Sony can't compete with the Xbox One X

Microsoft announces Xbox One X as 'world's most powerful console'

Microsoft announces Xbox One X as 'world's most powerful console'

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. We've now learned more about the business side for the Xbox One X, and while the company isn't making on profit on the $500 console, it's not exactly clear if Microsoft is incurring a loss.

Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, announced at E3 that every game created across the Xbox One family would play better on the Xbox One X. According to Spencer the new console will feature better textures, smoother frame rates and faster load times. Indeed, the custom Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) GPU in the newest Xbox can run at 6 teraflops, compared to the Sony console which comes with an AMD Polaris graphics card that is capable of running at 4.2 teraflops. "The majority of our consoles that are sold next year will be [Xbox One] S. That has always been the plan", Spencer said.

The controller is compatible with the Xbox One, Xbox One S and the upcoming Xbox One X. It is now unknown if it will be compatible with PC upon release.

"I've said I want to bring Game Pass to the PC".

If you compare the specifications of the two, the Xbox One X does have an edge over its rival.

In addition to the criminal investigation, police and firefighters are continuing painstaking efforts to locate the victims. Buildings in London, Manchester and Plymouth are among those where problem cladding has been identified.

Nevertheless, the current take is that VR support will be available on Xbox One X, and will be a part of Xbox's future. I don't know anything about what's in other people's deals.

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.

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

"I could stand up and show some videos of things I think might come in the next three years".

In an interview with Business Insider, Spencer revealed that, despite the $499 price tag, Microsoft will not be making money for each purchased unit of the console.
