E3 2017: Xbox One X Will Indeed Support VR

18 June, 2017, 12:26 | Author: Oscar Goodwin

Like most consoles before it, The Xbox One X will be a loss leader, with Microsoft taking a hit on the hardware, so they can make it up later on software sales. Throw in the UHD Blu-ray player, 4K streaming capabilities, HDR support, and Dolby Atmos, $499 is lower than anyone thought the console would be when it was announced.

The Xbox One X is coming later this year, and it's the most powerful console ever released. It offers an 8-core processor that clocks at 2.3 GHz. But, it has similar with the rest of the Xbox One systems. Let us know if you will pre-order Xbox One X, and what are your expectations from the console by commenting in the comments section below.

In addition to a more powerful GPU, the Xbox One X offers higher bandwidth compared to the PlayStation 4 Pro.

Microsoft has been keen to include its PC user base in future gaming plans as shown by the Xbox Play Anywhere initiative, which debuted past year.

Microsoft repeatedly mentioned that Xbox One X would be a premium console for a segment of consumers looking for 4K games.

While the debate on whether or not the Xbox One X is really worth $499 continues, Xbox head Phil Spencer revealed that Microsoft will not be making money for the Xbox One X units that will be sold. "The focus I had on this show was games you're going to get to play in the next year". In an interview with PC Gamer, Spencer expressed his hopes that the library will make its way to Windows 10 at some point in the future, accompanied by the Xbox Game Pass that launched last month. "People know we have "Gears" and "Halo" in our portfolio, and we're working on other things that aren't on this list..."

"I don't want to get into all the numbers, but in aggregate you should think about the hardware part of the console business is not the money-making part of the business", Spencer told Business Insider.
