PS4 Pro Competes With Xbox One S, Not Xbox One X

Original Xbox backward compatibility with Xbox One was one of the major announcements that came from Phil Spencer at E3 2017.

The Xbox One X, dubbed the world's most powerful games console, was unveiled by Microsoft on Sunday. As we know already, many 360 games are compatible with Xbox One, but this week they announced their expansion on that with the classic Xbox library. The question is, will they? This makes it possible to have LAN parties where you can play supported games by plugging in an Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

In an interview with Eurogamer (which we saw via The Verge), Spencer claimed that Microsoft's new console is in "a different league" compared with Sony's top-of-the-line gaming machine, because it is the only "true 4K console".

"I look at Pro as more of a competitor to S than I do to Xbox One X", he explained. Obviously when we think about UWP and the ability for games to run across console and PC, we're getting closer. The Xbox One X is the more powerful console when compared to the PS4 Pro - and for $100 more, it absolutely has to be.

"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". To highlight the games that take advantage of the Xbox One X, Microsoft has released a series of badges to appear on game boxes and digital download pages to highlight what they do on the new system.

"The gaming industry is going to change more in the next five years than it has done in the past 30". They're Crimson Skies, and Fuzion Frenzy.

KitGuru Says: While I'm not a fan of the original Xbox controller, I can appreciate that it'll bring a lot of nostalgia for original Xbox users.

The first game that will he released with the console is Forza Motorsport 7, which will run at 4K/60 FPS, and will feature over 700 cars.

Conspicuous in their absence, however, were Microsoft's two biggest homegrown franchises, Halo and Gears of War. He said the new device is the smallest Xbox that has been created, but it offers much more features than the older models.

Still, not even a little Halo 6 tease?

Microsoft first revealed that the Xbox One X was under development a year ago, giving it the code name Project Scorpio.
