Microsoft E3 Event Details - New Games and Backward Compatibility

19 June, 2017, 07:45 | Author: Oscar Goodwin

This badge can be applied retroactively to old games that have been updated, or added to new games that have used Microsoft's new developer tools. You will be able to play games in a 4K resolution, and it will also support HDR lighting effects, as well as a Dolby Atmos surround sound. It will ship with 6 teraflops of graphical power, more than its main competitor, the PS4 Pro, with 4.2 teraflops. The tech giant introduced the One X ahead of the E3 games show in Los Angeles, highlighting its ability to run games in 4K ultra-HD. He didn't necessarily name these techniques, but he did imply that more games would run at full-buffer 4K on Xbox One X compared to Pro.

Some gamers simply prefer console to PC, and perhaps those gamers will be willing to spend $250 more on the Xbox One X. But if you're going to pay a premium, why not go all the way? But while the company has raised the bar in terms of sheer power and performance, Microsoft's powerful gaming box still faces Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro, a $399 console that focuses on 4K gaming and streaming. Both systems increase the visual fidelity of existing games, and the Xbox One S even delivers a variety of 4K features at a much lower price.

Microsoft has unveiled the new souped-up version of its Xbox One console which was previously known as Project Scorpio. Xbox One X has great potential. Then again, if Microsoft successfully markets the console's true, native 4K gaming capabilities as an advantage over the PS4 Pro, it might just convince those on the fence. And that means bringing back games from the first-generation Xbox.

And while Sony started to sell its PS VR headset as an accessory to the PlayStation 4 a year ago, Microsoft kept mum on VR Sunday. Isn't "the most powerful console ever" right up their alley? The Xbox One was $100 more expensive than the PS4 when those systems launched in 2013, and that did not end up turning out very well for Microsoft. Aside from Forza Motorsport 7 nothing was revealed in this calibre.
