500 Xbox One X: Microsoft executive

A number of developers have already chimed in with their thoughts on the console, and now Paul Bettner of Super Lucky's Tale developer Playful has spoken about the system as well. The company showcased an array of promising games: from AAA titles like Forza 7, Sea of Thieves, and State of Decay 2, to smaller titles like The Last Night, Ori and the Will of the Wisp, Cuphead, and Ashen, all of which are console exclusive or console launch exclusive to Xbox One. Those who buy the consoles from Best Buy will get the controller as well as three months of Xbox Live Gold. At the price that the XBOX One X comes in at, this was highly expected.

Again, both the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro deliver full HDR support, while the Nintendo Switch is not able to provide this display technology.

According to the Xbox head, investing in software is important to Microsoft. That being said, if we're aiming for parity with the Xbox One X, it has to be included.

Microsoft's E3 conference featured plenty of games spanning different genres, but the focal point of the show was their upcoming hardware upgrade.

Broadcast for the first time in 4K UHD on Mixer, Xbox showcased a record 42 games in its briefing including 22 with console exclusivity from creators large and small.

If one ignores the price, however, the Xbox One X appears to be fitting for this era.

Microsoft also claim the Xbox One X is "40 per cent more powerful than any other console".

Microsoft could announce the Games with Gold July 2017 lineup this Wednesday, leaving fans plenty of time to still pick up the games now available. There was a great story, massive open world, and excellent combat - all of which made Jade Empire a must-play title for everyone on the Xbox back in 2005, even if you didn't enjoy role-playing experiences in the first place.

"Xbox One X, you know, we'll see". It feels like we're heading into a new era for gaming, but one console appears to be missing from this. The Xbox One X is clocked at 2.3GHz, with the PS4 Pro processor speed being 2.1GHz.

By looking at Sony's history of console launches, we think that the PS5 will be released before 2020.

As far as the games are concerned, there seems no way game developers will go to dramatically change the quality of graphics between the two consoles.

It is obviously asking too much for consoles of the power of the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro to be portable as well, and indeed it is not possible to game on either the Sony or Microsoft machine without a monitor. In fact, those who do not wish to go the console way can even build a decent gaming PC for less than US$500. It has been said that Microsoft is not making any money from the sale of Xbox One X consoles even when they are priced at $499.
