This Week In The Business: Xbox One Stand-Off

19 June 2017

Sony's PS4 Pro comes out with a powerful CPU too, and is just marginally behind that of the XBOX One X. The console comes out with an octa-cored CPU that is clocked in at 2.1 GHz.

Ben Gilbert of Business Insider points on two main reasons that the Xbox One X console is expensive. The company explained that Xbox One X would eventually be able to run its Mixed Reality headsets, made by manufacturers such as Acer and HP.

Microsoft finally unveiled the new Xbox One X, previously codenamed Project Scorpio.

"We have a list of original Xbox games that might come but it won't be as big as Xbox 360 BC, I'll tell people that", Spencer said in a recent interview with Giant Bomb.

Ryan thinks game makers will make one enhanced version that will work identically on both Xbox One X and PS4 Pro.

As we've reported earlier, Tiago Sousa, a developer at id Software, criticized the use of six or more teraflops of power in the consoles to achieve 4K gaming.

Besides bringing backward compatibility for original Xbox games to Xbox One, Spencer has also expressed interest in doing something similar on PC.

The new controller will offer compatibility with the Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.

Microsoft backed up the X's announcement by showing off a large number of games that were either exclusive to the Xbox One or timed exclusives, such as Dragon Ball Fighters Z, BioWare's upcoming game Anthem, and more.

It's an opinion shared by ArsTechnica, which says that the new console's added graphics power is "noticeable", but won't "wow" users in the same way that the transition from standard to high definition visuals did. So in that world, I have to show them an experience that's demonstrably better. "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". To maximize the capabilities of the console, gamers will also need to purchase a 4K TV, which costs at least $500 for a decent one.

Recently, Microsoft announced that Original Xbox games will be playable as backwards compatible titles later this year. Microsoft likely makes far more money from Xbox Live Gold subscriptions, for instance, than it does from Xbox One hardware sales.

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