Deja-Vu as Microsoft Tries to Justify the $500 Xbox One X


Not the PlayStation 4 Pro's kind of 4K, which employs techniques and clever processing to deliver 4K resolution, but true, native 4K gaming - sometimes even at 60 fps. Xbox head Phil Spencer believes that the PS4 Pro (or PS4) can not compete with the Xbox One X. The executive told Eurogamer: "I look at Pro as more of a competitor to S than I do to Xbox One X. This is a true 4K console".

You might think it's insane that Microsoft is once again introducing a new game console with a $500 price.

"So if they think it's 60fps and that's gonna help them, in terms of selling more copies of the game, they're gonna be all in".

Anyone who chooses to download their PS4 or Xbox One games will be used to seeing download sizes ranging from 35-50GB. The same ability will be coming to original Xbox games in the near future, though it looks like it won't be on the same level as the 360.

Xbox One X is powered by eight core CPU at 2.3GHz with 1TB and is backed up with 12GB of GDDR5 RAM at 6.8GHz and with 6teraflop GPU at 1,172 MHz.

Microsoft's new high-end Xbox One X console will release on November 7, 2017 for $499.

"They're working hard and they're doing some good things, they're doing many good things, but we've been in Europe for a long, long time now, and we take Europe very, very seriously". You can go with Xbox One S, which costs $249 to $299 and enjoy over a hundred games in 4K, HDR, and Dolby Atmos. It will be crowned the world's most powerful gaming console - and that is a statement to behold within the gaming community. Xbox One X makes your existing library even better, with better textures, smoother framerates and faster load times, even on a 1080p TV. Microsoft listed the game for pre-order on their Windows 10 Store, and you can see the approximate size in between the Reggie heads. On PC I've seen them as high as 80GB.

When we looked at the overall design, we could do less memory.
