Playful's Paul Bettner says Xbox One X is like a high-end PC

Xbox One is the only console system created to play the best games of the past, present and future.

Earlier this month, Microsoft slashed $50 off the Xbox One S ahead of its E3 press conference, which is a great opportunity to purchase the gaming console released almost a year ago.

Both the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro deliver 1TB of storage, with some observers surprised that Microsoft refrained from outranking Sony in this department. If your Xbox One or even Xbox 360 is on its last legs and you can't justify the price of the Xbox One X, that's probably your best option. What's more - it looks like Xbox One X is better than Microsoft's arch rival Sony PS4 Pro for developers! Phil Spencer has said in an E3 interview that the company is actually losing money with each console that is sold. When the PlayStation 5 is released, it is expected to have more than 10 teraflops of power with an AMD chip similar to the Xbox One X. There's no accounting for optimization of each individual game, and any PC gamer will tell you that some games just come up short in terms of performance, but the concept here is very solid. I think Microsoft still has some selling to do. "I find the whole discussion around safety with our game and that somehow we wouldn't take that as a top priority ... and frankly, through our parental controls on Xbox Live and everything else that we've done, shown that that's incredible important to us as a platform". We don't know how many classic Xbox games will be playable from the start, but we already know which games we want the most. Most of their fighters so far have been console exclusive.

Microsoft's recent announcement about the launch of their new console has people a little puzzled, especially for the new price tag of the Xbox One X. It is not the first time that Microsoft launches such an expensive console.

And what makes the Xbox One X so interesting for Microsoft is that the kind of folks who buy "premium" consoles like it and the PlayStation 4 Pro are the kind of folks who not only buy more games, they also tend to buy more accessories, and services than the average customer. For one, it boasts of powering 4K games, which means it uses high-end technology. Big, triple-A console games, I hear that and I'm committed to that.

While Xbox One X might have an edge over PS4 Pro on several fronts, much of that is lost against Nintendo Switch. "I don't think we want to see the death of games that have a beginning, a middle, and an end". The launch of the new Xbox One X will be on November 7. The emulation team are going two generations back, and in some cases, are going after games that have long since passed their expiration date when it comes to graphics and stability.
