E3 2017: Microsoft isn't making a profit on the Xbox One X

Justices side with Microsoft in Xbox 360 class action case

On June 11 Microsoft revealed in E3 2017 that Xbox One X will cost $499 Dollars. 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.

When Eurogamer brought up how Sony has deals with several third-party games, and how that could result in a parity requirement between PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, Spencer said, "There's nothing technically that would keep any game a console game maker is building who wants to take advantage of the capability here from making Xbox One X the very best version of every one of those games". The PS4, PS4 Slim, and PS4 Pro would seem to match up nicely with the Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Xbox One X. Microsoft apparently doesn't feel that way at all, and in a recent interview, Xbox head Phil Spencer made it clear that be believes the Xbox One X has no competitor at all.

During the presentation, Spencer also announced that the device has 12GB of RAM, compared to 8GB of PS4 Pro, and 6 teraflops graphics processing power compared to Sony's 4.12.




This comes on the back of several analysts saying that the Xbox One X's price point of $649 AUD is too much. "The majority of our consoles that are sold next year will be [Xbox One] S. That has always been the plan", Spencer said. As we know already, many 360 games are compatible with Xbox One, but this week they announced their expansion on that with the classic Xbox library. Recently Corporate Vice President at Xbox, Mike Ybarra talked a little about the upcoming features and updates planned for the Xbox One X in his tweets.

At $500, the new Xbox One X game console is expensive. "The focus I had on this show was games you're going to get to play in the next year". He was also asked about the UI for Xbox One X and whether it will be the same as the standard Xbox One.

"Not just more powerful hardware so we can get visual fidelity up, but also audio and how the game feels - the physical fidelity".
