Microsoft expects consumers to 'figure out' which Xbox is which

The Xbox One X also delivers the most powerful GPU setup of the three consoles, with the forthcoming Microsoft console capable of the 6 tflop that Microsoft promised.

Sony's Jim Ryan stated that the power advantage of the Xbox One X over the Playstation 4 Pro won't be that evident when it rolls out this winter.

While Microsoft is offering gamers a premium experience, it isn't really charging them a premium to get it, even in spite of the Xbox One X's relatively high price.

Instead, a host of brand new titles were revealed on the same day as the upcoming super console Xbox One X.

U.S. retail shares hit as sales fall in May
About 7.1 billion shares changed hands in U.S. exchanges, above the 6.8 billion daily average over the last 20 sessions. Plus, Whole Foods stock dragged down; 2 tech stocks to buy on the dip; and a big win for Microsoft options traders.

Speaking to Polygon, Microsoft's corporate vice president of Xbox and Windows Gaming Mike Ybarra said that it couldn't have achieved the level of tech the company desired at a $339 price point. That being said, if we're aiming for parity with the Xbox One X, it has to be included. What it loses in terms of processing, it gains in VR and a lower price point. This made the game a ideal candidate for one of Xbox Live's first online multiplayer games, one which would be great to see again on Xbox One.

Many of the Xbox One X games running at 4K were impressive, but we've sent plenty of other titles at E3 whose final releases didn't live up to their earlier versions. With 326GB/sec memory bandwidth, game graphics, Microsoft claims, will be faster and more detailed. The primary way we're going to bring them in is by going to them, being on the devices they use, making communities that are unified and making an experience that speaks. Very soon will be an additional 42 games, including 22 in the project is a console exclusive. The Nintendo Switch is dramatically lacking content, although this is set to change over time, given it is a newly released console., and those games that have been released were generally disappointing. Maybe that's why Microsoft launched the Xbox One in 2013 at the same price the Xbox One X now sells for - it knows players would want to make the jump from the Xbox 360. In fact, those who do not wish to go the console way can even build a decent gaming PC for less than US$500.

The new console follows Sony's launch late a year ago of the PlayStation 4 Pro, a higher-octane gaming console that also supports 4K resolution and HDR. Anyone who purchased the PS4 Pro console may feel inferior even after spending $400 while the Xbox One X costs about $500.
